“It’s not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they’ve got a chance for success too. My attitude is that if the economy’s good for folks from the bottom up, it’s gonna be good for everybody … I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” – Barack Obama
bama made this comment when answering some tough questions from an Ohio plumber who fears that Obama will penalize his successful business with high taxes. Someone please explain to me how “spreading the wealth around” to people who haven’t earned the wealth is not penalizing the success of the wealthy … and is not socialism.
The exchange was caught on tape – which I hope means we’ll be seeing an ad based on it soon.
Until then, let’s close a little art in the Obama style, shall we?
