Obama's Political Charade Divides Nation, Incites Anger

We have an overwhelmingly anti-tax GOP Congress. There is no chance that Mr. Obama’s tax increases will become law any time in the next two years. So it’s all just a charade to soothe Mr. Obama’s soak-the-rich base. That’s fine, because politics, like most of life, is largely about charades and myth-making. Let’s not pretend it’s serious government.

Mr. Obama’s theatrics are a carnival sideshow, designed to appeal to the Elizabeth Warren College of Envy. Like way too much of what Mr. Obama and his colleagues have done recently, they are much more about dividing us and whipping up anger than accomplishing anything useful, so writes Ben Stein in The American Spectator.

Ben Stein is a writer, actor, and lawyer, who served as a speechwriter in the Nixon administration as the Watergate scandal unfolded. He began his unlikely road to stardom when director John Hughes cast him as the numbingly dull economics teacher in the urban comedy, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."
