If you didn’t catch Obama’s latest sham “townhall” meeting this morning, consider this clip to be a condensed version of sorts.

Funny how no politician ever explicitly cops to being a liberal when running for reelection. On the campaign trail, everybody’s a conservative. Even freakin’ FDR. Though to be fair, Obama makes almost anyone seem conservative by comparison.

    compared to obama, amelda marcos was fiscally conservative.

      Right, she restricted her spending to shoes – not $200 M/day trips.

    HEY BARRY,.. So I guess you have NOT stopped snorting coke.

    You MUST be high if you think FDR was in ANY way a fiscal conservative.

    The ONLY reason the depression in the 30’s recovered was because of WW2.

    Conservative?? Au contraire. FDR was a fascist, and at the time, his adminstratration would not have considered being called fascist and insult.

    what he is really saying,if you read between the lines is,FDR didn’t spend enough.he is a keyensian FOOL.

    Obama saying things like this is why theres no point listening to anything he says.

  • KenInMontana

    The fact that he is calling FDR fiscally conservative should scare the bejeebers out of anyone.

    FDR would have been mired in economic doldrums for a lot longer without the onset of WWII to put people to work as soldiers and in manufacturing of armaments. It’s what broke the downward spiral of Keynsean economic policies, and even then he wanted to institute facsism. Conservative? FDR? Not,not, not!

      It took another ten years after the war for the economy to really recover from FDR’s policies, and they are still an anchor around the country’s economic neck.

        You’re right again. The ship of state is one unwieldy vessel and turns around slowly, maybe if we could weigh anchor….

        • KenInMontana

          I’m thinking more along the lines of taking an axe and just cutting the “anchor” loose. ;)

    I usually post the video and make a couple of comments about the key messages of his speeches. This one was one of the best to comment on, so I took it phrase by phrase. You can see the result here:

    Didnt FDR run as a conservative? He and Lippmann worked hard to portray FDR as a conservative and mask the agenda that they truly had. Hmm sounds like Barry and his handlers. Give us words like “hope and change” when what he really meant was “Make you bend over and grab your ankles” while he takes your freedoms at a much greater pace than even his fallback excuse BUUUUUUUSSSH did it.

  • Elimore Foad

    During the 2008 campaign, Obama’s campaign and the MSM repeatedly portrayed him as “moderate”, “post-partisan”, and “post-racial”. They were able to bamboozle enough Americans to install him into office.

    With statements like this one, his radical Marxism is out in the open for everyone to see.

    There is no excuse for 2012. If the Republican nominee, whomever that may be, doesn’t use radical statements like this one and Maobama’s radical record against him, then a loss will be their own fault.

    The wild thing is he was taught this and actually believes it. Do you think? or is he making it up on the fly? Who cares? It is ignorant of the true facts. FDR loved to create big govt and voters dependent on him and he alone, his govt.

  • KenInMontana

    There was never anything remotely “conservative” about FDR he ran as a Democrat but was actually a Progressive, Obama is very much like FDR in his policies and his political views. Anyone who is an honest student of history can see that, by far FDR’s most blatant attempt at transforming our government was when he threatened to expand the number of Justices sitting on the Supreme Court from 9 to 16 in order to pressure SCOTUS into ruling in his favor on the 1942 case of Wikard v. Filburn. Although in reality this was well outside the scope of Presidential Authority.

      if you go to some of the lefty sites they are saying that obama is not leftist enough.apparently obama is to the right of reagan and fdr was conservative.these are comments on paul krugmans editorial site.that is what we are up against.amazing.

      • KenInMontana

        The “Left” is upset with Obama because in their eyes he did not go as far in swinging the nation towards Socialism as he had told them he would during the ’08 campaign. You have to remember from where they stand politically, everyone is to the “Right” of them.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YGATSUTKIDXGK3MCOS634SH4QM Alicia

          yeah,i hear you,it’s just hard to wrap my conservative brain around that people think obama is not left enough.anyway thanks for the response.

    FDR was responsible for prolonging the depression and he gave birth to the demon-seed Social Security slush fund. He brainwashed and softened Americans in the 30’s, so that the liberal gene would be spread from grandpa to grandson. I blame my grandpa’s generation for this mess we’re in now. Damn you FDR!! May Allah have compassion for your soul.
