Obama’s vision for the next 4 years: tax and spend tax and spend

As a conservatarian and I find this chunk of video from Barack Obama’s campaign in Ohio yesterday simply chilling. You’ll just have to decide for yourself.

Via The Right Scoop, Obama makes the Federal Government sound more like Santa Claus instead of super Nanny, either way he is using the left’s young and old alike greed for free to bankrupt your children… useful fools.


Interesting and stomach churning at the same time. Maybe even more interesting by Utah Mayor and Congressional candidate, Mia Love’s appearance yesterday on Sean Hannity show . While we cut the video another Hat Tip goes to Right Scoop: we must make the moral case about the future we are leaving our children.


She’s right you know which is why the Mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, must go to Congress

    “Santa Claus”??? More like “Bad Santa”, except the ?bamateur would certainly not be handing out lumps of coal.? Too polluting you know!? 😉
    Tax and spend, and spend and tax is all he, and the Dems, know how to do.?? They are the very definition of insanity, lending truth to Savage’s proclamation that liberalism is a mental disease.

    Makes me want to knit a hair-shirt and go sit in a tree.

    I’m just wondering if PBO went off-prompter and let his mask fall momentarily OR is he so sure of his supporters being on-board his thinly veiled socialist agenda now that he feels more brazen.? Seems he is doling out the “candy” to the sheeple and they are just gobbling it up.? Expanded food stamps, gutting of? welfare work rules, “free” health care, free cell phones, cash-for-clunkers, etc.? So many Americans have been dumbed down for so many years it is difficult to wake them up to the threat to our personal liberty that PBO’s agenda represents.? It seems too many Americans think there really is a free lunch……they don’t seem to recognize (? or care) that they are eating from the plates of future generations while at the same time ensuring their Road to Serfdom (hat tip to F.A. Hayek) will be inevitable.

    Saw clip from Star Parker on Fox this morning.? Compared income of single mother on government programs (welfare check, SNAP, daycare, Medicaid…) vs single mother who works and whose expenses for health care, childcare, food,… are on her.? Shows the mom on government programs has more “income” than working mom.? The government incentive to NOT work is very evident (of course, as long as? you have no personal pride, sense of individual accomplishment and responsibility ).? Maybe Jim could get Star on the show…that would be great.? She has lived the welfare lifestyle and pulled herself out of it.? She knows all the ins and outs of the game and what harm it does …especially for African American families.

    Again: At what point will the taxpayers, the wagon pullers, be unable to pay anymore taxes?
    The takers, the Democrats, have an insatiable appetite for our money.
    Of course Obama has only tax and spend to offer. He has nothing else. His only record is tax and spend. What else is there for him to expand on?

    In the spirit of “fairness”? Google “Obama tax cuts” and see. Also try http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/taxes
    Probably none of this matters.

      Not much.? Rather than long term fixes, the WH uses short term band aids with pretty names while continuing to spend wildly.? Some things have some short term goodness, like unemployment insurance, but would otherwise be unnecessary if our president wasn’t such an economic buffoon.
      As for his “tax cuts”, they are trivial in the face of his tax increases.

      My understanding is that those “Obama tax cuts” are nothing more than extending by one year Bush’s tax cuts and tying that to extending entitlements.

    As I said, none of this matters to this audience.

    • stinkfoot on July 19, 2012 at 5:59 am

      Tax and spend; divide and conquer… propagandize people to go at each other as evidenced by cheap ad hominem attacks such as this.

    • JBS on July 19, 2012 at 6:53 am

      Tax cuts, tax credits, college incentives, and proposed legislation, i.e. Jobs Act.
      The majority of these measures are predicated on a worker still having a viable job, an employer able to stay in business and an economy that is not in de-fib.
      Wrong, sammy22, we care deeply about our country . While the WH propaganda machine may their version of fact (yes, they did propose the American Jobs Act to Congress in September of 2011, a $447 billion Stimulus Package; union pork in there for sure!), the reality is that the current Democrat approach of tax and spend is a loser for the US.

      If they worked, they’d matter.
