The Private Sector is doing fine.

Well there you have it.

The President has spoken.

Quit crying, fool.

So, if you are still struggling to begin paying off the massive amount of debt you’ve acquired attempting to keep your business afloat through this recession… sorry, recovery, then you’re the exception.

Everybody else is doing fine.

If you’re still not taking a salary because you have to make payroll, then something is wrong with you.

Everybody else is doing fine.

If you are not hiring floods of new workers because you can’t afford it, then you’re evil.

Everybody else is doing fine.

If you can’t find a job, you’re all by yourself.

Everybody else is doing fine.

No… no… no…
It’s the Public Sector/Government that is in trouble.
It’s the teachers in the Government/Public schools who turn out the best and brightest at amazing rates that are in trouble.
It’s the Public Sector Unions who risk having to contribute to their pensions that are in trouble. (By the way… how does your pension look private sector worker? What? No pension?)
It’s the government employees who earn on average far more than their private sector counterparts (who are doing just fine) that are in trouble.

Anyone who says this President is out of touch must be insane. Clearly he has his finger on the pulse of America.

Meanwhile, anyone who stands in the way of such a “tuned-in” administrator spending yet more money we do not have is obstinate, obstructionist, obtuse.

This is a mindset. This is a view of the world from very high indeed. An elitist mentality does not describe this type of thinking adequately.

President Obama is an ideologue. Which is fine… so am I. We just come from mutually exclusive points of view… and I’m honest enough to admit it.

So, raise your glass to an optional reality.  We are being shown by the most powerful man in the world that as long as we say “everything is fine” then… everything is fine.
