Obama: Government Spending Made Our Country Great

President Obama laid out his election strategy last night in a speech at the Portland Museum of Art in Maine. That being the argument that it wasn’t the American people and their hard work, their creativity, their bravery that made America great. No, it was the government.

They’ve got one message and that is, we’re going to make sure that we cut people’s taxes even more – so that by every objective measure our deficit is worse and we will slash government investments that have made this country great, not because it’s going to balance the budget, but because it’s driven by our ideological vision about how government should be. That’s their agenda, pure and simple.

…We won’t win the race for new jobs and new businesses and middle-class security if we cling to this same old, worn-out, tired `you’re on your own’ economics that the other side is peddling. It was tried in the decades before the Great Depression. It didn’t work then. It was tried in the last decade. It didn’t work. You know, the idea you would keep on doing the same thing over and over again, even though it’s been proven not to work. That’s a sign of madness.”

Yup, the “you’re on your own” philosophy didn’t help to create a world superpower or one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world. Nope…NOW we’re a great country because Obama came in and instituted every kind of socialism possible.

    When Obama says, ”they,” he is beginning his latest straw man fallacy.
    There are no ”they” who wish to create a ”you’re on your own,” style of economics.
    Obama is a master of the straw man.
    Anyone who buys that fallacy from him is an idiot, useful or not.

    And you wonder how this clown has increased our national debt at a historic pace?? Further confirmation of 0-bama’s failure as President.

    You just can’t fix stupid.

    Is it little wonder that Obama spends like he does? I mean his wife wore $500 shoes to a food pantry, remember? He evidently learned well how to spend money, watching his other half.

    I think anyone has the ability to spend money recklessly and incompetently, especially when it’s not theirs to begin with.

    Obama’s like a teenager that got his first credit card.

    There is a racial sterotype that describes just how Obama acts with the spending of our tax dollars. This clown is done more to destroy racial unity than any President in American history. It is a shame his name is on the list with men like Lincoln.

    I think it’s quite amusing every time he attempts to use a quote and pass it off as his own. He typically ends up screwing it up, as he did here;

    You know, the idea you would keep on doing the same thing over and over again, even though it’s been proven not to work. That’s a sign of madness.”

    Obama the plagiarist. And a bad one at that. Kinda makes you wonder how he ever made it through college.

    @johngalt: Affirmative action, hence the reason his college transcripts are under lock and key.

    You didn’t finish the quote. It goes:

    You can’t fix stupid, but you can vote him out of office.

    For once, he isn’t blaming George Bush.

    Do nothing Obama and his ‘talking points’….yawn….

    The head and two underlings of the GSA has been fired for profligate spending on herself and her friends inside the agency.
    Over $800,000 taxpayer cash was wasted by her on conferences, catering and ”swag.”
    Obama knew about this before he left for Korea.
    Diversions galore.
