Rep. Allen Bernard West is back to putting the "Hussein" in "Barack Hussein Obama," this time in a complaint about the president's ripping on Republicans' economic stances in a speech yesterday.
Quite simply, Obama said the theory of trickle-down economics just doesn't work, and he's not down with keeping up the tax breaks for the wealthy.
Allen Bernard West, however, says he and Thomas Jefferson know how this country is supposed to operate.
"Jefferson stated in the Declaration of Independence that we have 'unalienable rights from our Creator... Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness,'" Allen Bernard West said in a Facebook rant this morning. "Obviously President Barack Hussein Obama believes in a 'guarantee of happiness' and that he, along with his liberal disciples, are the arbiters of fairness."
Obama, on the other hand, said yesterday, "We simply cannot return to this brand of 'you're on your own' economics if we're serious about rebuilding the middle class in this country."
False, says Allen Bernard West.
"America is about equal opportunity, not the liberal progressive mantra of equal achievement," Allen Bernard West says. "Nice try Mr. President but teleprompters and poll tested messages do not equal visionary leadership."
Allen Bernard West has been upping his Facebook game recently, as he's posted an entertaining rant or something similar every day since November 28.
Back on the subject of Obama, Allen Bernard West finished his note with a nonapology.
