Obama: America's Gone Soft
— Ace

Video.

Hm, I wonder how we might have become soft. Peter Kirasow:

There is a soft America and a tough America; a dependent America and an independent America; an entitlement America and a productive America. Which policies are more likely to produce a soft, dependent, and entitlement society? Which ones are more likely to produce a tough, independent, and productive society? The president seems blissfully unaware.

The Obama brand of liberalism not only is likely to contribute to a “softer” America, but a soft-headed America as well. We condemn tea-partiers and veterans as racists and potential terrorists but we release actual terrorists from Guantanamo because the evident cruelties of that country-club facility are too terrible to bear. We demonize the hard-won, self-made success of risk-takers, but shovel millions of their hard-earned dollars to prop up the uncompetitive but politically correct enterprises of the well-connected. Government policies proliferate that punish effort, risk, and success but reward sloth, identity, and failure.

...

Soft America eschews absolutes, derides standards, ridicules heroes, and scoffs at virtue.

Jonah Goldberg:

I wonder where America could have lost its competitive edge. It couldn’t possibly have anything to do with a government that blows billions on green energy boondoggles while making it harder to drill for oil while trying to make electricity rates “skyrocket.” It couldn’t have to do with extending unemployment benefits to 99 weeks (and rising), or to bailouts or perhaps advice like this offered by Michelle Obama:

“We left corporate America, which is a lot of what we’re asking young people to do,” she tells the women. “Don’t go into corporate America. You know, become teachers. Work for the community. Be social workers. Be a nurse. Those are the careers that we need, and we’re encouraging our young people to do that. But if you make that choice, as we did, to move out of the money-making industry into the helping industry, then your salaries respond.” Faced with that reality, she adds, “many of our bright stars are going into corporate law or hedge-fund management.”

Or maybe it has something to do with the influence of tough leaders like Nancy Pelosi who said Obamacare was a jobs bill because:

“Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or a writer without worrying about keeping their day job in order to have health insurance.”

Thank goodness we have Obamacare now so we can compete with the Chinese at photography.

So, it appears the good Doctor Obama has succeeded in spotting the symptoms, but failed abysmally in diagnosing the reasons for his patient's ailing condition.

Hint: He'd breathe better, doctor, if your foot wasn't pressing quite so hard on his throat, and he might show more energy and activity if you weren't keeping him prisoner in a padded room.

Let's try to solve this Obama Mystery with the help of Obama's own words!

#1: "The way I think about it is, this is a great, great country that had gotten a little soft and we didn’t have that same competitive edge that we needed over the last couple of decades."

That was yesterday.
And this was seventeen months ago:

#2: "We’re not, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money."

That's not really a huge boondoggle if you look at like the Interstate Highway system or the moon shot - a need to improve E/W communication to tie the country together. It was hardly the first public works project - canals, other railroads.

The Northwestern was a generation or so later, so conditions were different. Even if they wanted to, they couldn't have emulated his plan in 1867. There wasn't anyone there to build up a market.

You are grabbing at little things - JB tried to force a proslavery constitution on a state against the wishes of 90 percent of the residents, throwing his own personally selected troubleshooter under the bus in the process, and triggering a mini war there.  Then for kicks he drove a wedge in the party that assured that a Republican would win and the South would secede.  Then he watched and did nothing as the actual Southern States seceded and took most of the arms for the whole country with them.

177 The Hoover Dam is a masterpiece.

Hoover didn't cause the 1929 crash.

He tried fixing the broken economy with public works projects, volunteerism, raising the taxes on the highest income bracket, and instituting tariffs. Hoover should have known tariffs didn't help the Jefferson administration's economy. Given that raising taxes and tariffs didn't help, it's better to argue that FDR knew better than to carry on messing up for a decade on a whim (since Europe recovered though FDR wouldn't let America recover). The Democrats haven't a leg to stand on with their demands today.

