"Fairness" depends on your definition of what "is - is"

Now that  Obumbler has incarnated so many presidents of the past  - Regan, Lincoln, Truman, Wilson, FDR and failed to convince any one of a comparison he is  now trying Teddy Roosevelt, a progressive republican and trader to the conservative movement hoping to move to the progressive middle if there is such a thing.

Since "hope and change" have died his Keynesian economic plans have failed and are in the toilet and unemployment  is still really way above 9%, in desperation he continues the demagoguery, lies, and class warfare mime with the added strategy of "FAIRNESS".

I am guessing he thinks he can fool everyone a second time with this new strategy as progressives always just change the words or the "phrase of the day" but there evil ego maniacal  intent remains the same.

David Harsanyi put it best in his article on Real Clear Politics  

"Obama vs. Capitalism":

"In  Teddy Roosevelt's era, President Obama explained to the nation this week, "some people thought massive inequality and exploitation was the price of progress.   ....But Roosevelt also knew that the free market has never been a free license to take whatever you want from whoever you can."

"And he's right. Even today there are  people who believe they should have free license to take whatever they want from whomever they can.  They're called DEMOCRATS.

That statement sums it all up and is brilliant because just like "it depends on what your definition of is - is" or "hope and change" "FAIRNESS" can mean anything anyone wants it to be.

For the socialist-in-chief most can imagine that he thinks fairness is "spreading the wealth around" through more taxes on the rich, more regulations forced on private industry and business, and of course much more government spending to give every one a "FAIR SHOT"

He thinks the defining moment of our time is "the middle class struggle to find a decent life" which is double speak considering his polices have done MORE to impede middle class growth.

For myself the defining moment of our time will be sending him on a permanent golfing holiday so we can return to our core principals envisioned by the founders and rid ourselves of the disease of progressivism.

Back to "fairness",  in fact one could argue that the country has actually gotten more "fair" - the richest 1% now pay 40% of all federal taxes, up from 25% two decades ago, while the bottom half pays just 2%, down from 6% two decades ago, and the federal government has exploded in size and spending is way up as a percent of GDP and HE STILL WANTS MORE?

What is really "UNFAIR" is that his policies have produced a dribbling economy that's hurt everyone and especially the middle class.

The IBO (Independent Budget Office) reported recently that household income has dropped 7% since the recession ended in 2009.  
Unemployment is HIGHER since Obumbler took office, home prices are significantly lower, inflation is exploding and inequality has certainly risen.

But who has benefited from Obumbler"s reign?

The vary people he publicly vilifies and then sneaks off to fund raisers were he charges $38,500 per couple for the honor of dining with his lordship.

The IBO reports corporate profits are up 69% and Wall Street investors are smiling as the dow is up 45% since he bailed everyone out and the FED continues the pump to prop up the economy.

Obama explained the roots of the problem as,
"Over the last few decades, huge advances in technology have allowed businesses to do more with less, and made it easier for them to set up shop and hire workers anywhere in the world….Steel mills that needed 1,000 employees are now able to do the same work with 100, so that layoffs were too often permanent, not just a temporary part of the business cycle….If you were a bank teller or a phone operator or a travel agent, you saw many in your profession replaced by ATMs or the Internet."
This Luddite analysis fundamentally misconceives the role of technology in a modern economy.  Such advancing technology increases worker productivity, and hence wages and standards of living.  Technological progress over the decades is why the average American worker in 2000 enjoyed 7 times the standard of living of the average American worker in 1900.

Does this man even think or does he think we are stupid?

The hypocrisy of this regime knows no bounds - they all deserve to be in JAIL along with the rest of the corrupt political elite/class who benefit from such things as insider trading while the rest of us struggle.

At least we can say with certainty that Obumblers latest speech in Kanas dropped all pretenses of his distain for the free markets and the Republic in favor of the progressive vision for BIG GOVERNMENT and SOCIALISM/STATISM/THE NANNY STATE.

Truly America is at a cross roads in history where we can regain our sanity and return to core principals of the founders and the Republic or slide down the road to SERFDOM.

Obumbler is dangerious and needs to be voted into retirement.
