    Obama Still Trying To Make Us “The Other”

    Obama Still Trying To Make Us “The Other”

    Obama just can’t fathom why people oppose his policies.  They can’t be thinking people.  They must be stupid and scared:

    “Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we’re hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared,” Obama told the assembled Democrats, who paid $15,200 a person to attend. “And the country is scared.”

    To “break through the fear and the frustration that people are feeling right now,” Obama told the crowd, will require high-end donors not just to “write checks” but also to “lift up people’s spirits and make sure that they’re not reacting just to fear.”

    This recalls Obama’s famous April 2008 speech at a cocktail party fundraiser in San Francisco about how people in small towns in Pennsylavia cling to their guns and religion:

    “You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them,” Obama said. “And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

    A favorite meme on the left is that people falsely portray Obama as “the other,” someone who is not like us, with the spin that his otherness is based on his race and/or religion.

    But the fact is that Obama repeatedly denigrates and insults people who disagree with him as being motivated by fear and irrationality.  It is Obama who repeatedly attempts to portray the people of this country as “the other.”

    "Good argument bound to convince even the most reasonable and knowledgeable of people."

    "The most reasonable and knowledgeable of people" have already come to the same conclusion – you're a moron.

    "The Making Work Pay Credit reduced the 2009 tax liability by 6.2 percent of earnings, up to a maximum reduction of $400 for singles or $800 for couples. The size of the credit was gradually reduced as incomes rise between $75,000 and $95,000 on single returns, and between $170,000 and $190,000 on joint returns.

    95% of working Americans received a tax cut."

    You can repeat the meme as much as you want, chump, and it's still a lie. I'm about as "working American" as you can find, there's nothing "5%" special about me, and I never received a tax cut.

    That you're parroting B. HUSSEIN!!! Obambi makes you both out to be liars.
