Obama: GOP Agenda So Outdated, Like “Black-and-White TV” …Update: In Other Words, Back When the US Had Robust GDP – Unlike the Obama Years

Barack Obama slammed Republicans today for pushing free market capitalism at the Tampa convention.
It’s so “last century”… like “black-and-white tv.”

Obama thinks more big government socialism will do the trick.
The Hill reported:

President Obama blasted Republicans Saturday for an agenda he said was so “last century” that it was like watching “black-and-white TV.”

Obama addressed a campaign audience in Iowa as Democrats prepare to begin their convention next week.

The president said that Republican nominee Mitt Romney offered voters a “rerun” agenda with few details at the GOP convention, which ended on Thursday.

And, the crowd of idiots behind him just chuckled right along with him as if his statement was profound and really made sense.

UPDATE: Obama’s writers should have done their research before they wrote that line up on the TelePrompter.

Back in the heyday of the television, from 1947 to 1953, when more than half of Americans bought their first television set, the GDP was 4.3 Percent.
The GDP under Obama is a horrid 1.48 Percent.
Historically, from 1947 until 2012, the United States GDP Growth Rate averaged 3.3 Percent

    President Obama blasted Republicans Saturday for an agenda he said was so “last century” that it was like watching “black-and-white TV.”

    Left unmentioned is that his agenda hasn’t managed to produce squat in the way of anything beneficial.

    Jim – Do you know what makes me so sad about the Obama campaign’s insistence on disrespecting the ‘good old days’ – so to speak? They resent the fact that the GOP speakers and candidates are so rooted to traditional married parents – a man and a woman (and this is not airtight – Anne Romney says “Modern Family” is one her favorite shows and she says Mitt watches it with her – and I too like that show a lot – ironically – because it is very rooted in very Boy Scout like, honorable, traditional family values no matter whom is partnered with who).

    Democrats believe they can reach Americans by talking about the broken family without two parents in a stable home life. Democrats want to perpetuate the notion that – in absence of a father in the home – the good old plantation “Mastah” will take care of all their needs – and I say this believing – as I do – that there are more non-black folks on the government dole in any way shape or form – excluding entitlements like Medicare and Social Security – although these are indeed budget crushing entitlements – ) now days.

    Who on earth can argue that kids need a mom and dad in a stable home where the parents provide and work hard to improve their lives all along the journey of American life?

    Why is this idea so repulsive to so many Big Government believers? The cradle to grave Central Planners that Paul Ryan ranted about?

    In my opinion – this is what is so completely sad about the Democrat Party. They have embraced all these anti-family kidnappers – those Big Government folks who want to get their hands on your kids at age 3 and just run them like sheep until they die – all the while giving them just enough rent, just enough food money, just enough Sec. 8 housing subsidy, just enough of a handout or a free ride, just enough education, just enough health insurance – all in exchange for just shutting up, staying on the government plantation and showing up to vote like……twenty times or more every election year.

    Because just like Orwell warned us ALL about way back in 1949 – that’s almost 62 years ago folks – those nasty Central Planners of government have always thought they know better what’s good for us and how we all should live.

  • Kathteach

    BTW – to add to my long, late night rant above – let’s not forget how important it is to these Central Planners to not even let our “unwanted” children be born.

  • AlecJ

    Last century like the 80s and 90s when the economy thrived and American reigned through strength? Im not sure who would choose Obama’s years over the last century at this point. Then again, the guy isnt a thinker or a student of history. He just says things he thinks are clever no matter how sophomoric or naive.

    Im embarrassed by our President and thats sad.

  • Robert

    Judging from the results, Obama’s agenda

    is not so well suited to this century.

    Having a job is so Last Century! Now, with my modern cronyism you can even find a job!

    You have to get on Food Stamps, WIC or 99 weeks of unemployment paychecks to survive. Jobs are so Last Century!

    I remember when you could get on Welfare and never have to earn a living. Heck, I remember using the Community Reinvestment Act to shake-down banks for millions of dollars. I never had to get a job! Working in a honest job so last century!

