Hypocrisy alert: Where was the left when Obama said 'you people'?

Earlier today, Twitchy quashed a lapdog media and leftist frenzy over Ann Romney’s use of the phrase “you people” when dismissing the chatter about her husband’s tax returns. She allegedly said “we’ve given you people all you need to know.” Except Ann Romney never said that.

Turns out President Barack Obama is the one who said “you people” during an April speech at the University of Colorado, while on his barnstorming tour to badger Congress into preventing interest rates from rising on student loans:

Although Obama placed some blame on the conservatives in Congress for the hold-up on prioritizing higher education, he did note that it was not a partisan issue, but an issue that includes every American.

“It shouldn’t be a Democrat/Republican issue,” Obama said. “America is not just about you people doing well. America is about everybody doing well.”

This happened in April, nearly three months ago. Where was the media and leftist outrage then?

Bueller? Bueller? Anyone? Anyone? The silence is deafening. It’s shocking, right? But the hypocrisy isn’t.

Don’t expect leftists to protest Obama’s remark any time soon, if ever. It’s not in their nature to call out their own. After all, they’re the masters of do as I say, not as I do, with the president leading the way.

  • MrsDrLift

    The difference is Obama wasn’t being malevolent in the usage of the term. Ann Romney used it in a condescending tone.

    • Idaho Homeschool Mom

      Ann didn’t say that…read the article again.

    • Randal Redder

      The difference was SHE DIDN’T SAY THAT. Take your pseudo outrage elsewhere.

      How do you know she said it in a condescending tone? Especially when she never said it! How STUPID are #YOUPEOPLE!? Seriously, please throw yourself #OffACliff ASAP!

    • Terri Sweeney

      the difference is that Ann Romney didn’t say it at all…Obama did….in a condescending tone.

    • Tel-Jonah Stern

      I don’t know what you mean, sis. IMO Obama is always condescending. His cult-following wouldn’t have it any other way.

    • Cyborg0012

      What??? How can you judge Ann Romney’s tone of voice if she never even said something? OMG… you leftist really are mentally ill. Please read this and seek help because the sky is blue in the real world. http://www.hyscience.com/archives/2008/09/modern_liberali.php

    You people who get your shorts in a knot over ‘you people’ are a very wimpy and tedious lot. Lord, how I miss good ol’ military-grade profanity.

  • cheongyei

      No, he’ll have his people do it.

  • susan5042

    Besides, you people is just a way of saying everyone here. Why does everything have to mean more then it is. It’s not always about race! Or to be condescending. Get over yourselves. And she didn’t even say it, and so what if she did?

  • Steve Roberts

    The use of “You people” shows his mindset. He seperates and elevates himself from other Americans. It would mean little if not for all of who & what Obama is, a Divisive, destructive, socialist & controlling ideologue. Even 100% of his OWN party have rejected his Budget proposals, yet Obamanites worship the ground he walks on. No wonder he is so arrogant, as he knows he controls the minds of millions, in which he could do no wrong!

  • albertoapardo

    Sorry to break it to y’all, but “you” and “people” have been banned. Prepare to start using “thou” and “gentlepersons” more frequently.

    How about when he goes over seas and tell other world leaders that the US has YOUR BACK. OK first of all does he not understand that a SLANG like that when it is interpreted into another language makes him sound silly. When you make a speech in other cultures it is very important to NOT use slang and to use a dialect that is easy to interpret. Just another glowing example of his lack of experience and intelligent.
