Now it’s Obama’s turn to deal with a leaked recording

Team Obama has another YouTube to blame for their troubles.
This one won’t be blamed for killing our diplomats in the Middle East, but it could terminate Obama’s chances for reelection.

It turns out that Obama did not misspeak or speak inelegantly in 2008 when he told Joe the Plumber that he wants to redistribute the wealth.  He told a 1998 meeting at Loyola University that he “actually believes in redistribution.”

“The trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some [wealth] redistribution — because I actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level to make sure that everybody’s got a shot.”

Do you think this video will get as much play in the mainstream media as Mitt Romney’s fundraising videos have gotten?

I can’t wait to hear how the liberal pundits spin this one. 

To all those who taken offense to Obama being called a socialist, what say you now?   I can’t wait to hear it.

    The mainstream can try and bury this, but thanks to truth-tellers like Fox News and blogs like MMM, the muslim in the White House won’t be able to hide from this. I also actually think that the Romney video will end up hurting Obama. Now that the initial flury of liberal hysteria has waned, people are starting to realize that Romney was just speaking the truth. Even the leeches have to admit he’s right. Now is the time to really pound away at Obama – 48 million on food stamps, Medicaid increasing by almost 58%, real unemployment at 22%, gas over $4 a gallon, Americans murdered and dragged through the streets and the amateur community activist is partying with Jay Z and Beyonce. Romney just has to stay on message and unload with both barrels. Show pictures of Greece and those stats. Then let Ryan make a fool out of Biden (not that he needs any help) at the debate.

    this recording is painful to listen to.
    Bad, bad, bad news for Obama.

  3. TR said at 12:03 am on September 19th, 2012:

    Do you realize you sound like an idiot when you call him the Muslim in the whitehouse and that in doing so you give the the democrats an opportunity to slander us all as extremists. If anything he is non-religous. If he was a Muslim so what? Martin Luther said I would rather be ruled by a competent turk then an incompetent christian. The issue is Obama’s competence not what his religous beliefs are. If you are going to spout idiocy at least have the decency to not use a name that associates you with the GOP.
    Every time someone like you opens their pie hole we loose another freaking vote. Do you understand that. You are not helping defeat Obama you are hurting.

    BwwhaHahahha….yeah…a 14 year old video vs. one done in May…was the President running for president back then? Geez…this is the best you got? Too funny Art. But, hey, can’t fault you for trying.

  5. Art Gallagher said at 7:20 am on September 19th, 2012:


    Your response is about what I expected. “It was 14 years ago!”

    Except it sounds remarkably like what Obama said on the trail in 2008 and in Charlotte two weeks ago. “So everyone has a shot!”

    And no, this is not the best we’ve got. Stay tuned.

  6. Proud Republican said at 7:44 am on September 19th, 2012:

    With four Americans murdered and dragged through the streets by muslims and riots in dozens of world capitals, I’d say that the fact that we have a muslim president who is sanitizing our CIA/FBI/military to appease these lunatics and hosting Muslim Brotherhood reps at the White House while ignoring our ally Netanyahou is not only relevant, is essential to remind people. And TR, do you have a problem with Muslims? I’m not saying good, bad or indifferent, just stating what Obama himself affirmed when he spoke about “my muslim faith” in an interview with ABC News. And he is a muslim who believes in wealth redistribution.

  7. Poor Salad Boy said at 7:57 am on September 19th, 2012:

    He just doesn’t realize that you just “can’t change the stripes on a zebra” Just because he said it 14 years ago, along with saying it to Joe The Plumber and various other incantations, Obummer is what he is, a redistributionist, aka a Socialist.

    Beyond that, Romney’s comments were the truth, the reality of what the modern Democrats have built, a “gimme society” of moochers who are dependent on Big Gubmint and thus lean heavily towards voting for Dumbocrats, which keeps them in power.

    It’s no different than the Union Political Donation Slush Funds created by jobs for unions like all of the paving jobs done recently, which leads to union members working and donations coming from union dues.

  8. BTW, Who Was It That Said said at 8:01 am on September 19th, 2012:

    that there is no voter fraud…


    In the words of Salad Boy

    BwwhaHahahha….yeah, right.

