*The bear is loose and back on the permanent campaign trail to show “the folks” how hard he’s fighting for middle class families™
Speaking to a crowd in Minnesota, Thursday, Obama lamely decried “fabricated issues and phony scandals.”
“It’s all geared towards the next election or ginning up a base,” Obama muttered derisively. “Um…..it’s not on the level.”
It was a pathetic and unconvincing performance. What next? *”I am not a crook?”
A new Fox News Poll shows that 76% of Voters Think the IRS Emails Were Deliberately Destroyed. In other words, they think it’s his administration that’s not being “on the level.”
Obama brought up a Minnesota mother whose letter to the White House he used in his ongoing push to raise the minimum wage, but failed to explain how raising the minimum wage would help the accountant struggling in a stagnant, overly regulated economy.
No matter — this is why he ran, you guys – so he could help folks like this mom who reminds him of his own mom – and his g-ma, too – and he and Michelle 20 years ago. Obama reeked of insincerity as he tried to convince his credulous audience that he could relate to middle America.
The truth? The truth is not so nice. Obama is a student of Saul Alinsky who understands that America’s white middle class is where the power lies. He not trying to help the middle class. He’s trying to destroy it. Which should be obvious, by now.
Mr. Obama has very clearly embodied Alinsky’s epiphany about the middle class. He has been pushing all the buttons of fear, division and partisanship on the one hand, and government benefits and promises of jobs on the other. The very last thing Obama wants, however, is a rising economy and people working. A good economy and jobs deflates the revolutionary possibilities. Every regulation, tax and Obama decree is geared to destroying the middle class. When people are living hand-to-mouth or living on benefits and having to jump through myriad regulatory hoops, they are unable to unite and fight the coming authoritarianism.
That is why it is so galling to watch this guy cozy up to the middle class every election season. The very people he wants to murder, open the door and hand him the gun. It’s really quite nauseating.
* Obama keeps pushing this meme he apparently thinks has a high cool quotient: “The bear is loose!” he’s been saying for the past couple of weeks as he leaves the White House. And his fan bois in the press swoon in appreciation. “Obama said “the bear is loose, omg, isn’t that witty?!”
* It’s not my intention to defame President Nixon by comparing him to Obama. I’m just noting that Barry’s sounding comically defensive, these days.
