MITT HAMMERS OBAMA OVER SHOCKING TAPE! “He Wants Redistribution – I Disagree!” (Video)
Gateway Pundit ^ | 9-18-2012 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 09/18/2012 1:50:11 PM PDT by servo1969

That was quick… Less than an hour ago Drudge posted video of Barack Obama telling an audience in 1998 that he believes in redistribution of wealth. Mitt Romney was just on Your World with Cavuto and hammered the president over this shocking admission. “He wants redistribution of wealth. I disagree.”

(video)

Mitt Romney on Barack Obama:

“Frankly we have two very different views about America. The president’s view is one of a larger government. There’s a tape that just came out today where the president is saying he likes redistribution. I disagree. I think a society based upon a government-centered nation where government plays a larger and larger role, redistributes money, that’s the wrong course for America. That will not build a strong America or help people out of poverty. I believe the right course for America is one where government steps in to help those who are in need. We’re a compassionate people. But then we let people build their own lives… We believe in free people and free enterprises.”

Touché.

" Quit calling it WEALTH! It is not just WEALTH that obastard wants to redistribute it is ALL EARNINGS AND PROPERTY.

People need to understand this. NOBODY who owns or earns is excluded from the redistribution scheme except for the ruling class elites like obastard. "


No, Romney needs to call it what it is.... Stealing.

Redistribution of wealth is ? i.e. stealing from the producers to give to the slothful under force or coercion.

Not a single sign around here for either the Undocumented Coffee Server nor HillaryRomney. And we hardly watch tee vee.

So another attempt for a sticky, goes the way of the boy who cried wolf, until finally no one will be paying attention.

And as far as “re-distribution”, the sameother side just replies re-distribution by HillaryRomney into the bank and insurance company coffer extortion racket.

mitts biggest problem was his squishy base that didn't like him to start with i’ve seen alot of posts here in the last 2 days that go something like “I was going to hold my nose and vote for mitt but now i’m going to be enthusiastic about it” he drew the base in and the best part is it didn't cost him anything

Perhaps Mitt should point out that it is the height of hypocrisy for a man with a million dollar house in one city, who is looking for a multimillion dollar property in another, to engage in class warfare since he is clearly of the Rich variety.

He should also point out that at Obama’s level of wealth it does not really matter if (Mitt) makes more. Obama can buy anything he likes. But his most ardent supporters cannot.

Yes, that is true, but at least it in some way keeps the media trying to spoon feed the sheeple of the same old lie that this administration, opps, I meant, regime wants the people to believe that is causing the mess in the middle east that it was a spontaneous reaction to the so called Innocents of Islam film.

Romney needs to explain the difference between those who don't want to work, and those who can't work.

The elderly ? yes, there needs to be a safety net for them, so too for the handicapped ( is that politically correct to say that any more ? ).

Romney needs to make the stark contrast between the people who are willing to work, but, can't, and those who are able to work, but, won't.

We had some electrical work done by a friend who makes a living doing handyman jobs for women living alone, the elderly and people who can do it but now would rather pay someone. When he was leaving he said “I will put up with a lot of things I may not agree with, but don’t take my hard-earned money and give it to someone who is too lazy to go out and earn it”. I might add this gentleman and his wife are very generous financial conributors to the less fortunate and exceptional at personally pitching in to help. I think most people who work at an honest job will help the less fortunate as much as they can but also resent having their mony stolen from them to redistribute as the (current) Government sees fit!

“Conspiracy theories?”

Less a theory, more of a hunch. There was nothing in those videos that was particularly embarassing to willard. If anything, they helped with his base. The only folks who would think they’re damning are those who weren’t going to vote for him on a bet anyway.

So, just for fun, let’s assume that team willard is the source. They want to plant some vids that will get aired that puts willard on the “defensive” and gives him the opportunity to show he actually can man-up, and will score some needed points with the base. What better way than to hand them over to someone who you know is associated with mother jones? The best way to publicize something is of course to say that SHHHH! it’s a SECRET!

