Obama ad: “Time for a new economic patriotism”

posted at 11:21 am on September 27, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Yesterday, Mitt Romney released a one-minute ad in which he spoke directly into the camera about the failures of Obama’s economic policy — and it looks like Team Obama followed suit (upping the ante with a two-minute ad spot, mmm hmm), having the president talk in a face-to-face format about his economic plan for the next four years. I suppose we’re meant to believe that this is what “giving specifics” on an “economic plan” looks like:

Now, Governor Romney believes that with that even bigger tax cuts for the wealthy and fewer regulations on Wall Street all of us will prosper. In other words he’d double down on the same trickle down policies that led to the crisis in the first place. So what’s my plan?

Enough with the big, fat “the same policies that got us here in the first place” lie. It’s hogwash.

First, we create a million new manufacturing jobs and help businesses double their exports. Give tax breaks to companies that invest in America, not that ship jobs overseas.

Pardon me, but how is it that you’re going to create these million marvelous manufacturing jobs when you’ve only failed spectacularly so far? Because giving tax breaks, a.k.a. providing subsidies, a.k.a. picking economic winners and losers, for your preferred businesses does not create jobs. And enough with this relentless demonization of “shipping jobs overseas” — if doing so helps us to obtain goods and services more cheaply and efficiently, which it does, that can and does create jobs, because that means we all have more disposable income and thereby are all wealthier.

Second, we cut our oil imports in half and produce more American-made energy, oil, clean-coal, natural gas, and new resources like wind, solar and bio-fuels—all while doubling the fuel efficiencies of cars and trucks.

No. Your administration has been steadily and purposefully impairing Americans’ ability to tap into our own abundant natural resources and blocking business opportunities for natural gas; clean coal is an expensive and costly nightmare; and your record on coercing Americans into using more wind/solar/biofuels — which currently hold exactly zero serious potential as viable, widespread substitutes for oil and gas — has failed tremendously, as have your many “green jobs” initiatives.

Third, we insure that we maintain the best workforce in the world by preparing 100,000 additional math and science teachers. Training 2 million Americans with the job skills they need at our community colleges. Cutting the growth of tuition in half and expanding student aid so more Americans can afford it.

Is this code for “more stimulus”, which translates into spending even more money we don’t have? Who is going to perform and pay for all of this additional training, exactly? Oh, let me guess — the federal government. Whoop-de-doo. And does anybody in your august administration realize that subsidizing student aid so that more Americans can afford going to college is going to hike demand — which is going to make tuition even more expensive? You can’t have it both ways, and hey, it might be nice of all of those college graduates could find jobs and maybe become capable of paying off all of that debt.

Fourth, a balanced plan to reduce our deficit by four trillion dollars over the next decade on top of the trillion in spending we’ve already cut, I’d ask the wealthy to pay a little more. And as we end the war in Afghanistan let’s apply half the savings to pay down our debt and use the rest for some nation building right here at home.

Even if I believed that you were going to suddenly reverse your trend of growing more than trillion-dollar annual deficits (which, given all that government spending implied above, I don’t), taxing the wealthy more isn’t going to necessarily increase revenue by much — and the damage to our economy is going to be infinitely worse.

It’s time for a new economic patriotism. Rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class. Read my plan. Compare it to Governor Romney’s and decide for yourself. Thanks for listening.

“New economic patriotism”? Does that sound severely creepy to anyone else?

I’ve been living under economic patriotism since the American people elected a Democrat congress. My home is worth much less and can’t be sold, there’s been no pay raises for four years, my business profit has dropped in half and my wife and I work twice as many hours just to hold on. Vacations, the RV and any other fun stuff we once earned….gone. The fact that this is supposed to be a close election, or that these people will be kept in power for four more years is just more suffering under USSA economic patriotism.

So… Is his plan to tax those who earn above $250,000 so severely that they become middle class again? Is that the way he builds the middle class? ‘Cause that’s what’s happening.

The higher taxes won’t hit the Buffett-type millionaires and billionaires who contribute their support and money to Obama. He is killing the small and medium business owners. Why?

So let’s dust off the old detail free plan and add a million jobs to it. Let’s not define what a ‘job’ is or explain how we’ll ‘create’ them, because that would ruin the effect.

