You Didn't Build That, Obama! Jacksonville, Florida speech 7/25

Obama's speech at JAXPORT in Jacksonville had the atmosphere of a campaign rally. He was continuously railing against Republicans. "There's a group of Republicans in the House who refuse to fund our debts, so that this country may move forward, in supporting the middle class". What a twisted version of the battle yesterday over the defense authorization amendment by Amash. Over and over he referred to those bad Republicans and said that if they won't support me "I WILL ACT ON MY OWN!!!"

The Great Divider is here. Dividing the country between Black and White, Rich and Poor, Republican and Democrat, least we pay any attention to "those PHONY SCANDALS" and take our attention off Obama's supposed agenda: to raise the middle class, provide everyone with a secure income, and health care when they need it. Yes, I need it, Obama, you make me sick.

Distractions? Political Posturing? Phoney Scandals? Benghazi, IRS targeting your political opponents, NSA spying on every one of us, tossing the Constitution and especially the Bill of Rights in the trash, destruction of the economy, are those the "Phoney Scandals" we should ignore?

The final straw. the point when I had to either leave the room or Scream in anger, was when Obama took credit for JAXPORT. Bragging about such projects which will put people to work by improving our infrastructure, bla, bla, bla. YOU DIDN'T BUILD JAXPORT, OBAMA! Jaxsonville, private companies, and the great state of Florida built Jaxport. As you, Mr. President, repeatedly pointed out, we are doing quite well in Florida. Please stay out of our way.

FYI, Presidents taking

FYI, Presidents taking credit/responsibility for the economy during their terms is nothing new. Despite their real influence on the economy, they tend to get credit/get the blame. That is just the way it is.

Tx, Dr No

Good name, by the way. :-) Presidents take credit for the good, not the bad. What made me furious was his giving the fed gov credit for JAXPORT. I guess you have to be local to get that.

If you see something, say something, the government is listening.

They obviously don't want to

They obviously don't want to take credit for the bad, but they end up doing so anyway. They get blamed for it.

Could someone please explain this comment by Obama today:

"I have cut government spending by half of the increase in the deficit!"

He is referring to the fact

He is referring to the fact that he's cut spending from George Bush's budget, especially in inflationary terms.

In his defense, much of the budgetary problems he's faced has been to the increased number of people dipping into Social Security and Unemployment, as well as the loss in tax revenue due to the recession.
