    Obama was in New York City today addressing Democratic donors and imparting more of his liberal logic.

    And more of that Liberal new math......“Not Spending Money Is Mortgaging America’s Future.”

    Deficits are not the only thing that could mortgage America’s future, President Barack Obama told Democratic donors in New York on Thursday. He stressed it would be mortgaging the country’s future if government did not spend money on certain areas.“There’s more than one way to mortgage America’s future,” Obama said at The Town Hall in New York. “We mortgage that future if we don’t get a handle on our deficit and debt, but we also mortgage it if we’re not investing in those things that will assure the promise of the American Dream for the next generation.”

    Obama, in the speech, broadly defined the government expenditures needed to ensure prosperity for the next generation that should not be sacrificed for deficit and debt reduction.

    Wait a minute, I thought a mortgage was borrowing. Now not borrowing is mortgaging? And they wonder why we want to see his college transcripts.

    In addition, when comparing the Republican budget proposal to his proposal, the President said this:

    “It’s a vision of a small America, of a shrunken America, where those of us who are lucky do great and don’t have to give anything back, and we can pull up the ladder behind us,” Obama said of the GOP plan at an earlier DNC fundraiser that same day at the Waldorf Astoria in New York.

    Lucky? How about those who work hard? Who assume risk and are brave enough to see it through? Obama sees the economy as a riverboat card game where the luck of the draw defines everything, and there's no difference between the guy who built the boat and the guy who runs the floating card game in the parlor. American Thinker summed this worldview up brilliantly:

    For the left, money is not something that is earned. Money happens. It happens when you know the right people. If you are a college professor and you make the right impression at enough faculty cocktail parties, one day you will be tenured and named department chair and money happens. If you are an "activist" or a "community organizer" and you hobnob with people from the right foundations, money happens. If you are a Hollywood actress, you spend a couple of hours a day on the set pretending you are a prostitute or a murderer and then go snort cocaine all night, and money happens.

    For the left's welfare-state constituencies, money happens when you fill out the right forms (or get an attorney to sue the government for you). Do it right and SSI, Medicaid, workers' comp, and agriculture subsidies just sorta happen. If you're an "artist" taking gay pornographic pictures and you apply for a taxpayer-funded grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, money happens. If you were born with spina bifida or you got your legs blown off in Iraq, I agree that you deserve a government check. If not, you don't deserve a nickel of anyone else's money.

    Obama is a poster boy for the "money happens" mentality. Obama held one private-sector job in his entire life, which he characterized as "behind enemy lines." Obama never published anything as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. Obama never published anything as a college instructor in constitutional law. Obama was given a publisher's advance for his memoirs -- after a life of accomplishing nothing -- and immediately encountered "writer's block" and sought help. In all probability his two books are ghostwritten. Yet Obama is a multimillionaire, largely from the sales of his books. For him, money happened. Obama's wife, Michelle, made a lousy hundred grand with her Harvard Law degree as vice-president for "community relations" at a Chicago hospital. When her husband was elected U.S. Senator in 2004, the hospital coincidentally decided that she deserved a raise of $200,000. For Michelle, money happened.

    It is safe to say that Barack, Michelle, Nancy Pelosi, and all the other ruling-class elites in D.C. have never swapped a bad transmission out of a pickup truck for a paycheck. They've never snaked someone else's feces out of a clogged toilet at 1 a.m. or rebuilt a diesel engine on a backhoe to make money. They never risked a half-million of their own on a small fleet of dump trucks or an auto-parts warehouse to make money. For them, money is an abstraction, something that greedy, rich "fat cats" (usually Republican, of course) stole from exploiting innocent third-worlders and noble union laborers (who are never lazy, stupid, or crooked). There's no reason why money shouldn't be taken from "the rich" by the government and given to the deserving, such as college students working on master's degrees in Queer Studies or programs designed to teach African men (not African-American men, but African men) how to use condoms. The left cannot conceive of the fact that actual people perform actual labor for money, and that economic reality dictates limits on spending. at July 24, 2011 - 05:54:57 PM CDT

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
