This country does not just succeed when just a few are doing well at the top,” Obama said, according to a rush transcript of the remarks. “It succeeds when the middle class gets bigger. Our economy does not grow from the top-down, it grows from the middle-out. We do not believe that anybody is entitled to success in this country. But we do believe in opportunity. 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. And everybody’s paying by the same rules. That is the country believe in. That is what we have been fighting for the last four years. That is what we’re going to put in place in the next four years if you reelect me as president of the United States of America.”
Anyone else says this and it means equal opportunity. When he says it it means redistribution of wealth.
“...and everybodys doing their fair share.”
His base isn’t going to like that one.
That's interesting. He apparently realized his oops. Here's what he said in his closing statement at the debate:
.....they have an opportunity to succeed. And everybodys getting a fair shot and everybodys getting a fair share. Everybodys doing a fair share and everybodys playing by the same rules.
soooooo, will R&R be able to articulate that this statement means that 'the rich' should pay their fair share, %-wise, as the '47%' ??? or does this mean that the '47%' needs to be paying more ???
better get slo joe out in front and doing damage control...doh !!!
but green jobs deserve success yes? I mean that’s why we support them with our tax dollars, right?
Did Obamugabe say this today in Virginia? (or was it yesterday?)
What’s wrong with this statement is that Obama’s policies have consistently shrunk the middle class. If he’s the man for the middle class, why is there fewer of them and more poor?
The bottom line is that in the America that most of us remember and love, it is possible for anyone to become one of those ‘few at the top’. The reality is that when people reaching for the top don't make it all the way, they wind up populating the middle class. That's a good thing, but Obama doesn't understand it. His world view is, like so many on the left, one in which there are only Tiny Tims and Scrooges.
I can’t take it. “Spreading the wealth” is EXACTLY entitling people to success, even if it is mediocre success.
My God, please deliver us from this nightmare.
FORGET IT, YOU LYING POS!! You will be kicked to the curb and 'we the people' will be SUCCESSFUL at it!
“And everybodys paying by the same rules. “
47% who pay no taxes?
The only thing that grows from the “middle-out” is Moochelle...
“and everybodys doing their fair share. “
I’m so sick of this a-hole, I can’t even be sick of him anymore.
“We believe in a country where hard work pays off and responsibilities are rewarded and everybody is getting a fair shot and everybodys doing their fair share”
Does that include every inner city where you get 99.44% of the vote, Obama? Do tell.
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?
What a ef’in moron. What if said middle class kid wants to make money and fly a private jet when he grows up? Why can’t that be possible? To excel, that is.
The more money, the more money will be entrusted. What makes it wrong for me to entrust my work and money into a successful person?
All of this big government Obama supports is top down. What is centralized cgovernment control if not top down? Obamacare is top down! Dodd-Frank is top down! His trillion dollar stimulus was top down! All of his liberalism s top down!
It succeeds when the middle class gets bigger.
Give it a rest Obama...You Marxist Commie Rat Liar.
Leftists have always Lied and destroyed the Middle classes..
It’s Over You lying “RED”....
Yes, it all sounds very good doesnt it - but unfortunately he has to walk the walk. Its all very well him saying he believes in opportunity and hard work and responsibility being rewarded, but his policies rather deny those things.
