Obama Using Nanny State To "Inspire" Young People

I saw this troubling video over at Nikki's blog. Normally I wouldn't duplicate the video or my comments on The Khaki Elephant, but when I woke up in a cold sweat thinking about the liberal shanking of rugged American individualism and self-reliance, I found my fingers dancing the cut-and-paste before sleep-crust was wiped from my eyes.

"Oh, gracious God" . . . it's hard to tell if he's happy to speak with the President or if he was referring to Obama by his media appellation.

Now I know that Julio Osegueda is less interested in what I have to say than the words of The Chosen One. I understand he is inspired by the pretty sentiments, but what this guy really needs is some tough love. So Julio, if you're out there, if you are reading, here's how I would answer your question:

It's been my experience that if you bust your ass at work and give 100% you're not going to be stuck in that same job at the same pay for long. The fact is that very few people pour their all into everything they do. If you work harder than the majority you will rise to the top. So instead of asking the President what his plans are to help you out, why don't you show a little self-reliance, stop trying to latch hold of the government teet and find a way to make your own life better.

Imagine if your attitude represented the American pioneers blazing the trail to forge a new land. The country that leads the world in the production of medicine, technology and hope would not be a country at all. Our forefathers and mothers would still be sitting in Boston Harbor waiting for the latest shipment of biscuits and tea from mommy England.

Julio, I've seen some of your interviews after this townhall where you were
still bubbling about the experience: "The last time I felt somewhat this good was when I receive a playstation3." Listen, my kids don't have a Playstation3 so how bad do you really have it? Julio, put the joystick down, stop buying $50 video games and start sacrificing now to make a better life for yourself later. It's not the job of hard-working American tax payers to fund a nanny-state babysitter to take care of you. This is still the land of opportunity, but opportunity comes from hard work and sacrifice, not from getting a high score at HALO.

Demand the best of yourself. Trust me, you will succeed.

With American Respect,

Some people don't agree with me. In fact, I've heard some praise this video as a wonderful example of how President Obama has inspired young people to become involved in the political dialogue. As for me, I'm less concerned with young people getting interested in politics than I am concerned with young people detaching themselves from this victim mentality they've been feed by liberalism. If this is where Obama inspires them to go . . . less inspiration, please.

    I wish some newspaper would publish your response to that kid.
    Excellent, Khaki. Too bad this is how we've taught our kids in schools these days..."get it here, get it FREE!"

    Get it from the messi-duh! sad.

    As for President Obama we all know that he is a hard-core leftist -- and perhaps a neo-Marxist. I know that his agenda could drive the last nail into America' coffin and that it is a blow against all that is great and good. Thus, if I wished him success, it could only mean I hated my country, my fellow man, and God himself.
    And to all those bloggers asking us conservatives to support this Marxist, I can tell them exactly where they can go

    You're right, Z. Obama's song is music to the ears of the "feed me" generation.

    Thank you, Nikki, for posting this beauty in the first place.

    Loves to debate, I'm not going to debate you. Limbaugh took a lot of heat for allegedly saying he hoped Obama failed. But you've hit the nail on the head. His "success" means a dangerous pull toward socialism and that will spell eventual disaster for our country.

    You're right, WHT.

    It appears B.H. Obama has signed a new Declaration of Dependence (thanks to the Nuge for that phrase)
