    1. "President Obama appeared to take a new jab Wednesday at likely Republican opponent Mitt Romney -- and his wealth.

    2. In discussing government support for schools, Obama said:

    "Somebody gave me an education. I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Michelle wasn't."

    3. Obama and aides figure to spotlight Romney's wealth repeatedly as they debate what he calls very different visions for the future."
    Obama: I wasn't born with 'silver spoon'


    So...what is the political import....that because Romney was born wealthy, somebody else was able to offer him an education???

    Could the teleprompter-President be so tone deaf that he doesn't realize that "Somebody gave me an education" is exactly the same as the situation in which Romney found himself???


    Doesn't this ...I almost called the President a 'bonehead'....guy realize that "Somebody gave me an education" means, rather, that everybody in the United States was born with a silver spoon in their mouth???

    'Somebody' gave each of them an education.

    The real difference is that we know who paid for Romney's education.
    Obama won't reveal who paid for his.

    I wonder why......don't you?

    i love when the o/p intentionally misses the point of a statement just so she can go off on an obama-deraged rant.

    fauxrage is so entertaining

    At least we know who paid for Romney's education... who again was it that paid for Obama's Ivy League education?

    Mitt went into business for himself and did well. Bravo for him.

    Boo Hoo on all the little Neo-Marxists who have a problem with that

    [From "When things get bad in small town Pennsylvania, they sink more deeply into their God and their guns" to "Cutting the deficit in half" our "Chicago Jesus" is going to get vetted this time. "By his works we shall know him".]

    "As has often been commented, all of Barack Obama's promises come with an expiration date. They range from the relatively minor to the truly majestic such as his promise that he would not raise taxes for those families earning under $250,000 a year and that he would cut the deficit in half.

    He peddled a world of wonders that would flow from passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The fabrications started early -- even in the very name of the act. Patients are not protected: not only will they not be able to keep their current plans if they like them, as he promised (businesses have been dropping company plans in reaction to Obamacare), but their care will fall under the control of the Independent Payment Advisory Board that may just decide that various medical procedures are not covered -- and, incidentally, the people on this board are "unelected." Where is the Patient Protection?"

    Try to use words with the precision that I do.

    "fauxrage"

    Where is there any rage?

    Perhaps you are enraged due to the gaffe that Obama made....or that you were fooled into voting for him....
    ...but I evince no rage.

    Would I be 'enraged' by the President not understanding what he was saying? Don't be silly.

    The OP laughed at the fool who wrote those words for the President.
    You see that....don't you?


    Try to be more accurate in the future.
