Everyone go home, you've made enough money.

Hey everyone... set a goal. Go out and accomplish that goal and then quit your job and go home! Apparently, enough is enough. Those of us who can afford BMWs have made enough money and it is time to give it all back!

I saw this on the news, I thought it was absolutely ridiculous...All of the wealthy people that i know have worked there ass all the way up the ladder to get to where they are today. For someone to say "that is enough" is absurd and socialistic

If there is a case to made on when is enough a enough it would be taxes. There should be a life time limit on how much taxes you pay. Once you meet you life time maximum that's it you can't be taxed.

Why cap a persons potential? That's what made the US the superpower we are.... F-ing ridiculous....

This kind of BS comes out from people who have never had to meet a payroll once & has only collected checks from good old Uncle Sam all of their lives.

This is populism. People are pissed at Wall St, and rhetoric like this gets them off. I would wager testicle that he doesn't actually believe that anyone should be capped on how much they make.

He is the president of the United States... letting the words "you've made enough money" leave your mouth is down right stupid.

Bush's lack of a filter was indeed scary because it showed that the guy had the IQ of a rock. Obama's lack of a filter is even scarier IMO because the guy does have a brain, and therefore knows exactly what he is saying. Some of the shit that consciously comes out of his mouth just has no place coming from the President.

Here is the whole quote:

Quote:
"We’re not, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money. But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if you’re providing a good product or providing good service. We don’t want people to stop, ah, fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy."
This is why biased sound bytes are retarded. You know why that person cut out the rest of it in that clip? Because the rest makes the statement not sound nearly as bad.

What Obama is saying:

He personally believes that you can make enough money, but he knows that the American way is to continue to make stuff and continue to sell it if it's a good product, and we cannot allow that to end because we wouldn't be able to function as a society.

I grow weary of people taking tiny little quotes and making them sound worse than they really are. This is why political parties need to just die already.

You know this is a discussion on politics, right?!!

Easy there college ... there you go with your well-worded responses, and thoughts. Man, you elitists are all the same with your fancy words and facts. Next thing you are going to tell me that Obama doesn't really want to take away my gunz.

You are putting words in his mouth to mitigate the stupidity. Regardless of what service is being offered or product is being manufactured, if we as a people believe that some have "made enough money" we are putting limitations on other peoples aspirations. Which we have ABSOLUTELY no right to do. You don't hear him telling his BFF Oprah or Soros that they have "made enough money". Gimme a break. He says what his current audience wants to hear. In this case, he made an error in judgment.

If you are using the term "Best Friend Forever" in a political discussion, you have failed miserably. I will ignore your posts from here on out Ashley Simpson.

exactly...normally I don't like the sound bytes either, but in this case I didn't really care because there was absolutely nothing he could have said afterwards to justify that statement.

HAHA LMFAO, I heard the video stop where it did and was like I KNOW that it was stopped there on purpose. What a bunch of idiots to take something out of context to try and make it sound the exact opposite of how it was actually said.

Truly ignorant, and that's from someone who doesn't even know if the president is republican or democrat or what I am.

But whichever group is providing those video clips are absolute ignorant fools.
