Mr. "Old Soft Shoe" himself is at it again.

Petting the puppies and brushing the kittens as usual.

This time he's preaching about economic growth being "broadly shared" !!!

In his weekly address he cites all kinds of munchies like helping the middle class and whatnot.

He's getting into campaign mode for the desperate Democrats facing mass defeat in November.



In this week's address, President Obama ensured that economic growth is to be "broadly shared" from the "middle-out." And going against the trend of the vast majority of recent addresses, this one didn't completely heap the blame of failure on Congress but actually gave them a slight "atta' boy." But never fear, Obama didn't fail to mention that he will do whatever, whenever he can, with his phone and pen.

From the "Middle-Out" ?? Don't you mean "from the Middle-Down" Barack ?




The president boasted that 10 million jobs have been created over the past 52 months saying, "China is no longer the world's best place to invest -- America is." He congratulated hard working Americans for this achievement. But he wants to make sure that everyone can share in this economic boom:

Now we have the opportunity to ensure that this growth is broadly shared. Our economy grows best not from the top-down, but from the middle-out. We do better when the middle class does better. So we have to make sure that we’re not just creating more jobs, but raising middle-class wages and incomes. We have to make sure our economy works for every working American.

"My opportunity agenda does that," Obama said. He even said that Vice President Joe Biden has been busy working on a report that will transform America's "job training system into a job-driven training system."

Sounds like a classic "Tax Bait" to me. And what about the job *LOSSES* Barack ? And Joe's plan ? I bet it's more like a job "Killer".



... Obama goes on and on and actually gives a little credit to Congress !!! He now all-of-a-sudden says he wants to work with both Democrats and Republicans to get that minimum wage raised up !!! And to "strengthen the borders" through immigration "reform" HA HA. Obama has already made a dog pile mess of that agenda hasn't he.


And finally....


"Because nothing's more important to me than you -- your hopes, your concerns, and making sure this country remains the place where everyone who works hard can make it if you try. "

How is it helping the middle class.. if the fruits of their labor is shared "out"?

I really wish people en masse would see through the fog, but I really think a majority will be clapping like the dumb walruses they are.

I get nervous whenever a progressive uses the word "share".

That usually means he wants to share what I have and keep what he has.

OH THE HORROR!

That is a 100% true statement. Trickle-down economics does not work (don't trickle-down my leg and tell me it's raining jobs) and a large, strong middle-class is the entire point. I'm not saying it's not a platitude but wth have the Republicans done in the same time? Fiscal cliff debacles? Yay.

EDIT:

Also, look at these Saul Alinsky tactics! Classic! Right out of Rules for Radicals:

From the OP's source.

So Obama wants to use the middle class to feed the programs that he wants.

Middle-out?

Sounds like he wants more taxes, more usury from those that can least afford it!

How does that work again?

Top down; bottom up; middle out ... or inside out.



Cloward-Piven

Collapse the system by destroying the middle class. That's directly what he's referencing. When they share out the wealth of the middle class, it gets closer to the bottom and they get closer to their goal.