    With my Cash 4 Clunkers, my Guns 4 Mexican Gangs, My Cash 4 Votes, my $4.00 per gallon Gas prices and my 0bamaCare Tax Waivers 4 my cronies – we don’t need any more jobs! It so last Century. It’s like watching colorized Black and White TV!

    While I was growing up I had so much money that I could buy loads of Weed, Coke and booze. I rolled cars for fun. When necessary I got a new Connecticut drivers license and social-security number. Now I have to cover my tracks with Eric Holder doing the dirty work. That was so last Century!

    My Aunty Zeituni has never had a job and has gotten free governmental housing; free government checks… not to mention a sleazy grant of asylum… proves that scamming government welfare system is the IN Thing! Working for a living is so last century!

    Anybody who disagrees with my crappy Marxists economic policies is a Racist! The colorized Race Card works! Just ask Joe Bozo. Running an honest campaign is so last Century!

    Let me be clear, I have killed so many jobs that I can’t even keep count. I especially like killing jobs in the energy sector. We need higher gas prices! We need higher dependency on foreign oil! Coal fired electric plants and their jobs is so Last Century – I bankrupt them!

    We need to push jobs overseas. We need to grovel for foreign oil. The Arabs would agree with me! Nuclear Energy is so Last Century!

    When I see the Flag and I hear that Last Century song I stand up, cup my hands under my nuts, and scowl at the Flag. The Flag is so last Century!

    When rapper Heavy D died I sent a heart felt letter of condolence personally signed by me because he was so this century! And, when the Navy Seal team died I ordered Davy Axelrod send their families a crappy “auto-pen” letter because… you know… they are so last century!

    Chris Tingles, with his toupee and silver hair is so last Century. It like watching Black and White TV… er.. I can’t see the Teleprompter. Please adjust it.

    If you like the way I have caused sky high unemployment and even higher gas prices vote for me. My job could be so Last Century!

    I could lose my job in less then three months! Send me $3,000.00 before midnight my campaign is so Bankrupt!

    My old campaign bus is spewing white smoke and Davy Axelrod and a new scam for my Hollywood Donors. It’s a colorized version of the Three Stooges scam. I can’t go into detail because it has not been hatch. My last scam failed.

    My Campaign is so Black and Blue it sucks. But, once I fleece my few Hollywood Donors out of every dime they have it will suck worse. Good day.

    #11 Limousine Larry – You and I are like minded individuals. Nicely written.

    AND you and I both know that we are speaking for literally millions of Americans who want a job and a better life than the one the Central Planners of the Obama Regime have designed and are – at this very moment – designing for the next four years of their reign – you know – where they can completely rule by Executive Fiat and bypass our Constitutional requirements for equal representation in America.

    that crowd behind the podium is really astonishing, they left their brains behind to follow a pied piper right over the cliff. I’ve never understood His appeal- He’s not Presidential, He’s a PunkAss.

    But PunkAss has stepped in his own too clever trap again, just as he did with his narcissistic, hypersensitive, unhip response tweet to the ‘chair’ which is now being mercilessly mocked.

    When PunkAss refers to “black-and-white-TV” he unintentionally causes people like me and you to recall that time when America’s Greatness was on full display, y’know like when Neil Armstrong set foot on the Moon! when the most heated argument was who was better, Mays or Mantle? when the biggest threat to America was Elvis’ hips. and The Beatles’ hair was too long.

    “Black-and-White-TV”? y’mean, Rawhide and Bonanza? y’mean, Jackie Gleason and Ed Sullivan?
    y’mean, The Rifleman and The Untouchables? y’mean Danny Thomas and Andy Griffith? y’mean Garry Moore, Durward Kirby and Carol Burnett? y’mean, Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Donna Reed, Eve Arden, Steve Allen and Ernie Kovacs? y’mean, THOSE were the Bad Times? really? really?!

