I used to lament the fact that we no longer have a president who can speak on his own without being spoon-fed words via teleprompter. Now, however, I’m glad for it. Obama’s reliance on being fed his words makes him unable to speak extemporaneously without revealing his true beliefs. He did so again, when he decided to ad lib during a speech on Wall Street reform, and his old favorite—redistribution of wealth—came to the forefront. From Hot Air (video clip after the jump):
We’re not, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money. But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if you’re providing a good product or providing good service. We don’t want people to stop, ah, fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy.
Evidently our pay is not above his pay grade. Oh, really, President Obama? If you are so worried about people who’ve “made enough money,” you may want to have talk with a few people. Here’s a tip for you: start with George Soros. You’re welcome.
This is what Obama and his administration honestly believes. Having never worked a day in the private sector in their lives, they can only manage to put on big boy pants, but not to also act like big boys. As such, their naive view of the world and its “unfairness” reigns supreme and clouds absolutely every part of their agenda. To the point where apparently no one has told him that deciding how much money anyone makes is not his job and is, in fact, antithetical to the core principles of our nation.
Not only is he prancing around giving speeches about evil Wall Street, filled with feel-good nonsense and super serious faces that even those who voted for him no longer believe, but he’s doing so when people are huddled around staring dejectedly at a one page classified section. You know, Obama, people would like to make some money, reaching your apparent “too much” threshold or not, to provide for their families. Demonizing business isn’t going to do that. You know what will? Stop bailing out poorly run businesses. Stop regulating the good ones out of business.
Stop taxing them out of employing people.
I mean, at some point, hasn’t the government made enough money?