    WE THE PEOPLE deserve a vote that is totally defended against fraud. Who is to say that these names could not be used illegally to vote, maybe by someone to vote twice; just like Chicago’s “dead people voting.”

  9. Bob English said at 8:03 am on September 19th, 2012:

    Here is how “redistribution of wealth is going”

    Obama first term: Taxes lower now than they were when he took office due to measures he proposed.

    Current Proposal: Let the Bush tax cuts exprire on incomes over 250k/year. 98% of the people keep their tax cut.

    FYI, sounds like even Romeny realizes that trickle down economics does not work since he did not even attempt try to sell the snake oil that cutting the top rates would benefit the 47%.

  10. @TR said at 8:11 am on September 19th, 2012:

    The issue is about the Muslim In The White House is that he has proven time and time again where his sympathies lie, with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, with comments like “letting NASA reach out to the Muslim world,” and sending Netenyahu packing while going on Letterman and fundraising.

    The Result? A failure to look at the current Mideast in the right frame of mind, leading to the intelligence failure and current disastrous state of affairs there.

  11. Bob English said at 8:27 am on September 19th, 2012:

    BTW…States that have non citizens on its voter roles should target those and work to get them off without poetentially disenfranchising the vast majority of voters that are legally reistered. Those states should not though be sending threatening letters to large groups of people the overwhelming majority of which are legally registered to vote.

    Note though that the voter id laws being passed which require govt issued photo id’s that millions of people do not have are being implemented to stop same day voter impersonation which is extremely rare anywhere. In several instances, states that passed the laws were unable to point to a single case of it ever taking place.

    And while it might seem easy for you and I top jump in the car and go down to motor vehicles, its not so easy for the poor and elderly especially if they don’t drive in the first place. The documentation needed under the new laws is not always something that people have access to. This is basically the reason that the Supreme Court in PA. ordered the lower court to review the states new voter id law.

    Don’t get me wrong, I am all for trying to stop all forms of voter fraud, but it cant be at the expense of disenfranchising tens of millions of legally registered voters.

  12. To The Naive Lil Bobbies Of The World Re: ID's said at 8:57 am on September 19th, 2012:

    As Recently Received Via An Email…

    The owner of the Phoenix Suns basketball team, Robert Sarver, came out strongly opposing AZ’s new immigration laws.

    Arizona ‘s Governor, Jan Brewer,
    Released the following Statement in response to Sarver’s criticism of the new law:

    “What if the owners of the
    Suns discovered that hordes of people were sneaking into games Without paying? What if they had a good idea who the gate-crashers are but the ushers and security personnel were not allowed to ask
    these folks to produce their ticket stubs, thus non-paying attendees couldn’t be ejected. Furthermore, what if Suns’
    ownership was expected to provide those who sneaked in with complimentary eats and drink? And what if, on those days when a gate-crasher became ill or injured, the Suns had to provide free medical care and shelter?”

    I’m a legal American citizen and I must show my ID when I am pulled over by the police, use my department store credit card, show up for a doctor’s appointment, renewing my driver’s license, filling out a credit application, filling out college applications, donating blood, obtaining certain types of prescriptions, when boarding an airplane or using my debit card, especially out of state…


    We as citizens of the USA have to prove who we are EVERY day. Why shouldn’t we have to do so to insure a voting system that is secure?

    Freedom isn’t free and it sure ain’t easy.

    You may now put all of your heads back down in the sand.

  13. Poor Bobbie Boy said at 9:05 am on September 19th, 2012:

    He doesn’t realize that Obummbler reluctantly accepted the extension of the Bush Tax Cuts. So, to use that is another canard.

    Bobbie Boy FORGETS that soon, the American people will be hit hard by the biggest tax increase ever, OBUMMBLER CARE, as well as various other tax increases.

    As well, he forgets that Obummbler wants to redistribute wealth by taxing the rich. THAT’S REDISTRIBUTION BOBBIE BOY

    As to this…

    “FYI, sounds like even Romeny realizes that trickle down economics does not work since he did not even attempt try to sell the snake oil that cutting the top rates would benefit the 47%.”