    PunkAss unintentionally takes us back to the time when America was the “Light of the World”, when we would “…pay any price, bear any burden to assure the success and survival of LIBERTY”. What a JackAss.

    The a$$ doesn’t realize what a MIRACLE black and white TV was! Oh sure, the Brits “invented” TV, but WWII got in their way. It was American business that developed TV and put a TV in every home along with a chicken in every Sunday dinner pot. (No, “Mr President”, the “government” had nothing much to do with it.)

  • BarbaraS

    I have noticed for years now (since obama was elected) that the dims have come out of the closet with a bang. The had behind the scenes in order to get their agenda done secretly. They’re not even trying to hide their socialism any more. Obama has hidden behind the scenes also and let them stick their necks out so he could act like he’s squeaky clean and above the fray. He is now coming out of the closet himself. People think he’s touting socialism. He’s not. He’s touting communism. Great Britain is a socialist country but they still have free enterprise. Obama’s goal is for the government to own everything. He has said so on numerous occasions. Anti capitalism is a cornerstone for communism. I don’t know whether he believes his latest ridiculous statements (for example: most republican voters agree with me) and is out of his mind or if he thinks he can convince us of his ideology.

  • Granny

    #21 – the Dems came out of the closet in a big, BIG way at their 2008 convention, where they decorated the outer walls of the convention venue with the RED STAR of the International Comintern. The same red star that every soldier in the USSR, China and North Vietnam wears/wore.

    Yes, I have a pic. I was absolutely dumbfounded to see that red star, so fraught with political meaning for 100 years, appear on the American political scene as the symbol of the Democratic convention.

  • David

    Obama is right. Look at the polls and listen to the American msm. Today Americans believe in socialism, redistribution of wealth and fiscal irresponsibility

    despite record unemployment, record debt, record food stamps, Obama remains favorite to win. The values conservative bloggers (like myself) believe in are clearly in the past. Otherwise Obama would be trailing by at least 20 points

    The reason is simple, america now comprises people from outside cultures that dont believe in conservative values

Bring Obamacare eugenics to a neighborhood near you. This is his program. Why won’t he just say it?

  • mg4us

    Agree #2 Kathteach

    Last Century was when America cam to be a WORLD Power. . out of the ashes of WWI and WWII. . .and led the world in innovation, education and standard of living. . .

    And Obama with his anti-colonial roots resent it. . . and wants to bring America down.

    Dinesh D”Souza does an excellent job researching and documenting Obama’s moral compass in the move 2016:Obama’s America. People need to see it.

    But OBAMA himself shared the root of his disdain and contempt for OUR Country and OUR fellow Americans. . . HIS MOM!!!

    In Dreams From My Father p47, When she was asked by her Indonesian husband to join functions with Americans at the US company he worked for she said

    Obama’s mom resented Jolo’s efforts to improve their lives a la Western Standards. . .She was a third world Junkie. . and so is Obama.

    And Her father (Obama’s grandfather) was a Commie sympathizer and hooked young Barry with Frank Davis – – the commie and porn photographer. . . (and porn pics in Black & White with some saying it included Obama’s mom)

    Perhaps Obama resents the White part of Black & White. . hmmmmmm He clearly resents his White half. . .Like Malcolm X, and the white blood that flows in him. . .that is why OBAM chose to go to Chicago and the South Side and spend 20 years at Jeremiah Wright’s Church of Black Theology!!!

    Obama is glad to see 23 Million Americans out of work, and $)+Million on Food Stamps or in poverty. . . That is why Clint Eastwood says he has to go. . cut him out!

    Chris Christie said it right: Obama want’s the American Century to end. . .While Christie believes we can have OUR CHILDREN grow up in the second American Century.

  • Obuma using Black & White sounds racist to me !

  • mg4us

    #23 David, It is true that we have relaxed our standards in granting citizenship. .and many illegals also don’t value or share the American dream. . .

    Now with Obama’s illegal blanket amnesty & Holder blocking voter ID laws requiring photo ID, expect major voting irregularities come November to try to STEAL the election.

