Living in Barack Obama's world

It is but to laugh: Barack Obama said that he's spent more time in the real world than Mitt Romney. David Harsanyi has fun what people who have lived in Obama's "real world" have learned.
Of course, because those of us who’ve spent time there know that after two years of part-time work in your preferred profession you can become CEO of the entire company.

Those of us who’ve spent time in the real world know that you can become CEO without even showing anyone your CV.

Those of us who’ve spent time in the real world know that if your business fails government will send you a check to stay afloat.

Those of us who’ve spent time in the real world know that if you want to grow your business you have to max out every credit card you can get your hands on – and after that, we hit the kids’ college funds.

Those of us who’ve spent time in the real world know that if you want your business to expand and create jobs you simply blame millionaires for their success.

Those of us who’ve spent time in the real world know that if your business is failing you can blame ATMs or other technological advances for the lack of productivity.

Those of us who’ve spent time in the real world can see your wife’s salary jump from $121,910 to $316,962 per year after your husband becomes a U.S. senator – “a job that was strangely left unfilled after she stepped down to focus on her husband’s campaign.” (thanks Jim Geraghty)

Those of us who’ve spent time in the real world always blame the guy who ran things four years ago for our own failures. We can send our kids to private schools while condemning others to crappy public ones. We vacation in Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard while preaching that everyone else should give up oil for wind.
Yes, Barack Obama has inhabited a world much farther from reality than the worlds Mitt Romney has inhabited.

Those of us who live in the real world know how easy it is to make millions of dollars from sales of an autobiography you didn't write about a life you didn't live.

And don't forget, Stan, if it is your autobiography you can populate it with fictional, composite people who will act just like you want them to act.
