Obama: Americans "better off" under his presidency

By Justin Sink

President Obama said Americans were “better off now than when I came into office,” during a fundraiser Monday night outside of Washington.

Obama also slammed congressional Republicans for their focus on the terror attack in Benghazi and the implementation of ObamaCare.

The president told attendees at the high-dollar soiree in Potomac, Maryland that his Republican opposition in Congress had been “captured by ideologues” whose principal focus was on “how to make people sufficiently skeptical, so they can win the next election.”

“The debate now is about what?” Obama asked. “Benghazi? ObamaCare? It becomes this endless loop.”

Obama told donors that he preferred a robust Republican Party —  “I come from the Land of Lincoln” — but that the current iteration of the GOP did not believe “that government can get anything done.”

Obama’s remarks came at a fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee at the home of Jeffrey Drenzer, a medical training and technology executive. Tickets to the event, billed as an “intimate dinner,” ranged from $10,000 per person to $32,400 per couple.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), DCCC Chairman Steve Israel (D-N.Y.), and Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley (D) joined a sizable contingent of House Democrats at the event, including Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and fellow Maryland Democrats Elijah Cummings, Chris Van Hollen, Donna Edwards, Dutch Ruppersberger, and John Delaney. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) was also in attendance.

On his way to the fundraiser, Obama stopped to chat with a group of little league teams at a Northwest D.C. baseball field. The president posed for pictures and quizzed the co-ed teams on their drills.

Maybe God has it right. He and his evil wife have more money. But they also have a legacy of being the worst admin. in the history of the US. They've divided us, made us less secure, taken away opportunity for the next generation or two, restricted our freedoms in ways that our forefathers couldn't even imagine, and caused turmoil in the entire world.

Would you want that legacy in exchange for even more millions than they have managed to extract from us?

During a fundraiser. On his way to a fundraiser. In between fundraisers. While preparing notes for a fundraiser.

Whatever.

We're not "better off": he's better off.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

None of us would, but he does, and he'll be darn proud of it.

Maybe it's not you? Maybe God is allowing evil to prosper because we, collectively, have turned our back on Him?

Or maybe not.  Probably not.  Assuredly not.

Apparently, to Obuttocks "Americans" means only fedgov civil service employees, 'cause they - and rich white liberals - are the only ones doing any better under Obuttocks' reign of madness.

I think the welfare classes are also doing better. There are more people on gov't handouts than ever before. The welfare classes (I won't call them the poor, because they do better than the working poor); gov't employees; crony capitalists (particularly the ones in the global warming industry); and the coastal elites are all doing fine.

The ones who are getting hosed are the middle class - esp. small business owners.

People are "better off" under his presidency - if they leave the country. :seeya:

There is proof that salaries for the average joe have decreased but he lies and it gets reported as gospel truth. Anyone stupid enough to believe anything coming out of this imposters mouth hasn't many brain cells and is to far gone to help.
