Jay Carney, President Obama’s unplugged Teleprompter, blew it big time this morning at news briefing. According to AP, he committed a massive double faux pas when he said, “I believe the phrase from the Bible is, ‘The Lord helps those who help themselves’. And I think the point the President is making is that we should — we have it within our capacity to do the things to help the American people.”
The problems he self-created are: (1) the phrase does not appear in the Bible. It may be implied, but the phrase itself is not there. (2) He is confusing the Lord with the White House, or government in general.
The White House is more concerned with creating an on-going government dependency for those who chose not to help themselves under the guise of remedy. Complacency and dependency breed more Democrat voters. Take from those who have worked and earned and give enough to the idle to keep their mumbling and grumbling from becoming outright street riots. That, by the way, is no longer working with the OWS crowd.
Right now, high unemployment is the key to maintaining a deep and enduring psychological reliance on others with those in Washington D.C. and the White House, in particular, perceived to be the potential saviors. The uninformed are little aware that the plan is to continue, or even reduce, the number of available jobs in this nation. Jobs are a “wealth” that must be distributed globally.
