Obama Blames ‘Right-Wing Radio’ for Making ‘People Think Big Government is the Problem’

Truth Revolt – by Trey Sanchez

President Obama visited Elkhart, Indiana on Wednesday and during a town hall meeting blamed “right-wing radio” for distorting his economic record and for making “people think big government is the problem.”

“I hope you don’t mind me being blunt about this,” the president said, “but I’ve been listening to this stuff for a while now and I’m concerned when I watch the direction of our politics.”

When Obama visited Elkhart seven years ago, the unemployment rate was near 20%. Now, he boasts that the rate has dropped to around 4% in the city and 5% across the state.

The president seems to be on a legacy tour, promoting his tenure in the last remaining months he has at the White House. So, every opportunity must be used to blame the vast right-wing conspiracy, especially Fox News and talk radio:

“I mean, we have been hearing this story for decades: tales about welfare queens, talking about takers, talking about the ’47 percent’. It’s the story that is broadcast every day on some cable news stations, on right-wing radio. It’s pumped into cars and bars and VFW halls all across America, and right here in Elkhart. And if you’re hearing that story all the time, you start believing it.

“It’s no wonder people think big government is the problem.”

We don’t need talk radio to tell us big government is the problem, Mr. President. Our Founding Fathers warned of it long ago.

  1. The deficient has gone DOWN under his presidency?!? No, POTUS/POS, the problem is the enemy force in occupation, of which you are a part, the New World Order, the bankers, and the rest of the International Corporate Mafia.

    Loss of jobs wasn’t due to less people being in unions, it was all our factories and industry being sent to China and other foreign countries through illegal free trade agreements! Anyone who listens to this lying POS is beyond being an idiot.

    I had to stop at the 12:24 time stamp, I couldn’t take anymore of his lying, 100% pure B.S. GARBAGE! And yes, I am surprised I made it that far through the video.

  2. he blames everyone but himself.
    he takes no responsibility for his actions.
    trailer park trash living in the white house getting rich off all of us.

  3. This guy, along with his bull, is totally irrelevant. Who listens, let alone believes him?
    Please just go AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. It isn’t “right wing” talk radio or news that makes me think big government (actually, ANY government) is dangerous. It’s a basic knowledge of history and awareness of human nature.

  5. Bottom-line, nothing Obama said during either election was the truth and the proof is, that all his original supporters are ashamed and have disowned him.
    He is a criminal for the ‘hit list’, setting up spying agencies with only the public as their real target, invading Iraq, again and again—Lies about Libya, Afghanistan, Syria, etc. But the biggest most dangerous whopper was the idiotic, asinine coup and subsequently destruction of the Ukraine.– just to hem in China thru the targeting of Russia….And all for the psychos 62, who are the real enemy–the 1% and their dumb-down trade agreements to finally establish, all the taxpayer as simple fodder for welfare to be given free to the poor obese corporations and banks getting their bailouts. So both can suck all taxpayers dry by, overruling nation state’s Constitutions, Charter of Rights and regulations….set up for the protection of the domestic economies necessary for a healthy public in each nation—–see bilaterals.org for complete info and content analysis of all global trade deals—as proof

  6. “It’s pumped into cars and bars and VFW halls all across America,…”

    Not here.

    Ryan is the most awake person at the VFW here.

    But at least they’re better armed and better prepared for what’s coming than the majority of morons I knew in L.A.
