A liberal friend of mine recently lamented the accusation that our president was dividing America. He called the charge "exasperating" and claimed it was supported by the "flimsiest of evidence." Ironically, his inability to see the truth is itself probative evidence of how divided America has become. Facilitated by desperate, baseless, yet effective accusations that those who oppose our president are racist, Barack Obama will go down in history as the most divisive chief executive ever to occupy the Oval Office. And the evidence is far from flimsy.
President Obama has talked for over four years about "leveling the playing field" and lowering taxes for “working” Americans. Who are these mysterious "working Americans"? Most small and large business owners who take the risks, create jobs, and constitute the engine of the U.S. economy, work longer and harder than 99% of the so-called "99%." Yet I can assure you our president is not referring to small business owners when he describes or mentions “working Americans." The reason is simple – he is dividing America into factions for political gain.
