A while back the White House denied Newt Gingrich’s charge that Obama is the “food stamp president,” a title they instead tried to bestow upon, you guessed it, George W. Bush.

According to Jesse Jackson this past weekend, Team Obama should wear the title as a badge of honor.

Transcript from Newsbusters:

Say, it’s an honor to be a food stamp president. Food stamps feed the hungry. Food stamps save the children. Food stamps help the farmer. Food stamps help the truck driver. Food stamps help the warehouse. Food stamps help the store. Food stamps hire people and feed people. Food stamps save people from starvation and malnutrition. Whenever you attack feeding the hungry, you undermine the moral authority of our faith. Give President Barack Obama a big hand. Show your love. Show your appreciation.

So it’s settled then… food stamps for everybody! Nobody will ever take them away! They can take our lives, but they can never take our food stamps!

At times Jessie Jackson sounds like the William Wallace of the dependency culture.

“Keep food stamps alive!” What an inspiring message that is sure to motivate the impoverished to seek to improve their lives and encourage the jobless to find a job:

    I'm so done with black racists.

    If the Democrats still controlled the House you can bet there would be a mandate in place requiring everyone receiving foot stamps and/or unemployment benefits to vote for El Presidente's re-election.

    This can all be traced back to LBJ's Great Society and just look at how that is working out for Detroit! Not only the food stamps and welfare checks but the whole city is crumbling – city government, a broken public bus system, failing schools, rampant crime that has claimed the lives of 3 children under the age of 12 in just three weeks, corruption in every form imaginable, police and fire with broken down vehicles and the latest article today – the city government is going run out of money in April. So when one promotes freebies in every form and does not promote self sufficiency and independence and moral values – this is what you get.

    Free stuff is expensive when you take from the producers and give to the moochers. You eventually run out of other peoples money.

    Hey Rev Jackson, if the government and the shake down artists kept their hands out of peoples wallets then we would have plenty of money to feed ourselves.

    Another side note about food stamps. Why is Michelle Obama running around telling everyone what to eat, but those on foodstamps can buy nearly anything with them (some fast food places are accepting them now). Seems to me that those on foodstamps have gotten their waiver from Michelle O's lectures.

    Wan't he the same guy who wanted to cut off Barack Obama's jittles?

  6. SignPainterGuy on February 27th, 2012 3:50 pm

    Sure he is, but don`t hold it against him; race hustling is HARD !

  7. SignPainterGuy on February 27th, 2012 3:53 pm

    You`re on to something. Promise food stamp applicants / users THAT waiver and you`ll see applications rise 4 fold !

    Intelligence and common sense are not required.

  9. SignPainterGuy on February 27th, 2012 4:03 pm

    Good thing, `cause they certainly aren`t in evidence !

    Did he say that food stamps remind him of Selma? Everything else does.

    There is a story on Drudge stating that Dems are confident of taking back the House in November.

    Detroiters can watch for Obama to ride in on his white horse and pen his signature on a EO sending money to Detroit to bail them out until the end of the year. All they have to do in return is 1) rig their voting system so Obama wins in November (an easy task in Democrat dominated Detroit) and 2) raise taxes to cover their shortfall and repay Obama by cutting a donation to his campaign..

    So, now it is official: B. H. Obama is the food stamp pResident.
