Video: Sen. Coburn, Obama’s “Intent is to Create Dependency Because it Worked So Well for Him”

by Ben Johnson, The White House Watch

Sen. Tom Coburn, R-OK, answered a recent question by saying Barack Obama is promoting government dependence because federal programs promoted him to the presidency. Coburn said, “As an African-American man, coming through the progress and everything he experienced, he got tremendous benefit through a lot of these programs.” His life experience, Coburn said, convinced him government programs were the road to progress for a whole segment of society.

If the audio is a bit fuzzy, the message is crystal clear. Affirmative Action has consequences. One of them is our current president, who was consistently promoted beyond his competence through discriminatory policies. As the “special one,” he got used to receiving praise unalloyed with the faintest hint of criticism, a practice he expects his political opponents to continue. This unmeritorious process of government-sanctioned praise and advancement convinced him to double-down on government at all levels. It should also convince conservatives that even Affirmative Action “success stories” are counterproductive. Reverse discrimination must end.
