    Obama sees 'make or break' time for middle class

    OSAWATOMIE, Kan. (AP) -- President Barack Obama delivered a sweeping indictment of economic inequality in the U.S. on Tuesday as he summoned the memory of President Theodore Roosevelt and pledged to fight for fairness at a "make or break moment for the middle class."Only a month before Republican voters begin choosing a presidential nominee, Obama traveled to small-town Osawatomie, Kan., where Roosevelt delivered his "New Nationalism" address in 1910, to embrace the progressive reformer's calls for a "square deal" for regular Americans.
    Obama warned of the unraveling of the American dream, and called for giving hurting middle-class workers a fair shake and restoring financial security - themes he's certain to return to throughout the 2012 campaign.
    News from The Associated Press n

    So, Obama's abandoned all recourse and is now 100% behind class warfare, envy and jealousy as his mission statement. How do people buy his ****? I mean seriously, "Make or break time for the middle class". Yeah, break if you side with Obama nad put your trust in bureaucrats to save you. Obama's not offering salvation, he's handing you Yoke an saying with sweet words "Put it on, it won't hurt, it's there to help you!"

    WAKE UP People, and fight back, against ANY politician that tells you "Government" is the answer. (that goes for you Newt)
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Re: Obama sees 'make or break' time for middle class

    We need to restore the American Dream by demonizing those that succeed...

    ...yes, that makes sense.

    We also need to restore the desire to reach the superbowl in our ****ty franchises by demonizing how the Steelers and Packers do business.

    There's a lot of rhetoric you can use to push more regulation on business, more taxes on business, more taxes on wealth, more hoops to jump through the more successful you are, etc....however appealing to the American Dream is ridiculous imho.

    Re: Obama sees 'make or break' time for middle class

    Wow, Obama is really starting to show his age with all that talk about the American Dream being a "square deal" for regular Americans. We officially gave up on getting a square deal decades ago, back in the '80's. To the post-Reagan generation, the only American Dream we've ever known is ****ing over the other guy, attaining cheap celebrity, and snorting blow off of hookers' tits.

    Ridiculous hyperbolic statements seem to be your forte these days. Why don't you just come out of the Pauligan closet already. Good grief.

    You could show how Obama's actually inspiring America to choose a new course! And explain to all of us what that course is and why my analogy is wrong through witty debate and solid reasoning. However, if you listen to Obama, know history and realize what TDR was all about, well... I guess I can see why all you can do is attack me for hyperbole. ta ta hun, thanks for making this one easy on me.

    I see a vague indictment of vague statements.

    I vaguely disregard the whole affair. Let me know when we get to specifics.
    I may be wrong.
