Posted on 10/27/2011 2:38:37 PM PDT by tcrlaf
In an interview with former White House press secretary and Obama campaign advisor Robert Gibbs on Thursday's NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer fretted over a report showing "the rich are getting richer" and pleaded: "So what responsibility does President Obama have in terms of dealing with income distribution in this country?" [Audio available here]
Lauer began his push from the left by explaining: "Some of these young people are the same young people who are occupying parks across the country and they're out there protesting Wall Street. They're also protesting the White House."

Yet, he hasn't redistributed HIS INCOME 'Fairly', has he?
The hypocrites in the media are already beginning the full-on Obama propaganda for 2012.
How much does a NBC cameraman make compared to you, Matt.
I would love nothing better than to see these wealthy commies end up dirt poor.
When Lauer refers to the rich, he means: “Those other rich people, not me.”
How's that for a starter, Matt Lauer, you fatuous dope?
Matt probably pays more for his girl(boy?)friend’s bikini waxes than the average worker makes.
If it weren’t so true it would be comical. These idiots are the rich as well. Because you make your money in entertainment and media that excludes you from the evil greedy rich who employ people while you look at yourself in the mirror. Hollywood, politicians, media people, and musicians should donate half of thier earnings to the do nothings who are asking only the rich and greedy to hand over thier stuff. Put your money where your mouth is hypocrites!
Matt Lauer works for GE
GE made billions and paid no taxes
GE ships more jobs overseas than any Major Corporation
GE gets a Bailout from US Taxpayers
Matt it seems if you were paid less , GE could pay more in taxes and pay back your TARP money.
Matt you are the one they are protesting. Dummy
Matt’s concern for the “unfairness of the system” extends only until the commercial break for the next segment.
It must burn his chaps that a mere “radio shock jock” like Rush Limbaugh makes over TEN TIMES what he makes! LOL
I agree Matt!! Send me 27 grand of your income next week. Let’s get this ball rolling. You will feel so much better about yourself.
CANNOT BE UNSEEN!!!
Matt needs to re-distribute NOW. He needs to move into his closest government housing in NY and “give back” 90% to his new community. That is if his lilly white butt can live that long.
The Pelosi Democrats and Obama have been trying to screw "rich, white people" since 2006. (And they HAVE succeeded! It's just that they've hurt the people who elected them many times as badly.)
Matt should have 99% of his income removed and redistributed. It’s only fair.
I love your post.
Since the Hollyweird crowd and the MSM news readers provide no tangible benefit to the country, I think they should be the first to be hit with Baraq’s new salary cap.
According to virtualglobetrotters.com, this waterfront house in Southampton, NY was bought by Matt Lauer for about 2.1 million dollars:
Nice, but not as nice as this house, in Sag Harbor, NY.
So hey, maybe Matt can invite some of those Occupy punks over to one of his two places for some drumming and barbecue. Heck, he is so nice he'd probably let them take a dump on his front lawns.
Guess we’re all supposed to work for the select few...commie bastards.
Uh . . . NONE?
“Please Mr 0bama, don’t permit Capitalism in Amerika”!!!!!!!!!!!
If only Lenin could have lived to see this day.......
Let the Today show be a leader in this distribution movement. NBC should pool the Today show’s income/benefits budget and divide it evenly among the staff .. Matt, clerks and secretaries, cameramen, producers, writers, makeup artists and hair stylists, the drivers who pick the stars up at their homes at 4am .. just everyone who works on the show. It would only be fair.
How did we get to a place where the mainstream national press endorses the premise here?
An overpaid, brainless, do-nothing demagogue who sits with his back to a huge window at street level should really, really think a little more deeply before shooting off his stupid mouth.
