(Video & Audio) Here is one of Obama's greatest gaffs... trying to impose his "class warfare" tactics on a subject he commands! On my FaceBook, a young detractor wrote this (Posted by Religio-Political Talk):
Okay, several things. Obama didn't make some heated overly assaulting attack on Meh Romney as you might think coming from the GOP's reaction to this. Yes it was directed at Mitt and yeah, Obama stretched the truth on his upbringing, but no one cares, or at least no one should. The fact politicians do these things really isn't news and I can think of plenty of other issues that should be discussed instead of this. OK so what, this makes Obama look a bit silly, but whats more ridiculous is how much this is being blown up by FOX and how Medved seems so outraged about it all. The best part was when Romney was talking to Steve Doocy about what Obama said. It was all fair and fine until he started making comments towards Obama. "This is a time for us to solve problems, this is not a time to be attacking people." Its so hypocritical its comical. I'm Happy for Romney and his success as a first gen college grad, but the whole outrage over this is dumb.
You are right, sorta, when you said "no one cares." Just the lemmings do not care (http://youtu.be/woBC5b3Ti0M).
Thinking people however, know the class-warfare rhetoric that the Left
espouses is dangerous to truth, or as you say, "stretched the truth."
This "I feel good" policy of the left (class-warfare, affirmative
action, diversity, etc) placing "equality" as their highest standard,
instead of liberty, is why Obama can "stretch the truth" as he does in
order to promote "fairness." One of my favorite quotes is this, and it
sets up the next audio/video well:
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." ~ CS Lewis Or, as Reagan quipped: "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"
So many may not care about the hyperbole or stretching of the truth from Obama (his time in a racist church, his grandfathers WWII history, his mothers fight with insurance companies, his covering up time in college, whatever) to make policy sound good, but I prefer people who do care about the big issues (like mentioned below) to the small... they all paint a picture of why we must reject the "feel good" politics of the left: http://www.mrctv.org/videos/affirming-feelings-not-truth
