Obama Says Some Americans More Equal than Others Like 'Animal Farm'

George Orwell’s 1945 novel Animal Farm had the ruling class, the pigs, revise the law that “All Animals Are Equal” to read “Some Animals Are More Equal than others.” President Obama lives by this creed.

We have all had the impending pain of sequestration incessantly drummed into us. The president is going to make certain that “everyone” feels the pain. We’ve been promised reductions in rank-and-file government staff, the military and phantom layoffs of teachers, firefighters and emergency responders. There will be increasing, overall jobless numbers. No more White House tours (there were seven staff members in the tours department), no plowing of National Parks (which doesn’t take place until April of every year and never exceeds more than 15 miles of trails).

Fire, brimstone, and plague . . . Oh, my.

After all, we must all share in the sacrifices, don’t we? Well, not really. The President and his entourage aren’t feeling the slightest pinch to his Imperial toes inside of his Cole Haan’s. Miraculously, whatever he considered to be “necessary” remains untouched.

Last week John Kerry surreptitiously forked over $265 million to Egypt. Monday, it was reiterated that the U.S. Treasury finances college football stadiums to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks. Yes, those would-be stadiums indulging in that ghastly sport the president would have second thoughts about allowing any son of his to play.

It was also pointed out that, thus far, White House staffers, making six-figure salaries, have not been touched. These aren’t just any White House jobs. We are talking about such crucial positions as energy and climate change “advisers.” Three of them. The salaries totaled over $370,000 in 2012. In 2012, FOX news identified 139 White House staffers, each making over $100,000 a year. Three calligraphers are still on the payroll. The lowest White House calligrapher’s salary is $86,000. The highest paid calligrapher makes $96,725. Total White House staff salaries alone ran an annual tab of $37.8 million in 2012.

Then, of course, there is the personal, presidential belt-tightening we can expect because of the Sequester. Not quite. There isn’t any presidential belt tightening. While Rome burns, Nero is cheerfully fiddling away. Twenty car motorcades to meet Senators McCain and Graham for dinner. Multi-million dollar vacations to Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard, all planned and set to proceed in the near future.

No one seems to recall that, whatever one might think of George W. Bush, he gave up golf for the duration of his presidency because he didn’t feel it was decent to indulge in a game while Americans were dying on the battlefield. He took sporadic vacations on his Texas ranch or at Camp David. Yet he was still lambasted regularly by Hollywood and the mainstream media and, to this day, by Obama.

Let’s compare and contrast; our Dear Leader takes million-dollar golf trips with Tiger Woods. His vacations, some separate from his mate, and play dates remain uninterrupted. It costs America more than twice as much to support him and his family than it costs England to support the entire royal family . . . $1.4 billion dollars per year. There are only four presidential family members. Five, if one counts the dog. Complaints? Anyone? No?

Some animals are more equal than others, and we’re not just talking about the dog.

    Which of the animals is Obama? in George Orwell’s book the swine is the head pig…

  • Jonathon von Tischner

    I liked that book.

  • NVRAT

    Good quote Obumster but,we know where the Animal farm is at…1600 Pennsylvania avenue and related buildings.

  • joepotato

    It would be really great if there was some way the states could de-fund the DC Cesspool.

    Starve Fedzilla! A week long general strike would get their attention, but they’d probably declare martial law and start filling up the FEMA camps.

  • KABAR2

    Some animals are more equal than others……. we have seen the truth in that….. The rats abandoned the White House early in his first term and on televison no less…..

  • Ron G

    The administration should be the very first to feel the pain of their poor decisions. We need a President that leads by example, not one feels that everyone else must suffer and they live high on the hog!

    “It costs America more than twice as much to support him and his family than it costs England to support the entire royal family . . . $1.4 billion dollars per year. ”

    Good place to start slashing the budget. Look how many Medicare recipients that would help!

    Hello Marilyn Just trying to stir up anger and hatred toward Obama aren’t you? I am sure Congressional members are not wasting any money. Their multi-million dollar office budgets are bigger than most small businesses. Did Fox check on how much Congressional Staff members make? Congressional Chief of Staff? I disagree with the expense of the dinners and transportation. Both sides need to work together and do their jobs without those expenses. There are conference rooms at the White House and Capitol Buildings.

