Barack Obama made a candid, honest, and truthful financial speech recently. Of course, it wasn't the lying, partisan crap which he vomited out on national television last week. Rather, as is the case with all of the alleged president's really interesting speeches, it was made behind closed doors to a friendly group of enthusiastic campaign donors.
In a previous circumstance, Mr. Obama used such an occasion to sneeringly say of people in the Midwest that "they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them." He said this for three reasons - the first being that he believes it, the second being that the uber-liberal San Francisco crowd he was addressing ate it up, and third (and most important) he didn't know he was being recorded.
And so it is that when talking to campaign donors several days ago, Mr. Obama admitted that not all money spent on government employees is a good investment. Specifically because some government workers "are slugs, and not trying to do their job." He did not single out Janet Napolitano, Joe Biden, Eric Holder, Harry Reid, or Barney Frank by name...but it is widely known that the Secret Service will not let anyone approach those people until they've been thoroughly searched for salt shakers.
Interestingly, CBS has the original full-length audio tapes of the alleged president saying additional ugly things which are, for a change, how he really feels about the American people...but CBS is refusing to release those tapes because their tax-exempt status might be changed if they're found to be a news operation instead of a non-profit organization.
But at least Obama has cleared up that whole "slugs" question regarding government workers. And to think, until now Hope n' Change thought all of those slime trails in Washington DC belonged only to the politicians...
