"The folks who don’t have a right to complain are the folks at the top.”
The guy at the very top who never stops complaining thinks that people at the top, who aren't him, have no right to complain.
In a recent interview with The Economist, President Barack Obama addressed the concerns of American corporate officers and others in a compelling and comprehensive fashion when he told them, essentially, to shut up.
“If you look at what’s happened over the last four or five years, the folks who don’t have a right to complain are the folks at the top,” Obama said.
“Oftentimes, you’ll hear some hedge-fund manager say, ‘Oh, he’s just trying to stir class resentment’. No. Feel free to keep your house in the Hamptons and your corporate jet, etcetera. I’m not concerned about how you’re living,” Obama said.
“I am concerned about making sure that we have a system in which the ordinary person who is working hard and is being responsible can get ahead,” he said.
Obama will obviously keep his own lifestyle, which includes non-stop parties and vacations. And he's done plenty of favors for his big donors which make it hard for the ordinary person to get ahead.
Just ask those coal miners being arrested. Or the working class people about to lose their jobs to his illegal alien amenstiers.
He plays on class resentment, but the targets of that resentment are second-hand lefty yuppies who like his version of regulatory class warfare because it brings in the consulting gigs for them.
But in the midst of all this, Obama whines more than the whiniest hedge fund managers. His speeches consist of passive aggressive complaining. And he is at the very top of it.
I have trouble thinking of a speech in which the most powerful man in the world isn't complaining about how hard he has it.
If Obama insists on abusing power and making life hard for ordinary people for the profit of his eco-donors, he could at least stop whining.
Also if he could stop talking about the "folks" to cover up his elitism, that would be appreciated.
