Obama troll-master, David Plouffe, made a statement on Wednesday that mystified quite a few people. I heard Limbaugh talk about it during my Friday lunch break, and Lonely Conservative posted about it later. Here is the comment, via The Hill…
“The average American does not view the economy through the prism of GDP or unemployment rates or even monthly jobs numbers,” Plouffe said, according to Bloomberg. “People won’t vote based on the unemployment rate, they’re going to vote based on: ‘How do I feel about my own situation? Do I believe the president makes decisions based on me and my family?’ ”
The general consensus is Plouffe is a nutball, or at least out of touch. However, I had another thought. Who is it that might only think of their own situation? Who would possibly think that Obama makes decisions based on “me and my family?”
The dependent classes! With record numbers of people now dependent on government programs of one sort or another, the Democrats have a record number of potential voters that will be motivated to keep the gravy coming. Of course, with Obama’s policies preventing businesses from hiring, and causing inflation, might the Democrats use some fear mongering to get the dependents to the polls? Unless standard Democratic lying procedure changes in the next 16 months, the answer to that is YES! And, of course, I’m sure that there will be many ”completely ethical” community organizations out in full force to make sure that they vote early and often ( along with their deceased relatives).
We’ve been saying all along that one of the goals of the Obama administration is to make as many people as possible dependent on the government. Perhaps Plouffe is looking for that to pay off in 2012?
It’s a distinct possibility.
