Obama to Celebs: 'You're the Ultimate Arbiter of Which Direction This Country Goes'
If you thought yesterday's campaign reboot in the form of a major economic address was the worst speech President Obama gave last night, you would be mistaken. Though a major part of the President's re-election strategy is to paint his opponent, Governor Mitt Romney, as out-of-touch, this is what President Common Man told a room full of A-listers last night, including Sarah Jessica Parker, her husband Matthew Broderick, Meryl Streep, and Vogue editor/Syria propagandist Anna Wintour:
"You're the tie-breaker," he said. "You're the ultimate arbiter of which direction this country goes."
Let us all step back for a moment to remember that this is the same man who endorses Occupy Wall Street.
Obama spoke these creepy words at a $40,000-per-plate fundraiser which raked in a total of $2 million and took place in Sarah Jessica Parker's home. Obama spoke these creepy words to the most out-of-touch crowd in the history of out-of-touch crowds. I know people who are out-of-touch who would look at this crowd and say, "Boy, are these people out-of-touch."
What planet does Obama live on that he would believe the very tippy-top of the 1% would or should be the ULTIMATE arbiters of the direction of our country?
And even if Obama believes this (and I'm going to take him at his word), how out-of-touch is he to speak such a thing out loud?
Oh, and get this: you and I are paying part of the bill for the President of the United States to run around Manhattan and tell the bubble-wrapped elite that they are the ULTIMATE arbiters of our future.
The only good news for the President here is that he didn’t say this while staring in awe at a grocery store scanner.
