President Obama is not the traditional Robin Hood

Posted

President Obama has put an entirely new slant on one of my favorite yarns — Robin Hood. The feel-good version I grew up with was, steal from the rich and give to the poor. How touching. How many of you, like me, fell for that one?

Now we have the Saul Alinsky-inspired Barack Obama with a more enlightened take: Steal from the rich and give to the other rich, who agree to kick the proceeds back to you and other Democrats! Hmm, Jeffrey Imelt and Solyndra come to mind.

How much are we mullet voters going to tolerate before we wake up and demand honesty and transparency from government? Where did our Tea Partiers go? We get what we vote for — or fail to vote against!
