Useful Idiots

 

Upper East Side soiree

The worst president in U.S. history arrives in NYC today at the height of rush hour and just in time to paralyze the city during the tree lighting ceremony. The FDR will be shut down, subways jammed, streets clogged, but this sort of arrogance comes naturally to our former teaching assistant so no surprise here.

I’m not even startled to learn that he’s here to visit with the  1%, collecting tribute at $35,000 per head to fund his campaign of class warfare. Just like Willie (Sutton, not Clinton although, come to think of it …) the man’s going where the money is.

But what gives with the 1% themselves? Some of them aren’t as stupid as their children down occupying Wall Street yet they’re still willing to give the hangman his rope. Why? I assume that the world they envision is one where they, the New York liberal elite, will govern the new world and dominate the unwashed 99%. Tell that to former supporters of Stalin.

“But this time will be different” is the Upper East Side’s mantra, thus confirming that old chestnut that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result. Uh huh. There’s another old saying that these dunderheads might consider: if you’re sitting at the poker table and can’t figure out who the chump is, it’s you. Dig it absolutely.

    Upper East as stronghold of Obama supporters? Hardly!

    More like UWS, West Village, and Tribeca liberal elite. That’s where you saw (and still see) the posters and cars with Obama bumper stickers.

    Us UESiders are busy toiling away to become 1%’ers. Or these days, more like 10%’ers after taxes.

  2. Only The Donald can tell off the President. I love that man!!

    Speaking of NYC….life in CT could begin to look more favorable vs NY after the next NYC mayoral election when someone from the far left wins. In addition, Cuomo, for all the good effort he has put in will probably have to back track on income tax increases with the coming budget; leaving in place the 2pt gap between NY and CT.

    Our CT office has toyed with moving to Westchester, but that conversation has died under the threats of extended elevated income taxes accross the border.

    Sorry EOS. The unions and OWS will win the next major NY elections causing the Manhattan economic engine to sputter.

    For Chris and EOS,
    Not all 1%’s are idiots, read Leon Cooperman’s letter to Obama. :lol:

    A snippet:
    But what I can justifiably hold you accountable for is your and your minions’ role in setting the tenor of the rancorous debate now roiling us that smacks of what so many have characterized as “class warfare”. Whether this reflects your principled belief that the eternal divide between the haves and have-nots is at the root of all the evils that afflict our society or just a cynical, populist appeal to his base by a president struggling in the polls is of little importance.
