Rather than rail against "income inequality", wouldn't it be refreshing to hear President Obama call attention and bring praise to this 1%er who has been a remarkable steward of the wealth he amassed over the span of many decades. A career in which he EARNED his way to success, employed hundreds if not thousands of other Americans along the way, and continues to give to mankind via his perpetual family Foundation legacy. God Bless America for these top 1%ers. Without them, America would not be the remarkable nation it is today.