      Hi, Go4man,
      Thanks for the comments.
      Since you mention Congress: As a matter of fact, not only FOX but other news agencies, such as Reuters, looked up how much “Congress” makes. Did you know the wealthiest members of the House and Senate (true millionaires now, some of whom didn’t have a pot to urinate in before they got to Congress)are Democrats, by a vast majority? Don’t take my word for it. It’s a matter of public record. Did you know that many Dems can’t explain how they come by millions from a Congressman’s or Senator’s salary and no one in the media holds them to accounnt for it? Diane Feinstein sits on the Armament committee , screaming her fool head off about “automatic weapons” yet forced no-bid contract after no-bid contract for munitions to her husband and no one raises a peep about it? Did you? No, sir, I am not trying to “stir up anger and hatred” toward the charlatan in the White House. He is managing that, quite nicely, all by himself. And destroying the fabric of the nation while he’s about it.
      I truly wish people like you would stop the Chicken Little act, declaring hatred mongering, when anyyone has the nerve to disagree with all of the rubbish that’s being perpetrated. Trying to rewrite the narrative doesn’t work. If he wants to waste your money and you are satisfied with that, fine. Just stop pretending that your useless rabble rousing, when others don’t want their pockets picked, is correct. You are entitled to your own opinion. But you aren’t entitled to mine and you certainly aren’t entitled to your own “facts”.

      • Go4man

        Marilyn, I sure that the Republicans are pure Christian people that do not waste our money. I will make a deal with you. You can earmark your money to pay for the needless illegal wars with no bid contracts for friends of Bush and Chaney. I will be glad to earmark my money to pay for social programs to help the less fortunate that are part of my Christian faith! Unfortunately, we are not able to earmark our money.

        Believe me, It all about hatred! I see it every day!

    Isn’t Moochelle’s mommy still living in the White House?

    • Ole SC

      I think she lives on the Moochelle’s Airplane with her traveling around the world on our money!!

  • Brabado

    I have the feeling President Obama was making reference to the Hood, in South Chicago… Don’t you?

    It never affects those making the decisions. Let’s not forget MO is forcing kids to be vegetarians in our public schools while they eat the fat of the land just like Animal Farm.

    Given the FACT that Obama and the Entire Domocratic Party think they are better than everyone else what can one expect? Obama thinks he is even better than GOD and he hates America and Americans.He is doing everything he cn to Destroy America and anyone who is succesful as fast as he can.he wants America to be a tenth world Nation and his actions are all aimed at getting that task done.This is why we need an Amendment to the Constitution that makes Congress answerable to the American people and the same holds true for those in the White House as well.No program of Government should grow faster than the rate of Inflation and We the People should be the ones deciding when or if congress gets a raise.Obama and his SORRY ILK WORTHLESS all need thrown out of office and that means any who support the Budget busting things Obammy wants no matter what party they belong to.We need to start by getting rid of all the so called Foriegn Aid to those who hate us because money cannot buy freindship. Next we need to get rid of all the pork for each member of Congresses state and make that type of spending allowed in a budget bill all by itself.We need to make it so that No budget Item shall have any items in it that are not part of that bills area of coverage in other words No non Defense items on the defense budget bill and the same applies to all the other budget items.We must also BAN the so called Ominbus budget or spending bill this will force Congress to do their job and pass a budget each years as the law says they are to do.Obammy and his Thugs in the Senate Reid and his ilk have not allowed even one budget to come up for a vote since 2009 a direct VIOLATION of the Constitution.America needs to hold Congress accountable for not doing their job and make them live uder the same rules that they pass on to US.That way IGNORANCE like Obamacare would never get passed to hurt this Nation as that STUPIDITY will.

    When are the sheeple ans conservative “pun(d)k-its” going to admit that Obaa-baa-ma is a stone-cold Muslim-Marxist as well as the “Dem-O-Coms” are stone-cold communists? It is way past time to define these reprobates for who they really are!

  • Patriot7

    The fact that the farm was taken over by the pigs sounds eerily familiar to the current political state of affairs existing in our country. Sometimes analogies made in jest are more true to life than one would first believe.

    I seriously hate this guy…Him and his wife, Moochelle Antoinette!!

    When you’ve never had a real job, or felt real economic pain then you really have no idea, nor do you care about what the “little guy” is going through. Obama passed legislation that gives him lifetime secret service protection when the secret service could be protecting someone who really cares about America, and her people.

    http://politic365.com/2012/05/08/obamas-vacations-of-any-president-bush-racked-up-the-most/ TRUTH – FACT: Obama has been on vacation less days away from the white house than the past 3 republican presidents! Bush was out of the white house for a total of a combined 3 years on vacation to just one spot he frequented. ONE SPOT! He didnt golf??? U BELIEVE THAT???? Check your facts. And lets all be serious – if u were a millionaire – obviously not feeling the middle class and lower income classes pains – are u telling me u would cancel ur family vacations???? GET REAL.

    Animal Farm is a good topic to compare to Obama and his actions. FASCISM is the goal of the Obama administration which is exactly like the ideology of Animal Farm.
