Obama touts 'economic patriotism' in 2-minute ad
AP via Columbus Dispatch ^ | 9/27/2012 | MATTHEW DALY & KEN THOMAS

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is pitching a broad economic argument to voters before next week's debate with Republican opponent Mitt Romney, buying TV time in seven battleground states to promote a "new economic patriotism."

In a two-minute ad, Obama looks into the camera as he promotes an economic plan he says will create 1 million manufacturing jobs, cut oil imports and hire thousands of new teachers.

[Snip]

Obama flubbed a line at Kent State while building to his argument for keeping jobs in the United States. He mistakenly said, "I want to see us export more jobs." He quickly corrected himself, saying he meant to say "export more products."

Patrotism, to the Left, means loyalty to government.

Ok. If you’ve got this spectacular plan that’s going to turn us around economically, why wait until your second term to implement it? What have you been doing for the past 4 years? You screw around your first term and now you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work in your second? Do you really think we’re that stupid?

Idiot.

Exactly. Just what do the ‘Progressives’ mean by ‘patrotism’? It is not ‘home of the brave, land of the free’. It’s ‘home of the gravy train, land of the freebies’. It is not the ideals that I will sacrifice for, it is not my country. I will sit back and wait for the ‘Cultural Revolution’; Preparred accordingly.

“He mistakenly (Freudian slip...the truth slips out) said, “I want to see us export more jobs.”

The correct rule of thumb is to assume that whatever a Dem says, is a lie, until proved otherwise.

The question with Obabaa and the Dems is not whether or not they are lying (common), but whether or not they are telling the truth (rare to non-existent).

In 4 years, the only thing Obabaa has improved is his golf game.

I think he's saying: "Get out there and buy stuff, so I don't look so bad."

Americans appear to be (somewhat involuntarily) returning to an earlier era of thrift. Unfortunately -with the entire economy based on the continuance of profligacy - that trend will destroy what remains of the last thirty years of excess, taking a lot of good people and well-run companies with it.

Virtually all of his ads running here are about “Economic Patriotism”. It’s as if he is channeling Ross Perot from 1992. Forget what I told them over in Ohio in 2008....elect me again and this time I WILL end NAFTA and outsourcing. Honest and hope to die. Totally disgusting how the Dems trot out this dead horse every four years.

"He mistakenly said, “I want to see us export more jobs.”

You should see the headlines this morning at NYT, WaPO, CBS, NBC, ABC over this "gaffe". I've never seen anything like it... NYT: "Will Obama's outsourcing gaffe cost him the election?"; WaPo: "Obama makes crucial gaffe in key swing state", etc. They're absolutely hammering him! (/Sarcasm, of course)

Obamugabe is supposedly running away with Ohio but is running a 2 minute propaganda piece there? Really?

Gee, sounds like even Obamugabe doesn’t believe those polls.

What a difference four years makes.

Here's Ubama in 2008 describing the debt incurred under President Bush as "unpatriotic".

July 3, 2008: Obama says adding $4 trillion to debt is unpatriotic

"We now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back. $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That's irresponsible. It's unpatriotic."

By the way, in this video from JULY 3, 2008, Obama claimed A LOT!!!

Barack Obama on Veterans in Fargo, ND

We should give him a score card on all that he promised. Building a 21st Century VA, reforming PTSD, etc. One ad for each issue scored.

Patrotism, to the Left, means loyalty to government.

But only when it's controlled by Democrats.

Here is Obama's full quote from July 3, 2008. He calls out President Bush as being UNPATRIOTIC one day before our Independence Day.

"The problem is that the way [President] Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents -- number 43 added $4 trillion dollars by his lonesome -- so that we now have over $9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back. [That's] $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That's irresponsible. It's unpatriotic."

It’s 0bama’s Five Year Plan. What will we have for our “economic patriotism?” Recognition for “Stakhonovites?” Go fill your quota, comrade!

This is actually a copy of the ABC American jobs weekly segment. Libs begging the economy to get better.

” he promotes an economic plan he says will create 1 million manufacturing jobs”

At a cost of 2 million per job, no doubt. And what will they be manufacturing?

“cut oil imports”

Creating an oil shortage here at home.

Patrotism, to the Left, means loyalty to government.

In "Obama-speak," economic patriotism means if you're a working, productive citizen--you stop griping about high taxes are. You forgo large, suburban houses for the inner-city blight of stacked high-rise apartments. You skip private schools completely, in favor of public schools. You give up once-cherished economic choices, in favor of single, lower standard, but expensive products (Chevy Volt, anyone?). You shut up about new government plans and schemes, designed to spread the wealth around, and you let the czars do as they see fit.

If you're currently mooching from the government, at some point, the gravy train will end. Once the economy is securely under the government's thumb, your handouts will become lesser...there will be less to go around, and there won't be a need for the party in power to give away baubles for votes. If you're currently mooching, you be quiet when those monthly checks get smaller; more people will be counting on them, and there's only so much to go around. You take pride in standing in lines...lines for unemployment benefits, lines for health benefits, lines for mass transit benefits, lines for single mother benefits, lines at the soup kitchen, lines at local food pantries.

Economic patriotism for all!

Geez, Obama is running against the incumbent.

It's a bizarre thing to watch, isn't it?

The instigator of the mess is strolling through the wreckage apparently with blinders on while waving to his adoring followers from The View, Letterman, and other frivolous venues (brings to mind Tiny Tim strumming his ukelele and singing "Tiptoe Through the Tulips"). This fraud has a nerve to talk about "patriotism" while the US economy is in shambles, the ME burns, and his administration is caught repeatedly lying to the American people.

Obama's version of "economic patriotism":

The National Debt has now increased more during President Obama's three years and two months in office than it did during 8 years of the George W. Bush presidency. The Debt rose $4.899 trillion during the two terms of the Bush presidency. It has now gone up $4.939 trillion since President Obama took office. The latest posting from the Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department shows the National Debt now stands at $15.566 trillion.* It was $10.626 trillion on President Bush's last day in office, which coincided with President Obama's first day. The National Debt also now exceeds 100% of the nation's Gross Domestic Product, the total value of goods and services. Mr. Obama has been quick to blame his predecessor for the soaring Debt, saying Mr. Bush paid for two wars and a Medicare prescription drug program with borrowed funds. The federal budget sent to Congress last month by Mr. Obama, projects the National Debt will continue to rise as far as the eye can see. The budget shows the Debt hitting $16.3 trillion in 2012, $17.5 trillion in 2013 and $25.9 trillion in 2022.

*exceeds $16 TR as we speak
