President Barack Obama and his supporters continue to slash at Gov. Mitt Romney for keeping some of his private-sector wealth overseas, even though the president’s Illinois pension is also invested in Chinese companies and a fund in the Cayman Islands.
“When he talks about getting tough on China, keep in mind that Gov. Romney invested in companies that were pioneers of outsourcing to China, and is currently investing in countries — in companies that are building surveillance equipment for China to spy on its own folks,” Obama insisted during the Oct. 16 presidential debate at Hofstra University.
The president’s overseas wealth is part of the pension he earned from his six years in Democratic-run Illinois legislature. The pension, which is worth between $50,000 and $100,000, is managed by the Illinois State Board of Investment. http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/20/obamas-pension-includes-chinese-and-cayman-investments/
Ya gotta love Democrats (if you don’t, who will??). They exemplify unrestrained, unrelenting hypocrisy.
Obama and his drone ‘obamabotes’, as well as most of the elected Congressional Democrats, rave and rail against the “wealthy”. Those ubber rich, successful Americans we’re some how supposed to hate, as if they were the real enemy of America.
The Democrats all continue to bemoan and groan about Gov. Romney’s well earned wealth, while they quietly ignore their own equally, filty rich — Democrats, like Nancy Pelosi, who is one of the wealthiest in Washington. How about all those ubber rich Kennedy people which have never been attacked for their wealth. And then there’s Barack who has quickly accumulated immerse wealth while in the Chicago Senate and now as President. It’s no wonder politicians stomp all over one another in the race to see who will gain the most money. Sadly for Americans, it’s usually OUR money, taxpayer money, which these people put in their own pockets.
But back to the hypocrites. Obama bashes Gov. Romney as if he were doing something illegal, when he’s not. Romney has taken advantages of the same ‘avenues of success’ and investment strategies as has Obama. . . . but somehow, we’re to believe that’s OK when a Demcorat does it — but not when done by a Republican.
Conservatives and most Republicans, don’t flap their mouths against people who’ve made money. Honestly, isn’t that what we all strive for? Most of us do so honestly. But when wealth finds it’s way to the door of a Conservative or Republican, we’re to believe it instantly becomes “greed”, gained illegally from the “evil rich”, out to do everyone of us in.
It’s ridiculous and tiring . . . . and to be expected from Democrats. Especially the Democrat who ‘claimed’ he didn’t view America as: “not red America or blue America, but one America!”.
Alas, I knew little Barry- Barack didn’t mean that when he said it — and another reason I didn’t, and wouldn’t, vote for him.
