full title...Obama says Romney is 'outdated' and Republicans have no new ideas (as he cosies up to voters in the bar)
Mitt Romney and the Republican Party are offering outdated ideas that are ill-suited for the United States both today and in the future, President Barack Obama said in his latest attack on Saturday.
He criticised the GOP as being incapable of coming up with the answers to move the country forward and added that the Republicans haven't offered 'a single new idea, just retreads'.
The Democratic incumbent was campaigning in Iowa on Saturday, making a direct appeal for residents to register and vote for him, while Mitt Romney battled it out for fellow swing state Ohio.
Mr Obama delighted revellers as he paid a trip to a local bar in Sioux City alongside Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.

“Outdated”...as in from a time where only *ten* percent,rather than *fifty* percent,of American households got food stamps.
So, only Barack understands the issues and needs of our country in the 21st century???? Romney only offers re-tread ideas?????
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. This is the same BS script that Barry used back in 2008 when we didn’t know that he was a lying bass turd.
re: “Obama says Romney is ‘outdated’ and Republicans have no new ideas”
Yeah, some of those old ideas like, THE CONSTITUTION, THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE!!
“In an interview with Matt Lauer in the beginning of his presidency, Barack Obama said he should only serve one term if he could not fix the economy.”
For once in his life, Barry was absolutely right.
“We own this economy.”
For once in her life, Li’l Debbie was absolutely right.
Obama has become a sick joke.
How is taxing, spending and racking up trillions in debt a new idea?
Heck, I would take back the low taxes, the cuts in spending and balanced budget of the Republican Congress of the 90s over Obama’s current policies that evident failures
Laughable projection. Socialism is a tired old delegitimized world view popularized many years ago by a guy who never held a real job and looked strangely like Jerry Garcia. It has failed miserably every time it’s been tried, and is really only relevant in the classes taught by out of touch sociology and political science faculty (who also generally never held a real job) at tired old universities. Pathetic.
The "media" strategy which presents "regressive" as "progressive," "backward" as "forward," and "down" as "up." On and on it goes.
It's a strategy which goes deep into the decades-long effort to "fundamentally change" America from its new and revolutionary foundations in Creator-endowed liberty backward into the Old World and later Marxian ideas of control by imaginary human grantors and protectors.
Perhaps an answer to the once-asked question here on FR: "Why does Christianity 'scare' . . . ?" may lie in the degree to which the foundtion ideas upon which America's Declaration of Independence were laid and from which the concept of Creator-endowed individual liberty and the Source from which that liberty is derived have been removed from "the American mind" (Jefferson).
Perhaps the so-called "progressive" enemies of freedom understand better than those who fancy themselves as "conservatives" that in order to reverse the Founders' ideas of "People over government," and institute "government over People," they must first marginalize and destroy the ideas from which liberty is derived.
The writings of America's Founders are replete with references which rebuke would-be tyrants and cite a Higher Source for life, liberty and rights. Early histories confirm those facts.
As so-called "progressives" have led a movement in forsaking the Founders' "reliance on Divine Providence," and belief that individuals are "endowed by their Creator," they also have forsaken the principles underlying America's Constitution and Declaration of Independence, and are systematically dismantling the greatest protections for liberty ever established for a people.
"Ideas have consequences"(Weaver).
The ideas of 1776 came out of a set of ideas consistent with liberty.
We tend to forget, or have never considered, that other world views existed then, as now.
Unless today's citizens rediscover the ideas of liberty existing in what Jefferson called "the American mind" of 1776, we risk going back to the "Old World" ideas which preceded the "Miracle of America."
There are those who call themselves "progressives," when, in fact, their ideas are regressive and enslaving, and as old as the history of civilization.
Would suggest to any who wish an authentic history of the ideas underlying American's founding a visit to this web site, at which Richard Frothingham's outstanding 1872 "History of the Rise of the Republic of the United States" can be read on line.
This 600+-page history traces the ideas which gave birth to the American founding. Throughout, Richard Frothingham, the historian, develops the idea that it is "the Christian idea of man" which allowed the philosophy underlying the Declaration of Independence and Constitution to become a reality--an idea which recognizes the individual and the Source of his/her "Creator"-endowed life, liberty and law.
Is there any wonder that the enemies of freedom, the so-called "progressives," do not promote such authentic histories of America? Their philosophy puts something called "the state," or "global interests" as being superior to individuals and requires a political elitist group to decide what role individuals are to play.
In other words, they must turn the Founders' ideas upside-down in order to achieve a common mediocrity for individuals and power for themselves.
So, the still-revolutionary idea stated by both Ryan and Romney last week about the Source of our rights became fodder for the current President's disdain yesterday, when he declared that they were "reruns" from the 20th Century and better suited for "black and white" television. (Actually, Mr. President, they are from a time much earlier than that.)
As Jefferson wisely observed:
"History, by apprising the people of the past, will enable them to judge of the future; it will avail them of the experience of other times and other nations; it will qualify them as judges of the actions and designs of men; it will enable them to know ambition under every disguise it may assume; and knowing it, to defeat its views."
All of which reinforces our conviction that the ideas of our Declaration of Independence and Constitution are as revolutionary and objectionable to tyrants as they were in 1776 and 1787!
“Yeah, some of those old ideas like, THE CONSTITUTION, THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE!!”
And no joke, that is exactly what he means.
I have never understood the logic behind the notion that old is automatically bad and new is automatically good. Surely that is a very superficial way of reasoning.
No maatter what Obama, whatthe Bush family, the Clintons or the shadow government owned media says:
In spit of all the hoopla during the Republican convention, there was and has been something missing for generations now in both paratpoliical parties:
Something larger than life, absolutely essential to the ssurvival of our blessed country. Perhaps this an explain it far better than I:
That point in time never existed for anyone with a brain.
Obama’s ideas are all from Marx and Alinsky... all have been tried, and al have led to mass murder, subjugation, and starvation everywhere they’re tried.
What’s new about communism?
I’m beginning to think that a lot of people are just afraid of freedom. They prefer the security of slavery.
Freedom of Choice is what you got.
Freedom from Choice is what you want.
Raising taxes is such a novel concept.
The beginning of Roosevelt's first term is so close to Obama's, that it is eerie. It is like Obama is channeling Roosevelt, but to the Nth degree.
Projection as usual. It’s his updated Marxism that is outdated, and I wish the Romney campaign would point it out and call it by its name!
