In the classic movie “History of the World Part 1,” Mel Brooks famously said, “It’s good to be the king!” He was playing King Louis XVI, the French monarch who eventually lost his head over his excesses while the people suffered. Democrats enjoy acting like they are the peasants in the modern-day version of that struggle, but nothing could be further from the truth. Although they may talk a good game, “Let them eat cake” is their mantra … only, since they seek to control everything we do, including what we eat, it’s sugar-free carrot cake.

Corruption starts at the top.

The best thing President Obama ever did for his financial security was run for public office. A man of relatively moderate means who was able to afford his home in a wealthy Chicago neighborhood only because he got “help” from his good friend and convicted felon Tony Rezko, is now a multi-multi-millionaire who will easily make more than $100 million after he leaves office. That’s one bit of wealth he won’t be spreading around.

Sitting on a pile of cash with no real personal expenses while living in luxury on our dime, Barack Obama didn’t burn a single calorie to help his brother, George, in his time of need. Author Dinesh D’Souza, who met George while making the documentary “2016: Obama’s America,” sent him $1000 to ensure medical treatment for George’s son.

You’d think a man who spends the money of others so freely might peel off a couple of days’ pay to save the life of his nephew, especially when he has so much. But you’d be wrong.

Study after study has shown conservatives to be far more charitable than liberals … with their own money, that is. No one will out-give a liberal when it comes to someone else’s money, even if that person isn’t born yet. But when it comes to their own money, liberals such as President Obama can’t be bothered even to help their own family.

The battle over sequester – a slight decrease in the rate of increase in annual government spending – exemplifies how Democrats act like a child hearing the word “no” for their first time.

The government must implement – at most -- $44 billion in “cuts” this year. Half comes from the Pentagon. As for the rest, the president seems to want to deliberately implement them in the most visible, painful way possible –a liberal temper tantrum that rivals anything you’ve ever seen a 5-year-old do in a toy aisle.
