A New Battle In Obama’s Class War, Today’s Press ConferencePosted: June 29, 2011
Today the heat in the ongoing class warfare has gotten turned up a bit during the late morning press conference of President Barack Obama.
From start to finish of the press conference, President Obama goes full blast into pitting one group against another, rich versus poor, those who support both those who are on social security versus successful businesses, and us versus them. Since President Obama cannot seek a second Presidential term based on his first term’s record, he does the next best thing, play up one group against another. In other words, President Obama is painting a picture of Republicans as for the rich and the powerful while making Democrats to be for the children and the poor.
Also to jab at the Republicans, President Obama also brings up both the war in Afghanistan, the taking down of Osama Bin Laden, and the crisis in Greece by adding this:”I’ve been doing Afghanistan, bin Laden and the Greek crisis,” Obama said, jabbing Congress for being out of session so much. “You stay here. Let’s get it done.”
IMHO, today’s presser by President Obama serves as a very clear reminder that when all else fails in regards to your Presidential record, play the “class warfare card” to score brownie points to get the Republicans to cave-in under the pressure so as not to have the needed cuts made as well as to raise the debt ceiling.
Also just listening to the presser, President Obama seems to make as a whipping post those persons and companies who own corporate jets:”If we do not have revenues, that means there are a bunch of kids out there who do not have college scholarships,” Obama said. “[It] might compromise the National Weather Services. It means we might not be funding critical medical research. It means food inspection might be compromised. I’ve said to Republican leaders, ‘You go talk to your constituents and ask them, “Are you willing to compromise your kids’ safety so some corporate-jet owner can get a tax break?”
Once again, when all else, including the failures of his own Presidential record, go after those who produce not only wealth but also jobs in the private sector.
Right now, the USA going into another July 4th holiday weekend is dealing with a very sluggish economy and very big concerns about its future. A Presidential press conference which plays on class warfare in the end helps no one or resolves the struggling economy.
