Video: RNC jumps on Obama’s redistribution quote

posted at 11:21 am on September 19, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

It doesn’t take long these days for quotable quotes to end up as campaign ads, at least on the Internet.  The RNC put together this web ad overnight that exploits the discovery of Barack Obama’s 1998 embrace of redistributionism, effectively pairing it with a December 2011 60 Minutes interview where Obama denied that his policies had anything to do with redistribution at all.  It finishes with Mitt Romney’s speech at the Republican national convention, asking why anyone is surprised at the lousy Obama recovery while Obama attacks success:

Steve Kroft asked Obama about the redistribution charge (and the accusation that Obama is a socialist) in the CBS interview, and Obama provided this response:

Kroft asked Obama about his mention of “income inequality” in a speech last week, asking if this doesn’t suggest redistribution of wealth, which is (obviously) code for socialism. “People will say this is socialist Obama,” Kroft challenged. “And he’s come out of the closet.” Obama responded that this is nonsense, that income inequality has nothing to do with socialism.  “Everybody’s concerned about inequality,” Obama said. “What’s happened to the bargain? What’s happened to the American deal that says, you know, we are focused on building a strong middle class?”

Just a reminder of the status of the middle class in the Obama recovery:

Household income is down sharply since the recession ended three years ago, according to a report released Thursday, providing another sign of the stubborn weakness of the economic recovery.

From June 2009 to June 2012, inflation-adjusted median household income fell 4.8 percent, to $50,964, according to a report by Sentier Research, a firm headed by two former Census Bureau officials.

Incomes have dropped more since the beginning of the recovery than they did during the recession itself, when they declined 2.6 percent, according to the report, which analyzed data from the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey. The recession, the most severe since the Great Depression, lasted from December 2007 to June 2009.

Overall, median income is 7.2 percent below its December 2007 level and 8.1 percent below where it stood in January 2000, when it was $55,470, according to the report.

This is what happens when we focus on fairness instead of growth.

Still the wrong ad. Let me help.

A moving graph showing the declining median income, with gas prices going up.

Backdropped by Obama saying:

When you spread the wealth around …

I believe in redistribution …

You didn’t build that …

And ending with Ryan’s “a lifeless journey from one entitlement to another, where everything is free, but us.”

Obama can try and twist what he says any which way he thinks he can, it doesn’t wash with me, he is talking Socialism… there is no getting away from it…

But if the tide does turn, there is no escape, we all will live under his ideology…

Time is creeping and it is getting closer than we think to his solutions of so called ‘Fairness’…

If he was really serious about this he could have done it… but he wants to monkey around and royally screw things up so bad that it will take a decade or more to fix if it can ever be fixed.

Has anyone ever seen the govt take back somthing they did or keep tweaking it until it has to collapse, like SS.

Smaller Govt! Less Spending and free up the marketplace for growth!

I had it explained to me when I was but a youngster:

A conservative will walk into a magnificent mansion and say, “Everyone should be able to live like this!”

I believe that the most important word in the two comments is “able”, not promised, guaranteed, gifted, subsidized, but able to through his own hard work and ingenuity, without liberals and government preventing or hindering him.

Notice the “infectious” Obysmal grin and his “aw-shucks” tilting of the head. Those two factors are what contribute to the false meme that O is likable. Add to that his incorporating the “middle class” word magic—even though we all know that O’s policies have been most destructive to that sector of the voting public– and the Axelturf marketing is complete.

Good grief, GOP pols, get some hard-hitting statistics that show how little the valueless dollar purchases under O’s stewardship: gas prices up, food prices up, and so forth.

“Obama responded that this is nonsense, that income inequality has nothing to do with socialism. “Everybody’s concerned about inequality,”

Which is why a filthy rat-eared bastard candidate for President is using the term income inequality instead of state seizure of wealth to explain why we should support his commie policies. It’s like the way the left has hijacked the term pro-choice to describe their support of killing children even if it means chasing the fetus down the hallway and bashing it with a fire extinguisher. There is no such thing as choice in the pro-choice position any more than there is anything equitable about Obama’s ideas that certain members of society need to pay more in the name of fairness.

Here’s another problem with little Bammie’s welfare state, besides the theft aspect, -because when these programs are invented and implemented, they don’t consider that government giveaways can stack up and leave people better off not working.

Fear the Welfare Cliff

We have to eliminate this problem. There has to be a benefit in going back to work, or working more hours, or finding a better job. As long as these flaws are designed into the system, we WILL breed generation after generation of parasites.

At the very core of the Progressive/Modern Democrat philosophy is a rejection/misunderstanding of basic economic principles.

This is why everything they dominate slowly but inevitably turns to crap.

Can you imagine if Leftists had control over every branch of the Federal government, the entire SCOTUS, and every governorship, state & local position of authority? America would implode within 5 years.

Their ideology, when taken outside of the classroom, can never work over any extended period of time, anywhere. These people are neo-Luddite throwbacks.

The meme of tax the rich is quite catchy really. /

Only the envious and jealous would want this.

That is what it comes down to: the ones who didn’t have the thought or the idea to CREATE like Jobs or Gates for example, are now castigated all because some other poor schmuck didn’t think of it in the first place…

But they never start with inequality of effort (or even get to it for that matter). Those in the hammock that once was a safety net need to be booted and THAT will lead to a much improved situation for EVERYBODY.
-
BTW… that huge over the top sh*t eating grin that Obama makes when he gets caught in one of his socialist positions or some other supposed to be secret/unspoken part of his plan… That’s a tick I’ll bet he’s used all his life to get out of being caught.

It probably started as ‘ain’t I too cute to be mad at’… but now it’s a touch of F’you for asking.

