Obama: 'I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth' (Obama steals lines like he steals our money)
msnbc ^ | 4/18/2012 | Ali Weinberg and Domenico Montanaro

Posted on 04/18/2012 3:04:40 PM PDT by tobyhill

President Obama said he related to middle class Americans “looking for a chance,” as he highlighted his administration’s efforts to retrain unemployed workers for new jobs.

"I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Michelle wasn't, either," the president said to a crowd of 400 students at Lorain County Community College in Elyria, Ohio. “But somebody gave us a chance. Just like these folks up here are looking for a chance.”

The Obama campaign has pushed wealth and economic fairness arguments against Mitt Romney, who would be one of the wealthiest presidents in history -- and that quote was quickly seen as a veiled reference to his GOP opponent this fall.

Yeah, I think it was more like a "black gold" spoon actually.

Obama was born with an affirmative action check mark by his name and has been unsuccessful by normal measures in all he has done, except in entertainment where his books has sold.

That puts in on the same level as Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton.

Clinton, and now Obama, are stealing everything that isn’t nailed down. And he makes a ‘fairness argument’ about the wealth status of another candidate? Like that’s relevant to anything?

And The Nuge wasn’t born with a bow in his hand, but like your silver spoon, it certainly is there now! The difference is that we know where Ted’s bow came from and who’s paying for it.

Really Barry? Just because your worthless Kenyan father bugged out on you doesn’t mean you grew up poor. Punahou Boy never lacked for anything. The last President who actually experienced poverty as a child was Ronald Reagan. So STFU, Harvard.

He was raised by his grandmother, who was VP of the largest bank in Hawaii (Bank of Hawaii).

He went to the private and very expensive PSRBSP (”Pounahou School for Rich Boys in Short Pants”).

Unlike most people, there is no record of his ever having worked at a real job except a brief stint in NYC, for a trading house which in his own biography he says he despised.

....Unless working for the Corrupt and grossly mismanaged ACORN is considered a “real job.”

His rich grandma sent him to the elite Pounahou School.

Here’s what the current tuition is for Pounahou:

Tuition for the 2011 – 2012 school year for Grades K – 12 is $18,450.

Living in and flying to Hawaii, Seattle, Indonesia. Going to Pounahou.

Yeah. Sounds rough. Poor kid. /ridicule

Seems to me that spoon was platinum if not solid, flawless diamond.

More on the rich-boy Pounahou School that his well-off grandma sent him to:

“The Punahou School campus covers 76 acres at the edge of lush Manoa Valley. Students occupy 44 school buildings, including three libraries and learning centers; computer areas and language labs; an impressive physical education facility (that includes a gymnasium, 50-meter pool, Mondo track, playing fields, racquetball and tennis courts, and weight and training facilities); and art facilities that include jewelry, ceramics and glassblowing.”

The website does not say how many silver spoons they have.

Wait a minute.
BHO went to the best private schools money could buy. His step dad was an executive in a big company. His grandparents were both professional people. He went to the best colleges and universities and never worked for the education.
Silver spoon, he dripped in silver.

I read on NRO that his Mother was earning 80,000 a year while working overseas doing “research” - I am not sure about what 80k buys in Malaysia, but I think it is silver spoon living for those folks.

lo·gom·a·chy   [loh-gom-uh-kee]
noun, plural -chies.
1. a dispute about or concerning words.
2. an argument or debate marked by the reckless or incorrect use of words; meaningless battle of words.
3. a game played with cards, each bearing one letter, with which words are formed.

All ideological statements by Barack Logoma are degraded by his reckless and often incorrect use of words. (Yes I know that it's often campaign related and "they all do it"; do they really?)

Yeah, guys like Romney, with a little bit of money and plenty of courage,sweat and business sense, give people a better chance of succeeding by building businesses... far better than anything the government can offer.

I know... back in the mid nineties I started a company with a credit card and $15,000 loan. Today it employs over 15,000 people. I gave them more than a chance... gave them an opportunity to have a good future.

Some unnamed person or group gave him the silver spoon via his college education. He didn’t earn money of any kind either before school or while in school. How did he get to college. He didn’t get there on a scholarship, his grades were nothing to brag about, that’s why they are hidden. Who helped him and why is it a secret.

But he was born with a silver dildo up his woo hoo.

0bama lived in a middle class neighborhood and went to a private school from the fifth grade on in Hawaii.

The 0bama File

The Dunhams enrolled "Barry Obama" in the prestigious Punahou School, starting in the fifth grade. He attended Punahou on a scholarship, through the generosity of many donors, and the influence of Stanley Armour's boss, who was a Punahou alum. Obama walked the five blocks from his grandmother's apartment on Beretania to the school.

With more than 3,000 students, Punahou is the largest private school in the country, and it sits on a lush, sprawling campus in Honolulu. The school is elite and wealthy.

A poor President like Bill Clinton is forced to sell classified military technology to foreign powers just to build a modest retirement nest egg in secret offshore banks.
