Mr. Obama is a follower of Saul Alinsky, a Chicago Socialist activist. Hillary Clinton is also a great admirer of the late Saul Alinsky. Obama taught Alinsky methods in college. One might want to keep Alinsky’s words in mind when listening to the clip below, “The most basic principle of Alinsky’s advice to radicals is to lie to their opponents and disarm them by pretending to be moderates and liberals.”
Obama was asked about the enormous nanny state he is setting up by Bill O’Reilly during the interview aired Monday evening on The O’Reilly Factor. Obama denied the welfare state has grown under his administration even though the U.S. has spent $3.7 trillion on welfare in the past five years.
Welfare spending during the Obama years has been five times greater than what’s been spent on transportation, education and NASA together. Forty-seven million are on food stamps thanks to the relaxing of laws and that is only one of 15 food stamp programs. Obama has expanded unemployment benefits and tax credits (income tax welfare).
The welfare state is fraught with fraud, having lost at least $133 billion over the last decade.Congressional Budget Office projections, welfare spending will rise 80% over the next 10 years.
More than 90 million are out of the workforce.
The top 20% are buying 90% of the products with the middle class being squeezed out, thanks to the stock market and housing market.
He then said Nixon, as well as FDR and Johnson were more liberal than he is. He admires anything Big Government that came from Nixon’s Administration.
I don’t know what fantastical land he lives in but it must be a very strange place.
Mr. Obama said he is less liberal than Richard Nixon in this clip. In answer to Bill questioning him about the nanny state, he said self-reliance is well but people need opportunity which he largely defines as welfare.
He makes it all sound so innocent and he tries to make himself sound normal and ‘sensible’.
Watch this clip:
Obama tried to compare the G.I. bill with welfare which was earned by the military. Obama continuously compares earned entitlements with handouts as if they were one and the same. Handouts need to be converted back into handups but that won’t happen under Obama.
