What is enough money?

I am sure that it looks bad. But in a different context it can mean something. Remember the Wall Street movie? The guy wanted to make more money liquidating the company (along with the jobs) than to take the risk of operating it (it wasn't dead). That's the kind of behaviour from WS that needs to be eliminated and in this regard, these words make sense.

The real kicker is that the 'people who have made enough money already' pay almost all of the taxes!

Exactly. And this is the point the reconsiles both parts of Obama's full quote. HE thinks you have made enough money but he needs you to keep making it to pay for everyone else under his socialistic agenda. The read-between-the-lines point is that you have made "enough" money and therefore you can now be taxed at ridiculously high percentages to pay for everyones entitlements in his nanny state.

50% of Americans now pay NO TAXES! 70% collect more from the government than they pay in! That leaves 3/10 people to pay for everything.

He is a socialist, if you don't see this, you are uninformed and NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

Regardless of what was said after that quote, the quote itself, coming from the man himself, exemplifies perfectly what his opponents have been saying about him from Day 1. And please don't ask me to tell you what I mean by that, as I know that you are all aware.

You can analyze it ALL you want, but that kind of fodder is too good to pass up.

Is he going to come out and tell everyone straight up that he believes that the redistribution of wealth and opportunity on a large scale is what is best for this country, and that the government knows how to utilize my paycheck better than I do? Of course not. But quotes like this sure do lend his ideals to this end, and you're crazy if you think that people like me, and any other Republican for that matter are going to ignore them.
