CNSNews.com) - In a speech delivered at Osawatomie High School in Osawatomie, Kansas, on Tuesday, President Barack Obama argued that while a limited government that preserves free markets "speaks to our rugged individualism" as Americans, such a system "doesn't work" and "has never worked" and that Americans must look to a more activist government that taxes more, spends more and regulates more if they want to preserve the middle class.

Remember, Citizen... nobama hates you, hates your family, hates your success, hates Free America, hates Americans, hates the Constitution and hates the Bill of Rights. nobama is a hate crime foisted upon America. nobama is the Destroyer . Everything nobama does is intentional. God help us all.

You've just stated an absolute truth. That's why, even if the pubbie nominee is Mittens (God forbid!) I'll contribute money to his campaign and vote for him.

By the time we, as a nation (as opposed to us here on FR...), begin to think “this is too bizarre to be happening”, it will be far too late. What seems to be happening, however, is that spectacularly bizarre things keep happening, and we just don’t seem, as a nation, to give a damn. Far more important, it would seem are skank-filled “reality” shows (unlike many others, I actually believe such shows DO capture the reality lived by a great number of people...) and televised sports (which I, too, confess to enjoying perhaps a bit too much...). Unfortunately, we have passed the point of no return, and the transformation/disfiguration of our culture will continue apace.

"speaks to our rugged individualism"

a.k.a., for him, kryptonite.

It makes perfect sense that he has such contempt for the free market. He's never had a real job in his life, never run a business; always, he's lived off the goodies his charm bought for him.

He’s really doubling down, isn’t it? And less afraid to espouse his communist roots and ideals.

His style has been to obscure his socialist bent, while attacking capitalism at every turn in his actions. Now that Obama sees we don't like what he has done, he's trying to sell us on what he really wants for this country.

He sees the polls, this is born of desperation. Yes, he is revealing himself to us, and I think it's a big mistake.
