Obama Uses Same Lines from 2010, 2011...
Obama 2010: "It's time for colleges and universities to get serious about cutting their own costs.
Obama 2012: "Colleges and universities have to do their part by working to keep costs down." ***
Obama 2010: "And we should continue the work by fixing our broken immigration system."
Obama 2011: "I strongly believe that we should take on, once and for all, the issue of illegal immigration."
Obama 2012: "I believe as strongly as ever that we should take on illegal immigration."
Obama 2010: "We face a deficit of trust." Obama 2012: "I've talked tonight about the deficit of trust . . ."
Obama 2010: "We can't wage a perpetual campaign."
Obama 2012: "We need to end the notion that the two parties must be locked in a perpetual campaign."***
The good news is that after a couple years these sorts of speeches begin to write themselves.
Lots of military; one sentence on Obamacare - Weekly Standard
Interesting juxtaposition: President Obama started off and ended up with salutes to the U.S. military--and, as far as I could count, spent only one sentence defending the signal legislative achievement of his presidency, Obamacare.
Right now, Warren Buffett pays a lower tax rate than his secretary … Tax reform should follow the Buffett rule: If you make more than $1 million a year, you should not pay less than 30 percent in taxes … Now, you can call this class warfare all you want. But asking a billionaire to pay at least as much as his secretary in taxes? Most Americans would call that common sense.(Boortz) "Here we have a benefit flowing to Obama from our government education system. We have government educated voters in this country who couldn’t tell you the difference between a profit and a profit margin if their refundable tax credits depended on it. In fact, they don’t understand the difference between a standard tax credit and a refundable tax credit – but that’s another story.Let’s be blunt (not difficult for me). The statement that “Warren Buffet pays a lower tax rate than his secretary” is an intentional, premeditated lie. This statement was aimed at government educated idiots predisposed by three years of Obama class warfare rhetoric to hate the wealthy. Here are two absolute and profound truths for you to digest:
- Warren Buffet pays EXACTLY the same tax rate as his secretary pays on the same taxable earned income.
- Warren Buffet’s secretary pays EXACTLY the same tax rate on her capital gains as does Warren Buffet.Look closely at Obama’s statement. He says that Buffet pays a lowe TAX rate than his secretary, not a lower INCOME TAX rate. The point is that Obama is paying an entirely different tax in Obama’s scenario. He’s paying capital gains taxes, she’s paying income taxes. The capital gains tax rate is fixed at 15% .. for both Buffet AND his secretary. The income tax rate ranges from 15% to 35%, and both Buffet and his secretary will pay the same rate on the same level of taxable earned income.So now we have Obama saying that the rich – those with income of over one million a year – should pay no less than 30% in taxes. Here we have Obama calling for a 30% capital gains tax rate. This would be devastating for our economy. If you want to talk about chasing wealth overseas – a 30% capital gains tax rate would do it."

Monica Crowley: “Alinsky Dedicated His Book to Lucifer… And Obama Taught Alinsky” - Gateway Pundit (video at site)
Pure evil. Last night Monica Crowley told Bill O’Reilly that Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer… And, Obama taught Alinsky tactics to university students.CNN Bypasses Obama-Alinsky Ties, but Links Tea Party to Alinsky - Media Research Center
Barack Obama taught the principles of Saul Alinsky in Chicago. Notice the flow chart indicating the flow of money and power out of productive businesses (“CORP”) and into the political class (“MAYOR”). The heading at the top reads “POWER ANALYSIS”. The sub-heading reads “RELATIONSHIPS BUILD ON SELF INTEREST”. The symbol on the arrow between “CORP” and “MAYOR” is the “$” sign.
Saul Alinsky came up with the idea of power analysis, which looks at relationships built on self-interest between corporations, banks and utilities. Barack Obama taught students in Chicago the Alinsky Principles.
CNN's Soledad O'Brien would not brand Saul Alinsky as a leftist radical, and neither would she say President Obama was influenced by his writings – but she had no problem tying Alinsky's controversial beliefs to the Tea Party movement on Monday's Starting Line. As a community organizer in Chicago, Barack Obama mirrored the tactics Alinsky laid out in his book "Rules for Radicals" – which featured a tribute to the devil Lucifer, "the very first radical." GOP candidate Newt Gingrich has recently connected Obama's beliefs with Alinsky's, sparking a media debate over the matter.
O'Brien wanted to set the story straight on Monday, and delivered a neutral take on the controversial community organizer. "He spent his life helping minorities in poor neighborhoods exert their political force by organizing them to get to the polls," she stated. Then she hastily dismissed a connection between Obama and Alinsky. "President Obama has never said that he was influenced by Alinsky. In fact, he was 10 years old when Alinsky passed away." It was a rather brief dismissal of evidence that Obama's Chicago mentors learned at a school founded by Alinsky.
Barack Obama - A Community Organizer Grandmaster of the Alinsky Method - Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals
"Obama is not incompetent in allowing agitation and hostilities to grow in this nation. It's his plan for radical change.
This is what Saul Alinsky taught and what the self proclaimed Community Organizer Barack Obama is practicing on the whole nation. He is not out to unite but to "rub raw" the resentments of the people and fan their latent hostilities and divide the nation following Saul Alinsky's teachings. Obama is a revolutionary out to destroy America as we knew it. The words of Saul Alinsky on the role of the community organizer from Alinsky's book, Rules for Radicals.
""'The organizer's first job is to create the issues or problems,' and 'organizations must be based on many issues.' The organizer 'must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act. . . . An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent.'"
