Joseph Farah, who suffers from one of the worst cases of Obama Derangement Syndrome in existence, has an absurd column complaining about President Obama’s “lifestyle.” It’s replete with falsehoods and inane arguments, all based on something Obama said on ESPN.
Two weeks ago, he was a guest on ESPN’s “The Herd.” It’s not a show I have the time to watch. In fact, there isn’t much television I have time to watch. I have businesses to run. I work 18 hours a day, six days a week because I believe in what I do and the employees who depend on me for their jobs.
What did he say on this show I’ve never seen?
“I spend most of my time watching ESPN in the morning,” said Obama. “I get so much politics; I don’t, you know, want to be inundated with a bunch of chatter about politics during the day. SportsCenter, when I work out in the morning, gives me a pretty good sense of what’s going on. I can’t sit down and watch an entire game, except maybe the Super Bowl or the NBA Finals. Or the World Series, I might be able to sit down and one day watch the whole game.”
Think about that statement.
No. 1, we already know Obama takes more vacations than any 50 families in America combined, right? And those outlandishly expensive vacations are paid for by you and me.
As for the ESPN quote, what he clearly meant was that when he does get to watch TV, it’s sports rather than political shows. OMG! Scandal!
And he also conceded that he’s not spending the rest of his day governing, which he is paid to do. Instead he is practicing politics, which we all should have known anyway.
The guy lives a charmed life.
And yet so many Americans still believe he’s sacrificing for them – he’s fighting for them. It’s hard to believe. But it’s true.
He doesn’t know anything about what it takes for ordinary Americans to make a living. How could he? He’s never had to worry about it. He’s never had to make payroll. He’s never had to live paycheck to paycheck.
As opposed to, say, the Bushes, who inherited huge amounts of money and never actually had to work a day in their lives? This is just partisan bullshit, plain and simple.
