Again, I must remind you, this is pure politics. Politicians say what needs to be said to gain advantages in the short term, but they use power for the long term once in office. Is this so complicated? We know that Obama needs to say some things at one time and do other things when the time is right - for him. What Obama is consistently doing is creating a fair country by using his government to punish the rich (except a few who supported him with their wealth) in order to create a level playing field for the poor.
