Carney: GOP trying to change the subject with 'redistribution' tape
politico44 ^ | 9/19/12 | BYRON TAU

Posted on 09/19/2012 11:37:27 AM PDT by ColdOne

The White House suggested that an old tape of President Obama endorsing 'redistribution' is an attempt by Mitt Romney's campaign to change the subject.

"I would say that all of us who follow politics and policy, whether we're on this side or your side of the podium have seen circumstances like this were a campaign is having a a very bad day or a very bad week," White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters Wednesday.

"In circumstances like that, there are efforts made, sometimes desperate efforts to change the subject," he said.

Bullstalin. The tape is more evidence that Barack Obama has always believed in Marxist redistribution of wealth. Something his handlers have long denied.

Just like Obama using the Romney tape to take the media OFF of the Middle East PR disaster.

Carney really is one of the biggest idiots (next to “don't mess with” Joe Biden) that has ever served in a cabinet isn't he?

No, the subject hasn’t been changed. Just different perspectives on the same subject. Of course the media will spin it differently.

Lets change the subject back to something important like Obummers foreign policy disaster and the murder of our diplomat team. We can also include Obummer ignoring the warning he received about the attack.

Carney: GOP trying to change the subject with 'redistribution' tape

Since you don't want to talk about your boss being a SOCIALIST, what SHOULD we talk about Mr. Chief Propaganda Minister Carney? 0bama's naive foreign policy? his record on the economy?
... or maybe you'd like to talk about how his golf and bball games have improved over the last four years, or what luxury vacation he is planning next?

Andrea Mitchell: NBC Hasn’t “Authenticated” Obama Redistribution Clip, Won’t Air

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2933399/posts

“But the basic issue is they’re accusing President Obama, as John Sununu said to be yesterday, of class warfare. That is trying to change the subject,” Mitchell added.

Carney: GOP trying to change the subject with 'redistribution' tape

No, Jay, you Rachel Maddow lookalike, it's not changing the subject; it's simply underscoring the other side of the equation. The Democrats have for more than a generation relied on introducing people to dependency on government as a means of locking in a voting base. This is no secret. The "redistribution" tape is just another example in a long, long line of this Democrat ploy.

As opposed to changing the subject of Obama’s bounce being over and Middle East in flames.

an old tape of President Obama endorsing 'redistribution'

Awwww. . . Don't mention it. Actually, mention it again and again, will you?

Thanks for taking the bait, and letting us live rent-free in your press conference! And thanks especially for mentioning 0bummer alongside his favorite policy—"redistribution," which is so popular amongst Americans who know how to personally cast a ballot.

No, Romney’s subject change is from the 47% video—which the Obama campaign had released to change the subject from the deadly meltdown of his entire foreign policy.

Carney....you Dolt! How is that changing the subject...the mere fact that 47% or whatever it is...are not paying taxes....means that somebody else is paying.....Re-distribution....they are taking money from people in the form of higher taxes to pay for all the free stuff the
47%ers are getting. I swear everyday these people remain in power, my IQ goes up a point!

Funny, that’s exactly what Andrea Mitchell said. Wonder where she got her talking points.

Just like Andrea Mitchell, Carney must have looked up the definition of “redistribution of wealth = socialism/communism

The 47% = Redistribution = Socialism = The Subject.

They are for increasing it. We are for decreasing it.

The tape may be a reminder, but in 2008, all that was necessary for voters to understand the beliefs of the man they would elect would have been a hard look at his voting record. Didn't want to know, and don't want to be reminded now, pure and simple.

Ignore, ignore, ignore, and watch as America's citizens go from independence to dependence under a "we can't wait" Executive who defies the Constitution's limitations on his power.

His supporters deny it, too. They hate Joe the Plumber for being there for obama to talk to. If Joe had run inside the house obama couldn’t have told him what he wanted to do. sarc?

For a week, the media pretended Joe the Plumber didn't exist. When he was mentioned in the debate, the spin was that it was a name like "Joe Six-pack" (not the FReeper by that name), just an "everyman". Those millions who listen to Rush Limbaugh and other talk radio show hosts had heard the clip again and again and knew exactly what was being discussed.

Then the media (and unelected Democrats working in state offices) set out to smear "Joe" for making Obama look bad.

The assertion that Barack Obama is a socialist became a hallmark of the 2008 presidential campaign. His opponent, John McCain, used Obama’s own extemporaneous words to an Ohio plumber as Exhibit A: “When you spread the wealth around,” Obama had said, “it’s good for everybody.” That, McCain insisted, sounded “a lot like socialism,” as did Obama’s proposals to raise taxes on the wealthy and high earners for the explicit purpose of taking better care of the lower and middle classes with that redistributed money.
