Skip to comments.Obama: ‘I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth’
Posted on 04/18/2012 12:49:34 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
President Barack Obama took a hard-to-miss shot at presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney on Wednesday, declaring "I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth" as he defended his economic policies in Ohio.
Obama didn't name Romney. He didn't need to. The president and his campaign have worked to make the former Massachusetts governor and millionaire investor's personal finances an issue in the election even as they hammer his economic proposals as giveaways to the rich financed by cutting services to everyone elselike financial aid for college students.
"Somebody gave me an education. I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Michelle wasn't. But somebody gave us a chance," Obama said in a speech at Lorain County Community College in Elyria, Ohio. "Right now we have two competing visions of our future, and the choice could not be clearer," said the president. "Should we settle for an economy where a few people do really well and then a growing number are struggling to get by?"

“I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth”
He didn’t need one. He knew how to work the system to get through college with aid for foreign students.
Besides, everyone knows you don’t eat dog with a spoon!
But i bet he WAS the reason McDonalds had to change those old coffee stir sticks,, the ones that used to have a miniature coke spoon on the tip.
...about the same.
Going for the 1992 George H.W. Bush is out of touch template. Romney is self-made, so this isn’t going to fly with non-democrat base voters.
"Actually," he went on to say, "it was a coke spoon up my nose."
There is no end to this chap’s narcissism.
It’s always about Mr. Obama. Always.
1. Genetic dad was an America-hating radical sent to Harvard on someone else’s dime, later became a Senior Economist in Kenya
2. In Indonesia his family had THREE servants
3. Indo daddy’s job was actually a cushy sinecure —Indonesia stipulates that foreign oil firms must hire all kinds of Indonesian folks, and as long as they have connections with the Suharto Regime, you don’t need any real skills. Indo Daddy had the MAJOR hook-up and his daily duties were simply to GOLF and to go to dinner with influential oil company folks
4. WHO paid for Obama’s education?
“Somebody gave me an education.”
Well, let’s see your records and who it was paid by for you, Obama.
I had to work for mine and pay it all by myself.
“Somebody gave me an education...”
People I know have a good idea who paid for their education.
Neither was I and what diferene does it make? Whining again!!

In the US, there are educational opportunities for those who are not born rich.
I’m not surprised. I wouldn’t think there would be many silver spoons in Kenya ...
Yep and resentful about it
What a petulant man
The key to his tick is daddy.....as in why wasn’t I good enough for you to hang around Pa?
One hates America with every fiber of his body and one doesn’t.
Pray for America
his silver spoon is the race card he plays 24/7....
It doesn’t matter what the spoon was made of but what was ‘ON’ the spoon that you ate! EVIL!!
And it did ‘it’s’ work in you.
Whoops! I forgot:
4. His mom CHOSE to work in Indonesia, in fact that was part of the reason his Indo Daddy wearied of his mom —she was SUPPOSED to often go out to dinner with him, but she refused to.
5. The sad stories of his sick mom bravely battling her insurance company are totally false.
WE DO NOT KNOW OBAMA.
When in America did it become wrong to be successful. While I detest families like the Kennedy's who have never had to work a day in their lives, its the lack of character. that bothers me not the money. Do I have to starve my children and feed them dog, so they don't get accused of having had a silver spoon in their mouth? From Obama it's just hypocrisy anyhow - he never worked a honest days work in his life. And that's a lesson you can get no matter how you were born.
I’m guessing a hammer and sickle......
I say prove it. Release your records Obama!
You weren’t born in the US either.
We’ll settle for a Red Hammer and Sickle in your arse, you POS.
No silver spoon...just some poor dog processed by Gerber...
Of course not ... why every child in Hawaii goes to a highly prestigous High School, then goes on to Harvard Law School.
It’s not like those schools are elite, expensive and out of reach for the common man .... < /s>
I don’t know about what was in Barry’s mouth when he was born, but he has had his foot in his mouth a lot lately.
ABSOLUTELY, I didn’t qualify for a Foreign Aid, Fullbright Scholarship to go to college at the expense of American Taxpayers, and being a FOREIGNER at that. Some of us had to PAY back our National Defense Student Loans
Ah, but that little silver spoon up his nose has helped him do w-o-n-d-e-r-s for the country.
What a putz!
So...he would’ve run up MORE than 5 trillion dollars worth of debt if he WAS born with a silver spoon in his mouth?
God save us from this utterly worthless America-hating grifter.
I think we paid for his education as a foreign aid student.
The spoon in his mouth wasn’t silver,
but the diaper on his butt was red.
He didnt need one. He knew how to work the system to get through college with aid for foreign students.
Besides, everyone knows you dont eat dog with a spoon!
This is the first honest statement that Obama has made about his background in the past 4 years.
I wonder if Obama was misquoted above?
What I heard him say was this: "I was born with a forked-tongue in my mouth."
He was born with a hammer and sickle shoved up his butt!
I have an education but it wasn’t GIVEN to me. That’s not how it works and any one WITH an eduation KNOWS it!
However it’s paid for, an education only comes with hard work. “O” really is a regular half wit!!
I don’t know what bothers me most about this clown... that he is so plum dumb or that he thinks everyone else is!
True. Yet you grew to be a very powerful man.
So what does that say about the country you appear to hate?
The One just cracked open the door, Romney or Gingrich need kick it open. WHO gave you and Michelle an education? Somebody? Really? Who? We’ve never heard the story. Tell us won’t you? Was the somebody that GAVE you an education born with a silver spoon in his or her mouth? Maybe a royal spoon? We don’t know of whom you speak. Sounds like a wonderful story. PLEASE tell us the details. Was it a man or woman? An individual or family? He talked about someone should insist to hear about that person.
Maybe not, but he was born with his head up his arse and it is still firmly in place.
Don’t know how he ate dogs like that. Can’t even do that with a fork and a knife. Hmmmmm.
“I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth”
No, he was born with a red diaper on his azz.
He’s got us there. He was probably born in Kenya and was fed off of leaves.
Maybe not, but from your memories, it didn’t take long to begin stickin’ jit up your ass and others.
It’s really strange how all the photos of his past look like he was pasted in somehow.
He just looks out of place among other humans.
No silver spoon, but he did have a red diaper!
Romney was born into Mormon Royalty, a 170 year family of being part of the Mormon secretive and secret, ruling class, and of the original 12 disciples of Joseph Smith, a family of wealth and prestige, and power,k s true silver spoon guy, who's sole path to becoming head of the Republican party was to purchase it, which succeeded.
Currently, tuition at the Punahou school is $18,450/year for all grade levels K-12.
He looks like Trayvon
Shame on you! Coffee all over the screen. I hope you are happy now!
