In a town hall meeting a short time ago, President Obama was sarcastic about the wealthiest Americans and raising their taxes. He said sarcastically, something like, “what are we going to tell the rich? that you don’t have to do a thing?”
Sarcasm only fuels class warfare. Of course the rich are paying – and maybe they will be asked to pay more – but why does he have to be insulting and sarcastic? Is that his solution? Be rude? It is not leadership to create class warfare. It is petty and political. It is a vote getter, it is not leadership.
Perhaps the economic crisis in our country is not so much the rich, but rather his (and other politicians’) stewardship of the economy? President Obama has been in charge for more than 2 years and before that he was in the US Senate. I am not saying it is an easy problem but flinging insults has never solved any problem.
Instead of insulting, President Obama might want to ask himself if his stimulus bill has delivered — whether it is rev’ing up the economy so that people have jobs and are paying taxes to our Treasury? If you read GretaWire, and if you look at the continued foreclosures and unemployment rate in this country, you will see grave disappointment in his stimulus bill. It cost alot — but did it deliver? He might find it more fruitful to study the economy, look at what is and is not working, instead of insulting and blaming.
Let me repeat, I am not saying that any of these problems are easy — but creating class warfare by being sarcastic towards the rich is not leadership and not what a President should do. He should be strong and civil – not petty and divisive.
Am I wrong?
