"Too many folks still don't have a sense that tomorrow will be better than today. And so, the question in this election is which way do we go?" President Obama asked at a fundraiser in Chicago on Sunday.
"Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?" Obama asked. "Or do we go backward to the same policies that got us in the mess in the first place?"
"I believe we have to go forward," Obama said. "I believe we have to keep working to create an America where no matter who you are, no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, no matter what your last name is, no matter who you love, you can make it here if you try. That's what's at stake in November. That's what is why I am running for a second term as president of the United States of America."

Wrong, Zero. Socialism is MISERY shared.
....a new view of America where Misery is shaerd.
You Didn’t Make That Pie! P>
Dear Leader, I believe that I would call you a FAILED president.
Givers & takers. I just hope we’re not outnumbered come Nov.
NO! We go forward into a world in which each and every soul has the right to the fruits of his or her own labors. Telling a man that he must work for the sole benefit of others is like telling a lion it must not kill antelope for the benefit of the antelope. This pedantic little man has no concept of freedom or liberty. He is the epitome of a person educated beyond his intelligence......
Well, so much for opportunity......it is really outcome in his lexicon.
Communism, socialism, fascism, whatever moniker you want to ascribe to Obama's brand of tyranny, CANNOT bring every citizen to the level and living standard of a millionaire. The BEST that his ideology can hope for is to bring everyone down to a common denominator status - and that status is nowhere even near privileged in any capacity.
It is Obama & Crew's dirty little secret. The only thing he gains from accomplishing this 'leveling' is an easier base to pander to.
I think the ‘thrill is gone’. LOL! Check out these pictures:
Not ‘givers & takers’, parasites and hosts...........
Under Obama’s direction there is no prosperity to share - merely universal misery.
And now they don't even have to act like they are looking for a job to get some of Obams's Taxpayer Stash!
Obama and his ilk are all about “visions”...nancy Pelosi has been having visions of talking to ghosts lately. None of the obamas visions have come true in his first term, so they were lies too.
Insofar as “sharing prosperity” goes...how much did the obamas give to charity last year?
Obama will say, and do, anything to get reelected...and this speech was just another episode in buying the entitlement crowd...it was essentially the same pitch he made to “Joe the plumber” almost four years ago.
How many Chicago gang bangers are on Social Security Disability? And how many want MORE of the country’s ‘prosperity’ shared - with them? Lots - it’s the Chicago Way... Steal from those who have - to buy drugs for those who don’t have....
Your thinking is flawed, Mr. President. Under your preferred system, there will be no prosperity to share.
What “mess” is he talking about? He’s been president for almost four years now. He’s the man. How do you rail against the man when you are the man???
He inherited a mess, allegedly. But even so, he’s had almost four years to work on it. Are we any better off? Can he point to any tangible progress made towards solving these alleged messes he was stuck with??????
Sounds like Communism to me. As another poster noted, prosperity is not shared under socialism/communism (or whatever you want to call it). It is misery that is shared. That’s where we are headed to day...as the average cost of living increases and the average earnings decreases, we are all worse off under his vision.
Individuals prosper when the economy grows. Reagan proved it, and after a generation accepted it, we prospered as a nation for 25 years. Now, we are going a different direction, and the results are much, much worse than what we just enjoyed for a generation.
The only answer he deserves.
There is nothing new about the vision in which prosperity is "shared" by government command.
It's been tried in National Socialist Germany, Soviet Socialist Russia, Mao's People's Republic of China, Cuba, Viet Nam, Yugoslavia, North Korea, East Germany, and many other places that traded the difficulties before communism for abject misery after prosperity was shared under the command of people who believe what Obama believes. No, thank you, I'll keep my freedom. Those wealthier than me can keep the prosperity that they earned. They built it - it's not mine.
Just SAY IT Obozo- “Share The Wealth” - right?
Tell the people we should embrace Marxism you lying sack of sh!t.
Rush has it right when he says that liberals want equality of results rather than equality of opportunity (with the exception of their Bourgeois selves, of course).
There is nowhere else in the world that an anti-patriotic, unqualified, 'fairy tale' community organizer could be elected President. And that is because of the shared Prosperity that is infused and inherent in the opportunity, goodwill and abundance of the American tradition that this treasonous Occupier is trying to fundamentally change. Your eviction notice will be served soon.
