Obama: "I'm a Chauvinist"

Whether it's trying to rake in more campaign cash for his 2012 re-election bid or shoving unwanted programs (ObamaCare) down the throats of the American people, President Obama is a chauvinist. Not my words, his.

President Obama is using a new label to describe himself in making the case for a second term:  chauvinist.

“I’m a chauvinist,” Obama told a crowd of 450 supporters who each paid $1,000 or more for a reception at a Bellevue, Wash., hotel.

“I want America to have the best stuff. I don’t want to go to China and see their airports better than ours, or go to Europe and see their railroads faster than ours,” he said.

To bankroll the “best stuff,” Obama says he will continue to ask wealthier Americans, especially millionaires and billionaires, to “pay their fair share.”

“For all of us to succeed, we have to have an investment in each other’s success,” he explained later.

The remarks came during the eighth and final fundraiser of his three-day West Coast swing that raised more than $8 million for the 2012 campaign. Obama’s fundraisers on Friday alone netted a total of more than $1.6 million.
