Unnamed source, eh...
I googled the phrase, and all I found were right-wing propaganda outlets, who also did not appear to know the original source.

Not very convinced that it wasn't made up as a talking point by right-wing propagandists, and at any rate, the quote doesn't make a whole lot of sense itself. It seems to imply that Obama's spending "your" money, and this makes him unique somehow (are the Republicans going to abolish all taxes?).

"Your" money doesn't belong to you. The government created it, and the government should decide what to do with it.

Sounds like something John Stossel would say...I really hate that man.

Plus, its not President Obama who solely decides where our tax dollars go...in fact, hold up a mirror...it's us! If our political system is flawed and we have nobody to blame but our own ignorant indifferent obese selves.

Makes me think a lot about this:

If you don't feel like watching, meaning, I guess this probably made up quote is regarding the 'insult' Obama mentioned in his speech about not being born with a silver spoon in his mouth, which he has done consistently for the last three years, and Steve Doocy from Fox News, while talking to Romney, told Romney Obama said this, except he added "Unlike some people," which was then quoted by the New York and Washington Post.

So, apprently the quote mentioned really appeared in a letter to the editor in The Dallas Morning news by a douche from Plano called Allen Shaffer. Source: How much does Romney's wealth matter to the rest of us? | Letters to the Editor | dallasnews.com

Good one, Allen.

I wonder though... If Obama was using your money to help people, and Romney was using his own money to greedily take control of the country to support his big money-making friends, then you should probably be more concered with Romney's private money... not to say that any of this is the case.
