[Obama accused] Republicans of sucking up to corporations, hewing to a bankrupt economic ideology and peddling tried-and-failed tax breaks for the rich.
"[A] good deal of the other party’s opposition to our agenda has also been rooted in their sincere and fundamental belief about government," Obama said. "It’s a belief that government has little or no role to play in helping this nation meet our collective challenges. It’s an agenda that basically offers two answers to every problem we face: more tax breaks for the wealthy and fewer rules for corporations."
At this point in the speech, a loud snapping noise was heard near the stage as the needle on the Presidential Hypocrisy Meter shattered into thousands of pieces. The President later apologized for the gaffe, admitting he had been the recipient of the most campaign contributions from the bankrupt lynch-pin of the housing disaster: Fannie Mae.
The President's criticism of the free market reflected his deep experience as a Constitutional lecturer. His study of the founding document has discovered what others have not: a little-known mandate buried deep within the Constitution that broadly endorses collectivism and Marxism.
"As November approaches, leaders in the other party will campaign furiously on the same economic argument they’ve been making for decades. Fortunately, we don’t have to look back too many years to see how it turns out. … They gave tax cuts that weren’t paid for to millionaires who didn’t need them. They gutted regulations, and put industry insiders in charge of industry oversight. ...
And despite all their current moralizing about the need to curb spending, this is the same crowd who took the record $237 billion surplus that President Clinton left them and turned it into a record $1.3 trillion deficit."
The architects of the Clinton-era surplus -- the Republican House of Representatives that actually created the federal budget during the Clinton Presidency -- could not be reached for comment.
Obama went on to blame the Gulf oil spill, Al Gore's divorce from Tipper, the Jihad flotilla, and the Sestak affair on Emperor Chimpatine McBushlitlerburton.
