I continue to think the other side of this coin is what matters to the President. His personal scolding of the successful contains the message that his cheering fans evidently received. "See, the successful have already gotten their help from all of us, so those of you who are getting help now, whether it is interminable unemployment, social security disability, medicaid, food stamps - well, you don't have to feel bad about it, it's your turn now. Don't let the hypocritical successful deny you!"
He needs them afraid. He need them envious. He needs them to vote for more help at any cost.
