He must really hate himself too. I mean after spending all those millions on vacations and what not. Oh, I forgot. That wasn’t his money. It was the American people’s money.
President Obama doesn’t hate rich people. He just thinks they shouldn’t be rich.
In remarks that drew critical broadsides from conservative radio champion Mark Levin and others on the right, Obama, in addition to attacking Fox News, said rich people aren’t “evil” per se they just have too much money.
“I’m not saying this because I dislike hedge fund managers or think they are evil,” Obama said “You pretty much have more than you’ll ever use and your family will ever use.”
Showing that he doesn’t understand most rich people work hard for their money, the president compared them to gamblers hitting a jackpot.
“If we can’t ask for society’s lottery winners for that modest contribution, then really this conversation is all for show,” he told the Catholic-Evangelical Leadership Summit.
He then lamented the wave of class warfare that he himself promoted and rode into two terms in office.
“Part of what happened in our politics and part of what has shifted — elites in a very mobile globalized world are able to live together away from folks who are not as wealthy,” he said. “What used to be racial segregation mirrors itself in class segregation.”
This is from a guy who vacations on Martha’s Vineyard? What does he consider himself?
Naturally, the Twitterverse chimed in with their thoughts on the president’s latest leftist rhetoric.

Obama says "society's lottery winners" are rich. But poor people spend 9% of their household income on the lottery. http://t.co/DFsJB2xFwh

@benshapiro Just for the record, actual lottery winners give nearly 50% of their money to Uncle Sam.

@benshapiro I'm thinking most rich people did a little more work than wandering into Circle K for a scratcher.
