Obama, the welfare president

Newt Gingrich was pilloried for calling Obama the Food Stamp president.  “Racist!” cried the usual suspects.  Huh?  Yes, racist, because food stamps are a form of welfare, welfare is traditionally associated with blacks, so Newt was reminding people that Obama is white-black  (as if the MSM ever allows us to forget that), and that he’s pandering to other blacks, white-blacks, brown-blacks, yellow-blacks, pink-blacks, blue-blacks, etc.

Just the other day, however, another politician went on record calling Obama a Food Stamp president, and his pronouncement was met with stunning MSM indifference.  You see, the man making this statement was black (or maybe, looking at the image, a kind of golden-brown-black) and the statement, rather than being derogatory (“Look what he’s reduced Americans to”) was laudatory:

Here’s the key language:

“We’re headed in the right direction. Unemployment continues to drop and those people who are unemployed, they’re not going to be voting for the party who wants to cut their benefits, cut access to food stamps, cut job training,” Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-PA) said on MSNBC’s Al Sharpton program.

“The idea that Republicans are trying to help those who are unemployed is nonsense and I think that on this election day, those who have a job can credit the administration for stabilizing our economy and those who don’t know that this administration is trying to put them to work,” he said.

Yay, Obama!  He’s the welfare president!  Four more years!  Four more years!  The dream has almost been realized:

It was the most memorable time of my life. It was a touching moment because I never thought this day would ever happen. I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know, if I help him, he’s gonna help me.

    Grim Beorn of Blackfive once posited, before 2008, that if we brought back the Code Duello, legally, that a lot of the verbal violence in the media and character assassinations would cease or be solved by people killing each other in duels. At the time I thought it would end up with too many innocents dying due to too many SEIU thugs bringing guns, bombs, grenades, and knives to the “fight” as they said they would. This would end up killing or injuring a substantial portion of the members of our alliance, the anti-Leftist alliance.

    However, these days, I’m pretty sure that there’s a lot of people that need killing.

    I personally would like to say to the Welfare President, Farewell, Mr. President.

    Y, I see a lot of killing talk coming from you these days…Obama’s gun to a knife fight was metaphor.  In light of many posts on self defense I am assuming that you are using metaphor as well but like Rush unless you areread  for an extended period of time those new to this blog might not get it.  Especialy the lib trolls ‘researchers’ that look for evidence of TEA Party voilence.l

    Actually in Chicago, it’s not a metaphor. It’s reality. It’s what they actually do. People can assume whatever they want on the internet, but it doesn’t guarantee their being right.
