Obama: Unlike some people, I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth

posted at 6:36 pm on April 18, 2012 by Allahpundit

Maybe this explains why he used to eat dogs. Eating horses was reserved for rich kids.

If this campaign ends up being as nasty as everyone expects, by September he’ll be referring to Romney as “Moneybags.” For the record:

Romney is sensitive to perceptions that he grew up wealthy, so Obama’s “silver spoon” remark could strike a nerve. On the campaign trail, the former Massachusetts governor sometimes talks about his father, George, growing up poor and driving across the American West looking for work. When Mitt was born, the family was middle class, moving from Detroit to the tony suburb of Bloomfield Hills only after Mitt was a teenager, when his father took over American Motors. Although Mitt’s parents helped fund his college and graduate education, and helped him and his wife, Anne, buy their first home, he did not inherit his parents’ wealth; he amassed a multimillion-dollar fortune on his own, working at Bain Capital.

Says Joel Gehrke at the Examiner, “The president, calling as he was for increased government investment in student aid, seemed to be implying that receiving an education paid for by family is less legitimate than receiving it due to government support.” Eh, I think this is just basic Buffett Rule share-the-wealth rhetoric even though the Buffett Rule won’t pay for much of anything, let alone college educations for the middle class. And of course the silver spoon point is a veiled dig at Romney, part of the kitchen-sink effort to make him as personally unappealing to voters as possible. Romney’s already working on a counter to that:

Mitt Romney appeared today to acknowledge a recent poll that found President Obama more likeable by warning a crowd in North Carolina that “even if we like” the president, Americans “can’t afford” his policies.

Romney’s nod to the issue of likeability came during a speech billed as a “prebuttal” to Obama’s speech that will be delivered at the Democratic National Convention later this fall.

“Even if you like Barack Obama, we can’t afford Barack Obama,” said Romney. “It’s time to get someone that will get this economy going and put the American people back to work with good jobs and rising income.”

Righties won’t like the idea of him conceding O’s likability, but my hunch is that realistically there’s not much you can do to an incumbent on this point. Romney will attack, of course — a guy who won the nomination via negative ads isn’t about to abandon them now — but he’s apt to stick to policy critiques rather than character assaults a la the left’s dumb obsession with Seamus the dog. What could he say at this point about Obama as a person to dramatically shift the public’s perception of a president they’ve lived with every day for more than three years? Unless Mitt’s oppo team digs something up, O’s favorables are more or less priced in and will shift only if major policy developments, like a tanking economy, give them a push. See Nate Silver’s latest piece for more on that. Favorability is a good indicator of the likelihood of winning an election — but more so later in the race than earlier. Mitt’s got time before the public makes a more or less final judgment on him but Democrats will be pushing against him all the way.

And where do jobs come from? The bottom? When did anyone get a job from a poor or unemployed person?

I’ve got a feeling that from now to November, every time Obama mentions anything to do with food, eating, silverware, dogs, or weird religious beliefs, hilarity will ensue. To think this little gem was hiding in his book all this time. Bless you Jim Treacher.

LASue on April 18, 2012 at 7:01 PM

Yes, I agree with you there, LASue; my earlier comment was that Obama is just ruuude, entirely ruuude — to EVERYone. It’s ruuude of an indecent, cryptic sort to deny his life-facts to the people in this nation who both pay his way and are subjected to his indecency and rudeness.

He’s evasive about “who” paid for his education (“somebody gave” it to him) because he won’t tell the truth to people whose very lives he mucks up. Grandma was a ‘typical White person’ and not an individual who provided for him (among other things) who had a name but was reduced to race and ridicule by Obama…

he’s a downright ruuude, crude and indecent person. Just ruude of grotesque proportions.

To be honest you remind me of a poster here months ago who I believe was called sonofsam, he/she was allegedly a right winger until it became clear it was a lefty doing a caricature of what they believe to be conservative. As a matter of fact I think you might be sonofsam.

