Obama's anti growth agenda
The magician’s trick is deception, based on misdirection and distraction. He draws your attention over here, while he is carrying out the trick over there. President Obama’s economic policy speech last week at Knox College in Galesville, Ill. was a classic case of such misdirection, distraction, and deception.Voters are no longer buying Obama's dog food. Probably the biggest mistake he made in the speech was suggest that the scandals that have been revealed in the last few months are "phony." That enraged the victims who were back in front of the cameras saying that the deaths they experienced in their families were not phony. So, instead of talking about his economic message people were talking about the scandals he wanted to make go away.
He talked a lot about championing the middle class, a ploy he learned from Saul Alinsky, while all his policies have been trashing the middle class. He talked a lot about economic growth, while all his policies have been trashing economic growth. That is because the trick he is carrying out is to deceive you into supporting an Americanized version of his leftist ideology, which inherently trashes economic growth and the middle class.
For Barack Obama, the whole purpose of his public life is to foist the leftist ideology of his father on a mesmerized American public. He uses the middle class to achieve this goal like a cheap date, dazzling her with big talk of economic growth, which he has no intention of ever delivering.
The truth is Obama disdains economic growth and the middle class, because both are the progenitors of financial and political independence. What he treasures is the neediness of government dependency, which is the progenitor of a political machine, trading government handouts for votes.
Obama said in his speech he is for “Good jobs. A better bargain for the middle class and folks working to join it. An economy that grows from the middle out.” So where has that been for the last 5 years that he has been President?
What we have seen instead is middle class incomes declining for Obama’s entire Presidency. Middle class incomes are down the equivalent of a month’s pay a year, with no turnaround to come back in sight under Obama. As the Wall Street Journal reported on July 23, “Median incomes typically fall during recessions. But the striking fact of the Obama economy is that median real household income has fallen even during the recovery.”
