There was a time, I think, when business owners working with the public had the sense to shut-up about their politics. But from TPM:
“I think an awful lot of the country is becoming comfortable with the government taking care of them,” Rich Kelly, 59, said. “I think that’s a mistake.”
Kelly wore a blue polo shirt that read “Hard Times Cafe,” a local chain of 16 restaurants he owns with his wife. “There’s one thing I do very well, and that’s create jobs,” Kelly said. “In the last four years, I’m a bad guy.” According to Obama, he said, “I make too much money and I don’t share and I’m not, you know, I don’t play well with others.”
Well, here’s the thing. I pay taxes. A lot of taxes. I’m not part of the 47%. Truth be told, I’m not even part of the 99%. And yet, here I am voting for Obama. So, Rich, you can take your self-righteous whining and shove it.
And I can find somewhere else to get a bowl of mediocre chili in the DC area. And I hope other Democrats out there do the same.
