He adds that “One of the things I’m always concerned about is cynicism,” Obama said. “My chief of staff, Denis McDonough, we take walks around the South Lawn, usually when the weather is good. And a lot of it is policy talk, sometimes it’s just talk about values. And one of our favorite sayings is our job is to guard against cynicism, particularly in this town. And I think it’s important for us to guard against cynicism and not buy the idea that the poor will always be with us and there’s nothing we can do, because there’s a lot we can do. The question is, do we have the political will, the communal will to do something about it.”
He says FOX says that…“the poor are sponges, leeches, don’t want to work, lazy….or undeserving” He goes on…. “If you watch FOX News on a regular basis (Z: how does he know?), it is a constant menu they will find of folks ‘who make ME mad… who say ‘I don’t want to work, I just want a free Obama phone!’ and that becomes an entire narrative!” He apparently feels that the entire narrative of FOX is mocking the poor because they have the nerve to feature people like that to make their points.
He goes on to say “We’re going to have to change how the media reports and how peoples’ impressions of what it’s like to struggle looks like.” What? “CHANGE HOW THE MEDIA REPORTS?” You mean just FOX, right, Obama? Are you going to sign an Executive Order about this? And, by the way, OBAMA, who doesn’t know what struggling looks like?
And are you going to change media before or after you change Jesus’ words of “You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me.” John 12:8. Is Obama going to be the new Thomas Jefferson and change Scripture?
Obama suggests Jesus is ‘cynical’ and we shouldn’t ‘buy the idea that poor will always be with us’. He adds we need to do something for the poor. Who doesn’t feel that way? Anybody? Oh, maybe FOX, according to Obama?
By the way, Hillary also wants to change religion, too! She recently said “Deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed to provide reproductive health care for all women” I guess she’s going to change the Bible to justify abortion, too. Exodus will be the first chapter, she’ll expunge “Thou shalt not kill.” Exodus 20:13 (KJV) And, by the way, who doesn’t want to provide reproductive health care to all women?
Democrats want to change THE SCRIPTURES? CHANGE HOW THE MEDIA REPORTS?
What ‘values’ is Obama talking about on his walks? He calls changing Scripture or lying about news venues which criticize him, or calling us all racists who hate the poor good values?
PS: the only way there will never be any poor is when we are all poor. Sadly. That’s just realistic. That’s Socialism. I wish he understood ‘realistic.’
