By: Matt Patterson Hard to believe, but President Obama — one of the most divisive and partisan chief executives in American history — once posed as a messenger of national unity. During his keynote address to the 2004 Democratic National Convention, then-Senate candidate Obama proclaimed, “… there’s not a liberal America and a conservative America; there’s the United States of America!”
Well, apparently Obama now sees a different and thoroughly bifurcated nation, a “good” America and a “rich” America. And in order to secure the votes of the former, he is disgracefully fomenting hatred toward the latter.
Take his “jobs bill.” It never had a snowball’s chance in Hades of passing, and he knew it. It was designed solely to help him gin up hatred for “the rich”, whom he would force to “pay their fair share” were it not for those dastardly, obstructionist Republicans in the House of Representatives.
The malicious intent behind such demagoguery is exceeded only by its utter disconnect from reality — the “rich” already pay the vast majority of taxes. The top 10 percent of income earners pay some 70 percent of federal income taxes, according to the National Taxpayers Union.
