Obama: "A New Vision Of An America In Which Prosperity Is Shared" (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | August 13, 2012 | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 08/13/2012 7:53:14 AM PDT by i88schwartz

"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."

"Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?"

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......

...you can make it here if you try

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.

Under Obama’s direction there is no prosperity to share - merely universal misery.

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.

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.

"Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?" Obama asked.

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.

Prosperity has always been shared in America, zer0. Just not in the statist marxist fashion you advocate. Prosperity is available to all who want it and work for it.

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 doesn't mind taking from those who earn because he stands philosophically with looters ...

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.

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.

Oh dear, I really need to get my eyes checked. I was just so sure he had finally come out of the Marxist socialist closet.

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.”

Prosperity IS shared.

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.

I find arguments are more easily won when the opponent's premise is taken at face value and followed to its natural conclusion. Makes it easier to forestall distractions when every "but what about..." can only lead to an even more embarrassing outcome.

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.
