HYPOCRITE: Obama Slams Big Bank 'Fat Cats' — Then Collects $1.2 Million From Wall Street Speeches
"Do as we say, not as we do." If ever there was a phrase that summarizes the leftist demands of the world, that would be it.
The phrase "hypocritical leftist" seems almost redundant at this point.
In 2009, then-President Barack Obama famously blasted bankers on Wall Street in an interview for '60 Minutes.' In his words:
Flash forward eight years later and the former president now has no problem making the same kind of money he once derided Wall Street for.
Ever loyal (so long as he can get paid for it), Wolf faithfully defends Obama as the former president cashes in. Just one problem:
If calling bankers 'fat cats' isn't stereotyping, then what is?
For some reason, moral and intellectual consistencies are completely malleable concepts to the left. If you're in office, all profiteering is bad — but setting yourself up to profit handsomely after you leave isn't.
If earning "$10 million, $20 million bonuses" in the private banking sector is the reason for Americans' struggling, we shudder to think what Obama's $65 million book deal is doing to the country.
What if someone were willing to pay bankers millions to do their jobs? Would Vice Chairman Nides hold the same attitude then? Would it still be 'God bless America' all around? No. Of course not. Until you become useful to the left, you are the enemy. There is no exception to this rule.
As Barack Obama laughs all the way to the bank, Americans will continue to be crushed under the $6.5 trillion he added to the national debt during his time in office.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
