Long before running for the presidency, Barack Obama has lived by the motto, ‘do as I say, not what I do.’ He is quick to tell everyone around him how they should act and conduct business, when in fact he doesn’t even follow his own advice.
In the latest rounds of Obama hypocrisy, the president says that Mitt Romney is not necessarily qualified to the think about the economy as a whole. In an interview with Charlie Rose, co-host of CBS This Morning, Obama said,
“When some people question why I would challenge his Bain record, the point I’ve made there in the past is, if you’re a head of a large private equity firm or hedge fund, your job is to make money. It’s not to create jobs. It’s not even to create a successful business – it’s to make sure that you’re maximizing returns for your investor. Now that’s appropriate. That’s part of the American way. That’s part of the system. But that doesn’t necessarily make you qualified to think about the economy as a whole, because as president, my job is to think about the workers. My job is to think about communities, where jobs have been outsourced.”
So let’s look at Obama’s experience with the economy prior to taking over the White House. Well, there was… And there was… That’s right, Obama had ZERO economic experience except spending money on the needy and that definitely doesn’t make him qualified to look at the economy as a whole. His track record as president reflects his economic inexperience and ignorance as he has amassed more deficit than any ten presidents combined. Obama’s whole philosophy is spend, spend and spend some more and it doesn’t matter if there’s money in the bank or not.
The second matter of Obama’s hypocrisy is his demanding Mitt Romney to release more than one year of tax returns and other democrats are jumping on the bandwagon. Obama has sealed his college records, his birth records and hidden many other facets about his past from the public and yet he has the nerve to criticize Romney for only releasing one year’s tax returns. This is the penultimate form of hypocrisy I’ve seen from Obama to date and boy we’ve seen a lot from him.
If I were Mitt Romney, I’d tell Obama that if he would release his college and birth records then I’d release my records, but not before. Obama needs to put up or shut up and stop being the world’s biggest hypocrite.
