Obama: Same Ol', Same Ol'

With a hat tip to THE ASTUTE BLOGGERS for the video below:


And Obama accuses RNC 2012 of reruns and offering retreads?
President Obama didn't think much of the Republican National Convention.

He told some 10,000 people Saturday at a rally in Urbandale, Iowa, that the agenda set out by nominee Mitt Romney and other speakers in Tampa was "better suited for the last century" more often than not.

"It was a rerun. We’d seen it before. You might as well have watched it on a black-and-white TV," Obama said, clearly enjoying himself...."

[...]

He said Romney "did not offer a single new idea, just retreads of the same old policies that have been sticking it to the middle class for years." He told the audience, "you've lived through it and you can't afford to repeat it."
What's that last bit?
retreads of the same old policies that have been sticking it to the middle class for years. [Y]ou've lived through it and you can't afford to repeat it.
Most recently, policies since 2009 have wrought havoc on the middle class.

Americans have short memories.  Short memories should work against Obama. 

Americans think in short terms.  Thinking in short terms should work against Obama.

Who among us are better off than they were four years ago?

Relevant flashback on Obama's policies prior to his election to the White House in 2008:
With landmark lawsuit, Barack Obama pushed banks to give subprime loans to Chicago’s African-Americans

President Barack Obama was a pioneering contributor to the national subprime real estate bubble...
Furthermore:
Obama has pursued the same top-down mortgage lending policies in the White House.

Obama’s lawsuit was one element of a national “anti-redlining” campaign led by Chicago’s progressive groups, who argued that banks unfairly refused to lend money to people living within so-called “redlines” around African-American communities. The campaign was powered by progressives’ moral claim that their expertise could boost home ownership among the United States’ most disadvantaged minority, African-Americans.

Progressive activists’ ambition instead contributed greatly to a housing bubble that burst in 2007, crashed the nation’s economy in 2008, wiped out at least $4 trillion in equity, kept unemployment above 8 percent for four years, and damaged the intended beneficiaries of looser mortgage lending standards....

Additional reading (from the New York Times): "The Competitor in Chief," which offers some interesting insights into Barack Hussein Obama's personality. What the article omitted: Obama's lack of empathy. As liberal columnist Richard Cohen mentioned in 2008:
[Obama] can acknowledge your pain, but he cannot feel it.
Lack of empathy is, of course, one of the hallmarks of sociopathy. Read more about the characteristics of sociopathy HERE.

  4. Obama should be talking... His progressive ideas are a century old, and they've all been proven to be disastrous.
