President Obama spent much of this past weekend on the campaign trail, an action that usually involves showcasing his bloated ego for all to see. This weekend was no exception, as the President resorted to mocking rich Americans for thinking that their success is a result of their intelligence.
“Look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own,” said President Obama, while laughing. “I’m always struck by people who think ‘Well, it must be because I was just so smart’.”
The Divider-in-Chief also denounced rich people for thinking that they worked harder than everyone else.
“Well, it must be because I worked harder than everyone else,” mocked President Obama. “There’s a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.”
While the president may be correct in saying that there are a significant number of hardworking Americans out there, mocking some of them for thinking that they worked harder than everyone else for their success, isn’t a politically expedient move on his part.
In a recent interview with Red Alert Politics, self-made multimillionaire Foster Friess, a growth-stock picker, said that success requires hard work and sacrifice.
“I’ve told all the people when I built my business that when you run into a wall, jump over it, and if they can’t do that run around the end of it,” said Friess. “If you can’t do that, tunnel under it, and if you can’t do that, knock it down.”
But instead, President Obama appears to think that that being a hardworking American involves mandatory dependency on other Americans… an action that is, of course, taxable.
