Political Quote of the Day

From comedian Jon Lovitz, who is turning out to be a better spokesman for capitalism and against Obama's class warfare rhetoric than just about any Republicans I can think of.  Lovitz recently discussed Obama and his connection to big money:
But what I find is he's hypocritical with saying the, you know, the one percent don't get us, and, you know, he's a multimillionaire now, you know, they're not paying their fair share of taxes, now I'm going over to George Clooney's house to get money from millionaires and billionaires, and he collected $15 million, and, you know, "Wall Street are the bad guys, but now I have to go to a dinner with Wall Street people to get money for my campaign."
And this:
Yeah, I just think he should, instead of making people victims of people who are successful, we should be telling people, "Look, if you're having a hard time, I feel bad for you, let's look at what you're doing, let's teach you how to succeed, let's give you the tools to succeed, as opposed to turning everybody into victims. A victim mentality it what he's selling, and nobody with a victim mentality will get anywhere, ever. They will never succeed.
That's a great description of the "teach a man to fish" theory versus Obama's "take away the other guy's fish and give it to the 'victim'" approach.

Lovitz is becoming my new hero.  He's very funny too.
