    Default Obama: Paul Ryan's Budget is Nothing But Thinly Veiled Social Darwinism

    WASHINGTON -- In remarks later Tuesday, President Barack Obama will slam the Republican budget plan put forward by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) as "nothing but thinly veiled Social Darwinism."

    "It's a Trojan Horse," Obama will say during remarks at an Associated Press Luncheon, according to excerpts released by the White House.

    "Disguised as [a] deficit reduction plan, it's really an attempt to impose a radical vision on our country. It's nothing but thinly-veiled Social Darwinism. It's antithetical to our entire history as a land of opportunity and upward mobility for everyone who's willing to work for it -- a place where prosperity doesn't trickle down from the top, but grows outward from the heart of the middle class. And by gutting the very things we need to grow an economy that's built to last -- education and training; research and development -- it's a prescription for decline," the president will say.

    The kids are all into "social justice" these days.

    Off topic, but something I've always wondered. Why is it that the left screams and rants about teaching and embracing evolution, but when real world "evolution" occurs (free market economics, "social darwinism"), it's all aboard the Rage Bus?

    I wonder how just how many American voters are actually aware that this is the second year in a row that a budget proposal from Obama has received 0 votes in Congress? Since the media won't do it, I hope the GOP really hammers this point home. The attack ads write themselves: "Obama's budget: Even Democrats won't vote for it".

    I am pretty sure he proposed such budget for a purpose to rally radical left against GOP. Obama's aim is not to make America better, Obama's aim is to divide us and rule.

    Because evolution is the survival of the fittest, not the survival of the people born into rich families and or good neighborhoods with preferably white skin.
    Inequality at the onset negates the possibility of "evolution".
