"If we would just convert these investments that we're making through out government in education, research and healthcare. If we just turn those into tax cuts, especially for the wealthy, then somehow the economy is going to grow stronger. That's the theory," President Obama said about the right at a campaign event on the tax code in Boca Raton, Florida today.

” Obama On Free Markets: “We Tried It. “
But we didn’t inhale....
I don’t see the presumed Republican nominee going around bashing capitalism....
We tried it? Free markets don’t have a minimum wage. Free markets don’t control when a family can have their kids work on their farm.
I almost want to vote for obama so I can watch him go down in flames. Sometimes evil must reach full fruition before everyone can see what it is.
Key word, “almost”.
Yapping fool alert.
Is it evil to sit out the process? At best Etch-A-Sketch better hope I remain neutral.
Totally the Marxist to the core.
I must be an exception, during the Bush years all 16 of them I had the best employment, the best wages, the best of times.
Before and especially AFTER everything has gone to shit.
Since Obama became ruler I am one step into bankruptcy.
What we tried is huge bailouts, a monstrous increase in debt, Fed money printing and more intervention by government. That's what didn't work. Virtually every government action on the economy inflicts another wound to it.
Is the thread title just a bit misleading?
‘Rich’ vs. poor. Black vs. white. Women vs. men. Greedy doctors vs. patients in need. The ‘1%’ vs. the ‘99%’. etc. etc.
This jerk is one of the most divisive people to ever have been given a soapbox in our society.
Obozo wouldn’t understand an economic principle if it bit him in the butt.
He’s talking gibberish! He hasn’t a clue as to what a free market is.
Yapping fool is right.
In November we are going to see just how stupid American voters may be. Absolutely no one with a pulse can say they didn’t know what they were getting this time.
The election shouldn’t even be close. This President has been an unmitigated disaster.
I can’t stand Mitt Romney, but no conservative should be doing anything but helping to defeat Obama.
Many people do not see evil until the gas is flowing into the chamber. That is why they get on the trains in the first place.
Relax, it’s just the delousing agent.
Capitalism and free markets are not perfect. Like any system they have their flaws. However, it is light years ahead of any other system/scheme. Consider the alternatives that seem to be near and dear to your heart.
Socialism? Yeah, look how well that turned out for the Soviet Union, or any other Country that has tried it. They've all collapsed or, gasp, had to incorporate elements of capitalism to keep their economies afloat.
Fascism? Yeah, look how well that turned out for the people of Germany in the 1930s and 40s. Only cost the world a few million lives to turn that one around.
So hussein, we need to do more than just "try" capitalism. You don't just play at it or dabble in it. You should try something new, try adopting capitalism. I realize that goes against your narcissistic and fascist desire for power and control but as history shows us, those don't work.
Uh... What a lying douch nozzle.
Yes, we tried it. For the first 150 years of our existence as a Country. It took us from a backwater colony to a world superpower faster than ever recorded in human history.
We’ve been busy the last 70 yard dismantling that free market. The dregs of what is left is still powerful enough to give the lie to every Socialist pronouncement that falls from their lips....
Right, cause everybody knows that insurance companies and financial institutions had no rules or regulations in the early part of this century.
I know it true because he was using his folksy common-man voice (the one with the little stammers) while telling us about it.
Folks, in case you haven’t noticed, we have a lying sack of $hit for a president.

Whenever I’m driving with my kids, and Obama starts blabbing, I can’t help saying, “Shut up you idiot!”
My kids have stopped asking, “Who?”
I guess we’ll have to vote for Obama as a bunch of freepers feel that if Romney is the candidate we’re better off with Obama for another four years. That tells me that Rep. Paul Ryan, Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Ron Johnson, among others, are truly insane in their endorsement of Mitt. Maybe we should vote them out of office as well.
Is that what it is ?
Heres me thinking the blue tooth link from his controllers keyboard was malfunctioning! :)
Good point. I’m hoping the Romney bashing will slowly subside. So he’s not the perfect candidate, so, lets not cut our nose to spite our face.
4 more years of this for those who want to stay home or write-in their fantasy candidate this November.
The biggest obstacle to a Constitutionally limited Republic is not a despot promulgating socialism, but the masses who have the power to elect him.
Your being unfair to “sacks of feces” everywhere. They add nutrients to gardens everywhere, and smell better than the foul Marxism coming out of Obama.
says it all. Someone please pull the pin so we can move forward. I’ll volunteer, just point me in the right direction. Damn these morons.
The wealthiest americans most likely paid billions in corporate taxes. He still doesn’t get it.
Romney won't likely do many good things out of Conservative principles, but he probably will do many good things out of the appreciation of efficiency and frugality.
Sorry, I just had to shout.
—...are truly insane in their endorsement of Mitt. —
They are not insane. They are just good republicans.
I think of this as similar to the end of the original “Rollerball”. The coach is still seeing it as a game and trying to “win” while the manager is saying “THIS WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE A GAME!”
That is, those still trying to get their guy to win are missing the point. They are like the people in a disaster movie looting the local electronics store just before a wave obliterates them and the city under 200 feet of water. They are living by past rules of engagement.
But they no longer apply. This is a very different world. Our leaders are desperate. Many of them know just how unworkable our economic mess is. I fear the solutions they are trying to work out. I believe, more than any time in my adult life, that we are on the cusp of Ezekiel 39 and Revelation. There is no human solution to the mess we’re in. We’ve screwed the pooch. Every month more and more people realize it. The only thing left is for the situation to reach critical mass.
The election won’t be between Obama and Romney.
It’ll be between Obama and Strawman.
Your post is to long to quote here, but it’s merits need to be noted, at least by me. Great post!
This attack on business will never create jobs.
Yes, that would be facilitating Obama a 'more flexible' second term.
We must turn the tide against liberalism before America
is swept away by their tsunami. Please do your part.
Support conservative candidates. Vote. Support Free Republic.
Okay, let’s try communism for a while.
Well, dividing and setting people against one another is what Community Organizers do.
You know, there was PLENTY of bitching here when Bush had a Republican congress...and some of it was DESERVED. But look at what happened when Obama had a Democrat congress...they did SO MUCH WORSE and they did it with glee.
We truly have to replace Obama with a Republican AND we have to replace the Senate majority with Republicans. This is not an overnight solution...and we will endure plenty of slings and arrows along the way. And not every vessel of turning the country around will be perfect. In fact, NONE of them will be perfect.
Work with what you have...and always strive for a better world. But seriously, demonizing well-meaning but flawed Republicans isn’t in our nation’s interest. The Obamakooks know their hero is flawed...but they will work for his agenda.
I think we conservatives are smarter...knowing our party is flawed, but working to hold our leaders accountable by pushing the party to the right with our congressional and grass roots leaders.
We have to be cheerful, like Reagan, too. Some of us walk around like we’ve been weaned on a pickle.
0bama will finally be happy if and when he achieves a load of white people working out in rice paddies so that underpriveleged ghetto folks living in efficiency apartments can keep getting their welfare checks.
Finally, a job you are qualified for - shill for a left-wing news outlet.
Yeah - and half of this site wants obama for another term!
incredible! he needs to go!
Part of their overall paradigm that “Capitalism has failed, time to try something else”.
