Never before in the history of our nation has the population been so divided along economic lines. Wealth envy and class warfare are tearing a nation that once believed in hard work, sacrifice and personal responsibility, into one where wealth redistribution is not only promised, but demanded by those who have learned to play the system. Leading from behind on this issue is President Obama. He has gone to great lengths to convince millions of gullible Americans that the nation only works for rich people and that the rich are systematically oppressing the poor. Never from President Obama do you hear about the success stories that made this nation the most prosperous on earth, nor do you ever hear important messages concerning the issue of taking responsibility for yourself. Instead he fans the flames of the so called “have not’s” in order to keep a support base which demands he implement “social change” in the name of total equality. One would not be too far off arguing that he is truly putting the infamous “Cloward and Piven” plan in motion.
While the president continues to play the class warfare game, little attention is paid to the fact that he is among the rich that he convinces his loyal followers to hate. The president’s net worth is estimated to be 11.8 million dollars. Its claimed that the president amassed this wealth through the sales of his two books, “Dreams of my Father” and “The Audacity of Hope.” Perhaps, though they really are not that good and have since been discredited as it appears weather underground terrorist Bill Ayers wrote at least one of them. Personally, I don’t have a problem with Obama’s net worth, not until he starts playing his class envy, identity politics games anyway. (Though, it should be noted that democrats that typically push class envy are among the richest in government.) The fact is that the president’s annual salary is $400,000.00, which means as president, Obama has made roughly two million. It would be interesting to see how the president is earning the rest of that money.
Given the net worth of the Obama family and the fact that they are constantly fanning the flames of financial discontent, is it any wonder the nation finds itself outraged by Michelle Obama’s latest, lavish Chinese vacation? Flying on a government aircraft with her two daughters and mother, Mrs. Obama is spending tax payer money to flatter the Chinese with her presence, while her husband continues to call everyday Americans who are struggling to make a living, greedy and selfish for not wanting their taxes raised, or, for opposing obamacare. (Lowercase o on purpose) This blatant hypocrisy will be the true legacy of the Obama presidency as everything the man has involved himself in has been nothing but smooth double talk from a master of Chicago style hard ball politics. The real slap in the face comes with the knowledge that Queen Michelle will not only spend someone else’s money on her illustrious vacations, but she has the audacity to tell the press they can’t interview her while doing so. Just who do these people think they are?