That’s Obama’s whole schtick after all: provide no real path on how he’ll achieve the outrageous promises, and simply blame it on headwinds/Bush/Do-nothing congress after the failure becomes self evident.

This is a REDUX of 2008, changed ever so slightly. What a joke!

JOBS
2012:
Create 1 million new manufacturing jobs, tax breaks to companies that don’t ship jobs overseas.

2008:
End tax breaks for companies that ship American jobs overseas and provide incentives for companies that keep and maintain good jobs in the United States. Invest in advanced energy technologies and create “millions of new, good ‘Green Collar’ American jobs.”

ENERGY
2012:
Cut imports in half, increase domestic production of oil, clean coal, natural gas, and renewables

2008:
Reduce oil consumption by at least 35 percent, or ten million barrels per day, by 2030.

As president, as president, I will tap our natural gas reserves, invest in clean coal technology, and find ways to safely harness nuclear power. … And I’ll invest $150 billion over the next decade in affordable, renewable sources of energy — wind power, and solar power (OTCBB:SOPW) , and the next generation of biofuels — an investment that will lead to new industries and 5 million new jobs that pay well and can’t be outsourced.

WORKFORCE
2012:
100,000 new teachers, train 2 million for new jobs

2008:
“We’ll create 5 million new, high-wage jobs by investing in the renewable sources of energy that will eliminate the oil we currently import from the Middle East in 10 years, and we’ll create 2 million jobs by rebuilding our crumbling roads, schools, and bridges.”
Red Green & Blue (http://s.tt/12A0w)

(2010) Today, President Barack Obama announced a new goal of recruiting 10,000 Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) teachers over the next two years. This announcement will move the country forward on the Obama Administration’s ambitious goal of preparing 100,000 STEM teachers over the next decade.

DEFICIT (OUR DEFICIT IS ~1.2 TIRLLION, OUR DEBT IS ~16 TRILLION. HE DOENS’T EVEN KNOW THE DIFFERENCE)
2012:
Reduce by 4 trillion, ask wealthy to pay “a little more”, use half of Afghanistan savings for rebuilding at home

2008:

(Feb 2009) Obama will cut deficit in half

Talk about not coming up with any new ideas….THROW THE BUM OUT!!!

Those of us who bothered to pay attention when this jackass come upon the scene, knew and said this. The man is a pedestrian intellect, fortified with a greatest hits compilation of leftist bromides that he overheard during 4:00AM bong fuel dorm sessions. The goofball voter fell for the presentation -pleasing baritone which, if you ask me, is nothing but grating- without paying attention to the words.

Idiots.

So this is what you get. Discombobulated jibberish that fires up lefty Cheeto munchers and, to the clueless drone voter, pleasant sounding things that play very well in an academic environment where all the variables are set for a preconceived result and reality and human behavior is factored out.

When your preconceived notions of how things work are scuttled by reality, there is nothing left to do but lie.

…..or, double down on the stupid.

And, here we are. What a joke.

But, step right up, idiot voter. Have another swing at the government pinata. Perhaps more free stuff will fall out next year.

“Economic patriotism”

What that means is this:

Do Americans truly understand ‘redistribution of wealth’?

“When he proposed to redistribute wealth, Obama meant that the system has to find a “trick” way to transform your wealth into government’s hands. Government will then distribute that wealth to others of its choosing.

Your work and your wealth will belong to the government “in the name of society”; in other words, it will belong to the collective. Actually, though, your work and your wealth will belong to the elite of the government, who will decide who and what is given your money. This is what “redistribution of wealth” means in Obama’s philosophy; it is also the basic principle of communism.

The meaning of the “redistribution” of wealth is official government stealing and the end of your freedom. It is the beginning of your forced sacrifices for your leader, your government, and your society. This leads to a permanent realignment of power in society, as has been seen in Europe, or the rise of a dictator, as has been seen frequently in communist society.”

When they leave, at first they say, “Good Riddance!” (remember Rush Limbaugh leaving New York?), then they make a financial wall or a leaving tax (remember This) and finally they build a physical wall.

rplat on September 27, 2012 at 2:53 PM

First, we create a million new manufacturing jobs and help businesses double their exports. Give tax breaks to companies that invest in America, not that ship jobs overseas.

