I’m so sick of this a-hole, I can’t even be sick of him anymore.

Of course not. Just the results of someone else’s success.

'We Don't Believe Anybody Is Entitled to Success in This Country'

Wow, i.e., if you do all the hard work, bleed all the blood, sweat all the sweat, cry all the tears, and take all the risks, you're still not entitled to the fruits of your labor. But to the extent we deem you can keep some, after government gets its bite, we'll also award parasites a big healthy chunk. Because even parasites need to live. Ain't America great? The way we see it?

In the next debate, Romney should bring up this quote of Barry’s and say something like....”Well, with you as the president, that’s not going to be a problem, since there won’t be any successes.”

I love the comment he made about Obama picking losers, not picking winners and losers....lol.

“Obama: ‘We Don’t Believe Anybody Is Entitled to Success in This Country’”

We do not believe that anybody is entitled to success in this country.

I would not have said it that way. If you take "entitled" to mean authorized, empowered, enabled, permitted, or deserving, that statement means that he does not want anybody to succeed. Hmmmm.....

“...We do not believe that anybody is entitled to success in this country...”

My answer to him: What’s this “we” sh*t, Buckwheat?

If you work your butt off, put the sweat, time, hours, and labor into something, and it finally pays off, you ARE entitled to the success and better life it brings you.

And sometimes, even though you DO all those things, it doesn’t happen. That’s just the chance “we” take here. Part of being American, and living in a land where you DO get a shot at something better, to get a little bit of something better - but no guarantee of it.

It’s the chance to be in the chase...but no guarantee of catching the rabbit. THAT’S what we all get - a chance. What we do with it, however, is what determines the outcome.

Some folks don’t ever want to be in the chase - they want it handed to them, at the expense of those who worked for it. That’s HIS mentality, and the mentality of those that vote for him.

Once again, it shows how disconnected from the reality of American life, of BEING an American, that this affirmative action hire really is.

Gee, he is REALLY FALLING APART. That’s yet another open admission of how he is trying to block people from achieving economic success in America, where we are supposed to be at liberty to pursue our dreams.
The problem is he’s been doing this pretty darned well. Just look at the economy (and number of people employed). Alas!

Perhaps he’s been bitten with a Biden bug?
(Biden spills the beans or lets some truth out to us ... quite frequently it seems .... I love Biden for this! Otherwise, almost everything in this administration would stay covered up and hidden from us peons who only get to pay for all this garbage...).

“We believe in a country where hard work pays off and responsibilities are rewarded and everybody is getting a fair shot and everybody’s doing their fair share”

Does that include every inner city where you get 99.44% of the vote, Obama? Do tell.

For every 47% ad that BO puts out against Romney, Romney should counter with ads of Biden saying the middle class has been buried for 4 years. Put out an equal number as BO. Hammer right back at them.

RE :”We don’t believe that anybody is entitled to success in this country,” said Obama. “But we do believe in opportunity. We believe in a country where hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded, and everybody is getting a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody is playing by the same rules”

He is mixing conservative terms mixed with collectivist terms. He has been doing that for a while and Dems think it's brilliant.
But Romney is playing a similar game driving Dems nuts by reframing issues in a populist way.

“Trickle Down government” is really good.

” I am not going to cut the taxes of the rich, I am worried about the middle class and will cut their taxes”

” I am going to replace O-care with something better, and it will protect those with pre-existing conditions”

“I am not proposing cutting education funding, just Big Bird”
Fun watching Dems fuss about big bird.

“tax cuts for shipping jobs overseas? I have no idea what you are talking about”

Here is what loser smells like :

Just more mumbo jumbo RAT code speak for WEALTH REDISTRIBUTION. Joe the Plumber had this all figured out four years ago but few listened. Give him another four (the free phone recipients have already been bought) and America's TRANSFORMATION will indeed be completed. Under our form of Government we get the government we deserve. The tipping point has already been passed IMHO. I still can pray for a Mittens win, however.

“yet every moocher is entitled an Obama Phone.”

______________________________________________________

I live in Canada, but I get the Superstations, like WGN and outlets from Boston, NYC and Atlanta.

These commercials—Assurance government free phones—drive me absolutely nuts.

For example, in one, a mom is taking care of her sick daughter and says, “Now that I have Assurance, I can call her doctor.” Another says, “Now that have Assurance, I can keep in contact with my grandchildren.”

I don’t even have a cell phone, even though at this point, I probably earn, through actual work, less than the welfare recipients on these commercials receive. (Structural changes at my job and I need to find more work.)

Things are topsy-turvy today. I don’t know why cell phones have now become an essential item.

These people don’t have land lines or know anyone who does? Are they able to use a pay phone, or, Heaven forbid, use a taxi or a bus, or walk, to make an appointment?

I don’t get it.

Excellent deconstruction.

“Fair” has always been the left’s buzzword describing redistribution, and he who owns (or rather, steals) the gold makes the rules. In Obamaville, that would be Obama, naturally.

