    by directorblue @ Doug Ross @ Journal: EXPLAINED: What the president means when he says we must "grow from the middle out"

    When the president first uttered the following, I hadn't really understood what he meant:

    This country doesn’t just succeed when just a few are doing well at the top. It succeeds when the middle class gets bigger. Our economy doesn’t grow from the top down -- it grows from the middle out.

    We don’t believe that anybody is entitled to success in this count


    That is, until Biff Spackle sent me this montage. @ http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-gzOawyyhCHM/UHBWJyic3ZI/AAAAAAAA6pI/Aol625c49Dc/s1600/121006-flotus.jpg


    Then it all became clear.

    Oh, and as you could have predicted, "The First Food Czar’s School Lunchroom Mandate is Failing." Surprise: The First Food Czar’s School Lunchroom Mandate is Failing | Babalú Blog

    The whole top down thing is a myth anyway... we only do good as a nation when we all have work.

    As it is... we do not all have work, and the end is nowhere in sight.

    Plus, punishing the rich will not help. It only hurts us as a nation.

    Oh don't worry, many understands what Obama means he says that, and MANY don't want his warped "visions" of transforming our Country...He should move to a country he and the misses could be proud of

    It makes perfect sense if you keep it in the perspective of leading from behind.

    Fat people grow from the middle out.. it takes a lot of the wrong stuff going in.
    In the end they end up unhealthy, have bad looks and a lot of shit.

    Lets not feed the country anymore more of his shit. Vote Romney.
