President Obama has a year left in the White House. So what are his plans now to make things better? What does he plan to do now, that he didn't do before? Well we got our answer Tuesday night. He plans to divide us against each other. To pit Americans against other Americans in the hopes of generating enough votes to get re-elected.
He tells Americans worried about their jobs that the way to help them is to raise their bosses' taxes.
He tells those who are hurting that the only way they can be better off, is for others to be worse off.
He tells all of us that the only way for some of us to climb up the economic ladder is for others to be pulled down.
This divisive rhetoric, this effort to gain political support by convincing some that they will be better off if we punish others, this stuff has never worked anywhere it's been tried.
People end up fleeing countries who adopt economic policies based on these flawed principles. And more often than not, they come here.
They come here because this is not who we are.
