Big Fat Hairy Demagogue

Mr. President, I heard your Independence Day address where you said,
We celebrate the principles that are timeless, tenets first declared by men of property and wealth but which gave rise to what Lincoln called a new birth of freedom in America — civil rights and voting rights, workers' rights and women's rights, and the rights of every American, and on this day that is uniquely American we are reminded that our Declaration, our example, made us a beacon to the world.
(emphasis mine). Men of property and wealth? But despite that fundamental flaw, we finally managed to overcome that handicap? Is that what you're saying Mr. President? Barack Obama, your property and wealth is worth more than that of at least 95% of American's will ever be. Since you are wealthy, does that devalue your principles? I'm calling you on your shameless Marxist attempt to slime the founders while pretending to give them props.

The founding principles are quite different from yours, you know. Those men of property and wealth said that human rights are a birthright [from the creator], they do not flow from any government [welfare, affirmative action], and no government, no man, can take them  away [taxes, regulation].

Furthermore, Mr. President, by signing the Declaration of Independence, those men risked far more than you ever have -- their fortunes (although they were not all rich, a fact that you conveniently omitted), their families, their lives -- so that you would have the liberty that you so obviously do not appreciate, or even approve of. Don't bother to deny it, I already know what you think. You have made no secret of it, and the Internet remembers.
