President Obama is right. There is a lot of unfairness in America. And he is the source of much of it.
Last time I heard so much talk about fairness -- as in the plaintive "that's not fair" -- was when my children were toddlers. But Obama seems to think that the word will have some spellbinding effect when wielded against the wealthy Mitt Romney.
Barack Obamm has ditched the "hope and change" slogan of his 2008 campaign and is now peddling "fairness" as his mantra. He promises he will make life "fair" for Americans. He launched his strategy when he called up the spirit of Teddy Roosevelt in Kansas back in December. It is redolent, too, of the come from behind victory of Harry Truman who preached a "Fair Deal" for Americans.
No it's not fair. It's not fair that you take something from someone who's earned it and give it to someone else who hasn't.
Only those on the receiving end of this 'redistribution' fair. Or, someone looking to stay in office by buying votes.
