The Hill claimed on January 19 that Obama was playing ‘Robin Hood’ because he is offering free college to one group by taking money from another. That is NOT Robin Hood.
The common misconception of Robin Hood says that he was stealing from the rich to give to the poor. That is NOT what happened in the story. In the story of Robin Hood, the Sheriff of Nottingham was taxing the people of the kingdom into poverty, and using that money to the benefit of people who did not earn it. In other words, Robin Hood was stealing from the government’s tax coffers and returning the money to the people.
In essence, Obama is the Sheriff of Nottingham. He is taxing the people of the kingdom to enrich himself and the people that he is counting upon to make him the king.