Hasn’t ObaMao claimed to be concerned about the middle class? Doesn’t he claim to want to “save” the middle class? Why does he demonize Romney, the product of a middle class household? Oh, that’s right, ObaMao hopes that a pathetic class warfare argument will fire up the clueless losers who make up his base.

Mitt Romney just like McCain loves Obama hates Conservatives

In a raucous speech, Mr. Nugent told audience members that “if Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” He added that if they could not “clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I don’t even know what you’re made out of.”

Barack Obama:

called on Mr. Romney to “condemn Nugent’s violent and hateful rhetoric immediately,”

Cowardly Mitt obliged Obama

“Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from,” said a spokeswoman, Andrea Saul. “Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil.”

As I have been saying 100% Obama wins.

Now I will add.

Mitt is doing every thing in his power to fool us and elect Obama.

He will select a Progressive for his VP someone like Condi.

This is so much fun. Another wonderful thread with hilarious comments. On a semi-serious note I can only add that Obama eats pizza on silver plates bought with other people’s money. Perhaps this should be a taxpayer funded “right”?:

When asked what she planned to serve, she said, laughing: “Pizza! But, we’ll be serving it on sterling silver plates!”

The event isn’t tied to Little Caesars headquarters in any way, nor does it mean the family is endorsing the president. It’s strictly a private affair.

And the price of admission isn’t for those on a budget. $40,000 buys access to the cocktail reception, formal photo with Obama and dinner. $10,000 buys dinner and a photo.

So yeah, bring it on BO! And don’t forget to remind us how your dog rides in style in the taxpayer-funded Prez limo just like the 99% you are desperately trying to reach.

IDK, seems like something more than dropping a mask. I thought at first he was putting us on, but it’s gone on too long and he seems to be slipping deeper and deeper into some kind of dark place. Something’s not right.

He is and always was a lib-troll. He had a lot of folks here at HA (me included) fooled. That’s all.

I think being born without a father who loved him enough to stick around was his real disadvantage. It’s not his fault, and I feel for the guy. Major Daddy issues.

Only hatred I see here is hatred for a black president.

Angryed has been doing this all day. Don’t know what has got into him/her.

Yes, and I hope I helped in some small way. It was discusting.

Rusty Allen on April 18, 2012 at 7:38 PM

You did. The folks that were here the last couple of days saw it firsthand. Unreal meltdown.

Just for the record, I was born dirt poor and would have been more than happy to accept a “silver spoon” if it was offered. Why does Obama have this rabid hate for successful people?

rplat on April 18, 2012 at 7:01 PM

he’s a faux ‘born poor’, his white grandma who brought him up and whom he later on threw under the bus, was the VP of the Bank of Hawaii, do you call this growing up poor, seriously?? this man is a pathetic fraud…his rabid hate for successful people has nothing to do with his ‘having been born poor’, he’s never been poor…it all has to do with his marxist ideology, and btw, Marx came from a very well off German family but that didn’t stop him from writing Das Kapital…

And I’ll get back on topic now – sorry.

VegasRick on April 18, 2012 at 7:47 PM

… But I have to believe that the further he travels down this road for all to see, a majority of American people will have had enough.

What a douchebag this guy is. Even if the silver spoon thing were true, so what? It’s pathetic to resort to class envy and resentment just to disguise your own lousy record.

changer1701 on April 18, 2012 at 7:48 PM

Come on brave one just another step or two. You can do it! I’ll show you that door you’ve been flirting with. Where is your bravery? Still nothing at Eds thread.

I know lots of folks whose fathers walked out on their families. None of them have done as much to destroy this country as 0bama though. Besides…I thought this guy was Mr. Cool…unflappable?

CycloneCDB on April 18, 2012 at 7:49 PM

funny. i thought barry believed he was born in a manger in bethlehem…

more likely born clutching a Little Red Book swaddled in the red, black and green pan-african flag.

mittens on April 18, 2012 at 7:49 PM

Well, I doubt his mouth was empty……he did grow up with Frank M. Davis in Hawaii……
