Obama Seeks Tax Increase on ‘Rich’

Posted on | July 9, 2012 | 17 Comments

So we’re back to this, huh? Another class-warfare fight over the “Bush tax cuts”? And more dishonest spin in the headlines:

Obama Seeks 2013 Tax Cuts Within Limits
New York Times

Obama to call for Bush tax cut extensions
for those making less than $250,000


Fight Renewed Over Bush Tax Cuts
Wall Street Journal

Is anyone with an IQ over 70 fooled by this? No, but Obama’s not trying to reach people with IQs over 70, he’s trying to reach independent “swing” voters — people so profoundly stupid, they don’t even know whether they’re Republicans or Democrats.

    You are correct, the democrat party speaks to the individuals that do not pay attention or could care less. They are generally the only individuals not paying their fair share. 

  • wirejerk

    How about so profoundly suspicious that they don’t trust either party.

  • Mortimer Snerd

    Don’t tax you, don’t tax me.  Tax that man behind the tree!

  • Bob Belvedere

    Perhaps now more people will understand why I want to return the right to vote back to only property owners [and men].

  • dwduck

    Usually, that’s just a rationalization used by those who can’t be bothered to care. But there are those rare iconoclasts who are exceptions to the rule…

    The silver lining in this is how desperate Obama is that he even has to pretend like he is for any kind of tax cut at all. Our hopes and prayers (and efforts) need to be that there are enough people sufficiently smart to see through this despicable class warfare ruse to make Obama unemployed come November.

    Some of us are neither Social Democrats or Republicans because we recognize that they are merely the PKSH and liberal wings of the same party, admittedly there are a few renegades in the liberal wing but not enough to make a difference.

  • Bob Belvedere

    Seems to me the only renegades in the Democratic Party are those Bolshes who want The Revolution NOW!

    The only renegades at all are the handful of conservatives in the Republican (liberal) wing of our ruling elite.

    As a property owner, and a woman…Molon labe!

    Nothing like playing around with the little people’s lives to score political points. spit

  • Bob Belvedere

    That could be fun.

  • Anton Sherwood

    I’m so profoundly stupid, I even believe there are political positions other than Republican and Democrat.

  • Pathfinder’s wife

    LOL…careful there!  It might be just a wee bit too much fun (which can be bad for a person).