You mean companies such as GM which are opening factories in China while “suspending” others here? Or such as GE, which gets many green “tax breaks” but manufactures its products over there as well?

What part of “we have the highest corporate tax in the world, a host of regulations, and easy lawsuits” do you not understand is driving companies to send projects overseas?

Second, we cut our oil imports in half and produce more American-made energy, oil, clean-coal, natural gas, and new resources like wind, solar and bio-fuels—all while doubling the fuel efficiencies of cars and trucks.

Do you mean oil and gas production that is thriving in the private sector in spite of your administration making it impossible to produce energy in this country? And what clean coal are you talking about Mr. President? Is that the clean coal that would make it nearly impossible for any new producer to open a new mine and “necessarily skyrocket” energy costs? What about the unnecessary extra cost of bio- fuels added to the cost of regular fuel each summer? How are those affecting food prices on top of fuel costs? And, do you mean coercing insane fuel efficiency standards via mandates?

Third, we insure that we maintain the best workforce in the world by preparing 100,000 additional math and science teachers. Training 2 million Americans with the job skills they need at our community colleges. Cutting the growth of tuition in half and expanding student aid so more Americans can afford it.

Give specifics oh my king. How do you plan to pay for all of this WHILE cutting 4 trillion dollars of the deficit? Because not even taxing the wealthy to 100% would could a single year of your trillion+ deficits.

Where are those “2 million Americans” going to apply those skills you are gonna teach them if there are no producers to create jobs? A “math and science teacher” does not a job produce Mr. President. My grandfather without even completing secondary education was an entrepreneur and venture capitalist and created more jobs in a lifetime than a “math and science teacher” will create – or even influence- in three.

And double the gas price since he took office… Second it is a huge lie that we cut our import of oil in half…

mnjg on September 27, 2012 at 3:03 PM

Fourth, a balanced plan to reduce our deficit by four trillion dollars over the next decade on top of the trillion in spending we’ve already cut, I’d ask the wealthy to pay a little more. And as we end the war in Afghanistan let’s apply half the savings to pay down our debt and use the rest for some nation building right here at home.

Yeah like his promise to cut the defict by half when he took office and now the deficit is 4 times what it was when he took office for each single year of his Presidency… The audacity of lying is simply beyoind belief…

mnjg on September 27, 2012 at 3:06 PM

Okay, I’m officially confused.

Obama says that he wants to use the “savings” from ending the war in Afghanistan to be split in half – first to “pay down our debt” and second to do “nation building right here at home.”

Isn’t this the same guy who has been screaming forever, along with his full liberal chorus, that these were “unfunded wars” that led to our deficit?

So if the wars are indeed “unfunded,” i.e. “borrowed,” how can you use “borrowed” money to pay down your debt? And if you spend the other half of the “borrowed” money on nation-building right here at home, doesn’t that just add more debt?

Let me try this… “Good news, honey! You know all that money I have been adding to our credit card balance? I’m not going to spend that amount any more. Now, I’m going to take half of what I am not going to spend anymore and use that to pay down our debt, and I am going to take the other half that I don’t spend any more and blow that on useless boondoggles – that I will continue to charge to my credit card. We’ll be rich before you know it!”

And people are actually gonna VOTE for this creep? They must be the strippers getting the tips charged to his credit card…

Fourth, a balanced plan to reduce our deficit by four trillion dollars over the next decade on top of the trillion in spending we’ve already cut

Good plan, lots of people don’t get the difference between the deficit and the debt.

If you run a $300 Billion dollar deficit (as we did in 2006) you can project a 3 Trillion dollar deficit.

Bump that up to 1.6 Trillion per year and you have a projected 16 trillion and it’s not that hard to cut 4, leaving you with a 12 trillion dollar deficit.

Sure you’re adding more to the debt than any President before, but if people hear you’ve “cut the deficit” lots of them are too stupid to know that doesn’t mean the debt is still growing faster than ever before.

Even better, lots of other people don’t care. If I’m not going to work, or I’m going to die soon anyhow, it won’t be me who has to pay the bill, bring me more expensive stuff on the tab.

Probably a very popular plan overall. Sad but true.

You have made the claim ad nauseum that your policies have created 4.6 million new private sector jobs in the last three years, yet unemployment is still well above 8%, home values are still at rock bottom, the debt and deficit are growing and the economy is not.

