Obama Blackmails the Middle Class

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of

Obama recently gave yet another televised pep rally, complete with a laughing, cheering progressive audience. The purpose this time was all about taxing his most hated class o' people, the Evil Rich (of which he finally admitted he is a part of).

He used words like "holding hostage" and offered veiled threats to the middle to lower-classed, warning us that if his offer of taxing the rich doesn't happen, the middle class (cue threatening music) WILL PAY.

As one of those middle to lower-classed people, I am personally insulted and more than a little angry.

Apparently Barack thinks we are all brain-dead like the rest of his followers and that we don't remember a few very important things.

For one, he thinks we don't remember that the first two years of his presidency he OWNED Washington!  From 2008 to 2010 he held the majority in both the Congress and Senate and he could have taxed those Evil Rich people to hell and back by now--and yet, he chose not to.  (Why, I wonder?  Hmmm...)

Another thing Barack seems to think we didn't notice is that the two things he mentioned as "good" were the Republican Bush tax cuts and the Republican-led Clinton-era economy.

But seriously, folks--does Obama really think this baby-tiny ONE YEAR ONLY tax break is a good thing for all us non-rich people?  How in the world does he expect us to get back on our feet via this "gift" of not taxing us to death for only one short year?  What happens after that, Obama?

And speaking of "gifts", we already have these tax breaks (again established by Republican President Bush) yet this Naked Emperor talks as if he established said tax breaks all by his lonesome.  It's sort of like he's re-wrapping a gift our grandmother has already given us and now we're all supposed to say, "Oh thank you so much, Obama, I didn't have one of these!"

But I digress...

Another disturbing aspect of Obama's speech was when he talked about how America needs to start operating from the top down, bottom up.  Again, does he think we've forgotten that these are almost exactly what his scary Communist "Green Czar" friend Van Jones used to preach?  Glenn Beck has done entire episodes about Jones' "top down, bottom up" theory; it was scary then, and even scarier now coming straight out of the president's mouth. 

Sorry Obama and all your Marxist friends, but I'm not buying the idea that only the poorest of us can elevate the rest of the country.  I've been extremely poor and I know for a fact that when you have no money, you are focused on one thing and one thing only:  NOT BEING POOR ANYMORE.  Yet Obama and his progressive buddies are seriously trying to convince us that the best way to get our economy booming again is not by President Reagan's proven-to-work "trickle down" economy but rather from the bottom up.

Blackmailing, threatening and full-on lying to all of us not only doesn't work, it makes people (like me) very, very angry--but there is a solution.

Instead of denigrating the healthiest and wealthiest in America, let's give them incentive to keep their businesses here in this country.  Let's encourage and congratulate them for helping keep America on top for approximately 235 years.  While we're at it, let's stop sending multi-billions of our hard-earned dollars to other countries whose leaders despise us (and who are probably using that money for nefarious reasons) and instead invest in drilling, industry, techonology and entrepreneurship in our own country.  These things will create job growth, along with offering REAL hope and change.

(But you already know this, don't you, Obama?)

As for the people who were cheering Obama during his threatening speech, I can only assume that these poor folks are victims of some horrible disease, or maybe Stockholm syndrome.  They have somehow been hypnotized, mesmerized and/or tricked into believing whatever lines of crap their president feeds them.  Or maybe they have simply chosen to ignore the facts and do not care what the truth is.  Either way, they need our immiedate prayers...

Meanwhile, polls are showing that 56% of Americans believe Obama has changed America for the worst and his backers are currently promoting the brilliantly dim campaign slogan that "Things aren't so bad."

Oh yes they are, Barack--yes, they are.
