Ryan Reacts to Obama’s Demagoguery
OBAMA: It is a Trojan horse disguised as deficit-reduction plans. It is really an attempt to impose a radical vision on our country. It is thinly veiled social Darwinism. It is antithetical to our entire history as a land of opportunity and upward mobility for everybody who’s willing to work for it. A place where prosperity doesn’t trickle down from the top but grows outward from the heart of the middle class.
RUSH: I really am at a loss to deal with this, because it’s so far from reality that an attempt to analyze this from a base of reality isn’t possible. This is the purposeful meandering and wandering so far from the truth as to make it practically impossible to put this in any kind of context. All I can tell you is that none of this is true and I don’t even know what he means by “social Darwinism.” Social Darwinism to him is, “You’re on your own! That’s what the Republicans believe in, and to hell with you — and it’s never worked. The only thing that’s worked is what we’ve done in the last three-and-a-half years.”
See, but the architect of the worst economy in the nation’s history… Do you remember 1992? The Clinton campaign, what was its slogan?
“The worst economy in the last 50 years.”
Which, of course, it wasn’t.
This may well be. Obama’s economy is the worst economy in the last 50 years. See, the problem is, this is what he wants. He’s the architect of this. He gave us this economy. He gave us this recovery. He wants more Marcias, but he doesn’t want them escaping. He wants them in welfare. He wants them in a state of perpetual dependence, bcause that means they need him. And that means they’ll vote for him. It’s a cynical plan and it’s no more complicated than that. It’s dehumanizing. There is nothing uplifting. There’s no social justice here. There’s no economic growth whatsoever. There’s no opportunity, no prosperity with the Obama budget, with the Obama way of life. They don’t believe it’s possible anyway unless they are in total charge of the command-and-control and assigning it to people.
