WHO IS "SOMEBODY?" We've been asking for years!

I just noticed THIS ARTICLE about how Obama took a swipe at Romney...imagine slamming someone because they were born to money as if it's a sin?  What a horribly stupid and bigoted thing to's the info that really caught me:
President Barack Obama took a hard-to-miss shot at presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney on Wednesday, declaring "I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth" as he defended his economic policies in Ohio.
Obama didn't name Romney. He didn't need to. The president and his campaign have worked to make the former Massachusetts governor and millionaire investor's personal finances an issue in the election even as they hammer his economic proposals as giveaways to the rich financed by cutting services to everyone else—like financial aid for college students.
"Somebody gave me an education. I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Michelle wasn't. But somebody gave us a chance," Obama said in a speech at Lorain County Community College in Elyria, Ohio. "Right now we have two competing visions of our future, and the choice could not be clearer," said the president. "Should we settle for an economy where a few people do really well and then a growing number are struggling to get by?"

Think he'll EVER TELL US WHO GAVE HIM THAT EDUCATION? $$$$   Boy, he won't tell us, but he sure uses the fact, huh?

His comments will be relevant, maybe, when he tells who paid for his education. Until then it just more of his BS, divide , class warfare, racial warfare, gender warfare.

He'd better hope he gets in at least one more vacation for Mooochele before November cause it's all over then . Maybe George will pay for his vacations or who ever paid for his schooling. YA RECKON!

Z said...

there is the list of different input.

SOme say that his finances have never shown record of the payments for student loans.
Many say Dr Khalid Al-Mansour.
Many say "scholarship"
Some say "Grandma"

Ticker, I'm guessing whoever paid for his Columbia AND Harvard educations probably was the one who wangled the publisher to publish TWO autobiographies of a young guy who never did anything enough to be asked to write an autobiography,too. Ya think? :-)

How about Obo Wan T-Bagger over your nostrils?

FairWitness said...

Wouldn't you love for Romney to respond this way? I would kill to hear Mitt Romney turn this around on him and demand to know exactly who DID PAY FOR that Ivy League education you were given, Mr. President! :1D

Brooke said...

I've said it before... Every time Obama tries to paint Romney as the 'evil rich guy', he should say, "Hell yeah, I'm rich, and who better to fix the economy?"

A great question we would all like to know the answer to. Was it Soros??? Or was it some other puppet master?

Z said...

OBi what?

Brooke and FW: I don't admire Newt but I'd have honestly paid good money for a 3 hours debate with him and Obama :-)
Romney doesn't have it in him to be very mean; he always comes off looking uncomfortable, as if it's not his nature, when he slams Obama.
Obama, on the other hand, gets that revolting nasty look on his face, so despicable, every time he has to say the word REPUBLICAN..Interesting juxtapositions, I think.

Most jerks won't see it, sadly.

conservativesonfire...we can't say SOROS here at geeeZ without one of the libs coming back with KOCH BROTHERS :-) Wait for it!
Of course, Soros' ties are mostly covered by the media... and Americans aren't aware.

Everything I've read about Romneys history is pretty admirable. Something that I can really identify with too.

Despite his family's wealth....he lived very frugally and in a basement apartment in his early school and grad school. While he was married to Ann...he / she raised 5 kids.

His father never gave him a dime. That's what Mormons do....require that you do missionary work....and make it on your own.

He's the epitome of hard work and success that he earned by following his core beliefs. According to his tax returns....he's tithed more money that any politician.

That asshole Biden donated about $300 bucks to charity...and Mitch..about $2,000,000!

Which proves that dems are lying cheap rat bastards that think that voting in "unemployment benefits, unearned income tax credits, food stamps" are their contribution to "charity".

This country of at war. Period. Don't fool yourselves into thinking that it's anything but.

One major issue that will never be resolved.....take a look....Zimmerman . Martin.

His father never gave him a dime.
"We were happy, studying hard. Neither one of us had a job, because Mitt had enough of an investment from stock that we could sell off a little at a time. The stock came from Mitt’s father. When he took over American Motors, the stock was worth nothing. But he invested Mitt’s birthday money year to year—it wasn’t much, a few thousand, but he put it into American Motors because he believed in himself. Five years later, stock that had been $6 a share was $96 and Mitt cashed it so we could live and pay for education."

The fringe right, fish in a barrel.

Good thing Ted Kennedy isn't around to take offense.

Maybe Jay Rockefeller will.

Ahhhh...success, smarts and planning...everything a whore demrat is offended by. work....smarts. I'd guess that you think Zuckerberg is a whore too? Of course you would....a privileged Jew boy from a wealthy family
( same as a Mormon ) that made him live in a coed dorm for the hardest two years of his life...before he moved to Palo Alto to acquire a $7,000.000 crib.


Z said...

Actually, Mitt's father obviously willed money to him! Who wouldn't? They were RICH and that's not a sin and it's not an offense.

And his father didn't die as rich as some expected, apparently. He, and I believe his siblings, put the money into the George Romney Foundation. Mitt didn't take any of it.

Impertinent, your comment is incoherent.

."Somebody gave me an education. I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Michelle wasn't. But somebody gave us a chance," Obama said in a speech at Lorain County Community College in Elyria, Ohio

Well, there you have it!

Somebody GAVE them both an education, so why shouldn't we, who have EARNED our livelihood GIVE it away to those who haven't?

I'm surprised that he even admitted that it was given to them, though, since obviously they, and the deluded masses who adore him, seem to think that he really IS the Messiah.

