Income Inequality and the Imperious Presidency: An Opinion From a Bitter Clinger Out Here in the “Wilderness”

Obama (King Louis) and Michelle (Marie)You have heard the story of Maria Antoinette, right?

Sometime around 1789, after being told that her French subjects had no bread, Marie-Antoinette (bride of France’s King Louis XVI) supposedly, snottily sniffed, “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche”—“Let them eat cake.” After that imperious and insensitive remark, the queen became a hated symbol of the decadent monarchy and threw gasoline on the fire of a revolution that would cause her to literally lose her head several years later.

After enduring 5 years of the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama and the First Wookie, err…Lady, Michelle “Mooch” Obama, my opinion is that they make Louis and Marie look like pikers.

You can’t say we weren’t warned, though.

Back in April of 2008, Democrat Presidential Candidate Barack Hussein Obama, spoke the following words during a fundraiser in Pennsylvania:

You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them.

And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

The imperious, better-than-you attitude of the First Family is the stuff legends are made of.   And. not the good kind…

Black Conservative Pundit, Mychal Massie, reported the other day,  that

Obama unfathomably sang the blues that Michelle Obama didn’t get paid for her duties “even though that’s a tough job.” But he omitted the fact that she has twenty-six attendants (i.e., staff) at an annual cost to taxpayers of $1,750,000. That includes a hair dresser and the same make-up artist Oprah uses who charges $15,000 per day for his services. Actually I’m surprised she didn’t try to put her daughters on her payroll insofar as she lied and named them as staff when she took her taxpayer-funded African safari where she ate her way through the jungle.

Then there was the DailyMail.co.uk story that revealed just how hard it is for Michelle in her life as a public servant in the role of First Lady, “Michelle Obama Accused Of Spending $10m In Public Money On Vacations.” This included “expensive massages, top shelf vodka, and five-star hotels.” The article, which was written in August 2011, reported that she had “spent $10 million of U.S. taxpayers’ money on vacations alone in the past year. Branding her ‘disgusting’ and ‘a vacation junkie’, they say the [then] 47-year-old mother-of-two has been indulging in five-star hotels, where she splashes out on expensive massages and alcohol. The ‘top source’ told the National Enquirer: ‘It’s disgusting. Michelle is taking advantage of her privileged position while the most hardworking Americans can barely afford a week or two off work.”  

The DailyMail article quoting a source specifically noted, “Michelle also enjoys drinking expensive booze during her trips. She favours martinis with top-shelf vodka and has a taste for rich sparkling wines. … The vacations are totally Michelle’s idea. She’s like a junkie. She can’t schedule enough getaways, and she lives one to the next — all the while sticking it to hardworking Americans.” There were the separate presidential jets that had them arrive 4 hours apart on the same day for their lavish Martha’s Vineyard vacation at a substantial cost to taxpayers. A vacation where she ate, drank, and spent, as Obama was reported to have read books “about porn kings and gangsters”…

Also recently, First Lady Michelle Obama continued her snobbery and her condescension of us “bitter clingers” in “Flyover Country”, during a DNCC Woman’s Luncheon at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, California.

…So make no mistake about it, it matters who we elect to represent us in Washington. It matters. And right now, we are just 17 seats away from winning back the House of Representatives — 17 seats. (Applause.) But I’m also going to be straight with you: Most districts in this country are not like San Francisco. (Laughter.) And we have a lot of tight races in other parts of California and all across the country. And every single one of these seats matters. Every single vote in the House of Representatives matters, because so many critically important issues come before our Congress.

… So we need you to dig deep. We need you to max out. And once you’ve given what you can, then we need you to go out there and volunteer. Leave San Francisco. (Laughter.) Leave this bastion. Go out into the wilderness. (Laughter.) And roll up your sleeves, because we know that those person-to-person contacts, those calls and doors knocked on, all of that can also mean the difference between victory and defeat.

I find the Obamas’ upper-crust attitude and lifestyle extremely hypocritical , considering their push against  “Income Inequality” and Obama’s inclusion of Class Warfare in every single speech he gives.

But, then again, Marxist Leaders have always preached in favor of “Spreading the Wealth Around” and led extravagant lifestyles.

Until He Comes,

  1. KJ, I enjoyed reading about the Mooch’s excesses at taxpayer expense, but I think you meant “….push against income INEQUALITY” instead of “EQUALITY” in next to last paragraph, right?