So, some useful idiot gets the vids and, predictably, goes running to his associates at mother jones. Mother jones, being the leftist rag that it is doesn’t even bother to do the level of vetting that pmsnbc would do, and runs with THEIR EXCLUSIVE!! Never really thinking that they were just played.

So, everyone is happy. Team willard gets their free publicity, willard is well prepared for their release, the useful idiot gets his head patted, mother jones gets their exclusive, and chrissy mathews gets all tingly. And ultimately I think willard gets a 1 or 2 point bump.

But like I say, it’s just a hunch. And since I won’t be climbing on the willard wagon anytime soon, you should immediately discount anything I have to say. ;-)

" Obama’s level of wealth it does not really matter if (Mitt) makes more. Obama can buy anything he likes. But his most ardent supporters cannot. "


Actually ?

Romney and his people need to point out that ?

That's their standard, or the way the things go in the hierarchy of the Democratic Communist Party of the USA.
Their elite have all the wealth and their voters are poor folk.

Think about it, that's how it is with them.
The top elite have all the wealth even more so than even some wealthy Republicans.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat you say ?

Bill Gates is a Republican ? no way.

And if ?
They go about saying, well , well, well, the Republicans have poo ( poor ) folk too !

Really ?

How about it Democrats ?
Liberals ?
MSM ?

We always thought that you thought that the Republican party was for the rich only ?


What party really has all the wealth ?

Democrat Party ?

Or ? is it those wealthy mean Republicans who want to hold onto all their money.

Hey ? Bill Gates is one of the most top wealthy person's in the world.... what about Oprah ?

Yep, but we should have found it sooner. It may have swung the election

First, "The coal story was first made public by Newsbusters on November 2, 2008, and reported immediately on FR." I remember that.

If it wasn't made public until 11/2/08, how were "WE" supposed to find it earlier? With spies inside the SF Chronicle?

Second, we knew all kinds of negative things about obama long before the election and NONE of that made any difference in the outcome. Black people were hypnotized by him and touchy-feely white people wanted to get the 'black president' thing done so they didn't have to feel guilty any more.

"Killing coal" would have been a drop in the bucket back then. Now, with things even worse, people are starting to realize what they got with their obama vote. Now all those little hints from the past are starting to make sense to people who weren't listening.

Thank you. I thought that might be your angle. I hope converting that squishy base is enough to do the job.

We’re a compassionate people. But then we let people build their own lives… We believe in free people and free enterprises.”

VIDEO TRANSCRIPTION OF "OBAMA LIKING REDISTRIBUTION":

Let me just close by saying as we think about the policy research uh surrounding the issues that I just named, uh policy research for the working poor properly defined, I think that what we're going to have to do is somehow resucsicate the notion that government action can be effective at all.

There has been a systematic, uh, I don't think it's too strong to call it a propaganda campaign, uh against the possibility of government action and its efficacy. And I think some of it has been deserved. Chicago Housing Authority has not been a model of good policy making. Uh, and neither, necessarily, have been the Chicago public schools.

Uh, what that means then is that as we try to resuscitate this notion that uh we're all in this thing together -- leave nobody behind -- uh we do have to be innovative in thinking how...what are the delivery systems that are actually effective and meet people where they live, uh and my suggestion, I guess, would be that the trick -- and this is one of the few areas where I think there are technical issues that have to be dealt with as opposed to just political issues, I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and, hence, facilitate some redistribution, because i actually believe in redistribution, uh at least at a certain level to make sure that...everybody's got a shot.

Absolutely right. I know too many who are gaming the system when there is nothing wrong with them. I despise them.

I also know many who, through no fault of their own, are not able to find a job and others, a job that pays a sustainable wage.

There are distinctions.

Ain’t it sad, there seems to be no one out there with the cajones dig up real dirt on Obama, but what’s even sadder, that dirt has to be hidden from the American people else, the 47% would drop to 46%...

What if the number of those who really know is in the single digits, and they're either extremely loyal to the cause, or have the constant threat of families being killed to stay quiet?

Not giving credit to a liberal for logic, because they don't believe in it, but the best way to keep people from knowing something is to tell noone, or if there are multiple people involved in something, make sure they don't talk.
