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”
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!
President Obama, please explain more about the $300k plus/year job that was given to your wife after you were elected to the US Senate. My understanding is that this job didn’t exist until it was given to her and ceased exist after she left. If I am right about this, please explain to those of us who have to go to extrordinary lengths just to hold on to much lesser paying jobs why we should sympathise with your perceived economic plight.
No, he had affirmative action which obviously counts for more than a silver spoon. With a silver spoon someone had to work for it even if it was generations ago, affirmative action is a freebie and all you have to know how to do is ‘march’.
I wasnt born with a silver spoon in my mouth
Perhaps not but you sure ride high off of the back’s of the rest of America you self loathing muslim marxist America hating gutless hypocrite .
Obama continued, “I wasn’t wanted from conception on. Sadly, my mom had no access to an abortion. She was going to give me up for adoption in canada but st the last minute she kept me. Yes, I was a punishment to her. My dad just wanted a little sex from an underage white American. And look what has happened.”
A silver spoon is inferior to affirmative action,
because a silver spoon doesn’t render you immune from criticism.
Really early for Bam-Bam to play the silver spoon card — their internals must be tanking.
That’s a lot of penut brittle
