President Obama dug deep into his class warfare bag of tricks and pulled out…a silver spoon.
Via The Examiner:
President Obama assured working-class Ohioans that he wasn’t born into a wealthy family, in an apparent shot at Republican rival Mitt Romney. “Somebody gave me an education,” Obama said today. “I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Michelle wasn’t. But somebody gave us a chance.”
The president, calling as he was for increased government investment in student aid, seemed to be implying that receiving an education paid for by family is less legitimate than receiving it due to government support.
The transparent slap at GOP front-runner Mitt Romney didn’t throw off conservatives on Twitter still having fun with Obama dog jokes.
Obama: "I Wasn't Born With A Silver Spoon In My Mouth". No, he eats his dog-pizza off silver platters.—
