President Obama is driving Sen. Jon Kyl spitting mad; he's had it, I tell you, Kyl, I mean, he's just about had it with this "president who talks incessantly about class, particularly the middle class."
Kyl isn't "into" class, which is to say, Kyl is classless, and rarely has a United States senator been driven to such public despair:
In the president’s narrative, someone who makes $199,000 a year is a member of one class and someone who makes $200,000 belongs to another class. Does that make sense?
Of course not. And I'm hip to you, Senator. The next thing we know this weirdly foreign president will be quoting Scripture about the so-called "poor"--a vague, offensive, class-laden term intended by ancient radicals only to rouse the rabble and divide otherwise blissfully contented Roman subjects.
Indeed, each day the president’s out on the campaign trail ... pitting these Americans against their fellow citizens by arguing that the wealthiest class is victimizing them through the tax code.
Well said, Senator Kylius. You have exposed the imbecility of President Obama's central argument on the campaign trial: that those making $200,000 a year should fork over to Caesar more than those making $199,000 a year.
Thank you, Senator. Thank you for saying what others haven't the courage or keen insight to say. Thank you.
