Obamantoinette Part II

Marie Antoinette allegedly said "Let them eat brioche" when told that bakers had no flour for bread.  In fact she never said it, but one name she was given fits President Obama:  because of her extravagant spending the French called her Madame Deficit.

The incident Jen reports in her article, Obamantoinette,  is disturbing, not only because of Obama's suggestion that we buy a $40,000.00 four passenger car, but also because of his attitude toward the questioner.   When the audience member asked about high gasoline prices,  Obama  ridiculed the questioner, according to the White House transcript:

"I know some of these big guys, they're all still driving their big SUVs. You know, they got their big monster trucks and everything. You're one of them? Well, now, here's my point. If you're complaining about the price of gas and you're only getting eight miles a gallon--(laughter)--you may have a big family, but it's probably not that big. How many you have? Ten kids, you say? Ten kids? (Laughter.) Well, you definitely need a hybrid van then. (Laughter)."

Heh Heh Heh.  The plebians cling to their guns, religion and their SUV's.   Obama's unscripted moment reveals his royalist sentiments.

  1. The arrogance is astonishing. Clinging to our guns, our "big" cars and our children too. Next thing we'll all be limited to one child per two consenting adults.
