Marco Rubio: Obama Uses the Language Of A Third-World Leader

 

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) was very disappointed in President Obama’s class-warfare press conference yesterday… describing it on the floor of the Senate as “the kind of language that you would expect from the leader of a third-world country, not the President of the United States.”

All restraint on power abandoned, defeated legislation like the DREAM Act enforced through decree, disfavored legislation like the Defense of Marriage Act ignored, government muscle used to trash targeted companies like Boeing on behalf of labor unions, leaders with fabulously opulent lifestyles threatening the livelihood of private-sector class enemies… the Third World is, increasingly, right outside your window.  Tell me where Senator Rubio is wrong.

Better yet, prove him wrong, President Obama!  Get through a month without deploying a senseless class warfare argument, declaring any new enemies in the American private sector, or castigating citizens for doing the kind of thing prominent Democrats like “Air Claire” McCaskill do on a regular basis.  She didn’t just enjoy a tax break for her private jet – she failed to pay over $280,000 in property taxes on it, and extracted funds from her Senate budget for fuel and maintenance.

Let’s hear you denounce McCaskill as vehemently as you tore into those greedy corporate jet owners, Mr. President, and then we’ll know you’re not just a wannabe Third World despot, whose every action satisfies his need for power, money, or blind ideology.  Show us that the ruling class lives by the same standards you would impose on the private sector.  That’s how we roll in the First World.
