President Obama laid out his election strategy last night in a speech at the Portland Museum of Art in Maine. That being the argument that it wasn’t the American people and their hard work, their creativity, their bravery that made America great. No, it was the government.
They’ve got one message and that is, we’re going to make sure that we cut people’s taxes even more – so that by every objective measure our deficit is worse and we will slash government investments that have made this country great, not because it’s going to balance the budget, but because it’s driven by our ideological vision about how government should be. That’s their agenda, pure and simple.
…We won’t win the race for new jobs and new businesses and middle-class security if we cling to this same old, worn-out, tired `you’re on your own’ economics that the other side is peddling. It was tried in the decades before the Great Depression. It didn’t work then. It was tried in the last decade. It didn’t work. You know, the idea you would keep on doing the same thing over and over again, even though it’s been proven not to work. That’s a sign of madness.”
Yup, the “you’re on your own” philosophy didn’t help to create a world superpower or one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world. Nope…NOW we’re a great country because Obama came in and instituted every kind of socialism possible.
