He said it folks, not me!

The best time to get the truth from Barack Obama is to catch him in an unguarded moment, when he either thinks he is among like-minded people ("cling to guns" statement in San Francisco), or when he doesn't have time to put a good spin on what he has to say.

During a press-the-flesh event yesterday, Obama was asked by a plumber in the crowd, a very poignant question about raising taxes. I will print a transcript of what was said, and then you can view actual footage if you like:
Plumber (to Obama): “Your new tax plan is going to tax me more. Isn’t it?”

Obama: “It’s not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody that is behind you, that they have a chance for success too. I think that when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”

Ah, Marx would be so proud. "It's not that I want to punish your success," but that's exactly what the Obamessiah plans on doing. He is an out and out socialist. And what does he mean by "everybody that is behind you"? This is a simple matter of Obama wanting to pick winners and losers; he knows what is best for you. Bow to Obama!

Good Day to You, Sir

Obama is a socialist? That's like saying the Pope's Catholic. What kind of hell are we in for, if he wins? Please don't answer, it would be too depressing to hear.

So Chanman, how goes things in your classroom/school? Or have you gone over to the dark side (political blogging) ?

Don't you love it when politicians talk in an unguarded fashion and speak the truth. Don't look for the MSM to say anything about this because to them it makes complete sense. To them it is does a bear poop in the woods? Nothing wrong here with them. They don't even get it. Never will.

Hi Polski,
I'm trapped really. I am having such an uninspiring, unenjoyable, and cynical year teaching those little middle school hellions, that blogging about politics has been one of my escapes from the classroom.

With this in mind, blogging about my experiences in the classroom is often the last thing I want to do. However, I do have some pent-up classroom rage that needs to be vented soon, so I will be vomiting it all over your screen in an upcoming post.

Thanks for keeping me honest!

You on the other hand have been giving some great classroom information lately. Kudos!

Interesting insight.

I can't imagine that anything in the NY Times wouldn't be biased, socialistically, George.

The Times piece offers some insight into the character of Barack Obama and his formative years spent as a community organizer.
