so ... you think Obama's gonna say anything?

About this CEO's pay? Or do you think he'll wait till after his recent visit is a little further back in the rear view mirror?

Might not surprise me... After all, dont people have a RIGHT to visit Disneyworld and watch Disney movies for a fair price? They have obviously been taken advantage of by the elite who are playing on an unfair playing field.

I don't understand the relevance of pointing out that someone does their taxes within the current guidelines. If you stray outside of that, I would say yes there is an issue. If a candidate pays 15% and is within the law then can we really balk at that?

Sounds reasonable, but the majority of voters in this country now believe that if someone makes a dollar more than them, then they believe that they were cheated.
Those are Obama's voters, so don't for a minute believe that he won't be hitting all high playbook high-points of income envy and greedy rich people.
That's his last SotUA, his worldview, and his life, in a nutshell.

31.4 mil, eh? Pretty good. Just curious though, is that enough money? And more importantly who gets to decide when he's earned enough......?????

Got something that backs this opinion?

What a broad brush you paint with. Just because FOx and Romney and the rest of the clown GOP nominiees says something doesn't make it true. There is no such thing as "class Warfare" War on Christmas, War on Christians, etc.. THe GOP likes being the victim, it makes them look better.

You guys don't pay much attention to the news, do 'ya?

Class warfare and income envy is all around you, coming right from the bully pulpit of the White House that washes it over a nation of OWS'ers and a media that loves that stuff because it fits in with their worldview and future goals for this country.

Right!!! Everyone in this country NEEDS to be rich and they're envious of those that are. Right! That explains EVERYTHING. THanks for the simplistic point of view. You see what happens is the GOP knows they're going to be seen one way so they preemptively attack the Dems, the Media, etc.. They claim class warfare not as a defense but as an offense because they know if average people actually thought about who has their best interests in mind, it certainly is not the GOP. Karl Rove made a career out of this by planting ideas and mindsets...

Everybody gets their talking points and the sheep eat it up!

You've made a claim that speaks negatively of your fellow countrymen. Surely you must have something that can verify this low opinion you have of the 'majority of voters'. A Fox poll? Anything at all? And how about something that can verify your low opinion of your President's world view?

Surely we can agree that class warfare exists and that it has been a fulcrum for much of the left's arguments. Class warfare goes back beyond recorded history and has been used by one to sway the opinion of another for all of this history. Jealousy economics is a powerful weapon and the "have nots" and "I want what they haves" will always strive to obtain wealth from those that do.

I have a hard time swallowing your President's desire to increase taxes on those who have benefited the most from your society as an open declaration of class warfare.