The earned income tax credit (EITC) was implemented under Carter in 1976. Your write up was an attempt to imply that Reagan instituted it. Not getting rid of it with his tax cuts doesn’t necessarily equal unqualified support as you implied.

And since the majority of dems and libs are athiest what would they know?

Scrumpy on September 19, 2012 at 12:15 PM

Most Democrats aren’t even atheists, most atheists, real atheists that is, while rejecting the idea of god, do not reject that notion of ethics or morals. They do not subscribe to situational ethics or morals and do not subscribe to the political ideology that the end justifies the means.

Isn’t the reason we broke from England is the very concepts Obowma proposes? t

The king wanted more taxes, Obowma wants more taxes.
The king wanted control of his subjects, Obowma wants to control what we eat, buy, drive and consume.
The king wanted over regulation to control companies, Obowma owns GM, outsourced Chrysler to China and to
Fiat in Italy and wants the EPA to limit business growth.
The king had a war with Merica, Obowma has class warfare pitting poor against rich, class versus class.

There’s NOTHING to like about the man, he is destroying this country.

Well this does:

Reagan (upon signing a huge expansion of the program):
“…the best anti-poverty, the best pro-family, the best job creation measure to come out of Congress.”

But whatever –
Romney knows he would have lost 47% of voters to Reagan –
but his job is to not worry about those folks.

Not without a teleprompter or assist from the moderators he won’t. On his own, guy can’t think his way out of a paper bag.

Heating oil up over $4/gal here in SE NY. Propane over $10/gal! Going to cost $1500 easy just to get the place ready for the Winter voyage. Will probably need to purchase more before Spring if the Winter is tough. Gasoline at $100/week to get to work. Don’t see any possibility of prices lowering at any point this season even when Mitt is elected. Nice work with that energy and ME policy, Zero.

“People will say this is socialist Obama,” Kroft challenged. “And he’s come out of the closet.” Obama responded that this is nonsense, that income inequality has nothing to do with socialism.

OK, we’ve seen this before. Hillary mentioned “socialist” in the 2008 Dem Primary debate and Obama’s reaction was identical. His face was haughty but concerned in the beginning of the Kroft clip. As soon as the word “socialist” was spoken, Obama simultaneously closed his eyes (for longer than a blink) and his face exploded in his practiced trademark smile as he cast his eyes down turning his head toward the left. When Obama began to speak his eyes were still down and to the left. Folks, ask a streetwise city cop, ask an Army interrogator, ask a psychiatrist, this is classic deception. If he were white, his face would have reddened. Of course he’s a socialist/marxist. He was raised by them, mentored by them and sought them out in college and thereafter. He’s a Red Diaper Baby, as is Axelrod, and Kroft knows it but is more than willing to help Obama get out from under this charge.

Socialists never cop to the charge until they have attained complete control. Remember Castro? Remember the Viet Cong? They claimed to be Nationalists, the Communist North was just helping them out.

No, you are trying to lie about Ronald Reagan, not talk about him. Not that a bald faced Marxist lying sack of shit like you would know the difference between the truth and a lie.

Household income is down sharply since the recession ended three years ago, according to a report released Thursday, providing another sign of the stubborn weakness of the economic recovery.

The recession ended three years ago?

Who da thunk?

Speaking to the 47%: The $105,000 champagne tower featured at Obama fundraiser hosted by Jay-Z and Beyonce
Drained Brain on September 19, 2012 at 11:53 AM

That article is funny. Obama thinks Beyonce and Jay-Z are great role models for his daughters.

Here is a sample of some of Jay-Z’s lyrics:

Big Pimpin’”

You know I – thug em, f*ck em, love em, leave em
Cause I don’t f*ckin need em
Take em out the hood, keep em lookin good
But I don’t f*ckin feed em
First time they fuss I’m breezin
Talkin bout, “What’s the reasons?”
I’m a pimp in every sense of the word, b*tch
Better trust than believe em
In the cut where I keep em
til I need a nut, til I need to beat the guts
Then it’s, beep beep and I’m pickin em up
Let em play with the d*ck in the truck
Many chicks wanna put Jigga fist in cuffs
Divorce him and split his bucks
Just because you got good head, I’ma break bread
so you can be livin it up? Shit I..
parts with nothin, y’all be frontin
Me give my heart to a woman?
Not for nothin, never happen
I’ll be forever mackin
Heart cold as assassins, I got no passion
I got no patience
And I hate waitin..
Hoe get yo’ ass in
Charming, yes?

No wonder Obama wants his daughters spending more time with artists who pen poetic lyrics like this. It’s just so . . . inspirational, isn’t it? What parent would not want his young, impressionable daughters exposed to this?

AZCoyote on September 19, 2012 at 12:37 PM

I feel certain that a 14 year old tape of State Senator Obama voicing support for such controversial programs as Pell Grants, the EITC and food stamps is going to recapture the momentum for Romney. As for the 60 Minutes bit, there’s no question but that Romney should make an issue of positions “evolving” over time. I’m sure he’d come off well.

The old quote also shows you little Bammie’s original speaking voice, before he developed his current style by studying videos of black preachers including the racist knuckledragger Jeremiah Wright.

slickwillie2001 on September 19, 2012 at 11:27 AM

I must of missed him speaking. Must have been that loud music or the camera flashing back an froth that distracted me.

timberline on September 19, 2012 at 12:40 PM

If I am not mistaken,,Jug Ears had the same conversation with Joe The Plumber on the campaign during an “unscripted, off the cuff” remark. Nobody wants to pay attention to this clown. He tells you exactly who and what he is and everyone acts surprised.

retiredeagle on September 19, 2012 at 12:40 PM

Would have been an okay ad if the music wasn’t so loud that it obscured what was being said.
