Obama: Love of Rich People Binds Republicans Together

by Keith Koffler on February 25, 2013, 3:17 pm

Here’s what President Obama told Al Sharpton Thursday, I guess on Sharpton’s radio show. I don’t know, I don’t listen to it:

My sense is that their basic view is that nothing is important enough to raise taxes on wealthy individuals or corporations, and they would prefer to see these kinds of cuts that could slow down our recovery over closing tax loopholes. And that’s the thing that binds their party together at this point.

Here’s the audio:

So this is what it comes down to for a president who is supposedly some kind of rare intellectual: Democrats are for the poor, and Republicans are for the rich. Those hateful Republicans would rather swamp the country in the flood of catastrophes unleashed by the sequester than have to look their friends in the face at the Country Club and admit they did something for regular people.

This is low minded thinking and politics, worthy of a Chicago ward alderman, said both to obsequiously please Sharpton – and because Obama believes it.

We’re already clearing brush from the low road, getting ready for 2014.

You mean there are actually people who believe that Barack is a “rare intellectual”? HAHAHAHA.

Barack Obama reminds me of the club tennis player who sashays around the club lounge wearing Fila’s finest but can’t hit a backhand, or a forehand, or a serve, or anything. If you didn’t know anything about tennis you might even think he was a good player.

Great points. . .and who paid for his “education” to make him a “rare intellectual”?

He may try to pass himself off as “book smart” but he’s really just a smart a$$ with absolutely no common sense at all.

Langley Spook February 25, 2013 at 5:22 pm

BTW… what was “Barack Hussein Obama” GPA at Columbia Univ. or Harvard Law…?

GotFreedom February 25, 2013 at 9:05 pm

Does anyone even know. . .as a side note, we were hounded last year by the Census bureau for not filling out the extremely invasive American Community Survey. . .on one of their inquiries we wrote that when Barack Hussein Obama shows America ALL of his records/personal info/background/answers all our questions about who/what/he is/where he came from/associated with, then, we might consider answering the American Community Survey but until then, according to the Constitution, all we are required to tell you is how many people live here. . .

So, BHO, you show us yours and then maybe we’ll show you ours!

TroyC February 25, 2013 at 3:44 pm

I would love for someone to ask this Marxist a simple question:
If the world is going to come to an end if we cut 2% of the budget, what the hell does the other 98% pay for?

Langley Spook February 25, 2013 at 3:53 pm

Barack Hussein Obama = a “rich person” (Millions of $ made from his book)
So whats the problem…?

GotFreedom February 25, 2013 at 4:03 pm

WOW. . .isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black (and yes, I went there!!!)

So sick and tired of his “do as I say, not as I do” speeches. . .blah, blah, blah!!!

Hey Barack, if Dems/you/your party are so for the poor, why haven’t we seen you go golfing with some of the homeless folks who camp out in the parks/metro stations in/around DC instead of your uber rich buddy Tiger?

If you and your “party” are so concerned about the poor, why did MO/girls go to CO for skiing. . .why not take a walk over to Connecticut and K to volunteer at the shelter for the “Homeless and Disabled Vets” (and while you’re at it, check out all the homeless folks in Farragut Sq); or walk on over a block up from St. John’s church, you know the one you like to strut on over to when you need a religious photo op and go volunteer at the “National Alliance to End Homelessness” instead of squandering the tax payers $$$ on lavish vacas and trips to hang with Hollywood fat cats.

And who paid for that gaudy dress that MO wore last night. . .do you know how many folks could be fed with the $$$ it cost?

Lying narcissistic hypocrite!

ColoComment February 25, 2013 at 4:10 pm

I have never felt that Obamahas ever conducted himself as the President of all of us, here in the United States. He has always been the President only of the Left.
I have not ever had that feeling before with regard to any past President, even Carter or Clinton.

Jeff1000 February 25, 2013 at 4:32 pm

That’s a “rare intellectual” for ya. HAHAHAHAHA.

DeniseVB February 25, 2013 at 4:33 pm

I’m worried about 2014 because Obama won re-election in 2012. That should not have happened. Did I say I’m worried ? You betcha’.

