President Obama was speaking at the Democrat National Committee’s Winter Meetings on Thursday night when he let loose with a couple of rhetorical grenades. One wonders why it’s so hard for the media to understand why this President is so divisive? Every time he opens his mouth he is attacking the ideas, beliefs, principles and even the character of half of our nation. He is the ultimate divider.
What else can you say about someone who says that the GOP doesn’t care about the middle class? Or that none of our ideas actually work??
It is not an accident that America is creating jobs faster than since the last time a Democrat was president.
It is not an accident that our manufactures are creating job since the first time the last time a Democrat was president. It is not an accident and that health care inflation is running at the lowest rates in him is 50 years and that our deficits are falling faster than they have in 60 years.
It is because we believe in middle class economics. We believe in the idea that this country does best when everybody gets a fair shot. Everybody is doing their fair share. Everybody has to play by the same rules, not top-down economics, not trickle down economics. If we were actually to look at the evidence, it is pretty clear whose theory of how to grow the economy and make sure American people are prospering. We know their ideas don’t work. We remember. Middle class economics, that works. Expanding opportunity, that works.
Speaking of the middle class, the President decided to use us (the middle class) in his speech to further demagogue the Republican Party.
I think the shift in rhetoric that they are engaging it is good. If it actually leads them to take different actions. If it doesn’t, then it is just spin. If it doesn’t, if you’re just try to repackage the same top-down economics and use the words middle-class attached to it, if you’re just going to keep on cutting taxes at the top and not raise minimum wages for folks who are struggling, then it is just spin.
To try to bamboozle folks. And looking backwards is not the answer. We have to look forward. Wll of us, as Americans. As Democrats, we have to be the party that recognizes and responds to what Americans really face in the 21st century economy. Our brand of middle-class economics is very specific. We detail it. Here is what we are going to do. We can show you how it is going to help middle-class families and folks striving to get into the middle class.
How can a President serve a nation when he so openly mocks and derides half of her citizens? We need a change America, we need someone who will respect us all… not just the people who vote for him.
