How many times during the last presidential campaign did we hear BHO'B referred to as the the Great Unifier? Let's elect a guy with no qualifications other than a silver tongue and some color in the skin and we will all live happily ever after as one. Don't ya love political correctness?
His first many months in office were dedicated to health care reform. He gave countless speeches throughout the land praising the wonders of government controlled health care. How? By constantly portraying the insurance companies as the greedy, evil enemy. Never mind that the insurance companies enjoy a mere 3% profit margin on their product. He always failed to mention that annoying little fact.
Then, he made it clear that anyone who may express a dissenting opinion regarding his socialist agenda is somehow un-educated, simple, and un-enlightened. You just didn't get it. He actually went as far as telling us not to watch a certain cable news network because some info delivered there wasn't real. And of course, if you did not agree with the big government, big spending policies, you are most certainly racist. Now Obama himself never actually made that charge, but his minions did, over and over and over again. And not a word of objection from the Great Unifier himself.
Then came the budget battle. Why do we have record deficits? It's the evil rich people. They just don't pay their fair share in taxes. Even though if the top 5% of earners were taxed at a rate of 100%, it would barely scratch the surface of the current deficit, well, another little annoying fact he fails to mention.(Anyone else tired of this worn out class warfare nonsense we always seem to get from a certain political party?)
Now this week, it's gas prices. As he joked about not having to pay for gas himself, he boldly announced that the DOJ will launch an investigation into the greedy speculators who trade oil on the open world market. Brave move, indeed. Never mind that that is what the Federal Trade Commission does for a living, nope, he's gonna get to the bottom this. Surely, it's these shady capitalists causing your pain at the pump. Also never mind, that since his administration has monetized the national debt(thus printing money at a record pace), that prices of everything are rising, combined with an unsettling middle east situation is what really is causing the $5 per gallon gas.
So back to the original point. The Great Unifier is obviously using the time tested strategy of divide and conquer. Create an enemy for every issue, exaggerate a crisis, and imply that should you not agree with his brilliance, you are the enemy. He has become the most divisive, polarizing president ever.
How's that kool-aid tasting now, America?
