RightKlik Rewind: Liberal Hypocrisy

I have no doubt that there are many people who sincerely believe that "spreading the wealth around" promotes the common good and that redistribution somehow makes for a more fair, just and equitable world.  Apparently, Obama is one of these people.  He has famously stated "...I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." 

Some say that if Obama believes in redistribution, he should be helping his impoverished brother in Kenya, or his poor aunt in Boston.  Maybe.  But maybe Obama has already tried to help his family.  Maybe Obama's family is too proud and independent to accept help. You and I don't know the situation, so let's give Obama the benefit of the doubt.     

Obama wants to abandon tired, failed conservative ideas like personal responsibility.  He wants to improve the world through "redistributive change," and he plans increase taxes and fatten up the U.S. Treasury to make it happen.  Taking it a step further, Obama has also made it clear that he will do everything he can to help spread the misery: 

Part of what I'm hoping to a new ethic of responsibility where we say that if you're laying off workers, the least you can do when you're making $25 million a year is give up some of your compensation and some of your bonuses ... That kind of notion of shared benefits and burdens is something that I think has been lost for too long, and it's something that I'd like to see restored.

I never thought Americans would buy into this BS, but in November, they did. So I said, "Fine Obama, you won, you call the shots."  But then I remembered a little exchange between Obama and McCain.  McCain said, "Nobody likes taxes. Let's not raise anybody's taxes."

"Well, I don't mind paying a little more," Obama responded.

WAIT A MINUTE!  He said what?

"...I don't mind paying a little more."


Hey Obama! There's good news.  If you really want to pay more, YOU CAN DO IT RIGHT NOW.  The United States Treasury will accept your patriotic donation.  This is no joke.  If you need to know more, click here.

Obama, this is your chance to lead by example.  Make a big deal about it, have a big fancy check-signing photo-op surrounded by smiling celebrities and politicians; heck, you could even invite that Obama Girl.  You could show us how much you hate those nasty Bush tax cuts by sending an amount equal to what you saved because of those cuts.  With the millions you made from your book, I'm sure it would be a lot of money.  

But don't stop there, dear leader.  Show us this "new ethic" of shared burdens—forgo half of your salary! The median household income is $45,000, but you make $400,000 per year, not including handsome benefits. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Obama, put your money where your mouth is and make a financial donation to the U.S. Treasury today!  You do believe in the things you talk about, don't you?


Left ignores unprecedented federal power grab
It's interesting how the same folks who vehemently complained about the overbearing Bush mandates want to blindly take every red cent from the Obama administration, with strings firmly attached.

Q&A: Mitt Romney on How Obama's Doing
I believe that with all the challenges America faces, the simple solutions and the hopes that were sold by the Obama team are inadequate to the task ahead.

"Card Check" Not as Bad as Thought! It's Worse.

Obama is a tight-wad. He had plenty of opportunities to generate real generosity over the years and never took advantage of them. His tax returns are proof of that.

Taking other people's money at the point of a gun (i.e., taxes) is not charity, except in Obama's world.

Romney also said on Fox the other day that what Obama is doing is dangerous. I couldn't agree more. We are a country of emotional non-thinking Lemmings.

Great blog girlfriend.
Say it loud and often

Franklin's Locke said...

Great point! But...we know it is all about him and nobody else. He does not worry about what he is doing and how it is affecting others. So, he won't making a personal donation to anyone anytime soon, not even a fellow Democrat.

they want to kill prosperity

Jane said...

YES! That drives me nuts! People who say they 'want to' or 'would be willing to' pay more taxes are idiots. Wanna pay more? THEN PAY IT! What they really mean is they want to spend OTHER PEOPLE's money. grrrrrr......

RightKlik said...

4s: What else would you expect from the world's biggest narcissist?

DaBlade: Americans are swept up in the emotions in much the same way that Germans were during the 1930s.

AR: Thanks for visiting RightKlik

FL: Democrats don't understand the concepts of individual initiative or personal responsibility. There are certain ideas that are really beyond their grasp:

RV: Yes, they do, and they will replace prosperity with government dependence.

Jane: They'd have a hard time advancing their agenda if they were more honest about it, wouldn't they?

So what else is new?

RightKlik said...

Bob: I think their taking their hypocrisy to new lows.

You know I am trying to come to grips with how absolutely fast that this is all taking place.

I believe we will begin to see an era of making less, cause why would we wish to pay for someone else's home, car, insurance, food, medical, abortion, contraceptives, science that global warming IS REAL because they say so....oh and you know what? I have no desire to support girl scouts or any fundraisers that show up.

My family and I have always been very charitable, but I find my effort being sabotaged and usurped to the point of WHY?

HW: The power-greedy democrats don't want Americans to take care of themselves and each other. They want control over everything.