As the free market society of America has always had the highest charity rates of any nation in history, it is clear that the Old America shares its wealth.
The new America with the government hands tightly wrapped around the throat of commerce regulating it to death has impoverished us all and sharply reduced the ABILITY to share.
Obama and the Chichago thugocracy is exactly the wrong way to accomplish his empty promises.
Responsible leaders that have enough basic business sense to actually write, pass and follow a budget is the right way. It is past time to flush Congress, the bowl is full.
Obama, no you were not the first to come up with this in America. I think The Black Hand (la manna nera) came up with this long before your rancid body arrived on the planet.
shared is Newspeak for I take what you earned. What an despicable generation of worthless scoundrels we have raised for this message to have led to a Presidency in the first place.
That's right Obama ... a gay black man from Kenya named Obama can become president ... why would you want to change it ?
Shared is another word for THEFT
Obama says ‘we're not really stealing what you earned, because you didn't earn it... you got ‘help’ so you're no different than a third generation dependent welfare family.” Help? What help? The regulations? Taxes? EPA crap? What ‘help’?
Obama and team say, “roads’ as if ‘roads’ don't go to Detroit... as if 'roads' weren't built by those who pay taxes...
It's time to vote dems out of office before they destroy the country.
Prosperity IS shared. Prosperous people start businesses, grow businesses, and employ lots of people. They contribute to the overall economy by buying business and consumer goods. It’s called a free market economy.
Obama’s idea of sharing prosperity is the government confiscating wealth from the private sector, picking business winners and losers contingent on how much graft comes their way, and doling government money out to grow dependency, i.e. buy votes.
The 2012 elections will be Choom & Gloom v. R & R (resucitation & revival)...
When you start a job and the prior occupant of the office left a steaming bag of stink on the desk, it’s not your fault.
If it’s still there 4 years later, accompanied by a couple more such bags, it is.
Nothing is supposed to matter except some vague process of trying because progressive ideals lead straight to abyss. That's a degenerate, perverted, dazed and confused America built by someone else... Satan.
Reason for the eye exam, I thought the title read --
Obama: "A New Vision Of An America In Which Property Is Shared" (video)
He may not have actually said that, but I'm absolutely sure that is what he was thinking.
“Sharing” is a concept I’m currently have to teach a couple toddlers.
The hard part of late is emphasizing is that “sharing” is initiated by the one who has as a gesture of generosity - and _not_ initiated by the one who has-not as an act of greed.
Toddler: “He’s not sharing!”
Daddy: “He found the toy and decided to play with it first. There is just one of it, and only one person can play with it at a time. You don’t get to take it away from him just because you want it. You will wait until he is done with it.”

The "Words" sound great, but the "reality" of Obama and Chavez is quite different.
No matter what perverted form of government or economic system man tries or creates, when it collapses, capitalism will always be left standing among the ruins ..................
Problem is, Obama voters think Marxism is grand without even knowing what it is.
“Redistribute” my wealth? I’ll burn it in the fireplace before that happens. Damn socialists!
spot on... great way of describing sharing. it’s a juvenile concept/word when it comes to sharing earnings.
sharing with play... yes
Robin Hood could have called what he was doing as “sharing”..
amazing... lanqauge continues to devolve.
Actually, it is. Obama was no innocent spectator in all this. He was in the Senate and voted for all the stinking bags of crap!
“Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?” Obama asked.
Ah, sorry.. That is not a new vision. That is old failed communism........
You share prosperity by creating jobs. If the job creators aren’t prosperous..... well you know the rest. He really has no clue. Don’t think he ever took an economics class.
Indeed, the Republic is founded on the notion of guaranteeing "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness". Decide, in reasonable rational fairness (taking money by force from others isn't), what "happy" means to you and get busy pursuing it.
So yes, at best it's not his fault - years of inaction make it his. At worst he was a prime instigator, and given the greatest control made it much worse.
“Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?”
You didn’t build that, so it is my duty to share it with everyone! (After I take a cut for me and my fellow elite utopians, of course)
