I wonder who are in their focus groups?
Need to turn this around. Is he suggesting that those who pay no taxes are not patriotic.
I guess Hussein and Idiot Joe Biden demonstrate their lack of patriotism by not paying additional tax. And Hussein's buddy Warren Buffet owes over a Billion Dollars, so he must be a traitor And what about the tax cheat Timmy "Turbo Tax" Geithner?
So the 48% who pay no federal income tax are unpatriotic? Yep, time to turn them into patriotic tax payers.
Only if you’re “patriotic” to Marxism/socialism.
It’s quasi-entertaining to watch Obama reach in his bag of trick and pull out a new scam almost every week. But time and vigilance has enabled us to see smoke, mirrors, and thin wires he manipulates for his ignorant followers.
This “reverse psychology” trick probably works on those trapped behind the bell curve, but to most he’s a very clumsy three-card monte dealer.
His butt-kissing assistants in the media try their best to cover his gaffes, but like thugs robbing a liquor store...we’ve got video.
People are damn well sick of his antics, spending, vacations, and taxes, and it doesn’t matter if he calls I “’tater salad”, a tax by any othe name is still a tax.
The Obama presidency can be likened to the great “beanie Baby” phenomenon back in the 90’s, all the rage, at first, but now you can hardly give them away.
According to Obama in 2007/08 “George Bush’s deficits” were unpatriotic. Thereby based on that standard Obama quadrupled down on not being patriotic...seems like a winning argument for the libturds.
This idea will do for Obama what it did for King George III.
In which case, I suggest that Mitt Romney already rates as way more patriotic than Obummer or Biden will ever be.
So I guess most of his voters are not patriotic then?
It is not patriotic to waste money.
It is not patriotic to encourage corruption in government.
