(CNSNews.com) - In a speech delivered at Osawatomie High School in Osawatomie, Kansas, on Tuesday, President Barack Obama argued that while a limited government that preserves free markets "speaks to our rugged individualism" as Americans, such a system "doesn't work" and "has never worked" and that Americans must look to a more activist government that taxes more, spends more and regulates more if they want to preserve the middle class.
"'[T]here is a certain crowd in Washington who, for the last few decades, have said, lets respond to this economic challenge with the same old tune.

The empirical evidence demonstrates thatyou are, YET AGAIN, WRONG!
It is overreaching government and burdensome tax rates that crushes economies.
You are naught but a Pedantic Pultroon!
At least once in every one of his speeches Obama proves he’s an idiot and proud of it.
Obama just gave his concession speech yesterday. Stick a fork in, his is cooked.
King Obama the communists black Muslim. And there are millions just don’t get it.
Not his fault, he’s just reading what’s on the teleprompter.
Clearly what is needed is a Soviet-style, centrally-planned economy, because that is what has always worked best and would still be working in Russia if Ronald Reagan had not had the stupid idea that people prefer freedom.
He loves to say things that just aren’t true, hoping his listeners will slavishly adore his words and won’t look elsewhere, where they might find the truth.
I wonder if 0 passed out copies of “Das Kapital” to all who attended the speech?
That's the major reason that it's imperative he be stopped from having another term. And I'm willing to accept ANY Republican, however flawed, who can do that.
bump for my Obama supporting, over educated, smug dumbass brother to read
In the face of overwhelming evidence, he stays focused on his Marxist goals.
Talk about systems that don't work - ask Europe how this is all working out for them.
Hussein is no longer able to contain his communist beliefs.
a clear and present danger to the Republic, Freedom, Natural and Common law.
Obama’s Big Government Keynesian economics are failing in Europe right now. This must mean he is stupid.
Zero is just a high-priced bag man for a claque of feudal fascists.
