From the article:

Obama's Words:

“there is a certain crowd in Washington who, for the last few decades, have said, let’s respond to this economic challenge with the same old tune. “The market will take care of everything,” they tell us. If we just cut more regulations and cut more taxes–especially for the wealthy–our economy will grow stronger. Sure, they say, there will be winners and losers. But if the winners do really well, then jobs and prosperity will eventually trickle down to everybody else. And, they argue, even if prosperity doesn’t trickle down, well, that’s the price of liberty.

Now, it’s a simple theory. And we have to admit, it’s one that speaks to our rugged individualism and our healthy skepticism of too much government. That’s in America’s DNA. And that theory fits well on a bumper sticker. (Laughter.) But here’s the problem: It doesn’t work. It has never worked. (Applause.) It didn’t work when it was tried in the decade before the Great Depression. It’s not what led to the incredible postwar booms of the ’50s and ’60s. And it didn’t work when we tried it during the last decade. (Applause.) I mean, understand, it’s not as if we haven’t tried this theory."

Far left revisionism at it's best.

Nevermind the fact that the US was the only major state with functioning factories and essentially supplied the world with everything during those golden years and once places like Japan and Germany were able to stand on their own the US economy withered and died in the 70s...

Are you some kind of robo-poster software running on some RW thinktank server? It's almost like you just randomly pick from a dozen pre-programed responses that address nothing specific about the post you are replying to. You are boring and lack even the most fundamental qualities that would separate you, a living human, from a buggy piece of software programed by the lowest bidder.

President Obama’s Kansas speech is a remarkable document. In calling for more government controls, more taxation, more collectivism, he has two paragraphs that give the show away. Take a look at them.

well, that is not the first think he is telling the truth in what he wants to do. He did it always - starting from the 2008 campaign.

He lied tactically, but he never lied strategically - the aim of fundamentally transforming America was always told.

But nobody wanted to listen :D

Calling corporate socialism ineffective and an injustice is not socialism. Did you even read that? Do you like socialism for the rich?

He is a low life motherfucking liar.

The Federal Reserve Board was adopted in 1913..

Prior to is adoption the US Treasury was used by the "progressives" to intervene and manipulate the economy.

More lies from the rw's.

Why do rw's think lies help their agenda?

Oh yeah, because other sheeple rw's will follow right along behind, their empty little heads bobbing up and down.

Carry on.

What is the lie, Dudley? Are you disputing Forbes' article as a complete fabrication?

Or maybe you're just embarrassed that you're backing the most divisive, manipulative liar in modern American presidential history?

Revisionism? It's history. Look it up.
lol.

I guess the Democrat part really does appeal to the low information voter.

So Medicare and medicaid are free markets?

SS is free markets?

Welfare, housing, Government student loan's all free markets?

Mass subsidies are all free markets?

87 billion a month dumped on the rich is free markets (under Obama)

Mass bail-outs and stimulus for the top 1% is free markets (also done under Obama).

Each one of these things was sold as a way to fix a problem, yet here Obama is telling everyone how bad things sucks, and oddly does not hold Government planning responsible, no instead he hold "free markets" 100%^ accountable.

Obama is a dangerous person, he ignores the constitution that was put in place to keep power hungry leaders away from too much power. Obama also hates evolution, because that is what free markets are, meaningful strong good business thrives while poorly run, bad ideas die, clearing all malinvestment.

Harding is remembered as one of the worst Presidents, strange how he got UE down to 2%... FDR is remembered as the great President, odd how he had UE of 25% and has 12 years of the great depression.

History is simply not on your side.

No one argues that "investing" from Government can't or won't create a boom, it will... It's the cost that you have to consider. The deficits, the debt and the mass malinvestment. Look where we are today, not 1$ of our deficit or debt is due to privet sector, it's 100% Government's doing... No amount of searching through history will change that fact. All that has happened is the predictions of Government programs imploding with debts and deficits while providing a weak, bad, poor product has turned out to be fully true and historically documented.

OK so you can not contradict my post.

The parasites, aka the sheeple , will continue to vote for the socialists so long as they continue to promote free lunches and free insurance,

What Obama says didn't work is exactly how America became great. The Great Depression would not had been so great if it had not been for FDR's great society. When we have tried "this theory" it has worked.

By your standards then the rich are parasitic as well for supporting republicans who then go on to give them undeserved tax breaks and tax payer money for jobs they just never seem to get around to creating. Corporate interests, especially banks continue to suck up a bazillion dollars a year from states and the federal government, is that socialism to you or does it have to be poor people and democrats doing it?

Any criminal gang will obtain real economic benefits by looting, stealing and plundering. While their criminal enterprise lasts the benefits are great.
