Obama’s “entitlement” versus “opportunity” society presidential campaign strategy

Obama is attempting to make economic inequality his center stage issue for the 2012 presidential campaign, using class warfare as his weapon of choice. He will try to define these issues in lieu of running on his abysmal economic record during his first term in office.

He recently assumed the persona of Theodore Roosevelt in a speech in the town where Roosevelt had decried the growing inequality between CEOs and their workers.

The first inquiry must be – is there a universal ratio between the rich and the poor, which must be maintained in a free society? Who determines that ratio – the government?

Obama is diverting the voter’s attention from his failed economic policies, which have not solved the country’s economic woes, by insinuating that the situation would have been much worse if it hadn’t been for his stimulus.

How will Obama prove that? It can’t be proven and that’s the beauty of his planned $1 billion dollar presidential campaign which has already begun at taxpayer expense! Don’t forget folks, that Obama is part of the 1%.

President Obama also stated in his speech in Osawatomie Kansas, earlier this month that, “That this type inequality, a level that hasn’t been seen since the Great Depression, hurts us all.”


“This kind of gaping inequality gives lie to the promise that’s at the very heart of America: that this is a place where you can make it if you try.”

Everyone doesn’t make it Mr. President, even if they try. There is no such guarantee in the Constitution that I recall. This kind of false advertisement gives the 99 percenters an excuse for their lack of trying. It’s easier to demonstrate against the rich on Wall Street, then it is to obtain the needed education and training to succeed even if it’s not to the 1% level.


The issue has become a rallying cry of the Occupy Wall Street movement that’s swept the country, with activists proclaiming “We are the 99 percent” as opposed to the “1 percent” at the top. And Obama advisers have identified this sense of inequality as the strongest current running through politics, one that they will be focusing on through Election Day.

This is the goal of the Obama campaign strategists. They will try to convince the voters that going after the rich will go to the heart of the problems that now afflict the middle class.

These people do not understand a dynamic economy, which grows and expands. They believe that the economy is finite – like the flat earther’s used believe the earth was flat –  and for every person that succeeds, it must be at the expense of another person and is therefore inherently unfair and the reason for the economic inequality, not the individual’s failing – a perfect blameless campaign strategy for Obama.
