  1. Great! And he also said:

    Oct 2011 – “You don’t have some inherent right just to– you know, get a certain amount of profit”

    You do if you really believe in the free market!

  2. “Free Market Capitalism for Me…but not for Thee”, sayeth Obama.

    Obama clawed his way to the top on the backs of the downtrodden…he is beholden to his ACORN/UNION thugs….and now we are ALL paying for it.

    Where was everyone when he said he was going to ‘fundamentally transform the United States of America’….and when he told Joe the Plumber he was going to mug him and rip him off to pay the deadbeats of the world?

    His pockets are lined with gold now…and he is just laughing at us all!

    • I remember the Obama zombies during the 2008 election. Americans on both sides of the fence were disillusioned with our government for a multitude of reasons. Obama made big promises and many Americans fell for this false idol. Some of my own family called me a racist for trying to point out his Marxist associations.

      Lots are waking up to the lies, but there are still far too many who have been brainwashed by years of leftist infiltration into our education system and churches. These people don’t have the critical thinking skills to determine right from wrong. Scary times we’re living through.

  3. except for…the coal industry, the auto industry, the banking industry, the money markets, the oil and gas industries, the restaurant industry, the insurance industry, the housing industry, the light bulb industry, the marijauna industry, a free internet, a free press, ……..
    Liar.

  4. “There will be time for them to make profits, and there will be time for them to make bonuses,” the president said. “Now is not that time.”

    Now THERE’S a capitalist if I ever heard one.

    And fwiw, BHO is behind Occupy Wall Street Zombies. No other explanation. Actually, I think the whole OWSt. crowd is really about the deep passion and desire of American youth to dress up as zombies. They got student loans to major in Zombie Studies and wonder why they can’t find a job (said the ’77 UGA art major cum cartoonist).

  5. There is no reason to keep repeating this unless it is to convince us that he really believes it. Has any other president found it necessary to say he believes in capitalism or the free market economy?

    It think it is a bit bizarre.

    And to think we will be supporting him for the rest of his life, even if he doesn’t win re-election.

  6. He suffers from Clintonitus: It all depends on the definition of i/s/ “free market”.

    That part one could almost excuse, since this country hasn’t had an actual free market in living memory.

  7. I used the WH clip of Obama from this December 2010 appearance in my recent video. This is the third time I’ve used it and listening to the audio something dawned on me. Move over Fast and Furious, I found the newest cover-up from this WH.

    A little factoid about when Obama said scoop the poop to second graders…*eye roll*. The White House lowered the audio on the word “poop”. This is interesting because what they did is illegal. The word poop is in the White House transcript. Here’s the video with the audio lowered @20:40 to barely audible.

    They were actually embarassed for Obama. We pay for the transcripts and videos. They are in the public domain. They aren’t allowed to edit them to make him look better. This isn’t the former Soviet Union….well

    They didn’t have to worry because I was probably the only one who noticed and used the clip in videos.

  8. He believes in the corrupt politics of Chicago. If you have it he wants it. If he had his way – and with the czars he’s getting close – a total collapse of the American way of life. Unfortunate consequences are the fact that the blacks in this nation are being hurt the worse as far as jobs, education and economy. What amazes me is that they (if Dem) will still vote for this man anyway. Just look at the ones in Chicago who are still supporting him. There is a town here have 27% unemployment and is mostly a black populaton.
