“The good news is that, according to the Obama administration, the rich will pay for everything. The bad news is that, according to the Obama administration, you’re rich.” — P. J. O’Rourke
“Marijuana trafficking is illegal under federal law, and it’s illegal for banks to deal with marijuana sale proceeds under federal law. Only Congress can change these laws. The administration can’t change the law with a memo.” — Sen. Chuck Grassley (Obama Administration Clears Banks To Accept Funds From Legal Marijuana Dealers)
“I can do whatever I want.” — Barack Obama
“President Obama will be spending Valentine’s Day with the one he loves the most. Michelle and the kids will be vacationing separately.” — Michael Ramirez
We can’t be sure when the adolescent Barry developed his animus toward the wealthy. Of course, the adult Obama, despite frequent rants against the well-to-do, doesn’t seem to mind cavorting in their playgrounds, as long as they’re well-to-do Democrats. And as long as they’re willing to swing some of the boodle his way.
Inequality in America is a terrible thing, unless it results in a nice afternoon at a golf course so private that “uncrowded” does not begin to describe the solitude a presidential foursome can enjoy. Few things in this world are more unequally enjoyed than the luxury of a personal golf course. But our inequality-hating president found the time to enjoy one yesterday … President Obama is going golfing on Sunday at a private course owned by billionaire Oracle chief executive Larry Ellison …
The ultra-rich are not and never will be the real target of Democratic Party rants against inequality. Instead, they reserve their venom for the hard-working entrepreneurial and technical/professional classes who seek to rise from upper middle-class ranks into bourgeois affluence. These strivers are the real enemy because they give the lie to the cant of victimhood and unfairness that mobilizes the Democrat voting base. (American Thinker)
While Barry hit the Left Coast links, Missus Mooch and the little meeches were busy annoying the locals in Aspen. “She likes it here,” said Sheriff Joe DiSalvo, presumably referring to the resort skiing and not the county lock-up, wherein any sensible nation would have long since installed her.
Liberals, of course, are quick to characterize any criticism of the luxury-loving First Family as racist. And besides, it’s all Bush’s fault — the predictable fallback positions of the intellectually bereft Left. Said one:
“Obama critics will find a way to rationalize and justify their anger against the first lady and the president for daring to take a vacation here and there, but the fact remains, they have so far spent less taxpayer money than George and Laura Bush …
They don’t like progress or change, and want to take the country back to the 1950s. Because that was such a freedom-loving time, what with Joe McCarthy, sexism and racism being strongholds of society.”
The inconvenient truth that leftists are always loathe to acknowledge is that Tailgunner Joe was right, the federal government was riddled with Reds during the 1950s. Same as Obama’s administration is now. And if “progress and change” means the agenda-driven left-wing policies that are currently destroying America’s middle class, then they’re correct. We don’t like them. But when Michelle Obama hits the slopes next winter while we lumpens shiver in our huts because of her husband’s arbitrarily imposed “clean coal” regulations, maybe then we’ll reflect on just how fortunate we were to have elected a community organizer to shepherd us into his brave new world. That is, if “global warming” doesn’t freeze us to death first.
