Despite Bashing the ‘Rich’ For 8 Years, Obama Spending Retirement on Ritzy Yacht

Liberals gushed and "freaked out" at a photo of the Obamas on a yacht. Did they forget President Obama attacked the 'rich' throughout his presidency?

Despite Bashing the ‘Rich’ For 8 Years, Obama Spending Retirement on Ritzy Yacht

President Obama enjoyed a day of his post-presidency on a yacht, and Obama fans have put aside years of his attacks on the “wealthiest” Americans to gush over their former poster child.

BuzzFeed noted that the Obamas hung out “with cool friends Oprah Winfrey and Bruce Springsteen” on the yacht, and the internet “freaked out a little bit” with joy.

The ex-president Obama that soaks up the sun on a yacht with celebrities is a far cry from candidate and President Obama, who repeatedly bashed wealthy Americans – especially his 2012 opponent, Mitt Romney.

Over eight years, Obama:

  • Sold a deficit-reduction plan in his first term that raised taxes by talking about “millionaires and billionaires,” “wealthiest Americans,” “fairness,” and “shared burden”
  • Mocked Romney for the size of his pension: “It’s not as big as yours, so it — it doesn’t take as long
  • Proudly noted he made the tax code “more progressive than it’s been in decades,” but also noted the “wealthiest Americans” have to do more to “contribute and pay their fair share

It seems ex-president Obama actually prefers hanging out with the wealthy. Don’t expect his feverish supporters to be mad about it, though.
