Liv­ing like a king while the na­tion tight­ens belts

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Isn’t Pres­i­dent Obama telling the Amer­i­can peo­ple to “eat cake” as he ad­mon­ishes us to sac­ri­fice while si­mul­ta­ne­ously liv­ing like a monarch? The pres­i­dent’s three-day cam­paign tour in mid-Au­gust of Min­nesota, Illi­nois, and Iowa was a lav­ish one in two $1.1 mil­lion buses pur­chased in Canada that were flown in on the tax­payer dime.

Fol­low­ing that cam­paign tour, which was dubbed a “lis­ten­ing bus tour for jobs”,he was off to a lav­ish 10-day va­ca­tion at Martha’s Vine­yard to golf and wine and dine with the wealthy whom he con­tin­ues to vil­ify (although not his rich cronies) for not pay­ing their fair share of taxes.

There you have it folks, the man on the pedestal (throne) can’t be both­ered by “the lit­tle peo­ple” who are the un­em­ployed/job­less, the home­less or by the econ­omy ei­ther. All his rhetoric on these sub­jects is sim­ply po­lit­i­cal pos­tur­ing and hype in his 24/7 cam­paign mode. H.E. Todd Nashville, Ten­nessee
