Obama Says 'Nobody Wants A Handout' - While Promoting Gov't Give-Aways

By Craig Bannister | May 24, 2012 | 6:47pm EDT

Pres. Obama told Iowa voters today that "Nobody wants a handout. Nobody wants something for nothing" - while outlining all the things his administration wants to give them if Republicans would just get out of the way.

Obama, speaking at a wind manufacturer in Newton, Iowa, Obama claimed that "nobody a handout." But, then he outlined his plans to give them to them, anyway.

Obama was trying to sell at least three give-aways in his speech:

  1. "GIVE every responsible homeowner...the opportunity to save over $3,000 by refinancing at a lower rate,
  2. "Help small business owners by GIVING them a tax break for hiring more workers and paying them higher wages,"
  3. Extend the tax breaks we're currently GIVING to clean-energy companies

And, maybe, nobody WANTS a handout, or something for nothing, but the administration seems to be generous about giving them (the Stimulus, "Cash-For-Clunkers," extending the student loan interest rate suppression, etc.).
