And his academic credentials are off limits!



    what does this post prove that he was rich because he went to a prom? or smoked weed? Look at that jacket it is not a rich man's suit. Obama was socio-economically the closest thing to a middle class President we have seen since Clinton.

    The mandate sounds scary and terrible ya know what else is a mandate? seatbelts. Why should people wear seatbelts? Because people are dopes and they don't know what's good for them.
    I don't see to many young people going out to purchase affordable health care, why not?

    Man is that one ever easy. I figured it out even before the abomination of a law was passed.

    If I was a young & healthy I would never sign up for health care before I absolutely needed it for a preexisting condition.

    Why?

    Well the fine for not having health care is less than the premiums for a plan & I can't be turned down for the preexisting condition.

    Conclusion, most of the young & healthy are way, way smarter than the "Community organizer in chief", Pelosi & Reid et al. Scary huh!

    By the way whens the last time a Republican President knew poverty in his life? Abe Lincoln? Who knows better how to balance a budget while poor, Mitt Romney?
    Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan grew up poor as well. They did not attend a prestigious private school like President Obama did, so I guess they must be more empathetic than him.

    Also, if Obama can give good advice to poor people since he was poor, does that mean he can't good advice to working people because he's never held a real job in his entire life?
