Obama: ‘Nobody Wants to Get Something for Nothing' By Terence P. Jeffrey May 29, 2012

(CNSNews.com) - Speaking Thursday afternoon in Newton, Iowa, President Barack Obama pitched his idea for $5 billion in new tax credits for companies that manufacture equipment—such as windmill blades and solar panels—for “clean energy” companies.

“Nobody wants a handout,” Obama said. “Nobody wants to get something for nothing.”

Obama was visiting TPI Composites, a company that manufactures blades for windmills, to pitch the fourth item on the five-item “To-Do” list of legislative actions he says he would like Congress to take this year. This particular item is: “Create Jobs By Investing In Affordable Clean Energy”

A statement put out by the White House on Thursday explained the substance of Obama’s request.

“Congress needs to help put America in control of its energy future by passing legislation that will extend the Production Tax Credit to support American jobs and manufacturing in the wind industry alongside an expansion of the 48C Advanced Energy Manufacturing Tax Credit that supports American-made clean energy manufacturing,” the White House said.

“The Production Tax Credit, which expires at the end of 2012, provides a 2.2 cent per kilowatt hour credit for utility scale wind producers,” said the White House.

“In the Recovery Act, $2.3bn in 48C credits were offered, and the program was over-subscribed by more than 3-to-1, meaning that over $5 billion projects with merit did not get funding,” said the White House. “The President’s plan calls for an additional $5 billion in credits, which would support at least $17 billion in direct investment in clean energy manufacturing facilities.”

Hey nobama, show up with me as I volunteer on a weekly basis as a triage interviewer at a local food/clothing bank. You'll learn all sorts of amazing things.

He may not be stupid, but he thinks we are.

Fifty seven percent of households in which immigrants live are collecting at least one welfare check.The report found that the majority of people on welfare are not even residents or citizens of the country.

Only 57%? It's a way of life for them. Living the *American dream* on our dime.

OBAMA'S GONNA PAY FOR MY GAS...
Millions like her voted... SCRIPT: "It was the most memorable time of my life. It was a touching moment because I never thought this day would ever happen. I won't have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won't have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know, if I help him, he's gonna help me." - Peggy Joseph 10/30/2008


Obama’s Stash (Oct 8, 2009)
new audio today from Ken Rogulski of WJR. Detroit Free Press: "'Cobo a Scene of Desperation' --

"Some were treated by emergency medical workers on site," as they showed up to pick up Obama money. "It was one of the most dramatic signs to date of how deeply joblessness and the home foreclosure crisis have pushed people from the lower and middle ends of the economic scale to seek help wherever they can.

ROGULSKI: Why are you here?
WOMAN #1: To get some money.
ROGULSKI: What kind of money?
WOMAN #1: Obama money.
ROGULSKI: Where's it coming from?
WOMAN #1: Obama.
ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get it?
WOMAN #1: I don't know, his stash. I don't know. (laughter) I don't know where he got it from, but he givin' it to us, to help us.
WOMAN #2: And we love him.
WOMAN #1: We love him. That's why we voted for him!
WOMEN: (chanting) Obama! Obama! Obama! (laughing)
ROGULSKI: Did you get an application to fill out yet?
WOMAN: I sure did. And I filled it out, and I am waiting to see what the results are going to be.
ROGULSKI: Will you know today how much money you're getting?
WOMAN: No, I won't, but I'm waiting for a phone call. BR> ROGULSKI: Where's the money coming from? BR> WOMAN: I believe it's coming from the City of Detroit or the state.
ROGULSKI: Where did they get it from?
WOMAN: Some funds that was forgiven (sic) by Obama.
ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get the funds? BR> WOMAN: Obama getting the funds from... Ummm, I have no idea, to tell you the truth. He's the president.
ROGULSKI: In downtown Detroit, Ken Rogulski, WJR News.

Surprise!...
Surprise!!...
Surprise!!!...

‘Nobody Wants to Get Something for Nothing'

We aren't concerned about "Nobody" wanting to get something for nothing.

we are concerned "Somebody" wanting to get something for nothing.

In fact there are already billions of dollars in handouts going out to "Somebody" who hasn't earned it and doesn't deserve it.

“Obama: ‘Nobody Wants to Get Something for Nothing’.”

If that statement weren’t so pathetic it would be extremely humrous.

Yet another farcical - and patently untrue - statement from America’s Moron-in-Chief.