    Need to make those without photo ID dip their finger in ink like Iraqis did. . . so even if illegal and they vote, they can only do so once.

  • Freedom! Keep our FREEDOM!

    He has awoken many of us that remember that fight against communism. I remember the pleads to bring down the Berlin Wall. And I still remember the threats of Russia. Ever visited CHina? Speakers every where they all live in fear. told what to do..ever been tot he real Cuba?
    This Muslim sharia law vile fake who hates America and supports the Brotherhood agenda–now we ALL see him for what and who he is–he is not a BLACK American -he is a racist mulism Indonesia who hates America…and all those who walk with him support his evil ideas-of making us all bow down to him! Him and his fake marriage they are both the most racist sick humans! Baby infanticide supporters..marriage is between a man and a woman..!Go read the SEX RBEL by his mentor FMD!

    You know, Prezzy Big Spender, we liked some of those b&w shows and the ones in color, yes we had color tv in the last century, a lot better than some of the cr#p put on the airwaves today. At least we didn’t have to cover our eyes and ears then or herd the kids out of the room. The shows were entertaining and every family member could watch. We could afford the gas to go on family vacations, too, and support motels, resorts and restaurants. Not now so much as we’re too deeply in debt thanks to Big Govt spending more money than it takes in each year. Future generation won’t be able to enjoy staying in a HoJo and play in the pool like you did when you were a kid. Remember your family vacations that you wrote about so fondly? They were in the last century, too. I built my life in the last century, had a fun filled childhood, raised a family and maintained a career. Those were good years, not so much since you came on the scene.

    “There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. We can vote Republican—and we will.”

    I don’t need a subprime criminal to remind me of how the black-and-white era was so much better in so many ways. For one, a subprimer like Obama would have never ascended to the White House. That’s a good thing. Cities like Detroit and Baltimore and Cleveland were still vibrant back then, not the black sh-tholes that they’ve become. And if a black was driving around in a Cadillac, at least one knew he had to pay for it out his own pocket, not like the welfare queens I see in the stores pulling their food-stamp cards out of their Coach handbags.

  • Obama is too arrogant to realize how revealing his statement is when decomposed into those two concepts. Black and White, the difference between Night and Day, the Dark Side vs. the Light…and so many other contrasts between his shadowy worldview and that of free, self-sufficient people guided by the light of truth….and we know which side he promotes.

    For us, Black, White, Green, Red, Yellow,….makes no difference, we blend them together to create Red, White, and Blue.

  • sandy

    Go ahead Mr. Obama make fun of the 50’s when an intact family was not a rarity. When the husband’s salary was able to purchase a house so the wife could stay home and take care of the children. When you could fill your gas tank for $3.00, have the guy clean your windshield and come away with S&H Greenstamps. We could tell the Mussies to pound sand in those days because our oil came from Texas and Oklahoma.

    This feels more like the 30’s. Joblessness and hopelessness has replaced the American Dream as people’s homes go into foreclosure in record numbers. Our belief in our country and in ourselves has been replaced by the sense that only our Government can provide for our future and only if we live exactly the way they mandate.

    You can laugh at the past Mr. Obama but what does our future hold with you at the helm?

    Speaking on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, Senior Obama adviser David Plouffe had few answers for the age-old question, “Are you better off now than you were four years ago?” On three occasions, he declined to answer the question with a definitive yes or no.

    “It took us a long time to get into that hole, it’s going to take us a long time to get out of it,” Plouffe said after the first time host George Stephanopoulos asked the question.

    (RELATED: Dem Governor Says We’re Not Better Off)

    After the second variation of the question, he said, “We were this close to a Great Depression, and because of the leadership of this president we staved that off. We’re beginning to recover.”

    Stephanopoulos pressed a third time — “You still can’t say ‘yes?’” — and again Plouffe punted: “We’ve clearly improved from the depths of the recession.” He went on to list areas where he said matters had improved: manufacturing, lowering the unemployment rate, and in the auto industry.

