Anyone who reads this blog knows we’re not always big fans of President Obama’s economic policies and where the economy is headed under his administration.
But you have to draw the line somewhere when it comes to criticism.
You see, there’s this billionaire, Leon Cooperman, and he wrote a now well-known memo harshly criticizing the president for daring to criticize, well, his fellow rich Wall Street colleagues. Keep in mind: Cooperman agrees with the president on most policy issues, including taxing the rich, and has voted Democratic in the past.
So what is he upset about? The president’s “tone.”
Say what? Hasn’t the guy ever heard of “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me”? Except he’s kind of reversed the logic of the old children’s saying to: “Names and tone hurt my feelings, but sticks and stones are OK.”
Or something like that.
