Tax cuts didn't lead to massive deficits, it actually brought in more revenue for expenses. It is the 2006 midterm election that turned over the Congress to Democrat majorities that did the spending that caused the major escalation in the deficit.

And slow job growth? What could possibly impede any business wanting to grow? Could it be managing expenses? Expenses like taxes and complying with government regulation.

He doesn't even understand the problem. The media doesn't want to present facts that make reality difficult for Obama. And now Democrat supporters can get exited over this nonsense economics this week. If the implications weren't so serious I'd have a good laugh at some of the locals as they express their anticipation excitement...

"Now, it’s a simple theory," said Obama. "And we have to admit, it’s one that speaks to our rugged individualism and our healthy skepticism of too much government. That’s in America’s DNA. And that theory fits well on a bumper sticker. But here’s the problem: It doesn’t work. It has never worked.

"It didn’t work when it was tried in the decade before the Great Depression," said Obama. "It’s not what led to the incredible postwar booms of the ‘50s and ‘60s. And it didn’t work when we tried it during the last decade. I mean, understand, it’s not as if we haven’t tried this theory.

If I was running for President and I wanted to lose big time, I would say this EXACT same thing Obama spouted! I am almost convinced he doesn't want to win. Remember, he had to run a little center right to win in '08. Now he's spouting full fledged communist/socialist crap and he expects everyone's going to love this?

Obama either wants to lose, or he's such an arrogant narcissist he thinks he can even out do Satan himself!

Usually, Democrats don’t say this stuff out loud. I don’t think this is going to play well with independents.

A whole lot of Americans, way too many, find President Obama’s arguments compelling. It’s the old security versus liberty meme. Too many Americans want government to protect them from life’s risks, but what is Obama really offering? He’s offering to share the pie evenly, but what he doesn’t say is it’s going to be an ever shrinking pie. It’s not like this hasn’t been tried in the past. It has, and it failed miserably. The only ones who truly prospered under such a system were the leaders, and even they had far less than they might have had in a free market system.

Yes. President Obama offers what he can’t really deliver. Nonetheless, people on the dole don’t really care about liberty. All they want to know is who is going to deliver the freebies.

Is there now ANY doubt among you Democrats and “Independents” this punk is not a “Socialist” at the minimum?

That one speech is FILLED with fodder for the Republicans.

If the Republicans can’t capitalize on that, they don’t deserve to win this election.

IT’S THE ECONOMY, STUPID!!!!

Don’t chase shiny objects [things the Dems/Lib Media toss out there to distract from the real issues: joblessness, the economy, inflation].

I am just incredibly sad to read this.

What makes me even sadder though, is that there is a very real chance that we are about to send an avowed Marxist back to the White House for a second term.

Our country is completely gone.

He said this last Tuesday and we’re JUST NOW hearing about it? Has this been reported anywhere other than CNS? I haven’t seen this on FoxNews, American Thinker, Spectator or anywhere else for that matter. This crap needs to be shouted from the highest heavens.

Obama argued that while a limited government that preserves free markets "speaks to our rugged individualism" as Americans, such a system "doesn't work" and "has never worked" and that Americans must look to a more activist government that taxes more, spends more and regulates more if they want to preserve the middle class

This is why I would have loved to see Gingrich debate 0bama. This is the whole point of this election. Capitalism vs Socialism. 0bama does not believe in capitalism.

Romney/Ryan need to hammer this non-stop.

Is not an equally important question that of why Obammy chose the venue, and the location?

Look under the rug at this rascal.

See he’s gone full commie in public. Not even remotely trying to hiding it anymore.

No doubt in my mind, he was SENT to destroy.

He is a sociopath through and through. His glibness is sickening.

Blacks are going to vote for Obama regardless. But every time I see these white people behind Obama, nodding at his utterances and smiling beatifically as if they’re having a religious experience, I wonder what kind of mental illness has hold of them. I cannot understand it.