    You are making an assumption, and maybe an “assie” out of yourself. We’ll see what happens in the next few days regarding that

  14. Right On, Right On said at 9:33 am on September 19th, 2012:


    “The danger comes not with the benefit but with the sense of entitlement. Why do so many people feel Romney will be better at improving the economy and yet still plan to vote for Obama?

    The answer is that they care more about preserving their entitlements than about improving the economy. They have come to rely on political action more than economic growth as the key to their solvency.”

  15. While The Mid East Burns said at 11:01 am on September 19th, 2012:

    Where’s Obama Instead Of Meeting With Netanyahu?



    A Tower Of $800 Bottles Of Shamepaign????

    Ah, Who Is An Elitist Who Is Out Of Touch With America? That Would Be The Obummbler.

    Most Have Never Had A Bottle Of Shamepaign, Let Alone Seen An $800 Bottle.

    Oh, Almost Forgot This, The Dear Leader Handling Important Business


    While The Following Occurs


    So, Obummbler REALLY IS The Food Stamp President

  16. It Seems That Mother Jones & Carter IV said at 11:46 am on September 19th, 2012:

    said something before knowing the full story?


    Or, were they just looking for headlines to cover up The Obummbler’s Failings?

  17. TR said at 11:47 am on September 19th, 2012:

    He is not a Muslim you idiots he is a liberal. Thats worse. And no I don’t have a problem with Muslims but when you disparage him for being a Muslim it looks to the rest of the world like you do. Which in turn is used to smear the GOP as small minded, stupid bigots.

    But you can not see that. You can not see that running your mouth will actually help get Obama reelected because you are obviously a F—ing MORON.
    I am begging you if you want Obama to loose then SHUT UP.

  18. So Much For The Obummbler Caring About The Middle Class said at 4:22 pm on September 19th, 2012:


    “That’s 2 million more than a previous estimate found, or a 50 percent increase. The average penalty will be nearly $1,200.”

    That, coupled with the cost of Obummercare going up beyond estimates, Obummbler calling the terrorist attack a “protest,” can we believe ANYTHING this failure of a President says?

  19. Bob English said at 9:27 pm on September 19th, 2012:

    TR…as much as I hate to do this to you…..I agree with your last post.

    So much for: Since the individual mandate was a Republican idea, I’m not sure what your problem is with it. Romeny referred to it as a key component of Romneycare. Don’t you think that people who can afford to purchase health insurance and yet intentionally don’t (and rely on everyone else to pay their medical bills when they get sick) should have to pay something/a pentalty?? Thats sounds like the Republican mantra of indiviudal responsiblilty to me. Many Republicans were for it (individual mandate) before they turned agaisnt it when it became part of the Presidents plan.

  20. TR said at 11:07 pm on September 19th, 2012:

    I don’t like you. Do not agree with me. In fact do not even speak to me or look in my general direction as I am off my meds today

  21. TR said at 11:23 pm on September 19th, 2012:

    The individual mandate is not a republican idea. It was a Massachusetts idea. Romney gave the peoples republic of Massachussetts exactly what they wanted. Federalism at work? maybe. In any event it can be argued that what is approriate at the state level is not always appropriate at the federal level.
    The problem with an individual mandate is it robs me of my freedom and it distorts the free market inevitably leading to higher prices which the government will be unable to pay.
    You want personal responsability. If you have the finacial wherewithal to buy insurance and do not then you pay cash or you do not get treated. Simple. No tickee no shirtee. Will some people die. Yes they will. Too bad. Life is not fair and it is not the governments job to make it fair or protect stupid people from their own stupidity. You like mandates I got one lets make everybody by life insurance so that if they die their spouse has enough money to pay the mortgage and send the kids to school. I mean where does it stop.

  22. TR said at 11:29 pm on September 19th, 2012:

    and while I am in a ranting mood let me take my conservative friends to the woodshed about another post in this thread.
    I understand the anger that our borders are porous. That is a bad thing. It aggravates me too.
    What I want to know is how come none of you bitch about the companies that hire illegal immigrants?

  23. Bob English said at 12:43 am on September 20th, 2012:

    TR: If it makes you feel any better, I disagree with most of your other comments. What you said though about not criticizing the Presidents religion or what people think the Presidents religion is, needs to be said more often.