SAllen February 25, 2013 at 6:53 pm

DemiseVB you do mirror my feelings about what is going to happen; the GOP is going to have to get “it together” for sure to win the senate back! Why are all these people arguing??? The goal should be to defeat the Obama regime (or kingdom) in the 2014 elections. I can’t believe that I worked so hard, talked to people, sent in money and I WAS SURE beyond a “shadow of doubt” that he would be defeated” I think that with all the people that just didn’t vote, we got stuck again!

Lizzy February 25, 2013 at 8:03 pm

Denise I’ve had insomnia since the second time Obama took power.
He’s a very dangerous man surrounded by like minded idiots example
Kerry and Clinton. Worried to be sure.

DeniseVB February 25, 2013 at 4:40 pm

This article from the NYDN has haunted me since 2009 when it was published….the Obamas couldn’t even balance the family budget:

In their 5th year of his Presidency, I keep thinking about this. Over and over, because had Sarah Palin ran their family budget like this, she would have been called, well, stupid?

veritaseequitas February 25, 2013 at 5:03 pm

Low minded thinking and politics from a weak and lazy mind. Quite the combo for the “smartest man in the room,” not to mention the leader of the free world.
Somebody please remind me how the hell he got elected not once but twice? I still can’t believe it happened.

Scottso February 25, 2013 at 5:18 pm

The President is probably right…
I am not so Sure about Republicans but certainly Conservatives we ARE for the Rich.

And guess what? We want everyone to be RICH! Filthy capitalistic rich!

The President loves the poor. He doesn’t want anyone to be rich. He wants the current rich to become part of the poor.

His policies show that he loves the poor, and wants everyone to be in that demographic.

Langley Spook February 25, 2013 at 5:24 pm

…isnt that goal of “socialism”?

Scottso February 26, 2013 at 8:49 am

Actually i think the goal of socialism is government enforced equality which of course can’t be achieved.

Obama’s goal is economic oppression.

Martha Trowbridge February 26, 2013 at 10:54 am

Respectfully, I disagree. Obama does not love the poor. He loves to USE them for his political agenda.

Misscheryl February 25, 2013 at 5:22 pm

What a jerk. This despicable weasel is nothing more than a puppet for George Soros. Drudge is linking to a story about Preezy selling access to himself for $500K donations to some phony nonprofit the grifters set up for themselves. Probably the same nonprofit that is paying people to protest for a gun law that already passed in New York, and paying for his “former digital strategist” to spam Republican congressmen with twitter-bots for gun control.

MichelleIndependent February 25, 2013 at 5:29 pm

Rare intellectual. Hahahaha Barry is so smart that he hides his grades.

Star February 25, 2013 at 5:37 pm

This was a few days ago–so stupid it makes your teeth grow hair.

srdem65 February 25, 2013 at 5:51 pm

PresidentObama was talking to RevSharpton on a radio program directed at black listeners when he said that. What he meant, what they know he meant was that Repubs only like rich, White people,
When MrObama identifies himself as a Black man, even though he is hardly that, he is claiming an affinity for the Black community that he sees as poor and not likely to be anything else as long as the rich White Repubs don’t do what he wants. He doesn’t promise that things will be better for them with his Presidency, he doesn’t have to do that. They don’t care as long as rich White people suffer.

They hear him. They know where the food stamps come from – him. Their phones are “obama phones”. Free health care is on it’s way and he’s making rich White people pay for it. He’s worried that rich White people are keeping Blacks from voting all over America and he’s going to stop them from doing that. They hear him, love him and support him, no matter what he does, how much money he has in the bank or even if he destroys the foundation of America one brick at a time. He’s one of them.

The Black community says that MrsObama is beautiful, so smart, generous, sexy, better than any First Lady before her because she is one of them. They identify with her, with her struggle to look White, to act White, to talk White because they know that’s the only way a Black woman can succeed in life and they believe that. She’s one of them.

