I agree. Obama is a BIG, BIG, BIG hater. He hates a LOT! He hates freedom. And he hates white people.
Obama the Great Evil Genii in the Kenyon Muslim Bottle thinks our corporate job heroes really "didn't build that." Gawd, what a terrible president. He thinks that govt has something to do with public education of workers, that govt has something to do with protection of companies to make consumer goods, that govt provides legal structure that defines the lay of the land, that govt....
Oh, forget it. He's the worst president we've ever had. Really. He really is.

You can read the entire 'context' of his off teleprompter rant for more govt here: Web Link
Your sarcastic (or otherwise) defense of Obama's words sound like desperate attempts at apologies for his ad-libbing a babbling dismissal of individual effort. We all knew his intent is to further increase the size of govt; this speech serves to reiterate his indoctrination of the masses that the collective is better than the individual. It's not an original idea, it's an emulation of communist societies that have failed in the past.

I actually think that Obama is the greatest thing to ever happen to the conservative movement and to states rights and hope he is re elected. He is just killing the democratic party and if he wins in November he will have given the opposing party the majority in both the house and the senate. Quite an achievement for a hope and change er. It is going to be interesting to watch as the economy completely crashes under his watch. Already a disaster as a president, bigger bust than Jimmy, and now will top herbert hoover. Lastly, the US is completely fractured and you will begin to see more and more that states are going to break away from the federal government and do their own thing as they have already started. Not a bad move the the liar in chief or campaigner in chief. This is a good thing for the US and will wake us up to economic terrorism.

If you think about it, Bush wasn't that bad. He rebuilt New York after the terrorists bombed the Trade Center under Clinton's 'watch'. Guess Wild Willy Clinton had something else on his mind. The liberal lamestream press never told us that Monica Lewinski was in the Oval Office when the terrorists struck. That never would have happened under Bush.
Bush kicked butt in Iraq, and if he'd have been given more time, the economy would have rebounded nicely. In fact, it didn't start to plummet until King Hussien Obama slithered into office. It's shameful what the democrat party has done to this country. That's why you can count on this informed voter casting his vote for Mittens Romney. We need to extend the Bush legacy.

Nice try Jimmyfol, but trying to stick Romney with Bush won't fly...I know you're talking to the uninformed and gullible.
And don't forget Speak Ms Pelosi was yanking Bush by the tale his last two years. She was running the show with her untouchable DEM majority Bush's last two year, AND OBAMA's first two years....when they just did Health care.
By comparison, Romney was called in to rescue 2002 Winter Olympics that were not coming together. Romney dealt with the crisis (without pay), after 3 years of fixing that mess, Sept 11, 2001 hit NY. Many thought the Olympics here should be cancelled. But,Romney again dealt with the security crisis. Dec 1, 2001, the torch was lit, and FEB 2002, the Winter Olympics were successful, and without incident.
Then while the economy was worsening, rather than dealing with jobs, Obama charged on with his health care restructuring, and 5 months in office flew off to the 2016 Olympic committee to try to sell them on holding 2016 event in CHICAGO !! NO president of any country gets directly involved with that. Obama failed at selling the committee on the US. That bid for 2016 went to Rio de Janeiro instead.

Wonderful. But how to tell extent of Mitten's involvement in what has been described by many as the most corrupt Olympics ever held? To what extent was he privey to or involved in large corporations and land owners in Utah paying off IOC members to get events in THESE locations instead of others? What hand did Romney have in getting govt donations to the tune of tens of millions of tax payer dollars? And how do you know WHAT Romney made when he doesn't show anyone his tax returns?
It's all a roose, as I've been saying. We can answer all of the above questions by just taking Mitten's word for it. Because he's an honorable man. He wears happy magic underwear that make him always tell the truth. I met him at a Salt Lake corndog festival, he spilled mustard on his Ralph Lauren polo shirt and he didn't even bat an eye. Now, that's class.

Jimfol, (how do you come up with these names). As they say, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. well, in your case, a teensie weensie bit of knowledge, must be deadly.
Since Romney was born and raised in Michigan, where his Dad was RE-elected Gov. for THREE terms, Romney never lived in Utah, and had no part in anything Olympics. Your petty partisan fantasies are very misplaced. It was/is a large US and international committee, that searched for a turn-around guy. Romney was asked and didn't accept for a month or so. (It would be good for you to watch the hour-long Mitt & Ann interview at the Olympics with Piers Morgan).
He had to start from scratch convincing huge sponsors to come on board. How is it Obama picked his companies to give the millions and Billions to...right, his Obama donor list ! !Companies like FISKAR who took OUR PUBLIC TAX dollars to EUROPE to create jobs.. And Obama from the most politically corrupt Cook County Illinois,as a political community organizer as his only job skill. and we're suppose to believe he did a decent job, and the suckers of America said OK 'we'll believe you' although nobody has ever seen Occidental Colleege records..It was all a roose,no transcripts for any schools, and we're suppose to believe, "by just taking his word". YOU and zero media ask ANY questions, zero vetting otr checking four years ago. Was that result SO bad, suddenly dummies want to double down, and dig twice as deep in this successful person. Although Romney was taught to be humble and private, his father held public positions, and Romney to a degree, as well. Founded a visible company, was recruited to rescue International olympics, and Gov...not exactly under the radar.
But, you what ifs and why nots are a great diversion from the fact that even more people are without jobs than 3 1/2 years ago...no jobs, can't borrow on homes that won't appraise, zero interest on saving....pretty much bleak in every direction. Sorry you never want to discuss government or economy.....just throw out irrelevant, that didn't matter 4 yearsd ago. Do they pay you to dish out crap...
that's like ....If you can't win with logic, just dazzle them with B..S.... 'cuz that's all your'e good for, whatever name you give yourself.

Jimfol, are you part of Obama's "social media" team that's sits in the White House buzzing on all the blogs ??? and the first (and irrelevant) thing you learn is, even if you have nothing but dribbles to offer, just throw in Bush every other sentence for dummies to see..duh, bush, bad. When you have something to offer to help get jobs and help the economy, then offer. Otherwise, just go talk to the mirror.
I know both Obama's recently made trips to Oakland to fire up the base, who did lots of mobile device campaigning last time.

Here's a good rule of thumb: if a political campaign's main response to its critics is to call them jokes and attack their character without actually refuting the substance of the criticism ... then you know the political campaign is in a bad spot.
That's exactly the situation the Romney campaign finds itself in in the wake of yesterday's Tax Policy Center study which showed that Romney's tax plan would force middle-class taxpayers to foot the bill for Romney's proposed tax breaks for the wealthy. Instead of critiquing the study on the merits, the campaign is calling it a "joke" and claiming that it's authors are stooges for the Obama campaign, never mind the fact that one of the study's authors worked for the first President Bush or the fact the head of the Tax Policy Center worked for the second President Bush. And certainly, please don't remind the Romney campaign that they were approvingly citing the Tax Policy Center as a non-partisan institute (which it is) as recently as November.
