Gee, a politician that’s a hypocrite. What’s next, a news organization that is slanted?
Liberals are up-in-arms about former President Obama living the high life in retirement. They think he should not be taking so many millionaire and billionaire luxury retreats. Why not? The man gave up so much of his life for public service – and probably shortened it by a few years.
I may not like his policies but he served the country so he deserves time to do what he wants in retirement. Plus, it’s no one’s business how he chooses to spend his time.
A number of Liberals seem to think his globetrotting to Marlon Brando’s private island and hanging with Sir Richard Branson on Necker Island is excessive. Did they really think he cared about the commoner? Did they truly believe he meant his words regarding his fight for the middle class and the poor?
No politician believes in anything but their own ego. Most “average” Americans with integrity are too smart to enter politics. It’s a dirty business and they will not to sell their soul for votes.
Ever wonder why politics attracts the lowest common denominator when it comes to integrity, ethics, and a moral compass? In order to succeed in politics you need the ability to shut off that part of your soul that worries about such quaint aspects of life.
It amazes me how most followers, fans, groupies, – whatever you want to call them – actually believe the people they are following care for anyone but themselves.
Here’s a public service announcement: In general, the only people in the world who care about you are your parents and yourself. The rest of the population is busy caring about themselves or their children. For those of us that are religious we believe our God cares about us. That’s it.
If you think someone who has never met you and does not know your story cares about you I have a bridge in Brooklyn for sale. Cheap.
President Obama has every right to demand whatever exorbitant fees he wants to speak at the very Wall Street firms he railed against during his campaigns. If he wants to hang at the exclusive Mid Pacific Country Club in Oahu or the thirtieth century Borgo Finocchieto in Tuscany; let him.
If that shatters your image of whom you thought he was or what he stood for then I think you need to take a deep look into why you believe such things. And this does not simply go for President Obama. Every politician is the same.
Once you realize a politician is only into public service to help him or herself you will stop marching in silly protest rallies or play the pawn in someone else’s game.
