Obama Claims To Represent The Entire Country

From an unquestioning Associated Press:

Obama: As president you represent entire country

By MATTHEW DALY | September 19, 2012

NEW YORK (AP) — Rebuking Mitt Romney, President Barack Obama said Tuesday that Americans are not "victims" and that voters want to make sure that their president is "not writing off big chunks of the country."

Obama’s remarks came after a secretly taped and newly released video showed the Republican presidential nominee describing "47 percent of the people" as Obama supporters who depend on government and believe they are victims.

"My expectation is that if you want to be president, you have to work for everyone, not just for some," Obama said in a taping of the "Late Show" with David Letterman.

And yet Mr. Obama has governed and now he is campaigning on a platform entirely devoted to class warfare against ‘the rich.’ And the rich are anyone who makes more than $200,000 a year.

In fact, as that recently discovered 1998 audio clip shows, Mr. Obama is a socialist who wants to take the property of the so-called rich and give it to his constituents.

It was Obama’s first response to the Romney video, which roiled Romney’s campaign and put him on the defensive about his views about nearly half the nation. The president appeared on the TV show before a night of fundraising in New York City…

Again, we question the timing of this tape’s re-surfacing. After all, what would be a better place to exploit it, then with the low information voters in the Letterman viewing audience?

"There are not a lot of people out there who think they are victims" or simply entitled, Obama said.

And we’re supposed to believe that it Mr. Romney who is out of touch.

Obama said people understand that the presidential candidates will make mistakes on the campaign trail. He said that includes one he regrets from 2008, when audio from one of his own private fundraisers had him saying that some residents of depressed rural areas get bitter and "cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them."

He regrets that he got caught.

Having said that, Obama added: "One thing I’ve learned as president is that you represent the entire country." …

So sayeth the man whose campaign has written off the white working class.

The president and Letterman… exchanged compliments on their appearances. "You look good," Obama said…

In fact, Mr. Obama revealed that he weighs "about 180" pounds. Which is very important information for the American voter. Unlike, say, his views on the redistribution of property.

He ended the night at a fundraiser hosted by pop star Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z at the rap mogul’s 40/40 Club. About 100 supporters paid $40,000 per person to attend the party, which was expected to raise about $4 million for Obama’s campaign and Democratic Party organizations.

Beyoncé, dressed in a red dress, said she and her husband support Obama because he shares their vision for America

Is that so? How much of their income do Mr. and Mrs. Beyoncé redistribute?

Meanwhile, we have this development from Fox News:

Conservative Student Denied Entry to Michelle Obama Speech

Todd Starnes | Sep 18, 2012

A University of Florida student said he was denied entry into a campus rally featuring Michelle Obama because he was wearing a John McCain t-shirt.

Matt Pesek told the website Campus Reform that he had a ticket for the event but was turned away while he was standing in line. An Obama staffer allegedly told the student that he would not be allowed inside because the First Lady’s speech was for “supporters only.” …

“I was waiting in line wearing a ‘Gators for McCain’ shirt when a guy (representing the Obama campaign) comes up to me to just intimidate me,” he told Campus Reform. “(He then) asks me for my ticket saying…this is an event with only Obama supporters.”

Pesek said he offered to turn his shirt inside but was still denied entry.

A university official told the website that Obama officials could refuse entry to whoever they wanted because it was a private event. But it was being held on a public university campus — paid for by taxpayers…

Pesek said the university was very involved in promoting the First Lady’s visit. He said the student body received an email instructing students on where to pick up tickets for the event

“They [the university] certainly advertised it to students… I didn’t hear about the rally from the Obama campaign. I heard about it from people at the university.”

Apparently, the rule for the FLOTUS is different for the rule for the POTUS. The FLOTUS doesn’t even have to even try to pretend to represent the entire country.

    The intellectual disconnect is growing every day.

    The problem is we’ve long since passed the tipping point and it’s just now becoming obvious.

    Why be productive when you can sit back, not be targeted, and get your freebies?

    It’s just like being at home and getting an allowance again… what’s wrong with that?

    Let’s put this in the terms, that the Unicorn party can understand. If lions are the king of beasts, then we must slay them. Then.
    The rest of us will become jackals, searching for, and eating everything, even our own. Just to get by. Not buy’n it. The higher order is not government. The lions are everyday people with a vision for profit, creating jobs and doing the work that most union members, will not. Life isn’t fair. Boo-hoo! Get over it. It comes to the quick, the hard working and Freedom from government. That’s right, I built it!

    Only in Washington D.C. can a person keep 47% of the citizens on the plantation, and still claim to represent “all” of the American people.

    And don’t underestimate the ability of Republicans to totally and completely fumble the ball away on this one.
    1. They won’t claim that 47% dependency is a total embarrassment to democrats.
    2. They won’t make the argument that democrats are at ease with that number, and want it higher.
    3. They won’t boldly assert that 1/2 the population is supporting the other 1/2.
    4. They won’t DARE claim that this is the result of democrat socialist policies.
    5. They won’t allude to the fact that we are on the fast – track to being Greece.
    6. They won’t make the claim that redistributive policies, that obama supports, lead to this disastrous percentage.
    7. They won’t make the link between the democrats saying, “Those parasites who don’t want to purchase health insurance!” are not even close to the parasites who get FREE health insurance and everything else they want.
    8. They won’t make the claim that the percentage of dependent people on gov’t is even higher b/c there are so many undocumented people we don’t know about. (thanks to democrats)
    9. They won’t make the claim that THE WORLD IS DEPENDENT upon the U.S. taxpayer. We don’t just have welfare people, we have welfare countries and continents that are dependent upon us.
    10. They won’t bother to mention that the number of people that are dependent has skyrocketed under obama. Only Gingrich rightfully called him “The food-stamp president.”

    Glad I am voting for Ron Paul. I don’t know how I could sleep knowing I voted for another Liberal Republican / Conservative side-kick combination. –same ‘ol system gonna be in place in November, no matter what, it looks like.
