Stunner. Obama Supporters Cheer as He Talks About Hiking Taxes on Wealthy Americans (Video)

Barack Obama held a last minute press conference today to bash Republicans and gloat about his election victory. At one point in his speech he bragged about how he’s going to be able to raise taxes on wealthy Americans.
His supporters cheered – as if they earned it.

And, of course, not one of his low information supporters understands that Obama’s tax hikes will only pay to run the bloated government for 8 days.

    Cant wait for the liberal fools to figure out that “wealthy Americans” actually means ALL AMERICANS

  • The most tasteless address ever given by a President. He will emerge from now on as a full-fledged committed Socialist. He will do all he can until every American has the same amount of money (none BTW).

  • Multitude

    They’re Deatheaters, to use the Harry Potter term. Proud Germans who cheered when the Jews saw their wealth confiscated for the health of the Fatherland. Few seem to understand today that when the Progressives took power in Germany, the Final Solution was instituted in phases. At first, it was violence and hatred against the rich (Jews), then progressive taxes and confiscations. Relocation to camps happened much later, taking years to develop.

    As Progressive ideology understands, it takes time to progress toward ultimate goals. By no means, however, does this excuse these deatheaters in our society. When you desire the taking of that owned by another, through the force of government, there is little difference whether that taking is of one’s money, property or life.

    If you’re an Obama voter and supporter, you’re guilty of embracing genocide.

    It is appearent why the left hates guns, they don’t want to get sniped because of the real Communist damage they’re about to do.

    The Fascist Liar spoke again; nothing new said.

    He puts working Americans under the tyranny of a socialist-like government that takes its money and redistributes it to the lazy and those, who have decided to be dependent on the welfare state anyway they can.

    The fascist Liar spoke again; nothing new said. America is still in fiscal trouble, because the federal government went beyond the limited amount of enumerated power the Constitution originally delegated to it.

    Our government unconstitutionally redistributes wealth through entitlements, welfare, and overreaching federal regulating agencies. The Fascist Liar doesn’t care; because he promised to fundamentally change America. His fellow fascists cheer him on.

    This guy is shameless! He turned the job over to SlowJoe Biden, then he jump in front of a camera?

    Cheering audience! Women in the background! Reading something somebody wrote for him!

    Makes you think all he knows how to do is CAMPAIGN!

    If I thought it was possible, I would think he was running for office!

    I listened to an entire seven seconds of the tyrant’s voice and almost vomited. I made it all the way to “last year we started to reduce the deficit by a trillion dollars”.

    I want no deal that raises any taxes and has no cuts. In fact, I want no deal at all that raises taxes. Period.

  • we will see if they cheer when he confiscates their wealth and property. it all belongs to the state(politicans)anyway.

  • Frankly, I can’t wait for that moment when O voters realize what they have done. all that snugness, and shaking of their heads at us will cease. When they find out, I hope they are reminded of their mistakes over and over again!

  • saveus

    O voters are clueless or socialists so they are happy whatever he does and could care less about the consequences for the once great USA.

    I was just arguing about this with an acquaintance over the holidays.
    It was a calm enough conversation until he started in with the “fair share” stuff.

    I do not know how in the world highly-educated people can fall for that idiotic notion.

    Even a flat tax would still be a progressive tax, because the higher earner would still pay more in taxes. How can anybody consider it fair to charge the higher earner a higher percent as well??

    Never mind that the income tax didn’t come around until World War I, so we survived as a nation just fine without one for 140 years.

    We shouldn’t have a flat tax, a fair tax, or the over-progressive tax system we have now.
    The income tax should not exist. It was unconstitutional when the colonies ratified the Constitution, and when the amendment was passed, it was intended to raise funds for the war.

    Also, there is nothing in the language of the amendment that allows the government to withhold the tax dollars throughout the year, rather than let us keep our own dollars all year and pay at the end.

    You think that’s applause? You should see some video of Munich rallies, where the German people applauded Hitler when he promised to bash the Jews. Now that’s an ovation!

    Not one of those “low information supporters” understands that every dollar they squeeze out of the “rich” is eventually going to come out of the pockets of regular Americans. I guess Ron White was right when he said “you can’t fix stupid” …..

    Another uplifting speech by the dictator dividing Americans. Let’s emphasize envy and demonize success. What is wrong with Obamaites–don’t they see where this is going. Yeah today it’s them–but tomorrow it is going to be you. You rich Hollywood-type leftists may think you can control this, but you will find out you can’t–and then it will be too late.

  • Joe Blow

    A long time ago when I was young, the Biblical teaching was do not covet. Not just your neighbor’s wife but the things he has. How the people have become so greedy that they think everything anyone else has should be theirs. It is pure jealousy and they should be ashamed of themselves but that won’t happen in this day and age.

  • lincoln’s widow

    Bite me lowlife. Any one of you numbnuts who expect the middle class and poor to pick up the tab while the rich get their loopholes and bank their $$ in the Caymans are *ahem* misguided. And if you can’t reply without nasty curse words and insults then SYFM lowlife

    Just like a bunch of stupid, trained seals.

  • left coast conservative

    OT to a certain extent. I’ve been reading about the goals of progressivism. They Cleary state that private property ownership us decisive and does not promote an ordered and civil society. We need to understand their goals and strive to present an alternative view based on eternal truths.

