Kids versus corporate jets. If President Obama's news conference accomplished anything on Wednesday afternoon, it underscored, in striking tones, his strategy for winning the debt ceiling fight with Republicans: Make it a clash of classes.
Rich versus Poor. Us versus Them.
Those who support children, food safety, medical research and, presumably, puppies and apple pie versus the rich fat cats who don't. In Obama's world, Democrats are for kids and Republicans are for corporate jets. That is a sharp distinction that could help put the GOP on defensive, but it may not be enough to persuade Republicans to change their posture on the debt-ceiling talks. http://teaparty.org/article.php?id=966
Joela Said: O.k. gang, Mr. Obama is showing America one more time that he is a moron. He is comparing Kids and Corporate Jets, that's like comparing apples and elephants, duh!! Without corporate jets our nation will come to a screeching halt! We can't expect the top CEOs to travel on commercial airlines! They need body guards and their complete team able to talk and plan WHILE they fly. Not only that but they need to entertain clients and close those billion dollar deals so they can keep the wheels of commerce turning! Once again, everyone say: DUH!!!!
Mr. Obama has NEVER held a job or been responsible for the paychecks of any business!
