IS THERE A VEILED THREAT HERE?
THERE IS A TON A CHOICE MATERIAL IN THIS ARTICLE OF OBAMA’S BADGERING AND DISINGENUOUS RHETORIC, BUT THIS NEXT QUOTE TAKES THE CAKE.
Obama said Thursday that he believes in the power of a free market, but that in a 21st century economy there no longer is a dividing line between Main Street and Wall Street. That means decisions made in corporate boardrooms can have lasting effects on decisions made around kitchen tables, he said.
FOR STARTERS, A FREE MARKET ISN’T FREE IF HE HAS CONTROL OVER EVERY ASPECT OF IT. SO, HE IS AT THE LEAST EQUIVOCATING.
SECOND, I LOVE THIS LINE, “That means decisions made in corporate boardrooms can have lasting effects on decisions made around kitchen tables…” HE CAN SAY THIS WITH A STRAIGHT FACE WHILE IGNORING THE FACT THAT DECISIONS MADE IN WASHINGTON CAN AND DO HAVE LASTING EFFECTS ON DECISIONS MADE AROUND KITCHEN TABLES. OUR LIVES ARE RADICALLY CHANGED WHEN HE AND HIS GROUP OF CONTROL FREAK FRIENDS START CRAFTING LEGISLATION AND MAKING LEGAL JUDGEMENTS. PLEASE.
