“I don’t know any plumbers making $250k a year.”
“What’s that, Joe, you’ve tried the kool-aid and you don’t think it tastes good? Well, screw you, Joe! We don’t need your vote, anyway.”
I find it interesting that when Obama and the folks that claim to represent “Joe Public” were confronted and exposed by a real everyday Joe asking a real everyday question, when they couldn’t meet Joe’s need or answer Joe’s problem, they just turned on Joe.
I guess they only represent the Joe who doesn’t ask any questions…or the Joe who will simply swallow whatever answer he’s given, and Obama has definitely identified that group.
It’s unsettling to me, though not really surprising, that Obama is capable of simply dismissing and disparaging a common voter who, though he fits the demographic of those whom Obama courts, still finds cause to question Obama’s plans.
After demonstrating an obvious and unquestionable hole in Obama’s socialist agenda, Obama practiced his usual sleight-of-hand and dismissed his own failings by pointing out that Joe is not a licensed plumber. Americans are told to ignore the truth of Obama’s answer and what that means for America, because Joe isn’t actually a licensed plumber.
So, once again Obama is exposed as an unsuitable candidate for President, and once again he waves his hand over the ignorant masses, makes a few affirming populist statements, and convinces them that “these aren’t the droids you’re looking for….move along.”
While Obama definitely seems to have sway over the average undiscerning person, one thing is clear:
Obama does not know Joe…and he doesn’t really want to.

The young men in the video repeatedly recite, “because of Obama.”
Are they saying that before Obama, they had no skills or intelligence, no desire or ambition, no drive or motivation, and no resources or opportunities?
Yes, that’s exactly what they’re saying.
It isn’t remotely true, but that’s the kind of thinking that helps keep the Democrats in power over black America: You can’t do anything yourself, because they (e.g. Republicans, whites) are going to hold you down; only with our help will you succeed.
It’s an insidious message that keeps black Americans from recognizing their own potential and makes them beholden to the Democratic Party to such a degree that while they are absolved of owning their failures, they are inhibited from owning their successes.
The same tactic is evident in Obama’s Presidential campaign; he enjoys political success due to America’s racial unity, yet claims America’s racial unity is due to his political success. Obama asserts that only his election to the Presidency will prove or demonstrate America’s racial unity, obligating Americans to elect him or forfeit decades of racial progress.
So, just as America can accurately state, “because of Democrats” America is continuously chained to a racial past that has no rational application in our day and only prevents us from recognizing and capitalizing on decades of racial progress,…
…the young men in the video could just as accurately state, “because of Obama” black children are unable to accomplish anything or think for themselves unless someone of their own race does it first, depriving black youth of the ability to identify with their peers and achieve equal success even in their own eyes.
What happens when Obama doesn’t win the White House?
The fire, dependent on Obama, will go out, and just as an external force was attributed the credit for success, an external force will be attributed blame for the lack of action.
In reality, Obama is just another politician America deems unqualified for the job, and the young men in the video are just young kids witheld from their own culture, ripe with role models of different skin color than their own.

Maryland Democratic Representative and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and his political colleagues were right about one thing, America is in trouble.
Today, marked the day that Congress chose a way ahead in full awareness that it was not what “We the People” wanted.
Today, our elected officials, on whom the Supreme Court ruled we cannot impose term limits, took action in complete contradiction of the majority, “We the People,” and imposed a bill on us.
“We the People” spoke, and they did not listen. “We the People” raised our voice and they ignored us. Next, “We the People” will vote, and our vote will be overturned…wait, been there, done that.
Entitlement politics got us here, and now those same politicians (i.e. Massachusetts Democratic Representative and chairman of the House Financial Services Committee Barney Frank) want credit for the proposed solution for the mess they made…$700 billion in credit to put it plainly.
Excessive credit debt is the issue; people borrowed too much and aren’t repaying it. To make matters worse, our politicians, who allegedly understand something that we do not, decided the solution was $700 billion of additional credit.
Why didn’t “We the People” think of that?
I guess the politicians were right about that, too; “We the People” just don’t understand.
Democracy is dead.
“We the People…”
…are most definitely in trouble.
(I am ashamed that President Bush and Senator McCain were apart of this, and I find myself genuinely desiring another viable candidate for whom I could cast my vote.)
