“It’s not fair!” Heard that one in your lifetime? Seems to be the constant theme of the Obama economic model. But is “fairness” in the eye of the beholder? SNL Hall of Famer Jon Lovitz voted for Barack Obama but takes issue with the President’s attack on people who work hard and succeed in America. He expressed his sentiments during a recent comedy routine. His language was deplorable and indefensible. Suddenly he is being attacked by Hollywood and the mainstream media for speaking his mind.
Mitt Romney, on the other hand, stands in front of a fire house in NYC with Rudy Guilliani and a female heckler drops a relentless series of F-bombs on him — but that’s OK with the media. Romney deserves the lambasting. After all he is rich and beating up on rich people is the new “fair” in America. That is the way of modern politics. Sorta makes you wish for old days when slander, libel, and bad manners were truly frowned upon across the board.
This is no defense of either character. It is an example of how “fairness” works. If you agree with people in power, you are protected. If you disagree — not so much. That is the much bigger issue and the much greater danger for all.
