Obama's New Attack on Those Who Don't Want Higher Taxes: ‘Selfishness’

Obama's New Attack on Those Who Don't Want Higher Taxes: ‘Selfishness’

abc news

On the stump this week, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., has pushed back against Sen. John McCain's description of his tax policies.

"The reason that we want to do this, change our tax code, is not because I have anything against the rich," Obama said in Sarasota, Fla., yesterday. "I love rich people! I want all of you to be rich. Go for it. That’s the American dream, that’s the American way, that’s terrific.
"The point is, though, that -- and it’s not just charity, it’s not just that I want to help the middle class and working people who are trying to get in the middle class -- it’s that when we actually make sure that everybody’s got a shot – when young people can all go to college, when everybody’s got decent health care, when everybody’s got a little more money at the end of the month – then guess what? Everybody starts spending that money, they decide maybe I can afford a new car, maybe I can afford a computer for my child. They can buy the products and services that businesses are selling and everybody is better off. All boats rise. That’s what happened in the 1990s, that’s what we need to restore. And that’s what I’m gonna do as president of the United States of America.

"John McCain and Sarah Palin they call this socialistic," Obama continued. "You know I don’t know when, when they decided they wanted to make a virtue out of selfishness."


Wild Thing's comment.........

He won't produce his birth certificate, he cries and whines when anyone asks him tuff questions. He can't handle any kind of person or comment that disagrees with him so much that he has not only one webpage for what he calls attacks, but also another page for his followers to turn people in that say or do things from McCain/Palin campaign that make phone calls or send out mailers telling the truth about Obama.

He has never served in our military and made any kind of sacrifices like all of those who serve in our military do.

His relatives keep popping up in places that show all of us Obama could care less about any of them except for his terrorist cousin he flew to see and help with his campaign on our tax dollars.

AND HE CALLS John AND Sarah SELFISH????? Or anyone that does not like his plan and disagree with him.

HERE is what UNselfish is Barack Hussein Obama!!

Selfishness is demanding that we do something for him and him not giving back.
So I want to keep my own money. It's not like it's just going in my pocket. It pays the mortgage, groceries, ethanol for the van (yep, I have a flex fuel, but didn't know it until the first time I filled up and it was on the inside of gas door.), clothes for the kids, emergencies, utility bills, dr bills. I have nothing left for me except once in a great while we'll go to lunch and a movie on a Sunday afternoon or go eat out at a fast food restaurant or get Little Cesar's pizza to take home. I'm not selfish. No one in my family is. I think Barackoli Obamanation is. He's a spoiled, selfish brat.

See the brother and his Aunt, Auntie Emma, that is the change he is talking about. That will be all of us in 4 years, welcome to the third world.

I can't stand to listen to this commie talk. He praises himself a lot. I have a hunch he never shared his pb&j sandwiches but probably told others they should.

51% of the Obama's live amongst us, the remaining 49% have a hard time with their comprehension skills and only 1 in 7 have any firm beliefs. They all fall in line when some pied piper of the great Socialist give away blows smoke up their ass. When was the last time a John Kerry, Ted Kennedy or Nancy Pelosi, all $$Millionaires, turned down their $165,200 Senate pay for the common good of the Nation? If these wealthy lawmakers cared about the economy they would set the example like Lee Iacoca and cut their salaries to the minimum legal $1 like he did under Jimmy Carter to get Chrysler back on it's feet. Congress is solely responsible for the economic debacle through their greed and kickbacks, putting the blame on their partners in crime, but the wealthy hypocrites are unwilling to make personal sacrifices yet they want you and I to cinch up our belts and bend over and grab those ankles!!!

It seems like Obama's self-proclaimed selfless sharing of toys and pb&j sandwich didn't carry forward when he became rich (earned over $250K). His voluntary giving to charities at that time exhibited "selfishness" according to the Obama of today. It was only when he started running for higher public office that this showman and big government con artist increased his charitable giving. What a hypocrite and lying bastard!

"Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and his wife Michelle gave $10,772 of the $1.2 million they earned from 2000 through 2004 to charities, or less than 1 percent, according to tax returns for those years released today by his campaign."

Why is it, when any race comes to this country within a generation they have their own home, usually own their own business and are doing quite well and realizing the American Dream.

Their attitude is one of gratefulness just to have the chance for a better way of life for their family. I and probably everyone else here know of at least one Vietnamese couple or single who came here in the 70's and their children all speak perfect english, no accent the parents are proud and they did it all by themselves, no handouts from the government.

Now suddenly, the American Dream is now an entitlement, according to obama and his people who have been on welfare generation after generation suddenly are entitled to the same benefits these other immigrants have worked their asses of to acquire. Did obama ever think how the people who have something got it. It wasn't paid for by some unknown benefactor like his education. These people actually worked for it and damn hard.

I will tell you this right now, he won't win with this kind of attitude or wealth distribution. The American people won't stand for it.(period)

Lynn, yes your so right, Obama and his wife are the ones I see as selfish. I never posted it but way back they had the income tax stuff and Obama and wife shocked the media even with how little they donated when they are financially able to. Their selfishness shows up in many ways.

Mark, nooooooooooo big waaaaa from me.
I know it is going to be horrible.

Vote vote vote!!!!

Posted by: Wild Thing at November 1, 2008 07:05 PM

Tom, I am the same way, I get sick to my stomach when I hear him. I listen to the videos I put on here first to make sure I want to post them and then I feel sick.haha It happenes every single time.

I agree too about his sandwich, he made a big deal about it and they even said on FOX today they doubt he did that. LOL
How stupid to even say that, I think for most of us as kids we did food trade with our packed lunches. I know I did, my apple for their orange stuff like that too.

Jack your so right and they keep giving themselves pay raises too. Undesered pay raises. sheesh

Les, DITTO....."What a hypocrite and lying bastard!"

Thank you so much for posting about his tax returns. Very telling and I had read about it and never saved the information. Thank you.

Posted by: Wild Thing at November 1, 2008 07:15 PM

Mark, excellent point and so very true. There can be no pride in doing well with the way Obama plans on things. It will destory the human spirit and our country.

I agree too I really think there are masses out there, not polled, people that love America, and will vote to keep this horrible person Obama from a office.
