Angry Obama's speech to college students 7/2/13, Do not celebrate 4th of July

http://thelibertypaper.org/2013/07/0...ourth-of-july/

As the country prepares to celebrate its independence from Great Britain President Obama had a completely different message for a group of Congressional Summer interns in Washington:

Obama Speaks to Congressional Summer Interns
“America is a great country. There is no denying this. However, I caution you all as you step forward in your careers. Peer back into history and ask yourselves- Was a revolution truly necessary? Great Britain may not have had it completely right, but they had many things right. Take taxes for example. If your neighbor makes $1 Million a year, but you and your family can barely keep the heat on should he not help your family? God instructs us to help our neighbors. He does not instruct us to look down upon them though the windows of capitalism. Why then on the Fourth of July should you celebrate such a radical break from what is Godly and just? No doubt there are many voices warning you of the harm of big government. They are wrong. Government can provide you with what family and friends cannot. If this is gone what will you have?”
Many in the crowd seemed uneasy, and desperate for some sort of clarification. Julie Barks, an intern from Louisiana State University, asked President Obama, “Are you saying we should not celebrate the birth of our country?”
President Obama responded, ”I believe we should celebrate where we are going. Celebrate moving forward. Not where we have been.”

You do know that it is satire, right?

Be safe (and don't fall for it).

To the OP, nice try at making Obama look bad, but next time stick to facts rather than fiction.

Ya I missed that, oh well can't win them all. As for the part about making Obama look bad, hate to rain on your parade but he does a great job of that himself.

I was not defending Obama. I was stating that trying to discredit him with fiction was ineffective and foolish.

It's a sad truth that if it weren't marked as satire, and blatantly so, we'd have accepted it because not one among us is able to say Obama WOULDN'T say those very things to students. It's no worse than things he's already said and done.

I had someone show this to me and after reading a few sentences I quickly looked over the article and found satire.

I just read what the OP posted, didn't look at the actual article. Honestly wouldn't have surprised me if it was true.