    Regarding not getting treated if you do not have insurance, we both know that would never happen…..eveyone else pays for the people that intentionally do not buy insurance than get sick and end up in or at the hospital. Note that those without insurance who do not go to a doctor end up using the ER’s as their main source of healthcare when they do get sick…. which is extremely expensive.

  24. Rick Ambrosia said at 6:24 am on September 20th, 2012:

    And now…the rest of the story…


  25. @TR said at 7:59 am on September 20th, 2012:

    EXACTLY right about the hiring. It’s just so easy to blame the first thing that lets them in the country.

    Meanwhile, let us who know what’s really happening to our country pray the following is true:


    “The source told WND that highly confidential internal polls conducted by the Obama campaign indicate Obama cannot win re-election, despite public surveys that show him in the lead.

    “The public polls are mostly political,” the source argued. “Obama radicals want Romney supporters to feel discouraged and give up. Truth is that Romney’s winning.”

  26. The Following Is All That Matters Salad Boy said at 8:09 am on September 20th, 2012:

    “because I actually believe in redistribution,”

    But of course, the tool of the Regime, CBS tries to refocus the voters on something else.


  27. Art Gallagher said at 9:03 am on September 20th, 2012:


    What I want to know is how come none of you bitch about the companies that hire illegal immigrants?

    Because I need my grass cut

  28. I Guess Salad Boy Will Disregard This Video As Well said at 9:43 am on September 20th, 2012:

    Redistribution, Collectivism, Union Power, And A De-Emphasis On Democracy. We KNOW What The Dear Leader Is…

    He Can’t Hide His Soul And You Libs Can’t Bury It Either…


    NEW YORK – A 1995 video depicts Barack Obama calling for “democracy with a small ‘d,’” while pushing a society based on collectivism and “common good.”

    In the video unearthed by KleinOnline, Obama hails unions and collective bargaining as encapsulating the societal “common good” of which he speaks.

    Obama urges society to collectively move “forward” – a word that would later serve as his 2012 campaign slogan.

    Obama was speaking in an Aug. 11, 1995 interview pushing his just published book, “Dreams From My Father.” At the time, Obama was a community organizer planning to launch a political career.

    Obama tells the interviewer the “best part” of the dream of his “African father and white American mother,” was the “notion that we collectively can decide on our fate.”


    He continued: “That things like technological change, things like mass media, things like the market are all subject to our control. That we can make decisions for better or for worse and continue to move forward and progress.”

    Obama was asked whether the collective meant “us” or “those of us who own the major media and other corporate entities.”


    He replied, “You know, I think in the end it does have to be a broad us. It has to be democracy with a small ‘d.’”

    Obama explained what he meant by democracy, laying out a “common good” that includes unions.

    “I think that recapturing the spirit that existed not just in the civil-rights movement but in the union organizing movement, in the populous movement. I think there is a running thread; one of the better angels of our nature in this country which has been the notion that, you know, we can sit around the table and find common ground and make democracy work in the way that it should be working.”

    He continued, “It’s not popular right now to say that, and to believe in sort of a common good, but I think that notions of a common good are the glue that hold our society together and make democracy possible.”

    The interviewer then asked Obama whether he is “willing to stake your political career on your common ground?”


    “That’s the core of my faith,” Obama replied.

    Or This


    Or, How About This?


    And Then There Is This


    And Of Course, This:


    No, Salad Boy Is More Interested In A Name That He Can Attack & Use That To Distract People From The Real Issues With The Dear Leader.

    All The While, Lil Bobbie Boy Likes To Dance Around Questions & Answers

    Really anonymous idiot??? Now we’re all the way back to ’95??/LOL…good one. I really don’t care what your name is AI..just knowing that you’re a coward does my hear good.

  31. Rick Ambrosia said at 11:56 am on September 20th, 2012:

    Sorry anonymous idiot…that should read “does my heart good”…knowing you’re just a simpleton coward…I didn’t want to confuse your feeble brain by a simple typo.

  32. Whattsa Matta Salad Boy? said at 12:24 pm on September 20th, 2012:

    You can’t handle the truth about what your Dear Leader is? All you can do is cherry pick the 1005 article to attack on, but so easily dismiss the current nightmares?

