Mychal Massie writes a short opinion on Obama.

Mychal-Massie 3
“In a February 2007 appearance with her husband on ’60 Minutes,’ Mrs. Obama implied that America’s allegedly rampant white racism posed a great physical threat to her husband.” Mrs. Obama stated, “As a black man, you know, Barack can get shot going to the gas station.”  In May 2008, she said: “Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices – we are going to have to change our conversation – we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”

  Suffice it to say the only way Obama would be assaulted at a gas station is if he were at one in the ghetto of Chicago.  That said, I wasn’t aware you could fuel Air Force One at the corner gas station.  Besides, judging from how he throws a baseball, I doubt he even has a clue where the gas tank is.  But I digress.

As I noted last night, I love his idea of everyone sacrificing.  His annual salary is $550,000.  If you adjust $25,000 for inflation, his annual salary is $560,000.  His idea of sacrifice was to order his salary cut by $20,000.  Consider what it says about Obama the man for him to think we would be impressed or consider that a sacrifice.  In 2008, the Obamas’ joint tax-return revealed they earned nearly three million dollars.

If he wants to sacrifice let him do what New York City’s Mayor Bloomberg does.  He works for one dollar a year.  If the Obamas did that I wouldn’t be impressed, but it would show that at least they’re trying to pretend to not flaunt how our tax-dollars are funding their lavish lifestyle.
