Our pain is his witty quip
President Obama has a penchant for laughing or making sport of others. Let us note a couple of instances. Remember his quip on the “Tonight Show,” when he said his bowling score of 129 was like “Special Olympics or something?” He recently joked about the plight of the unemployed (13.9 million with the unemployment rate at 9.1; maybe another 6-8 million who have given up on jobs and/or under-employed) at his Jobs’ Council meeting, chuckling and saying that “ShovelReady Was Not as ShovelReady as We Expected.” Following the president’s lead, his acolytes and sycophants erupted in laughter about the bad job numbers.
Mr. President, the unemployed aren’t laughing; instead they’re wincing in pain — they don’t have a job, nor any prospect for one, their homes are being foreclosed at an unprecedented level, they have exhausted their savings, etc., etc. They don’t appreciate being belittled or being made the “butt of jokes.”
Out away from the bastions of liberalism, the American people are beginning to wake up to the hurt that big and expanding government is having on them. May the joke be on the Washington regime in November 2012 as Americans save the republic as they take the country back from the socialists/Marxists. H.E. Todd Nashville, Tennessee