  • Mad Hatter


    If you want to see the Progressives goals and learn them, just study about the Communist Goals of 1963, they’re identical.

    Obama can crow all he wants & blame all he likes, but at the end of it all its his economy now. If deficit spending fails to ignite the economy or if the tax hikes actually hurt more than helps, Obama now has to answer.

    Of course, in theory anyway, he should have had to answer for it in the 2012 election. The case could be made that the economy was improving (lower unemployment rates, stock market gains, etc). If all of this now turns south, his 2nd term will collapse very quickly.

  • stopthemorons

    America’s mo ron surrounded by idi ots. Calling those id iots Americans is an insult to real Americans. Pawns in the Oback Orama plan to make America just like Europe or better yet his home, Kenya. There is no way in he ll that Oback can be a real American. No way.

    A few “help wanted” signs would have had them running for their lives…

    The “Munich rallies” comment reminds me of the teenage girls that were seen crying their eyes out for Obama at some of his campaign rallies.

    It was absolutely pathetic…

  • VA Conservative


    “If all of this now turns south, his 2nd term will collapse very quickly.”

    Sadly, even if it does go south, he will continue to blame Bush (or anyone other than himself and his party’s policies). And, as ignorant as his followers showed themselves to be in the last election, they will believe every word of it and continue to support him.

  • Elizabeth

    What did you expect from a bunch of Obama MOOCHERS?
    He knows these people are morons, but he needed millions of those useful idiots in order to get re-elected. Massive voter fraud helped too.

    There are no words accurate enough to express the inredudity at those “people” whoopin’ it up for Obama.

    That cheering and Obama’s entrance and acknowledgement of them was reminiscent of singer about to begin his set in front of his adoring fans. Unworthy of a sitting POTUS, and certainly unworthy of a people who presumably want to remain free.

    Chicago Je$u$, indeed!!

    And when the rich are unable to start and/or expand business that HIRE people, more people are without work and the economy gets even worse, will these same people be cheering then? Stupid, stupid, stupid. When did it become a bad thing to be successful? Thats what the Dems and Obama stand for…failure.

  • Bill

    I wonder if the chicago thugs held guns to their heads on this one

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    My take – go ahead and do it, and let the chips fall where they may. Shelve the opposition mindset and embrace the hikes with gusto, making sure to structure every single tax increase bill and proposal so that the blue states get hit the hardest.

    The blue states voted for him enthusiastically, so let them feel the full effect of what Obie wants to implement, from the top all the way down to the bottom.

    The electric light, the automobile, the airplane, the telephone, the computer were invented because brilliant Americans had ideas that made our lives better. Now these same people would be punished for daring to invent anything new. McCain if you want to be angry and sad — that’s a damn good reason.

    You know what’s funny? I live in a very liberal city and EVERY liberal rich person I have ever known, INHERITED their wealth. And they were all liberals. Liberals who sponged off their dead rich capitalist pig daddy’s inheritance while they marched for Marxism, communism and every other kind of leftard ism.

    The conservatives I have known who had money EARNED it.

    Liberal Democrat speak for “wealthy”:

    Anyone who isn’t on public assistance is wealthy.

    Anyone who isn’t on the public sector payroll is wealthy.

    Anyone who doesn’t think others should fund non-productive lifestyles is wealthy.

    Anyone who is against promoting non-productive/dependent lifestyles is wealthy.

    Anyone who is against public assistance dependent mothers having more children, whey they can’t support those they already have, is wealthy.

    Anyone who doesn’t think that someone, or something, owes you “something for nothing” is wealthy.

    Anyone who doesn’t borrow their way into hopeless debt is wealthy

    Anyone who understands that you can not “borrow your way out of debt” is wealthy.

    Anyone who disagrees with a liberal Democrat is wealthy.

    Disgusting watching these clapping, trained commie seals show their approval of what amounts to literally stealing from the wealthy. They see their ‘dear leader’ as Robin Hood. Wait until they discover that the only difference between Obama and Hitler is that Hitler had a mustache.

    These people really should be given a ‘choice card’ to mark for future reference so that the gov’t knows their preference (starvation, gas chamber, firing squad, trampling by fellow Obamabots) when the time comes for them to be ‘dispatched’ for the greater good and their assets redistributed

  • Amash

    They cheer because Jugear’s free money for half of the country will continue. These morons have no concern about debt. Most of them have lived off free money their entire lives. This joke of a leader and man helps them continue their way of life. No work; just take from those of us who do work. Jugears will go down as the biggest spender, most narcissistic, little man who has ever held the office. Not one thing about the fraud is presidential.

  • the liberal has done to the rich in the united states what the nazi did to the jew in germany.

  • Kissmygrits

    Will they still cheer when the organizer/campaigner in chief comes for their meager salaries? The govt won’t be able to sustain or increase the levels of spending/giving to mooches for long before they will come back for more increases. We’re all in the same boat. It’s all of us against the govt. Bet those folks in the background are card carriers.

  • johnt

    Look at the idiots laughing behind Obama, oh Fun! We’re about to get screwed, deficits will go astronomical, taxes will go up, For Now on “the rich”, Obama holds them & just about everybody else in contempt,[though the dumb ass ought not to] and the idiots laugh.
    I wonder how many will be laughing only a year from now?

  • Peggy R

    These people must be government employees, the only “middle class” in the DC area.
