OBAMA, THE 'FREEBIE KING'
March 21, 2012
Does Alexandra Pelosi, daughter of former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi know what she has done to her mom's precious Democratic Party?
Ms. Pelosi has just produced a mini-documentary on the welfare state that should seriously jeopardize Barack Obama's Presidency ... forever! While interviewing various recipients of government handouts in front of the New York City Welfare office, she has really unearthed the true results of Obama's Nanny State!
As expected, the majority of the recipients were black, and made the predictable remarks about it being reparations for slavery.
Another, maybe not so surprising note showed every interviewee saying they are voting for Obama because he will give money to them with no strings attached. It's free! One man called it "Obama bucks!"
Does Alexandra Pelosi realize the weapon she has unleashed?
In an interview with Bill Maher on March 16, Alex admitted she received a lot of blow back. The week before she went to Mississippi and interviewed a number of toothless, backwoods rednecks who came across as morons, lacking an IQ of 40, and tried to prove that southerners are racists and most southerners tend to vote Republicans because Republicans are racists.
Yet, by the same token, Alex did say that urban, ethnics tend to vote Democrat because Democrats are the party of "handouts." Urging the audience to "own your party," Pelosi said "freeloading welfare queens" flock to and own the Democratic party! And I thought George Soros owned it!
To come full circle in the Maher interview, Ms. Pelosi went on to attack politicians in general who dole out $700 billion in defense spending and only one-tenth of that for food stamps.
The interview, which can be viewed here, concluded with a very profound statement. Said Ms. Pelosi: "We have to address the fact that this is why Democrats are loosing ground, and this is a problem in America. The Entitlement culture has gotten so big that we are loosing our own people (to the GOP)."
According to Ms. Pelosi, HBO balked at showing the second video. Nevertheless, to her credit and Bill Maher's, they pushed back and showed the video anyway, and Ms. Pelosi had a number of intelligent things to say about the entitlement culture that goes with it.
The reaction of Maher's audience, largely Lefties was interesting, catcalls and laughter during the clips of the white Mississippians and dead silence after the welfare recipients video underlines what both Pelosi and Maher said.
We've gotten to the point where the extremes, manipulated by cynical politicians, are driving the narrative to the detriment of the majority.
It's a pity that neither Pelosi nor Maher were willing to look at a lot of the divisive and even racist rhetoric the Obama Administration and its surrogates are using as one of the prime culprits, but let's take the small victories where we can.
Truth be told, Newt Gingrich was right when he said in one of the GOP debates last January, that President Obama has put more people on the government dole than all the other Presidents, Roosevelt, LBJ and Jimmy Carter combined. These handouts have cost Americans dearly and because Obama has come this far to resurrect the Welfare Queen, we can boldly crown him the "Freebie King."
We believe that the Constitution of the United States speaks for itself. There is no need to rewrite, change or reinterpret it to suit the fancies of special interest groups or protected classes.
