Newt Gingrich got the Obama administration enraged by calling President Obama, the food stamp President. Bryan Preston shows that Newt was right, from PJ Media:
Under Obama, the government has turned back the clock on welfare reform entirely. Now, about 46 million Americans, a record number, are on welfare. Spending on welfare has doubled under Obama to reach a stratospheric $75.3 billion as of January 2012. The “dignity of work” is nowhere to be found in Obama’s messaging at all. The president’s campaign spent the past week going negative in an attempt to denigrate and destroy Mitt Romney’s very successful business career. In a campaign speech over the weekend, President Obama even suggested that Americans who succeed in business are no better or more hard-working than anyone else, and that they could not succeed without government assistance. His exact words: “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” That somebody being government. In other words, says President Obama, Mitt Romney, architect of a multi-million dollar company that fixed dozens of other companies, is in reality just an overgrown welfare queen. And so you are you, if you have a job or own or run a business of your own.
That message, once it sinks in, ought to offend every American who believes in a free market economy. In addition to being an insult to American work ethics and capitalism, it betrays the fact that in that 2008 ad, Barack Obama was merely posturing to fool middle America into supporting him.
As Bryan pointed out, Dumbo, b/k/a Barack Obama, campaigned in 2008 on the promise that work is dignity. Now the Obami work to promote welfare rather than work. We have the No Dignity President.
