Obama’s ‘Self Reliance Tour’ – All Rhetoric.

Posted by iusbvision on July 15, 2008

Senator Obama has been on the so called “Self Reliance Tour” as of late, and that includes his recent speech to the NAACP.

Obama, in recent weeks, has taken on the message of Bill Cosby by telling black families that they essentially need to get their act together socially and exercise more restraint, responsibility and self reliance.

If ANY white man went to the NAACP and said such a thing that message would not have been well received to put it mildly.

It is no secret that Obama took a huge hit among white voters, including union workers that tend to vote Democrat, with statements about the middle class such as his “guns and religion” comment that so damaged his campaign. The poll numbers reflected that damage.

Obama knows that the self reliance message is one that rings true with Middle America where the concepts of freedom, limited government and rugged individualism are a staple of society even among moderate and Reagan Democrats.

Obama’s voting record shows him to be the very most partisan of the very left wing of the Democratic Party. The self reliance tour would have destroyed him in the primary and it is not a political message that he has ran on before. The left has no where to go but Obama so he can afford to use a message like this without much risk.

Remember that Obama was outspokenly opposed to the welfare reform that was signed into law by President Clinton and now he takes credit for it. Here is the post complete with Youtube video showing his flip-flop on welfare reform/self reliance –
