Can Obama say "Mission Accomplished" on his pledge to "spread the wealth"?

This year, more than 46 million (15% of all Americans) will get food stamps. ... That's 45% higher than when Obama took office, and twice as high as the average for the previous 40 years.

    Well that is one campaign promise that he kept.

    He spread out tax money around to all the wealthy elite billionaires bailing out their corporations so that they didn't take any loses on their bad investments.

    Billionaire Buffet backs Obama and recently he bought a huge stake in BAC. Obama likes bailing out big banks where millionaires and billionaires have their money invested.

    "I pledge allegiance to the Funk, of the United Funk of Funkadelica." Would somebody please explain that one?! I really like that thing about not "giving the finger" while we're driving, or not flushing the toilet with Number 1--only flush after Number 2... WHAT??? I am so glad my kids will never step foot in a public school where they play crap (that is, number 2) such as this. Even if I agreed with the message, which I do not, it's just so sappy and totally dumb. Pardon me while I puke. I don't watch movies (I'm a bookworm) but if I did, I'd quit!

    Yes, Obama has made Millions of Americans POOR.

    He is still Taking Away from the Working Class, and Giving It to the Rich Class and the Welfare Class.

    Not yet there are still the tax loop holes the big corporations love. The outsourcing of jobs continues and the food stamps issue indicates this. The trickle down economics has a big cement dam on it.

    No, because the rich keep getting richer and the working poor get poorer.

    Most people who get food stamps also have jobs. But they are paid such low wages they can't even afford food.

    Meanwhile people like Mitt pay 11% in income taxes on $21 million of unearned income.

    Of course if the Republicans had been in charge there wouldn't even be any food stamps and wealth disparity would be even worse.

    Yeah, he has spread the wealth to the point of destroying much of our ability to create wealth. One has to wonder what his real goal is. I really don't think Obama is stupid so I have to ask the reasons for his destructive actions.

    Obama never pledged to spread the wealth, thus, your premise is based on outright distortion and falsehood.

    In the real world, just because you say something is true, does not mean that it IS true.
