Our phony baloney smiley-face president tried to outshine Honest Abe Lincoln on his last run for president. Having run through the JFK Camelot persona, tarnished the LBJ civil rights halo, verging on the Jimmy Carter crater, our President Barack Obama adopts the Teddy Bear "fair shake" in Osawatomie, Kansas.
Really? So it was a fair shake that animated his relationship with Bill Ayers. That's why he put politics above real learning for kids. It was a fair shake that motivated his home ownership with a big assist from the felonious pay to play Tony Rezko. It was a fair shake that prompted ObamaCare.
It was a fair shake to give auto unions a sweetheart deal and deprive retired Indiana schoolteachers of their investment income. It was a fair shake to use taxpayer dollars to reward big campaign contributors and plow billions into failed green schemes.
It was a fair shake that pushed our President Barack Obama to bow to unelected dictators overseas, over and over again, even as he refers to Americans as soft and lazy.
Oh yeah, in the interests of fairness this president is departing on a 17 day vacation to Hawaii, with a campaign stop along the way, even as millions of Americans have dropped out of the workforce, discouraged.
Teddy had the bully pulpit, but this president is just a bully. From a failed state.
P.S. The difference is that in 1910 government spending amounted to about 8 percent percent of GDP. A century later it comes to around 40 percent. The country today has too much state, not too little.
