Well he sounds a lot like the President Obama.
Of 2000 trial nothing.
But those were comments that some in the mainstream liberal media complain were taken out of context.
Well they're being quite silly and quite parts and in great reporting by the daily caller they obtain the complete remarks have been states Senator Obama.
Almost one and three quarters hours I listened to the entire thing including the sort of fellow travelers the president of the time.
Here is one particular revealing -- -- by.
-- these -- new -- figure.
What kinds of government action.
-- -- -- -- We.
Putting together the digital outdoor animal is okay we'll move I think it's horrible.
-- That's what it was all about back -- And bring.
That to be that majority coalition.
It would include churches and labor unions and community organizers and Obama wanted to -- and coordinated and combined.
But let's put in context the Obama comments and that of other.
Left wingers on that loyal what urban center to keep as I listen to them I mean there was some very sophisticated but abstract talk.
About the economy and about.
About making lives better.
It wasn't as if Democrats on the -- for.
Analysts back in October 1998.
These folks were left wing cause they liked being out there on that left wing.
That was my impression remember this in October of nineteen many.
Bill Clinton was president of the United States he was a Democrat and Democrat Richard M Daley was still the mayor of Chicago.
Things were really good for Democrats in 1998.
And actually really good for the entire country.
The initial unemployment.
Rate I mean it's hard to -- manage.
Back then was four point 5%.
Four point 5% unemployment.
But now we're good in the -- Chicago it was even better.
Four point 3%.
As he spoke to happen discussions about how they're gonna help -- for how they're going to create a coalition.
Of working pork.
And those on welfare extraordinary.
It seems -- about what did you know and that entire take.
That there wasn't one reference to welfare reform.
Or the fact that welfare rolls were falling have a dramatic and unprecedented -- in the United States because.
A President Clinton and the Republican party's cooperation in creating welfare reform.
I don't know why they wouldn't take note of that.
And the economy.
-- grief it was a it was well what GDP.
How those with the dates.
Four point 4%.
One person seven point 1% just just sick of this seven point 1%.
In the fourth quarter as they were meeting.
The station's building -- fancy coalition.
They were I don't think convincingly -- -- -- -- of oppressed by the economy -- political system which in fact they control.
Through their party.
An economy that is you can see was robust and prosperous.
And telescope or work now.
-- at the least fourteen year old philosophy.
Is now all president Obama's policy the coalition.
Of dependency working poor is grown hugely in less than four years.
But look at these numbers if you will.
-- to give you a sense of how that coalition idea is working.
Point four million Americans.
Are on food stamps.
That's an increase of 44% since the president took office nearly eleven million Americans.
Our -- disability.
That's by the way five and a half million of -- have -- President Obama took office it has double.
Meanwhile just about 56 million people.
Our enrolled in Medicaid as -- 2011.
I mean that's that's up from fifty point eight.
So I mean that the numbers just get huge and Obama care alone will expand Medicaid to an additional nineteen point six million.
Nineteen point six million Americans.
Increasing Medicaid spending by another 18% over the next two years and more than doubling it in the next ten years.
They're 23 million Americans who were unemployed.
And -- -- And a lot of people like to take note of this but it's kind of important.
These are fellow citizens -- talking about.
Or they've given up looking for work altogether.
So we're talking about another fifty -- just rounded off to another fifty million.
And you're talking -- -- close to a hundred million Americans and there is admittedly some duplication.
-- a hundred million.
What President Obama -- to potential majority coalition.
Fourteen years ago.
As move quickly toward reality thanks in no small measure.
To his own policies that would encourage greater dependency.
And growth in a -- -- Of working for those were fortunate to have -- -- -- to have a job.
That coalition of working for those on welfare.
-- swap America.
And perhaps as early as November 6.
Unless we are indeed.
