While I take exception to several parts of Obama's recent speech to students at the University of Michigan, this one annoys me the most:
"What troubles me is when I hear people say that all of government is inherently bad . . . For when our government is spoken of as some menacing, threatening foreign entity, it ignores the fact that in our democracy, government is us."
Bullshit, Mr. Obama, Bullshit. If it was, then my taxes would be lower.
I am not your government, nor am I a part of it, or is it a part of me. I merely endure this government.
By the way, Mr. Obama: don't use the object pronoun "us" as a predicate noun. You would never say "Us is government."