The History Channel had a great doc series on Presidents until their recent update on it which villafied Dubya and claimed Obama was the awesome just cause he won a close primary. Richard Norton Smith has some videos on YouTube if you want a more right-center look at Presidents then you usually get from the elitist left-center Historians. And of course there's actually reading the person's own words and thoughts. You won't believe how much the lib media is hiding about these guys.

THIS

Hoover was a big Govt type. he raised taxes and spending. the clown was even called Socialist by FDR's 1932 campaign, ironic. Hoover refused to listen to Coolidge and the secretary of Treasury who begged him not to do what he did. stock market crashes happen, it's how the Govt responds to them that causes hurt or rebound.

205 Grant also fought the KKK before it was popular to do so.

(Applause*)

Truth's a two-edged sword. Why wouldn't the Union General who ordered a war against civilians (unlike the South that never directed battles to kill Northern civilians and destroy entire regions of life, burning down cities and farms) and had Shermann torch the South, then sent in the Carpetbaggers to impede the South's economic recovery, why wouldn't he carry on his war after it was over by fighting the KKK? Don't think that it wasn't popular in the North to play victor in the South, denying ex-Confederate votes, etc. That was the rationale motivating the KKK, self preservation since the North/Grant wasn't satisfied with winning.

/*Yes, my families fought against the KKK when it was extremely unpopular to do so.

We elected — we thought we elected — a tough man to do a tough job. Who is soft, Mr. President, the electorate who went crazy for the tough guy, or the president who broke his promises while refusing to make a single tough decision about spending?” -SG

258 Okay. I commented about this PETA bitch earlier today on FNC. Here's the video.

Tell me she didn't deserve EXACTLY what I called her this morning.

259 uh.... bad phrasing...it looks like I'm saying I commented on FNC. Nope. I commented, earlier, about the PITA person who was on FNC this morning.

261 Yes, America is very soft.

It is also moist and delicious.

Watch as I devour her.

270 Seriously,since Biden said yesterday they can't blame Bush anymore, they have to blame somebody. So its your fault America!

Speaking of soft, the best lines from of Jon Stewart, heard recently while talking about 'Operation Fast & Furious':

"Fox News, you'd better call your doctor.  That erection you've got is going to last a lot longer than four hours!"

heh

Hey, aren't the liberals the ones that are all into the miraculous powers of "self-esteem"?  You know, where you build up someone's character by telling them how wonderful they are, whether they are really accomplished at anything or not?  Everybody wins a prize!

So, follow me on this now... then by their own lights, what are all these liberals really trying to do to America by continually telling most Americans how shitty they are at everything, and that they are the root of all the world's problems?  Hmmmm?  I think I have a hunch.  Fuckers.

Like the Top Gun Air Boss said, "I. Want. Some. Butts!" and I reckon come November next year, we're gonna nail us some nice fat ones !!

274 Soft? I feel like I'm living in the last century here on the border.

276 Wait you guys. In light of how fantastically inept this adminstration has been, its almost like they want the Republicans to take over the whitehouse and the senate . . . .

277 You show me one person who hasn't gone soft after the big O and I'll show you a liar and a cheat.

“Don’t go into corporate America. ... Be a nurse."

 

Right. Because nurses don't work for corporations that run hospitals.

Seriously, where do get these idiots from?

282 The President is right. America has gone soft. Quick! Another trillion-dollar welfare injection! Stat!!

America's gone soft?  That's odd, Obama's certainly made things very hard for most Americans, what with all the unemployment and corporate-crony theft going on.

Perhaps on November 15, 2012, we'll show him how hard we've become.  And then things will become harder for his eco-marxist minions.

Posted by: theCork at September 30, 2011 06:56 PM (iSyWd)

287 For an economy point of view, probably. I don't think though that this is equally true from a military point of view, as most non US persons would tend to agree.

I can't help it. Every time I see the First Wookie it goes soft for days. It takes liberal doses of internet pron to get things back to normal.

[ what? OH, not THAT kind of soft ]

never mind

289 Obama is like a walking, talking burrito.  Just the thought of Hussain  is enough to make you  upchuck.
