Obama’s rhetorical fusillade about the “rich who don’t pay their fair share” is exposed here for what it is by Peter Ferrara: deceptive, manipulative baloney that further lowers the level of political discourse in the nation.

Ferrara’s conclusion is right — it doesn’t matter to Obama and his handlers whether his statements are true or false, but only whether they will help to sucker in enough voters for him to win again.

Every day, the United States resembles Orwell’s imagined world of 1984 more and more.
