"The point is, though, that -- and it’s not just charity, it’s not just that I want to help the middle class and working people who are trying to get in the middle class -- it’s that when we actually make sure that everybody’s got a shot – when young people can all go to college, when everybody’s got decent health care, when everybody’s got a little more money at the end of the month – then guess what? Everybody starts spending that money, they decide maybe I can afford a new car, maybe I can afford a computer for my child. They can buy the products and services that businesses are selling and everybody is better off. All boats rise. That’s what happened in the 1990s, that’s what we need to restore. And that’s what I’m gonna do as president of the United States of America.
"John McCain and Sarah Palin they call this socialistic," Obama continued. "You know I don’t know when, when they decided they wanted to make a virtue out of selfishness."
This guy is so out of touch with reality it isn't even funny. His entire campaign is based on attempting to shame or silence dissenters. Someone please tell me how wanting to keep money that you have earned is considered SELFISHNESS. What a bunch of bullshit. Here's a man who has plenty of money and yet his brother lives in a hut and his Aunt (of which he writes about in his book Dreams From My Father) lives in a slum somewhere in Boston. This should sound the alarm for anyone who supports this man because what he is saying WITH HIS ACTIONS rather than his WORDS, is that he wants the government (through taxes from you and me) to bail these people out rather than dipping into his own wealth to care for his OWN FAMILY. What a hypocrite.
But what's really scary to me is that I am beginning to understand that many Obama supporters love the idea of socialism--of someone else stepping in and providing for them. I watched a video clip of a woman at an Obama rally and she said she was just so thrilled about the prospect of having Obama as our next president because finally someone would buy her gas for her and pay her mortgage. Um...WTF? Is this what goes on at Obama gatherings? Does he tell them that he's going to pay all their bills? This type of stupidity is staggering to me. Does Obama have a secret money tree that none of us know about? Or are WE that money tree?
