Another day, another scare tactic for your dollar?


Obama race

Obama says Republicans trying to scare voters

“Nobody thinks that Bush and McCain have a real answer to the challenges we face. So what they’re going to try to do is make you scared of me,” Obama said. “You know, he’s not patriotic enough, he’s got a funny name, you know, he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”

Last time I looked George Washington was the only president on the dollar bills, but with Obama, that’s likely to change. Or so he hopes.


Drudge’s Obama dollar

Instapundit:

Er, all those other presidents? Isn’t there just one President on the dollar bill?

Obama was injecting race into the race, again, as you can see in the above video. But An Obama spokesman denied that the line about “dollar bills” was related to the Democrat’s race.

Well, if it isn’t about his race, is it about his ego? “Other presidents”, as if he was already President?

Or is it about socialism?

The Anchoress links to Obama’s stealth socialism and “economic justice”. Obamanomics Is a Recipe for Recession, an obvious form of Marxism with all the essential ingredients of Communism. It is inconceivable to me that the USA would embrace this kind of already-proven failed economic policy when countries like Brazil are lifting themselves out of poverty by doing exactly the opposite of what Obama proposes. The “hope” and “change” he proposes are the road to ruin.

As Siggy puts it,

Promises of hope and change do not deal with problems and disparities- they camouflage them.

Dean’s World looks at Empty Rhetoric, The Race Card, And The Audacity of Shameless Lying in that speech:

It’s astonishing how readily socialism can be repackaged as populism just by using some loftily vacuous rhetoric. Every time there’s an economic hiccup, we hear some new narrative explaining how we need higher taxes and more government intervention. Make no mistake: fear is exactly what Barack Obama is selling here. If you aren’t afraid, you might listen to economists, who will drone on about boring, unhopeful, nonaudacious concepts like private market efficiency, cumulative productivity gains, and long-term growth through the creative destruction of inefficient competitors.

Hope, change, and more government intervention.

You can bet your Obama dollar on it.

Obama buttons?

UPDATE
By golly, it has the ring of Genesis.

    Fausta, please calm down. Lotsa us less edumacated people say “dollar bills” when they really mean to say “currency.” Cut the guy a little slack on this particular one. Hammer him on reverse racism — harder!
