Obama's 17-minute, 2,500-word response to woman's claim of being 'over-taxed'
http://voices.washingtonpost.com/44/2010/04/obamas-17-minute-2500-word-res.html ^

Toward the end of a question-and-answer session with workers at an advanced battery technology manufacturer, a woman named Doris stood to ask the president whether it was a "wise decision to add more taxes to us with the health care" package.

"We are over-taxed as it is," Doris said bluntly.

Obama started out feisty. "Well, let's talk about that, because this is an area where there's been just a whole lot of misinformation, and I'm going to have to work hard over the next several months to clean up a lot of the misapprehensions that people have," the president said.

He then spent the next 17 minutes and 12 seconds lulling the crowd into a daze.

There only one response to Obastard needed:

Redistribution is Theft III

The people indeed are all overtaxed, burdened, no generation has ever had to pay the amount of taxes this one will have to pay, and the next generation will have even MORE to pay. This is not MISINFORMATION, the one who is MISINFORMED, is the kid who grew up in Indonesia who lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in Washington DC.

When you don’t have the facts pile on the words.

Doris is my hero of the day - she put a short, straightforward question to Obama, and it put him on the defensive...so much so that even the Washington Post noticed...

Unfortunately for him, his wordiness does nothing more than indicate that he thinks we aren't overtaxed.

Having worked for attorneys, I find I can’t say or write anything in 25 words or less. Obama, who apparently as a law school degree, was trained to prattle on and on. His massive ego only adds to it.

Love your post. Graphic says it all. The fallacy of redistriubtion is that if all of the country’s wealth was spread equally, it would have the unintended consequence of lowering our standard of living BECAUSE it would take capital away from those who are able to best innovate and bring to market new goods and services. Redistribution only gives money to people who don’t deserve it or know how to effectively leverage it to good use.

The only question to Obama that requires a 17 minute answer is “Why do you suck so much as POTUS?”

I don’t mind at all. Of course, if you’d like it on some buttons, t-shirts, or on a bumper-sticker, I’ve got all of that set up over at Cafepress, here: http://www.cafepress.com/Oceander

King Butt
[sing to the tune of Steve Martin`s original]

Born in Indonesia,
Raised in Kenya too,
King Butt!

King Butt King Butt
Now when he was a young commie,
He always loved to see
People out of work, saying “please tax me!”

(King Butt) How’d you get so junky?
(Junky Butt) Did you do the monkey? [really do]
Born in Indonesia
Moved to Babble Baloneyia (king Butt).

(King Butt) Now, if I’d known
they’d line up just to see him,
I’d trade in all my money
And bought him a mausoleum . (king Butt)

Buried with a donkey [Junky Butt]
He’s my favorite Ass!
Press gives him a pass.
Born in Indonesia
Moved to Babble Baloneyia (king Butt).

Dancin’ by Denial, (Chicago Butt)
The ladies love his guile, (Boss Butt)
Mockin’ for a smile (Mockin’ Butt)
He talks a crock of bile.

He gave his life for communism.
Molding idiot!
He’s a gyp! For Sure! Listen!
He`s sellin’ us
Down the river!
While he sails in his yacht fishin`!

Now, when He dies,
now please, he is a nut,
don’t give him no fancy funeral,
Just ignore ole king Butt. (King Butt)

He coulda won a Grammy,
For all of his Spammies
Buried in his Jammies,
Born in Indonesia, moved to Babble Baloneyia,
He was born in Indonesia,, got a condo made of Red Brick-a,
King Butt!

And after all of that talk, those factory workers listening to that are still over-taxed, and now they’re grumpy.

Use this too!

Here is an interesting video taken January 2, 2009. One only needs to listen to the first 20 seconds to hear Michelle's interesting statement about “home country”. What do you think Michelle meant by her statement?

I wonder if this is the start of rolling the steel balls?...trying to explain who stole the strawberries.

...our president Zer0 is stressed, don't you know....

...destroying 200+ years of American culture and society is hard...and darn, some the "folks" strenuously object and say so publicly.....

...and what's worse, there are video records of the "promises" which the "folks" use to prove what a craven lie-r he is.....

....yes "folks" the pressure is building to the day when Zer0 is taken out of the White House, slobbering and in a strait jacket ....