    How cowardly convenient for you.

    The Dumbocrats go far back as they want when they want to turn up skeletons, note the attack on Bush about his drinking days, WAY back when.

    What, turnabout is not fair play?

    The truth is that the Lame Street media buried the real truth about Obummer in 2008, now you can’t live with the consequences, both of what he is and what damage he has caused. NOW, The Obummbler’s “Chickens Are Coming Home To Roost.”

    Be A Man And Face It…

    The truth is that is you that are the coward for not wanting to deal with the “Inconvenient Facts” of what Obummer is.

    You are afraid to look in the mirror. Here’s ANOTHER Inconvenient Fact For You


    Tell me, just what do you do when the demons come at night and cause you to lose your mind?

  33. Rick Ambrosia said at 1:22 pm on September 20th, 2012:

    Oh yes, anonymous idiot…another greatly reliable source…Judicial Watch…in their own words…

    “Judicial Watch also provides training and legal services to other conservatives concerning how to effectively use the Freedom of Information Act and other open records laws to achieve conservative goals of accountability and openness in government.”

    Very enlightening on the amount of “conservative” blogs you read…LOL…one more unbiased group of right wing nuts…LOL…you fit right in AI.

  34. Who's The Idiot Now?????????????????? said at 2:40 pm on September 20th, 2012:


    Yet, you again choose to attack the source in order to discredit the truth of the issue.

    You ignore the sad facts of the situation because you have nothing to stand on regarding the ISSUE, so all you are left to do, like Obummer; is attack the source or attack a person, personally.

    It’s the only way you can distract from the truth.

    How sad, the lack of intellectual integrity and thinking capability the morons on the left

  35. Rick Ambrosia said at 3:09 pm on September 20th, 2012:

  36. You See Salad With A Low IQ said at 3:36 pm on September 20th, 2012:

    I gave you the straight on issue about #3 at justice but you bit again. Rather than comment on the issue, side step. That’s the real problem with the cowardly left.

    They have sooooooooooooooooooooo many demons confronting them, that if they talk about the issues, they would surely lose ever time, EVERY time.

    There’s another theory at work too. It’s been said, polled and talked about many times that those on the left are not really happy people.

    So, all they are left with is trying to tear down others so that they are as miserable as themselves.

    Sorry, Salad Boy, you can’t do that with me. My pinky has more guts than you have shown. I intentionally hide my ID first to force the conversation to the issues, and then to drive libs nuts.

    You can’t talk on the issues because you have no defense. You and Bobbie Boy have proven that time and time again.

    We can keep doing this all day bubba, but the fact is you have no defense against most EVERYTHING that I have pointed out in the above linked articles and it is driving you crazy.

    “I’m Lovin It” So, I’m done hanging you out to dry for today. I got a business to build, no thanks or no help needed from BIG GUBMINT.

    I’ll make sure it stays small in case the Obummbler sneaks thru so that he doesn’t tax me on our LLC income.

  37. Bob English said at 8:28 pm on September 20th, 2012:

    I’m starting wonder if anonymous idiot used to get beat up every day in school and have his lunch money stolen by a couple of guys named Rick and Bob??? Maybe thats why he sounds like a little wimp with his “little Ricky” and “Bobbie boy” comments.

  38. Oh, That's Rich Bobbie Boy, Really Rich said at 8:16 am on September 21st, 2012:

    I beat you guys up because YOU guys are the wimps, rarely answering direct questions, and side stepping.

    Beating people on facts is wimpish? Yep, in the Bizzaro Lib World.

    Quite the contrary, Salad Boy is the one that wants to “beat up people,” demanding to know their names so that he can go after a person, rather than an issue.

    Salad Boy likes to take a page out of “Rules For Radicals,” ESPECIALLY Rule #11

    Rule 11: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame.

    I’ve said that about a half dozen times, but I guess you two are too slow to pick up on that.


    Even if I removed the Bobbie Boy and Salad Boy, you will still put on your dancing shoes and Ambrosio ESPECIALLY will still whine about who I am rather than go directly on point.

    The Truth?