With that in mind, how stupid do you think we are to believe that these ONE million jobs you are going to create out of thin air will make any difference?

Neo-fascism.

Wigglesworth on September 27, 2012 at 4:10 PM

Despite a more mild recession the Bush recovery created more jobs than the Obama recovery. If you are going to cherry pick a timeline then let’s compare apples to apples. You can’t compare only the good Obama months with the entire Bush term.

Economic Patriotism:

Hand me over your cash so I can buy cheap cell phones for my sheep down on the vote farm.

mojowt on September 27, 2012 at 4:13 PM

Taxation at confiscatory levels is what Mr. Obama calls “economic patriotism”? That is probably the most despicable propaganda I heve ever heard.

Redistribution of wealth, demonizing success and stealing $6 trillion from our people by adding to the deficit?

I barely recognize our country anymore.

Hey Barry

I would just settle to going back to our budget of 2006

Economic patriotism means you will buy a Chevy Volt or go to jail.

Actually it means that you will be forced to pay for a Chevy Volt that your neighbor using food stamps will get, or got to jail. That’s Patriotic!!!

Okay:

Mitt is going to add 2 million jobs…he is going to cut oil importing by 3/4…200,000 additional math and science teachers…reduce our deficit by 8 trillion dollars on top the the 2 trillion…and we are going to be twice as much of an economic patriot than Obama…that’s our plan, thanks for listening…

Did not you hear about Obama adding a new law to Thermodaynamics? He dedicated his genius work in the field of Thermodaymics to Shaniqwa the welfare queen from inner city Chicago, she was his inspiration and she even co-authored a paper with him on this subject… A Nobel Prize in Physics is soon to be awared to him…

I think I read that economic patriotism line in a history book quoting Stalin. The veneer has really come off the empty chair and I’m waiting for him to develop a 5 year plan to replace the last plan. All he needs to add to the speech is a reference to the motherland or was it fatherland.

Not necessarily. What the proggies would like is an application process, where you apply to them for permission to buy a vehicle. You give them all your information and they give you back a couple of choices.

“New economic patriotism”? Does that sound severely creepy to anyone else?
POSTED AT 11:21 AM ON SEPTEMBER 27, 2012 BY ERIKA JOHNSEN

That’s your angle…it sounds ‘creepy’?
It’s a phrase that you would have been fine with if Romney came up with it to define his fiscal policy.
And of course your parsing all the ‘code’ here.
Have you played the video backwards yet?
It will, like, totally freak you out.

verbaluce on September 27, 2012 at 5:36 PM

What does he mean? No one knew what Obama meant in 2008 when he said he was going to fundamentally transform America. We know now, and its what many of us feared.

new economic patriotism

They are masters of rhetorical trickery. They take values we all hold dear, then turn them upside down to promote their own values, though their own values are antithetical to the ones they corrupted; e.g. Fairness, social justice, economic justice, tolerance, equality, patriotism.

Economic patriotism — dutifully pay higher taxes for redistribution and totalitarian statism.

petefrt on September 27, 2012 at 5:42 PM

It means offering up your private property to the all-powerful State…

Pest on September 27, 2012 at 5:45 PM

It’s time for a new economic patriotism.

Well, old economic patriotism would be protectionism.

As for “new” economic patriotism, I gather that it’s probably the opposite. All I can imagine is that he means some sort of socialist/corporatist model….?

Rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class.

Out and out lie there. They despise the middle class-unless of course by middle class they mean “proletariat” which is pretty much everybody…but nothing special in the way of opportunities for the individual. That would be decided by the State.

My take on all this Newspeak and double talk anyway.

Don L on September 27, 2012 at 5:55 PM

What does “New economic patriotism” mean? Nothing.
He’s another babbling politician who can only utter clap-trap that sounds good. He’s just

If he really has a plan to “create a million new manufacturing jobs and help businesses double their exports…”, then the obvious question is why has he not already done this? He’s clearly banking on the expectation that enough voters are stupid to put him over, and I’m worried that he’s right.

She is getting more than just a free cell phone. She is getting welfare checks, Section 8 housing, Medicaid and foodstamps. She is working once every 4 years, and her “job” is to mug you at the voting booth.
