Obama: “fierce advocate” for the free market

Not only narcissistic, but also self-deluded:
Obama Says He’s ‘Fierce’ Free-Market Advocate, Rejects Critics.

He just wants you to understand your feelings:

Obama attributed feelings that he’s unsympathetic to business in part to “a spillover effect” from public criticism he has leveled at large banks.

He also cited instances when he has clashed with specific industries such as insurance companies over his health-care plan, energy companies over climate change, and banks over a financial-regulatory overhaul. Still, he argued, in each case the proposal benefited American businesses as a whole.

“You have got some pretty significant, well-funded industry interest groups who are adamantly opposed, and they have got a lot of sway,” Obama said.

Takeovers of the financial, banking, and automotive sectors – and proposing a takeover of the healthcare industry – which would amount to the government controlling over 50% of the economy, and he considers himself a “fierce advocate for the free market??

And don’t get me started on these,

  • Increasing the national debt to astronomical, unprecedented levels
  • Cap and trade
  • “Green” energy schemes that result in no job creation, while unemployment continues to rise

and that swipe he took at businesses by deploring the “well-funded industry interest groups”, when those are the very businesses he’s destroying.

“Fierce advocate” for free market?

Yeah, right.

Please note there will be no podcast today due to internet connection problems. Thank you for your patience.

Maybe Reporters Should Bring YouTube Clips to Obama Interviews

    There’s the free market which didn’t donate a lot of money to his campaign and the FREE MARKET that did donate a lot of money. Surprise, surprise the latter has found itself chained to the former.