Obama’s books:
In a sane world, having the following comments out in print via Obama’s racist books would have knocked him out of the running for president of the United States.(they would have crucified a white candidate for far less)

From Dreams from My Father,“ I FOUND A SOLACE IN NURSING A PERVASIVE SENSE OF GRIEVANCE AND ANIMOSITY AGAINST MY MOTHER’S RACE”. Barack Hussein Obama

From ‘Dreams from my Father’,“The emotion between the races could never be pure, even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, THE OTHER RACE (WHITE) WOULD ALWAYS REMAIN JUST THAT: MENACING, ALIEN, AND APART.” Barack Hussein Obama

From Dreams from My Father:“THAT HATE HADN’T GONE” he wrote, BLAMING “WHITE PEOPLE — some CRUEL, some IGNORANT, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives.” Barack Hussein Obama

From ‘Dreams from My Father’,“There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs,” he wrote.“It remained necessary to prove which side you were on,to show your LOYALTY TO THE BLACK MASSES, TO STRIKE OUT and name names” Barack Hussein Obama
“Dreams From My Father,” page 101 (paperback, ISBN 978-1-4000-8277-3)

Dreams From My Father: To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists“Dreams From My Father,” pages 99-100

Then there is his love of Islam:

Quote from Barack Obama’s book, Dreams Of My Father:
“THE PERSON WHO MADE ME PROUDEST OF ALL, THOUGH, WAS MY [half brother], ROY..HE CONVERTED TO ISLAM”.

From ‘Dreams of my Father’,“IN INDONESIA, I SPEND TWO YEARS AT A MUSLIM SCHOOL”“..I STUDIED THE KORAN..”

From ‘Audacity of Hope:“LOLO (Obama’s step father) FOLLOWED ISLAM....”I LOOKED TO LOLO FOR GUIDANCE”.

From ‘The Audacity Of Hope,“I WILL STAND WITH THEM (MUSLIMS) SHOULD THE POLITICAL WINDS OF WAR SHIFT IN AN UGLY DIRECTION..”
.
From The Audacity Of Hope,“WE ARE NO LONGER JUST A CHRISTIAN NATION, we are also a Jewish nation, a MUSLIM NATION, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”
__________
Don’t believe it? Think these comments taken ‘out of context’? Here it all here in his own works;

The skinny basta*d continues to mouth the same old marxist/communist/socialist mantra. Like Romney told this ahole in the debate We the People in this great country believe in the Constitution, capitalism, life, liberty and the freedom to pursue our happiness. We do NOT walk and talk and work for the good of the “collective.”

Let us be sure to tell this ahole in November to grab his Saul Alinsky crap commie book of rules for the road for leftists, his teleprompter, his fist-pumping marxist for-hire “wife”, his shoe shine box AND get the hell out of the United States of America. Peddle it somewhere else.

Now, a question. Can oboma be arrested and tried for treason against the United States? What are the rules and regulations on this. He is responsible for attempting to overtake this country from his position as President of the United States through deception, lawlessness, disregard for the Constitution, OUR rights, OUR liberty and OUR ability to pursue happiness, not to mention his corruption of the media, with their full cooperation. Considering the magnitude of his attempts to destroy this country from within, can he be arrested and tried for treason after he loses the election?

If Zero believed that, he would not believe In the structure of the entitlement system he fosters. Barry actually very much believes his serfs are entitled to the success the government would determine to give them, and very much against the success individuals would “extract” from fellow citizens, i.e. unfiltered via government.

It was Madelyn Aldim in about April of 1997, who astoundingly (in conspiracy with Hilary Clinton, I believe) uttered that America doesn’t deserve to be the world’s only superpower. At that moment, I overwhelmingly felt then the evil and communist strong-arm working against America’s success.

No, the Obama regime personifies the cutting-down-to-size of the US!

When conservatives say: ‘We Don’t Believe Anybody Is Entitled to Success in This Country’

It means they have to work for it, and take their chances just like everyone else.

When liberals say: ‘We Don’t Believe Anybody Is Entitled to Success in This Country’

It means that if you are successful, they are PO’d at your selfishness and lack of compassion.

The problem is, a whole segment of the population has been raised, trained, and indoctrinated to believe that it IS in fact guaranteed.

It starts with “We Don’t Keep Score at this level”, and moves on to “Everybody dump your school supplies into this big, common box here”, and then to “Did you bring enough of that for EVERYBODY? No? Then you can’t have it either...”

They’re teaching our kids to be good little collectivists right under our noses, and most of the folks aren’t paying attention.

One of the reasons I coached baseball for so long was to try to undo some of that liberal brainwashing BS. And succeeded with a lot of the kids.

I think what he means by "...not anyone is entitled to success" is that success is not something that can be guaranteed, which of course is true.

The more pertinent point is that he then goes on to say that opportunity is guaranteed and that hard work and responsibility are rewarded, which is blatantly not true. I mean it should be true, but the policies he pursues give the lie to what he is promising there.

It doesn’t mean a thing. As my son says all Obama supporters need is a slogan to hang on to. And he’s used to his supporters being satisfied with a nicely crafted bumper sticker line.

But when he tried to use this tack at the debate it just didn’t fly. Those methods don’t work for a tv audience or a live audience that isn’t allowed to hoot and holler.
