Skip to comments.60 Minutes of one deluded president (The real Middle-Class knows Obama is a fraud)
Posted on 12/12/2011 9:48:14 AM PST by tobyhill
President Obamas appearance last night on 60 Minutes confirms how severely out of touch he is with political reality. He has become entirely predictable, and his insincerity is unrestrained.
There is the phony familiarity, a strained attempt to bond with working-class voters hes lost. We therefore have an epidemic of missing gs: He tells Steve Kroft: Look, the everybodys at concerned about inequality. Those folks in there, who were listenin to the speech, those are teachers and small-business people, and probably some small-town bankers, who are in there thinking to themselves, How is it that I, were workin so hard, and meanwhile, they know that corporate profits are at a record level, that a lot of folks are doin very well. Whats happened to the bargain? Whats happened to the American deal that says, you know, we are focused on building a strong middle class? I am ready to bet the farm he didnt talk that way at Harvard.

Obama also goes into “black talk” mode when speaking to black audiences. The man is a chameleon.
Is this where I can get one of them there teleprompters?
What’s with The WaPo, a 60-year subsidiary of Pravda?
Obozo sucks infinitely.
He must go....
I was with some of his most ardent cheerleaders last night and we didn’t watch this.....
Tells me how insincere they are about the intensity of their real support, erh, belief in and on him.
Their mythical god has proven no more powerful than Baal and as they watch their pharaoh pretend all is well despite the plagues.
Obama, let my people go.
I didn’t see the interview. Was his entire appearance an attempt to convince us Americans how we should really feel about events?
Uh-oh! This was allowed to be in the Washington comPost.
Not a good sign for owebama.
The article is great... right up until the end when she kick Newt in the teeth and suggests Romney’s our guy. Pffft...
The middle-class are now saying, “we'll take that “bad” over the bad for the past 3 years”.
He can’t even state the bogus Marxist argument in a very convincing way.
“Ya know....the deal or whatever...”
“Obama also goes into black talk mode when speaking to black audiences. The man is a chameleon.”
How do we know that he did not speak like that at Harvard?
Where is any spoken dialog from him during his social promotion time at that pseudo university!
In fact, Newt's sudden jump in the polls, I think, is that he is perceived as being a straight talker and puts it all out there, unlike the rest of the politicians (read - Romney) that are so careful not to offend.
Don't worry, the Post has plenty of time to take shots at our guy; they just hope it is Romney. He won't hit back as hard as Newt.
“The middle-class are now saying, we’ll take that bad over the bad for the past 3 years. “
The problem is, our numbers are dwindling, and we’re already outnumbered.
Between the job crushing of Democrats/unions, and the rush of corporations to offshore, the middle class is becoming an endangered species.
Don't get your hopes up.... National newspaper websites regularly include "blog" sections now. (Check the URL of this article.) This "anti-Obama" article did not and will not appear in the actual paper, nor is it linked to from the lead page of the WaPo website.
Yes many of us are longing for things to be that bad again! Problem for the democrats is that many of us d remember what they said and did and if not it is a quick youtube away....
“The article is great... right up until the end when she kick Newt in the teeth and suggests Romneys our guy. Pffft...”
You are correct. Jennifer is in the tank for Mitt and is just showing her Republican establishment credentials.
If I had watched an hour of this moron, I’d have lost my dinner...
bambi = the amber stain on America’s shorts
Obama has so many accurate nicknames. Here are two nicknames that are equally accurate, but which one will be more likely to stick with the voters?
1.) “Wrong Track” Obama
2.) “Wrong Way” Obama
BTW, I am truly Bipartisan on this difficult selection.
“If I had watched an hour of this moron, Id have lost my dinner...”
I have to keep the remote handy because this a$$hole is on TV so much that you just don’t know when the next incessant babble is coming. I think the guy is finally unhinged and is subliminally trying to torpedo himself. You will know the end is near when he resorts to Ebonics.
I despise the term “The Middle Class”. It is not an American term, not one rooted in American history or American ideals.
It is a term that was born in Europe of socialist academics like Marx and Engles.
America the ideal, as envisioned by the Founders, was a class-less society. The Founders, give the political and economic realities of the founding era did acknowledge in law the existence of three classes, one directly by name, the slaves. And two by inference from that: Freemen and Slave Owners.
America is a land established for freemen — not freeloaders — freemen. Of the terms in play at the time of the founding “Yeoman” is most apt, although I am not aware authors of the national Constitution used it. It is likely that by the 1780’s what was known as a yeoman a few generations ago was by then, in America, just a citizen, a freeman.
But I would suggest that “Yeoman Class” is the most appropriate of terms to use if one has to use “class” terms. Yeomen were men able to sustain themselves and their families and own household. They had a house and a garden, and some trade. They were men of arms, the Yeomanry, the militia. The formal, but temporary military.
The Yeoman class does not include the serfs, the slaves, or the religious clericals of the middle ages such as monks, priests and nuns. All of those are dependent on some feudal lord or church authority for their livelihood. Yeomen, the men, the women and the children of their households are INDEPENDENT.
The “Middle Class” of today’s usage however DOES include the dependent classes of today — the social welfare dependents, the government workers, the career military, even most higher-education academics, for few college positions are truly independent of government funding and large degrees of regulatory support, and nigh-compulsion upon the young to go to college.
To fix America we need a much envigorated Yeoman Class, and a much smaller dependent (serf) class.
It is a serious failure to claim we should want to protect the “Middle Class”, because in the formulation of that “Middle Class” by Obama, Pelosi, Reid and all the liberal chatterers the “Middle Class” includes a large percentage of serfs, of government dependents.
