In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Obama opined, “And I don’t think you or anybody who’s been watching the campaign would say that in any way we have tried to divide the country. We’ve always tried to bring the country together.” Seriously? He doesn’t think anybody would say that? Oh, what he probably meant was, “I don’t think anybody would say I’m trying to divide the country… No, no… pretty much everybody—not just anybody—has said that.” Just to clear it up for the president, since he obviously has a lot on his plate, I’ll recount a few of the very public declarations that Obama has tried, and is trying, to divide the country for political gain:
From the Wall Street Journal:
After securing victory in all five Republican presidential primary contests last night, Mitt Romney told an audience in New Hampshire that President Obama is resorting to class warfare because he can’t run on his record.
How about these words from Romney’s VP pick, Paul Ryan:
He gave us a message of hope three years ago of uniting, not dividing. And what we’re getting now is class warfare. We’re getting very polarizing rhetoric that puts class against class, pits people against one another. And I would simply say sowing social unrest and class resentment does not make America stronger, it makes America weaker.
