I think at some point, you've made enough money.

Well Joe,(the plumber) we're gonna spread the wealth.

You can open a coal mine, but we are going to bankrupt it.

That's your president, 3 different quotes, telling us how much he despises capitalism. Telling a legal industry, coal, which employs thousands of people, that he is coming after them...that's pretty scary.

Dumbo Speaks! Obama Calls on Companies to `Get in the Game' by "Spending"

Mark Drajem
- Feb 7, 2011

President Barack Obama urged U.S. business leaders to “get in the game” and support their country by moving cash from the sidelines into the economy.

Johanna Schneider, who directs external relations for the Business Roundtable, an association of almost 200 chief executives of global companies, said corporations owe their shareholders a duty to make investment decisions based on economic conditions.

“Jobs will follow demand,” Schneider said.“Unless you see sustained demand for your product or your service, you cannot from a fiduciary standpoint invest in more employees.”

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-02-07/obam...

Business getting themselves into BAD POSITIONS is part of the reason Why the Financial Crisis Occurred. Now Obama is encouraging it again. What a POS!

There is no great threat to America than the Maggot Broke Obama.

An "Obama Recovery:" Some 43 Million Now Use Food Stamps

February 2, 2011,
By Sara Murray

Nearly a year and a half into the economic recovery, some 43.6 million Americans continued to rely on food stamps in November.

More than 14% of the population drew food stamps in November to purchase groceries as high unemployment and muted wage growth crimped budgets. The number of recipients was up 0.9% from October, according to the new report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Compared to a year ago, the number of people receiving food stamps was up 14.2%.

In both Washington, D.C. and Mississippi more than a fifth of residents received food stamps — the highest recipiency rates of any state.

But demand has grown stronger in the past year in a handful of other states that recorded significant increases on a per capita basis.

In New Mexico, 19.4% of the population tapped into food stamps. That’s up 3.2 percentage points from the same month a year ago, the largest increase for any state. Idaho reported a similar jump: 14% of residents received food stamps, up 3.1 points from a year ago. Washington, D.C., Florida, Delaware and Texas all experienced similar year over year increases.

Obama's Praise of China 'Low Point' in Speech: Trump

Wednesday, 26 Jan 2011
By: Jeff Cox
CNBC.com Staff Writer

China is not a friend of the US and should not have been praised during President Obama's State of the Union speech Tuesday, real estate magnate Donald Trump said.

In a speech that:

"was mostly talk..."
"on the Deficits there was No substance what so ever"
"what about the States going Bankrupt,"
"the country is in a lot of trouble and he doesn't want to discuss it"

...the most disturbing part for the New York-based developer was the president's decision to praise technological and business advances in China, long an economic nemesis for the US.

"I thought the low point was when he talked about how great China was," Trump said in a CNBC interview. "To me that was inappropriate to have in this speech, especially in light of what has happened with China."

The president singled out China for the advances it made in education and held the nation up as an example for what the US should be doing.

For Trump, though, the president's posture is symptomatic of the raw deal the US is getting with its international trading partners.

"I understand the Chinese, and I understand they are not a friend of this country," he said.

"I buy a lot of products and so many of those products come from China...Nucor was telling him how hard it was for him to sell steel in China why over here they sell their products so easily."

"Great Entrepreneurs didn't get or need subsidies from the Government."

"The (Obama) South Korean Free Trade Pact is Terrible for the US.

"We had this tremendous deficit with China last year and we had that with many other countries. We can't be doing that," he later added. "We have become a whipping post for many of the smart countries of the world."

"Our doors are open...we can't even do business in Mexico"

"I watch the politicians and have to laugh...They talk about cutting parts of 15% of the budget but leave the other 85% alone..."

LA Times Editorial by (D) William Daley: A: Controversy Over NAFTA

September 24, 1993

* I am writing in response to the Column Left (Sept. 9) by Bob Kuttner on NAFTA, which paints the trade agreement as ill-advised policy and bad politics.

President Clinton supports NAFTA because he believes it will produce jobs and enhance our competitiveness in the global economy. That is the bottom line: As is now recognized by all but the pact's most subjective foes, this agreement will create more jobs here in the United States than will be lost due to competition.(In the first two years alone, it will create 200,000 jobs, significantly more than it loses.)

Mexico began cutting its tariffs on our goods in 1986. Since then, exports from the U.S. have boomed, transforming a trade deficit to a $5.6 billion trade surplus today. Mexican consumers now buy more from the U.S. than consumers in Europe or Japan.

Any trade agreement between the U.S. and Mexico should ensure that weak environmental enforcement or low wages should not be used to lure American businesses south of the border. That is why the Clinton Administration negotiated unprecedented environmental and labor side agreements to NAFTA. These will impose trade sanctions on Mexico if it does not enforce its own environmental laws (the chief complaint about Mexico has not been its standards, but lack of policing), and allow us to work with Mexico to resolve labor issues. In addition, Mexico has pledged unilaterally to raise its minimum wage as productivity grows.

Ultimately, Kuttner errs by proposing the perfect as the enemy of the good. This agreement will pull Mexico up without pulling us down, and will leave the hemisphere demonstrably more prosperous and less polluted. The bad consequences about which he warns are already happening now, and would continue to happen with or without NAFTA. Our task is to make an inevitably changing world work for us.

NAFTA--by creating jobs, boosting exports, and enhancing the environment--will markedly improve the status quo.

Obama/Pelosi/Reid ATE 'em

Their policies have made it economicly detrimental to create jobs in this Country.
It's going to take more than 4 weeks to rectify 4 YEARS of detrimental policy, unless you think that Repubs are 52 times as good as Dems!?!?

BTW, whizkid, you were thinking of Clara Peller in the Wendy's commercial, not BK (Where's the beef?)
