...What was most revealing about the president’s comments was his expressed desire to “change how the media reports.”
Speaking of Fox News, the poor, and the way GOP leaders think, Obama said, [W]e’re going to have to change how our body politic thinks, which means we’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues.”
After seven failed years, to watch Obama sit there and discuss the poor as though he is part of the solution and not the problem, is laughable.
As Nolte reminds us, Obama is completely unfamiliar with poverty and struggle. From prep schools to the Ivy League, his upbringing was one of exclusivity, privilege and wealth:
The closest Obama has ever come to experiencing anything close to poverty was during his time as a community organizer in Chicago. And in that dynamic, the poor were just pawns for Obama to manipulate to achieve his political ambitions.
Obama knows nothing of struggle, or what life is like for those who do. And after 7 years of his failed economic policies, we also know he doesn’t give a damn enough about the poor to change his policies in a way that might actually help them.
Obama likes poor people fine — he likes them dependent on the government.
He also likes the news media to do what it’s told.
Uhm, and Mr. President, what about the millions on welfare who are able-bodied fraudsters, illegal immigrants and other leeches who are abusing the system?
After all, your own government reports that there billions are wasted on food stamps that are used fraudulently.
Or is your own government racist?
