Dem Representative Says Unemployed will Vote for Obama


Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-PA) has a novel approach to presidential politics. Even though unemployment has sky-rocketed under the Obama administration, Fattah thinks the unemployed will vote to reelect the president. Fattah figures that those who lost their jobs are more concerned about keeping their unemployment checks than actually having an economy in which they could have a real job.

    Rep. Chaka Fattah sounds like a really intelligent individual. Just as intelligent as those who’d rather be unemployed and living on a government handout. Actually, it sounds more to me, as if Rep. Fattah is grasping at straws as the Democratic ship is starting to sink.

    Ronald Reagan beat “Peanut Brained” Jimmy Carter by asking Americans, “Are you better off now?” If the unemployed, other than those habitually with their hands out, would understand that Obama’s economic policies are meant to dig them farther and farther into a quagmire…perhaps they’ll think about it and vote correctly for someone that can create jobs?

    Jefferson said, “A government that can give you everything you want can take away everything you have.” Wake up, America! Get the Communist, Muslim, Chicago Thug, Community Organizer as far away from Washington DC as possible. I would suggest Leavenworth or Sing Sing.

      Has the memory of Bill Clinton faded? Every time he did something that was a total shocker and I mean negative, his popularity grew! Seems that negative news is not always a deal breaker! Don’t know about you folks, but daily I see kids who may be second or third generation welfare recipients and they know no other way to live. So as long as the handouts keep coming, I would wage a bet that those people will keep electing or re-electing the persons or parties that provide (through the working people)that luxury. Ever stood behind a person on welfare in a grocery store checkout? Amazing the quality and quantity of groceries they can afford while the working people don’t fare nearly as well. I am not criticizing those who actually need assistance for a low period in their lives but those who make a “mighty healthy” living on the system, a crying shame.