"... a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany ... and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama" - Barack Obama Lebanon, New Hampshire.
January 7, 2008.

" I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment - this was the time - when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals. Thank you, God Bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America."

Remarks of Senator Barack Obama
Final Primary Night
Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008
St. Paul, Minnesota

Michelle Obama made a remarkable claim when talking up her husband, President Barack Obama, at a campaign event earlier today in Nashville, Tennessee.

"I am so in," Michelle Obama said toward the end of her remarks. "I am going to be working so hard. We have an amazing story to tell. This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light."

Oops...sorry, Z, I guess I got a little carried away from your question of who is the SOMEBODY who paid for his education, didn't I?

Well, needless to say, we'll probably never find out, just like we'll never find out the truth about everything else to do with his past.

What I don't understand is how in the world anyone in his right mind could vote for the man.

Or, even consider it.

Duck you can't read worth spit. Try reading fool before making more of a fool of yourself than you already are.

The story reads: But he invested Mitt’s birthday money year to year—it wasn’t much, a few thousand,

Guess what fool? It was an investment a few dollars at a time which over a number of years was a few thousand to invest, one year at a time. Now fool tell me what is wrong with that.

My family was not rich but we did much the same. My father received a bonus each year from Eastman.No he was not an executive but a worker who worked shift work for nearly 35 years. With money from his bonuses he invested a bit at a time in Eastman Kodak and then switched it to Eastman Chemical. It was not millions but it was a nice chunk which allowed my folks to buy the little house in NC where they had stayed as guest for a number of years and there enjoy their retirement years. Yes, I had a small amount of stock as well and continue to keep it and will pass it to my daughter.
So fool Duck, now tell me what is wrong with Mitts dad making an investment of a few thousand dollars and it growing into a fortune. Too bad Eastman stock didn't do the same but it is enough.
Go take a reading comprehension course Duck and learn to actually read the FACTS presented instead of making up your own version.

Yes, better a silver spoon than woofing up new dog meat recipes.
What a load .

Liberalmann said...

Yes Jan, somebody 'gave' them a chance in the form of taxes and TAP/PELL grants which help educate our young-something the GOP wants to take away so as in the 50's, only wealthy kids could go to college. You really want to go back to this? You really want to enslave a particular economic class so they have no chance of upward mobility?

Wake up.

Ticker said...

HEY LIBTURD STOP THE LIES. Of course that is all you and your ilk know how to do. The PELL Grants are NOT being taken away. Here is the real story as if it will make any difference in your uninformed lying BS that you spew because you will contiune to lie regardless.

Libturd and the uninformed liberal idiots who claim PEll grants would be taken away by Ryan's Budget plan are simply repeating their Messiahs BS lies.

The problem in Pell grants lies in the $30.7 billion annual appropriation needed to maintain the maximum grant ($5,550). Pell grant funding has had increases and decreases which cause deficits or surpulus over the years since it's origination. It was not a problem then and would not be a problem in the future IF PELL if continued to fund at the present rate. HOWEVER Odummer in his STUMBULUS program put in a host of increases. In past years if there was a shortfall then money was borrowed from the annual appropriations bill of the next year. If a suprulus existed than the dollars were kept in the fund to compensate for borrowing that might occur or had occurred. Under Odummers SUMBULIUS increases there would
be a continual growing shortfall each year after 2013 which was covered by a surplus. This supplement created in 08 and in 2010s stumbulus bill created a mandatory funding source, not funding provided by appropriation.
In 2008, the first year the(NON APPROPRIATION) program was in effect, each student who was eligible for a Pell Grant of any amount received a uniform supplemental award of $490 under the new mandatory funding. In 2010 the amount increased to $690. In 2012, had Congress not modified the program, it would have increased to $1,090.
In the pre-stumbulus act there was a maximum grant of $4,731 at a cost of $16.2 billion). It was increased to $5,550 in 2007 & 2008. Under Ryan's plan that amount would remain the same for perpetuity.
So Libturd and the rest of the liberal 's who are to ignorant to find out the truth, THERE IS NO KILLING OF PELL GRANTS.
It is simply doing away with the entitlement increases created by ODUMMERS stumbulus plan

I don't hear any complaints about JFK and that silver spoon! Or John Kerry who married a silver spoon.

Of course Ronald Reagan didn't come from family wealth did he.

Now, libdud, life doesn't have to be easy, and hard work pays off if you're not a spoiled brat!

My son worked his way through college. Oh the horror, to think one has to do something the hard way!! Well, he did it, and was the better for it.

But then today, the work ethic, and earning your way in life seems to be outmoded. So Dud, you can sit around and pretend people have a right to slide through on the taxpayers dime, but those students aren't learning the most important thing.

Life is what you make of it. If you want the nanny govt. to take care of you, you'll always need a nanny, and your life won't be your own. Too bad you'll never grow up, and you'll always be the bore you are now!

Z said...

Pris...I started a post on that subject and I'm so glad you brought it up, though nobody'll really see it, and they should.

Kerry, Kennedy...all RICH and the Left was FINE with that.

But the conservative rich guy who put his inheritance in a foundation in his dad's name and made his own money after that is scoffed?

Kerry married it, Kennedy never worked for his. GO figure.

Right Wing Theocrat said...

The American people need someone who knows how to make money, someone who understands this. The last couple of years have shown to anyone with half a brain and anyone who knows their butt from their elbow that any fool, I say again, any fool can spend money.

If Americans buy the shameful claptrap being peddled by barack obama a second time, then they deserve the crippling debt that he has brought for you.
