Obama is not for anyone but himself
By J.J. Jackson
There are a lot of fools out there. How do you spot these fools? Just ask them whether or not they think President Obama is "looking out for them" or not. If they answer yes and then proceed to tell you how they can't wait to vote for him in November, you have found yourself a fool.
See, President Obama is not "for" anyone except himself. He is not "for" the poor. He is not "for" the middle class. He is not even "for" the rich. Well, he's not "for" any of these groups unless they can be bought off to vote for him that is.
Fools, however, can be led to believe that he is actually "for" them. I hear people crow about how Obama is "for" them because he brought them Obamacare to cover their medical bills. I hear others proclaim how Obama is "for" them because he is out to tear down evil corporations that don't pay them what they feel they are worth but actually are not worth. I hear people in certain sectors of the economy, like the Natural Gas industry, glow about how Obama is "for" them because he is against their competitors (ie. coal and oil). Most often, I hear about how Obama is "for" the little guy because he is out to sock it to the vile rich.
Yet, when you actually look at what Obama does, you see that he is not really "for" anyone of these people. As I said, he is just out "for" himself. And I can prove it. Especially when it comes to the last claim.
Ever hear of the Pritzkers? Well, the Pritzkers are billionaires. They are loaded. And not just loaded loaded either. They are filthy, stinking, lifestyles of the uber rich and famous loaded. They don't want for anything. They are also huge liberals who donate and bundle money on behalf of President Obama. The Pritzkers were part of a Superior Bank, a Chicago bank that failed. In 2001, note that date because it was under the administration of the often reviled President Bush, the Pritzkers agreed to pay $460 million as their obligation to make investors whole. For years they paid up, although slowly, despite raking in billions and billions of more dollars from their little empire.
Then along comes President Obama. You know, the man that is supposed to be for the "little guy" right?. With The One struggling to raise money for his reelection bid, all of a sudden, POOF! After paying $316 million, only about two thirds of their obligation, the President's Administration tells the Pritzkers that there is no need to repay the rest of the money.
And who gets hung out to dry? 67-year old Vietnam Veterans like John Courtney, that's who. He is still owed $50,000. Then there is also Fran Sweet, also 67, who is out $70,000. And there are many, many other "little guys" hung out to dry on this case of political payback. And it is political payback, make no mistake about it. The Pritzkers have money to burn and donate to Obama but not to pay back people like Mr. Courtney and Ms. Sweet?
And you think Obama is for justice? You think Obama is "for the little guy"? How deluded are you?
Make no mistake, Obama would not have helped the Pritzkers if he didn't think they were valuable allies in his battle to win reelection. And the President will cast off all the "little guys" in the world to buy favors if he must.
You want preferential treatment too? Easy, just figure out how to compete with billions of liberal dollars. That's all. Then Obama will be for you in a heartbeat.
