Is he kidding? Has Obama’s demagoguery really come to this – standing on a balcony at the White House with Michelle, ripping on the founding fathers because they owned property? You can almost see Lenin’s ghost partying alongside the rock band The Killers and eating hot dogs:
We celebrate the principles that are timeless, tenets first declared by men of property and wealth but which gave rise to what Lincoln called a new birth of freedom in America-civil rights and voting rights, workers’ rights and women’s rights, and the rights of every American. And on this day that is uniquely American we are reminded that our Declaration, our example, made us a beacon to the world.
All megalomaniacs succumb at some point to delusion and their wings turn to wax hurling them toward the ground. And Barack Obama may not fare any better – look at poor Al Gore. But before the downfall their hypocrisy reaches Dantesque proportions. Lord Barry and Lady Michelle raked in 5.5 million last year. His home is worth 1.6 million. They’ve spent tens of thousands on date nights and millions on obesity programs while the One and his family visit cupcake bakeries and hamburger joints.
Are the Obamas entitled and the founding fathers just more slave-owning “typical white” people? Whatever Obama’s motivation, he’s flying too close to the sun, he’s getting careless. The American people may be easy marks for a while, but these kinds of disparaging remarks about the patriots that gave their lives so he could stand on that balcony will not prevail. The president better take a good look at those 2009 tax returns.