What MrObama has done is create, not a race war, but a race conflict that he directs and orchestrates with every speech. He asks that the Black community have his back, support him against the rich White people who would bring him down. So, they do. He can do no wrong, he can be enormously wealthy, live a lifestyle they don’t even dream of while they huddle in their Section 8 housing and try to make their food supply last to the end of the month.

It will always be a mystery of how America came to be a racist nation in 2008 when they elected a proclaimed Black man to the Presidency. Popular culture then dictated that any criticism of this President wasn’t just a political argument, but a hateful racial comment. White people are now supposed to be ashamed of their whiteness, their background, their work ethic and accept all the blame for the failure of the modern Black community’s state of affairs.
History writers will be as confused as we are now.

DeniseVB February 25, 2013 at 7:48 pm

How is it we have such great respect for Herman Cain, Alan West, Mia Love and Dr. Ben Carson ? Hope the media lapdogs get it together soon. I don’t see color, only content of character, why won’t they?

rulierose February 25, 2013 at 9:08 pm

ah, but don’t you remember what Bill Maher said during the campaign? supporting Herman Cain and Allen West actually proves our racism, because we only like “non-threatening” blacks–that is, those still on the Democrat plantation.

Lindy February 25, 2013 at 8:53 pm

Moochelle seems to be following in the footsteps of many black entertainers with the fake Asian hair, cosmetic surgeries, and skin lightening, Compare photos of her from five years ago and those taken recently. She’s almost unrecognizable. She’s trying her best to “pass” yet white people are evil? Sure.

Michael February 25, 2013 at 5:53 pm

He’s putting the black top on the road for 2016/2018 elections. He never cared about YOU. It’s HIM.

Boo February 25, 2013 at 6:17 pm

I heard this soundbite last week and was immediately struck by the many ers. uhs, ahs and other hesitations. I realize he did not have his handy-dandy teleprompter at hand, but the gaps between words seemed much looooooonger than usual. Would have thought he had his talking points better memorized by now. Ear piece? Drugs? Also, where are the 75% of the “folks” who agree with him re. raising taxes.

rulierose February 25, 2013 at 9:15 pm

this is so incredibly hypocritical I find it hard to write about it.

rich people are only evil if they’re Republicans. Jeffrey Immelt, Obama’s pet CEO, is a perfectly fine rich person. so is Harvey Weinstein, one of the many self-hating (or just deluded) Hollywood Jews who inexplicably continue to support Obama despite his contempt for Israel.

so are Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins and the rest of the Hollywood mega-millionaires who protested with the Occupy crowd and railed about “the 1%” as they rocked their $7,000 Birkin bags and $500 sneakers.

and so are the guys at Facebook, which paid no tax last year. NO tax. (just like the aforementioned Immelt.)

I could go on, but you get the picture. if you’re an FOB (friend of Barack) you’re one of the good guys, no matter how many millions you have.

A few of Michelle Obama’s rich white democrat friends and hosts during her recent Aspen holiday with the princesses and a “few friends”


MsSarge February 26, 2013 at 9:39 am

How bout we raise Obama’s taxes and every other “wealthy” politician???

Martha Trowbridge February 26, 2013 at 10:51 am

Do you know that Al Sharpton was groomed by Obama’s biological “Uncle Fred” Newman?? Fred – NYC radical socialist activist, political schemer? The guy who got Bloomberg elected mayor? Fred Newman ran three Presidential campaigns for black candidates before he masterminded his nephew’s 2008 Presidential Campaign.

PS: Sonia Sotomayor is another one of Fred’s proteges. Her known association with Fred was raised as problematic during her confirmation process.

Actually, this is true. I just had dinner with a bunch of mega-wealthy people, and I pretended I was a Romney supporter to fit in. These people really don’t care about the poor, hungry, malnourished. They are blind to the true suffering that is going on right here in America. A few notable quotes: “People under 30 don’t need to go to a doctor”… “No one in America goes bankrupt from medical bills”… “Obama is a stupid idiot”. All this, while sipping expensive wine and eating like kings. They call themselves Christian, but I didn’t see anything Christ-like about them.
