Obama Says We’ve Gone Soft

Three days ago I read the following comment from President Obama:

“ The way I think about it is, you know, this is a great, great country that had gotten a little soft, and, you know, we didn’t have that same competitive edge that we needed over the last couple of decades. We need to get back on track.”

My first thought was that this is Obama’s ‘malaise’ moment. The sad pouty outcry of a destined to be one term president. Well, one can only hope.

Since then I haven’t been able to let go of the second part…..

‘We didn’t have the same competitive edge that we needed’


Is this man blind to the fact that liberal policies are to blame for this?

How can you blame Americans for being soft when you teach them to be greedy for what they haven’t earned, and teach them that they deserve what they haven’t worked for?

How can you expect us to keep the competitive edge when you punish the winners of the competition?


  1. I heard this too...and my instant response was "He's blamed everyone and everything else for all that's wrong in our country so why not blame the citizens! He has to be a one term president. All he's done is drive a wedge between the people to beat them down emotionally...all so that he can look good.

    The whole world now finally knows what an idiot we have for a president. Many of his financial backers are stepping away from him. We can only hope he makes a massive fool of himself to the point that no one will support him.

  2. "Is this man blind to the fact that liberal policies are to blame for this?" Well put!! I am surprised that anybody would listen to him at all. He has made a fool of himself and of us. Did you know that he is the first U.S. president to bow to the Chinese communist president. They all know he is such a push over... it's embarrassing!
