It was announced on Sunday that the Obamas have purchased a $14.85 million Martha’s Vineyard estate. This lavish purchase comes a day before we celebrate the labor movement in the United States. A rags to riches tail some might say.
The irony of this tale is that Barack Obama has long despised those with mass amounts of personal wealth. The “you didn’t build that” mantra he used when referring to successful business owners still rings clear. But I guess that sentiment only applies to those who actually spent their careers assuming risk to build something and create countless jobs.
You see, his mantra does not apply to him. He has never created a single job, nor has he built anything in the private sector. Unless you count his trillion-dollar stimulus package where he awarded contracts to his cronies or the monumental growth of government bureaucracy under his administration.
I guess the moral of the story is that in liberal America, it is okay to be rich as long as you are a part of the Washington, D.C., nobility. A town that produces nothing but more regulations and higher taxes is also home to this class of hypocritical liberal elite.
