Obama to America: "Spend! Spend! Spend! Spend! Spend!"

In ringing tones, President Obama’s message to America last night was clear: “Spend! Spend! Spend! Spend! Spend!” And how will we do this? “Borrow! Borrow! Borrow! Borrow! Borrow!” Borrow for a car! Borrow for a house! Borrow for college! Save nothing! We can have guns, butter, free education, the cure for cancer, everything! Economics, the dismal science is dead! Scarcity is a thing of the past!

Even better, President Obama taught us that Americans invented the car!. I guess that was before we had 57 states? God Bless the President who rewrites history!

Seventy-five years ago, the corrupt populist governor of Louisiana, Huey Long, gave his famous “Every Man a King” speech. I thought you might want to look at it. The thematic similarities between his speech and Obama's are very interesting. I’ll post the video in a separate post above. I yet again learned in the school of hard knocks, that the nasty habit that Blogger has of eating my entire post when a video is added has not been corrected.

FACT CHECK: Obama's emphasis on education (rather than knowledge) ends up as a joke on him. Despite 20 years of education at some of the nation's most prestigious schools, Obama's speech contained mistake after mistake after mistake.
