Barack said if your neighbor's house is burning, you should help put it out, because it might affect your house. No! You put the house out because its the right thing to do, because someone may be inside and need help getting out alive. Because you are thinking about someone other than yourself. No, Barack, we don't put out the fire because we are thinking about our own stuff.
Here is the Barack quote:
“If your neighbor’s house is burning, you’re not gonna spend a whole lot of time saying ‘well, that guy was always irresponsible. He always left the stove on. He always was smoking in bed,’” ... “All those things may be true, but his house could end up affecting your house.” “We’ve got to make sure that we put the fire out and then go start making sure that these folks stop leaving the stove on.”
If you keep this analogy, its more like the Democratics ran into my house left the stove on, and then helped me put out the fire when they realized there house might be in trouble too. And now they want credit for helping save their house from burning too.
That's what happens when you take major money from F&F to ignore the stove being on.
