WOMAN: (screaming) Yes! Everybody in Cleveland, low minorities, got Obama phone. Keep Obama in president, you know? He gave us a phone!
REPORTER: He gave you a phone?

REPORTER: How did he give you a phone?
WOMAN: You sign up. If you’re… If you on food stamps, you on Social Security, you got low income, you disability…
REPORTER: Okay, what’s wrong with Romney, again?
WOMAN: Romney, he sucks! Bad!
OBAMA: I don’t believe we can get very far, uh, with leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives.
FOLLOWERS: (smattering of applause)
OBAMA: And I’ve gotta tell you, as I travel around Ohio and as I look out on this crowd, I don’t see a lot of victims. I see hardworkin’ Ohioans. That’s what I see.
OBAMA: Every campaign y’always hear a lot about patriotism. Well, you know what? It’s time for a new economic patriotism — an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. And I won’t pretend that gettin’ there is easy. The truth is it’s gonna take a few more years to solve challenges that were building up over decades.
OBAMA: But I want everybody here to understand our problems can be solved. Our challenges will be met. We got everything it takes to succeed!
RUSH: It’s gonna take a few more years, folks. That’s the plan. That’s the economic agenda put forth by Barack “I Don’t See Any Victims Out There” Obama. It’s gonna take a few more years to solve the challenges. They won’t be solved with Barack Obama. They won’t be solved with Obama policies. Obama policies have gotten us where we are. We are all victims of Obama.
In his world, “a thriving middle class” results from income redistribution. That’s his version of a thriving middle class, and that’s what’s patriotic. How does that make you feel, that it’s gonna take a few more years? Remember, now, unemployment was supposed to be down at 5.5% two years ago because of the stimulus. Roads and bridges were supposed to have been built all over the place and new schools and all kinds of repairs.
