Obama: "We Have Not Massively Expanded The Welfare State"
RCP Video ^ | 2-3-2014

Posted on 02/04/2014 5:31:42 AM PST by Sir Napsalot

PRESIDENT OBAMA: ......because I think what used to be considered sensible we now somehow label as liberal. Think about it: Social Security, Medicare.

O'REILLY: But you are pay into that. It's the freebies that are are the problem.

OBAMA: What freebies are we talking about? Welfare actually is worth less now than it was 20, 30 years ago. It's worth less than it was under Ronald Reagan.

O'REILLY: Take a look at the disability explosion. I mean, it's insane. The work place isn't any more dangerous now than it was 20 years ago. It's through the roof.

OBAMA: Bill, the point is we have not massively expanded the welfare state, that's just not true.

TOPICS: Government
KEYWORDS:
I assumed nobody really watched the O'Reilly vs Obama interview nor cared enough to read the whole transcript.

All these tidbits coming out is "very interesting". Showing Obama as the complete idiot that he is is a very kind saying. And now Obama claims O'Reilly treated him unfairly.

It's unfair to ask Obama a question he has to answer with a lie. < /s>

It’s desperation. When a narcissist is cornered, he becomes VERY dangerous. Obama is bound to slip up soon. It’s not if but when.

Another 'freebie' today.

Obama: "In A Lot of Ways Richard Nixon Was More Liberal Than I Was"

OBAMA:

You know, the truth of the matter is when you look at some of my policies, in a lot of ways Richard Nixon was more liberal than I was. [He] started the E.P.A, you know, started a whole lot of the regulatory state that has helped make our air and water clean.

...... F.D.R. Johnson. But I tend not to think about these things in terms as liberal and Democrat or liberal and conservative because at any given time the question is what does the country need right now?

The undocumented, proven-LIAR, remains
incapable of either following the Constitution
OR telling the truth.

The EXEMPT Congress could not care.

Well, as a Vietnam vet who used the GI Bill to get a bachelors degree, my ears perked up when Obama compared the GI Bill to welfare. That really pissed me off as I’m sure it did most other vets who watched. Those of us who served consider the GI Bill to be an earned benefit. But, I suppose liberals consider the same of welfare - just occurred to me....

He lies so much, even he doesn’t know what the truth is. Those within his bubble are feeding him the lies, he is making his own, and the lamestream media is repeating them. The low information voters buy into the lies. The educated know the emperor has no clothes.

My tolerance level for BOR is exactly ZILCH, so I do not watch his show.

That said, it would be hard to determine just who is more full of crap when he is on with The Stain.

Obama answers what the country needs right now with more ways to a global communism path.

I am in total agreement with you.

It’s much easier on my nerves to have other Freepers doing the dirty work of watching these POS’S and then telling us what they saw and heard…….

Don’t you have to pay back student loans? How is that ‘welfare’?

Obama’s going to wave his hands and cancel all?

What a narcissist.

He doesn’t brook any kind of dissent and if you don’t think the way he does, then you are the problem.

Ubama has established the pattern that every word out of his mouth is a lie, including "and" and "the."

Why would this interview be any different?

Yes, and the fact that the executive director of the IRS visited the White House over 150 times in my first term had nothing to do with using that agency against conservative political opponents.

obama in yet another bald-faced lie. There are no numbers, nothing to back up his claim. There is a literal mountain of evidence (in the form of cash being dumped into welfare type programs) that proves he and his cohorts in crime have done exactly that - and almost certainly intentionally.

obama you lying POS.

What a benevolent dictator he is. How about looking at those pricinples set in stone in the constitution. Find me where it says the government, er the taxpayers, need to provide anything to anyone?

“Don’t you have to pay back student loans? How is that ‘welfare’? Obama’s going to wave his hands and cancel all?”

Agree. It’s not welfare. However, to your “Obama’s going to wave his hands” comment; I would not be surprised to see Obama and Reid to attempt to do exactly that. Actually, Obama may even try to waive student loan debt by executive order, especially if the Dem prospect should look dire for the 2016 elections. Way back in the day (early 70’s) it was still possible, along with a little help i.e. GI Bill, to pay as you went by working if one attended a school with the word State in its name. But, even public schools are more expensive now than back then. By using the GI Bill along with working I was able to complete college debt free. So, I’m interested in feedback from those who used student loans to get their degrees. Would you be in favor of student loan debt being forgiven? Just curious...

Spot on Rummyfan, The IRS is being used as a weapon to attack POLITICAL foes. The founding fathers were adamant about not allowing this lawlessness to occur.

That statement requires a bit of Clintonesque parsing.

Obama has just used executive privilege to expand and grow existing programs like Obamaphones (Bush), SSI and Food Stamps (Great Society) for his own ends.

Technically he has not created any “new” entitlements. He’s just screwed with the eligibility checks so that everybody qualifies.

Which we all need to keep in mind the next time a George W. Bush comes along pitching a prescription drug benefit or somesuch.
