Obama’s presidency wasn’t filled with the championing of Americans’ success.

He was more of a “You didn’t build that” kinda guy.

Here’s another quote, and fairly in context:

“Now, what we’re doing, I want to be clear, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point, you’ve made enough money.”

And:

“It’s not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they’ve got a chance at success, too. My attitude is that if the economy’s good for folks from the bottom up, it’s going be good for everybody. … [I] think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”

It should be noted that “spreading the wealth around” is done by taking wealth from the wealthy and giving it others.

Has Barack personally spread it around enough? He’s reportedly worth $70 million; how ’bout you?

The Obamas are buying a 6,900 square-foot beachfront spread on Martha’s Vineyard worth a cool $15 mil.

TMZ reports:

The former Prez and First Lady have been renting the house this summer and loved it so much, we’ve learned they made an offer. The property is listed at $14,850,000. Our sources say they’re paying less, but we don’t know how much.

Maybe they’re only paying $199,200 — that’s the median price of a home in the U.S.

But if they’re paying a whole lot more, people on the web have some things to say.

From Babylon Bee founder Adam Ford:

And Inez Stepman, of the Federalist:

On we go:

The Red-Headed Libertarian made an excellent point:

Others noticed, too:

Right. That house’ll be under water within 12 years. On the upside, though, all of life on earth will have been exterminated. Because of your excesses. So it won’t really matter.

To be clear, if someone has millions of dollars, I think they should enjoy it. Buy a big house — one built for a king. Even though you didn’t build that.
