    • Obama's Class Warfare: Don't Get Fooled Again - Chuck Norris - Page full
      Have you noticed how the Obama campaign has stepped up its class warfare rhetoric as we draw closer to Election Day? President Barack Obama constantly resorts to this tactic because he's simply unable to defend his own record in office, as 23 million Americans are out of work or underemployed and the economy remains in distress.Class warfare is all he has left.
    • Full text of Barack Obama's speech in Osawatomie, Kansas | World news | theguardian.com
      Look at the statistics. In the last few decades, the average income of the top 1% has gone up by more than 25% to $1.2m per year. I'm not talking about millionaires, people who have a million dollars. I'm saying people who make a million dollars every single year. For the top one hundredth of 1%, the average income is now $27m per year. The typical CEO who used to earn about 30 times more than his or her worker now earns 110 times more. And yet, over the last decade the incomes of most Americans have actually fallen by about 6%.
    • Morning Examiner: Obama pivots to class warfare | WashingtonExaminer.com
      Hence today’s announcement, leaked to The New York Times, that Obama “is changing the subject to tax fairness” by calling for tax hikes on all Americans who make more than $250,000 a year. According to the Times, Obama “hopes to deepen the contrast with his challenger, Mitt Romney. On Friday, the president said Mr. Romney would ‘give $5 trillion of new tax cuts on top of the Bush tax cuts, most of them going to the wealthiest Americans.’”
      Class warfare it is then.
    • Obama’s Speech: Class Warfare and Hope is not a Plan | RedState


    Obama's recurring 'bail out' tactic, whenever the news is bad about his administration, is to pivot to a class ware fare and class envy strategy, to get the complicit Biased Lame Stream Media (BLSM) to cover that, instead of the bad news about his administration.

    Please. Even you have to be able to see this.

    How so? How so am I facutally wrong that the present president and administration haven't used class warfare and class envy topics to generate outrage among their extremist base, in support of their agenda?

    Okay, I'll pull from Obama's actual words and not Chuck Norris' opinion or anyone else's for that matter, since I will make my own using evidence. My question is what is wrong with Obama speaking the truth? I understand truth hurts, but this is a problem. Is it better to put blinders on?

    Not liking this 'Hope and Change' of his, and why should I? It is fundamentally making things worse, allot worse. Not better. C'mon, guys, this is the truth. How many 'Summers of Recovery' have we had? 3? 4? And the economy just keeps sliding, as would the stock market if it weren't on the Fed's monthly steroid injections.

    Republicans claiming to 'get rid of big government' have not nearly done as much damage to the nation as this president and his excessively liberal / progressive agenda coupled with his fundamental lack of leadership and even a simplistic understanding of economics and markets.
    REALLY?????

    "The unstoppable American economy is stopped cold in its tracks"...which is very true IF you completely ignore the fact that our economy was in free fall, losing 800K jobs per month when Obama took over, but last year the Dow hit record highs FIFTY times!

    "Our GDP is in quicksand."...which is very true IF you completely ignore the provable facts and hard numbers:

    "The great American jobs juggernaut is in reverse."...which is very true IF you ignore the provable facts and hard numbers:
    DPCCPrivateSectorPayroll11014.jpg

    "We have chronic unemployment."...never mind that the Republican-controlled House refuses to even take a vote on jobs bill submitted by the Obama administration...and any GOP jobs bills consist almost solely of tax cuts.

    "The lowest work force participation rate in 35 years."...see the above.

    "Massive deficit and debt."...never mind that Obama's cut the deficit in more than half since he took office - note the crap sandwich that the Bush administration had left him:

    That is pure rancid bologna...Reid nuked the filibuster so that Obama could pack the DC circuit court, the court that is responsible for the 1st line in any challenge to what this criminal is doing in office....But that you are totally fine with the nuclear option in the Senate, when during Bush demo's like Reid were screaming to the heavens how it would be unAmerican to do that speaks volumes.

    Yes. Talking about an issue isn't class warfare.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
