What a waste

Written by Rosa Colucci on .

Welcome to the "do as I say, not as I do" administration. Barack "it's good to spread the wealth" Obama, and his sycophant sidekick, Joe "time to be patriotic and pay more taxes" Biden, had no problem throwing themselves a party of perverse proportions during what they have both termed as the "worst economic time since the Great Depression."

These two hypocrites have shown absolutely no remorse about spending an estimated $170 million, according to ABC News, to celebrate the coronation of the savior. The fact that a large portion of the money was donated or was for security has no relevance. Wouldn't it have been great to see the new president take $150 million of that money and "spread it around" to the Salvation Army or juvenile cancer research or to the less fortunate people he referenced so often during his campaign? I'm referring to the same people he has no problem raising our taxes to support.

If Mr. Obama were truly a man of the people, an extravaganza of such proportions would have appalled him. But he is what those of us who chose not to vote for him knew he was all along -- an arrogant, empty suit with no qualifications to be leader of the free world. God save the republic.