    Mission Accomplished: Mitt Romney’s Convention Calls on Us to Reclaim the American Greatness We Remember

    RUSH: I thought it was fantastic. I thought the Romney speech was great. I don’t have any complaints about it. Maybe a couple of nitpicks, but I think “mission accomplished.” Now we see how many people saw it, how it can be built upon, how well the convention built this. I’m gonna go out on a limb. I’m gonna say something. You know, I usually don’t say controversial things, but I’m gonna take a little risk here. When this convention started Monday, even though they took the day off…

    When the delegates gathered, when they first got together at the convention hall (the arena or whatever it was in Tampa), I think it’s fair to say, safe to say, that that was not Mitt Romney’s convention. And by that I mean, the people gathered there were not jazzed to be a part of Mitt Romney. I think the unifying thing at the convention early on was, “We gotta save the country. We have to beat Obama. We’re unified. We have a sense of purpose, here.”[………….]


    So, a RAINBOW at Obama convention, right.

    Luckily for our Dear Leader, his minions and syncopates are totally unaware that his Marxist, Socialist, Communist anti- colonialists BS is sooooo last century, predating that Black & White TV. Of course the same can be said for the UN and Agenda 21 that our very own G.W.Bush signed onto. Just what the hell was HE thinking? Every place that falls for this stuff FAILS, Kalifornia is a prime example with our very own Barry white, Moonbeam Brown. Praise be to the unions, for they will lead us further into failure because we all know that everyone deserves to retire at 50 with a $300K pension.

    Bill Clinton on Obama: ‘A Few Years Ago, This Guy Would Have Been Carrying Our Bags’

    Former President Bill Clinton tried to get former senator Ted Kennedy to endorse Hillary Clinton for president in the 2008 election by describing Barack Obama this way: “A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.”

    This anecdote is revealed in a New Yorker article on the relationship between Bill Clinton and Obama:

    Tim Russert told me that, according to his sources, Bill Clinton, in an effort to secure an endorsement for Hillary from Ted Kennedy, said to Kennedy, “A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.”

    Clinton is giving a keynote address at the Democratic convention this week in Charlotte, North Carolina

    Did you believe it sufficed to be “cool”?
    You once promised command of the land and the seas,
    And for four years you’ve played us for fools!

    Bernanke’s molesting your printing press.
    Geithner (tax cheat) never had ONE good plan.
    And we found you’d betrayed us and lied to us.
    When you claimed we’d “unite” at your hands!

    You still haven’t a clue of ONE GOOD THING to do,
    To make jobs, spend much less, calm our days.
    So you leave your chair, turn on your Media whores,
    And go golfing in a Choom** induced haze.

    You made food stamps a “virtue”, you degraded our fisc*,
    You bowed lower and lower each day.
    To the tyrants and despots whose great goal in life,
    Was to kill the American Way.

    You said, “I’ll do it in three or I’m outta here”;
    Now you say you deserve ‘nother four”.
    Since you spit on our seniors and crippled our land,
    We’d be crazy to let you “help” more!

    * Fisc = the treasury of a nation – see “national debt” rating downgrades.
    ** Choom = both a noun (marijuana) and a verb (“to smoke marijuana”)

    I liked my black and white TV. I It had good shows like I dream of Jeannie, Gilligans Island, the Brady Bunch, and yeah, I was 7 and it was an extra little portable one but who cared?

    Are we so far gone down the road of new – that we don’t realize the new doesn’t work right out of the box but needs 16 applications added to it, a technician on the family payroll, upgrades to perfectly good existing items, which requires us to work more and go into debt at higher rates?

    No thank you President Obama. I’ll take and keep my dvd instead of hdvd as well as 3d-dvd players with supergoggles. It makes my head hurt.

    Sometimes? We just have to say stop to the ever upgraded new shiny president and go back to the ones we know work well right out of the box – no instructions needed.
