    You're Robert Gibbs????

    Let us recall for a moment:


    According to his hind-ass, some of us are making "enough money". How dare we want more. How dare we make more. How dare we want to have a better life for ourselves. Then, in the same breathe, he turns around and admits that us "producers" (my word, not his) should keep right along "producing".

    Turns out...He went off script for this little utterance of redistributive truth. :lol:

    I swear...Some people are living proof that sometimes the after birth does live and thrive outside the womb:

    Link: Via HotAir: Obama: “I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money”
    (snip)
    Note the term: "...fulfilling their responsibility to help grow our economy."
    Oh I get it. Now it's our responsibility, ay? What about YOUR responsibility mr president? To ALL Americans,...To incentivize small business? To promote economic growth via free markets that are allowed to grow without being punished by government?

    Nevermind dude....This is WAY over your alinsky-tained kool-aid drinkin' head.


    Now, keep that in mind, when you read this:

    (snip)
    Read the whole thing at the link....


    So, let's get this straight....
    Gibbs makes $172,200, which is below that magic $250,000 number that obama loves to toss around. And, as noted in the article, the average family income is somewhere around $55,000 a year.

    So, I think we can finally say, that the figure $250,000 IS indeed the amount obama (and others) have in their head, when he says that at some point "you've made enough money".

    "I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money. But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if you’re providing a good product or providing good service."

    Ah the typical pseudo-con rant based on (HotAir? Really, right up their with Brietphart), well, 11 words taken completely out of context of the very next sentence.

    So yes lets review: You got nothing.

    Awww...the typical left-wing dance....attacking the source of the vid (knowing full well you could find it anywhere), while ignoring the actual words the president said.

    Funny. Dumb, but funny.

    Here you go hon....
    Remarks by the President on Wall Street Reform in Quincy, Illinois | The White House

    Right from the man's own website:
    (snipped for context)

    Read the whole thing at the link, if you'd like.

    But, no matter the source of the quote, he said what he said.

    It is YOUR responsibility to help grow the economy. But, don't make too much money doing it.
    In spite of high taxes...
    In spite of high unemployment...
    In spite of high gas prices...
    YOU must continue to make money, so government can take it from you...and redistribute it elsewhere, as THEY see fit. But, just don't make too much, because too much means you're an evil rich person. I mean, just because you may have once been down on your luck, accepting govt assistance, and then got a good job, climbed the corporate ladder, and can now provide for your self and your family, that doesn't mean government is going to let you off the hook.

    They cared more for you when you were poor.
    Now, they just want your money. But don't make too much.

    It's patriot, according to Biden.
    Remember?

    Well the right doesn't want you to make to much money either, so I don't see why this would be sticking a dagger in anyone in particular.

    They never give you a tax break, it is always for the rich. And they attack Unions because they make a living wage and benefits for their families. The attack teachers the same way. And they oppose a minimum wage that gets young workers more money.

    I really have to say, they don't want you making to much money.
