Obama: I'm not trying to 'redistribute wealth'
Washington Examiner ^ | 4/9/12 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 04/10/2012 4:11:27 PM PDT by Nachum

President Obama, who famously called for tax increases on the wealthy to "spread the wealth around," denied today that his tax increases on the rich are an attempt to "redistribute wealth." "So these investments -- in things like education and research and health care -- they haven't been made as some grand scheme to redistribute wealth from one group to another," the president said today at Florida Atlantic University. "This is not some socialist dream," Obama added as hecalled for tax increases on millionaires today to pay for those investments.

Gee, I wonder why he scheduled an event in Florida today?

Maybe because the Trayvon riots were scheduled to start....he could have been the healer in chief, soul sister soul searcher, etc.

He is trying to destroy it.

I specifically remember seeing a clip of him early in 2009, when he said, “I am the President of the United States. No one should make more than me.” He pointed to his chest, too.

While Bill Clinton was an unusually good liar, Hillary was/is a congenital liar, Baraq is a pathological liar. He lies even when the truth is acceptable. He lies with his every utterance.

Obama’s projections expose a disturbing psychology.

To: Rebelbase

—Mental Illness: Obama’s family tree is replete with the unbalanced. His maternal great-grandmother committed suicide. His grandfather, Stanley Dunham, was particularly unhinged: He was expelled from high school for punching his principal; named his daughter Stanley because he wanted a boy; and exposed young Barry to not just drunken trash talk, but unrestricted visits with alleged pedophile Frank Marshall Davis (who might or might not be Obama’s biological father). Barack Sr. was an abusive, alcoholic bigamist.

Since mental illness runs in the family, does Obama have any signs? Yes and no. No, he is not a schizophrenic babbling about Martians. But there are red flags for some other conditions.

While Obama doesn’t appear to hallucinate, he seems to have delusions. His believing he has a Messiah-like special gift smacks of grandiose delusions. His externalizing all blame to conservatives, George W. Bush, or the “racist” bogeyman hints at persecutory delusions.

......................

—Trauma: My gut tells me that Obama was seriously traumatized in childhood. His mother disregarded his basic needs, dragged him all over the place, and ultimately abandoned him.

But I think there may be something even more insidious in his family background. While I can’t prove it, the degree of Obama’s disconnect reminds me of my sexually abused clients.

With serious sexual abuse, the brain chemistry may change. The child dissociates — that is, disconnects from his being — in order to cope. Many adult survivors still dissociate, from occasional trances to the most extreme cases of multiple personality disorder.

Apparently, young Barry was left in the care of Communist Frank Marshall Davis, who admitted to molesting a 13-year-old girl. As a teenager, Obama wrote a disturbing poem, “Pop,” that evoked images of sexual abuse — for instance, describing dual amber stains on both his and “Pop’s” shorts.

Would trauma explain Obama’s disconnect? In many ways, yes. A damaged and unattached child may develop a “false self.” To compensate for the enormous deficits in identity and attachment, the child invents his own personality. For Obama, it may have been as a special, gifted person.

....................

.... Obama will not change. He will not learn from his mistakes. He will not grow and mature from on-the-job experience. In fact, over time, Obama will likely become a more ferocious version of who he is today.

Why? Because this is a damaged person. Obama’s fate was sealed years ago growing up in his strange and poisonous family. Later on, his empty vessel was filled with the hateful bile of men like Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers.

Obama will not evolve; he will not rise to the occasion; he will not become the man he was meant to be. This is for one reason and one reason alone:

He is not capable of it

Exactly. Every time he steps in crap, he and his minions find a manipulative way to blame Republicans/Bush/Etc. He seems to be a classic sociopath. If psychiatrists had told the truth about him he would have never been let near the Oval Office.

I’ve looked for that. It’s gonesville.

I can only testify to what I saw. Maybe the words were make, not earn, or some such.

There are some things that have specifically stuck with me from early on, that I wish I’d copied down to the PC. The image of him on that Canadian tarmac, flanked by NOI security. This, about the $400,000 salary and him pointing to himself. I didn’t know if he earned $400,000, which is why I remember it. And the Organizing for Amerika graphic with Dan Burton’s words and picture.

All of these are gone. But, on my sainted mother’s grave, I saw and heard them. Each of them.

Believe it or not.

Just a reminder: “Buffett Rule” that Obama won’t stop talking about is aimed mainly at around 400 taxpayers

Of course he’s not “redistributing wealth”. It’s stealth reparations.

One Warren Buffett and the rest poor.

No, not that. It’s Obama and the Party Nomenklatura on one side, and the serfs on the other. Warren Buffett is no more than a tool in the eyes of Obama, and would get liquidated when he is no longer useful. I have been re-reading the Communist Manifesto. Marx viewed the capitalists as a necessary tool before a commmunist society could be established (yes, he wrote that!), I suspect because deep down he knew that such a society could not build anything that capitalism could. Communism can not even break even. It’s economic decline is inevitable, so it needs to find some sucker capitalist to get things going, and then just sponge off the flywheel. Thus the Soviet Union. And also Communist China, which tolerates capitalism which it needs to get the flywheel spun up again.

Obama is a Communist. Four more years (if only four more years) will be destructive to this economy, since his true colors will be shown in maximum overdrive.

Obama: I'm not trying to 'redistribute wealth'

It's interpretation: He's not trying to 'redistribute wealth'

He's already done it by increasing the national debt phenomenally.

If the Supreme Court Justices pass the staggering tax pox upon our nation known as Obamacare. The IRS will make sure monies collected go into democrat coffers and employ democrat union and activist organization (Acorn) coffers for the "work" they'll do.

It's the ultimate democrat redistribution scam ever. Between global warming (known as green energy in the USA) and Obamacare, it's hard to tell whose pockets will be enriched most and accountability will be split so much that no one will ultimately be accountable.
