Since President Barack Obama loves to badmouth the wealthy, we thought we’d take a moment to defend them. Well, one of them, anyway. Bill Gates, of Microsoft fame (Yes, he built that!). As you may have heard, through the work of The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, he has helped to eradicate polio in India. Now, we know Obama won’t brag about this, but we will. Eradicated polio in India! Just to be clear, Obama is now increasing the taxes on people like Gates, thinking it is more important to send yet more money to Washington. Oh, sure, that money will be much better spent in D.C. But, we should be fair: Obama did eradicate any semblance of a viable healthcare Website, didn’t he?

Now that our Liar in Chief is backpedaling on his “If you like your (health-insurance) plan, you can keep it” promise, we continue to see more of Obama’s true character (or lack of it). We believe this all amounts to nothing more than a bait-and-switch tactic, which, in the private sector, is illegal. We also find it amusing listening to Obama refer to these soon-to-be-cancelled policies as sub-par. Well, shouldn’t it be our choice whether we want to keep a sub-par product? After all, if it weren’t for America’s love of all things sub-par, you wouldn’t be in office, Mr. President, would you?

Hey, just asking: Where did the Libertarian Party go? Isn’t now the time to seize the middle and work toward 2016?
