Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

House passes Bush tax code bill, and this was a big win for…Obama?

Listening to Politico, you would think that the “Hostage Negotiator-in-Chief” was validated with the House vote.  Just to make sure I’m understanding this correctly…

The passed bill extended the current tax code for the middle income group.  Obama wanted this.  Pass.

The passed bill extended the current tax code for, and did not raise taxes on, the upper income group.  Obama opposed this.  Fail.

The passed bill extended the current tax code for, and did not raise taxes on, capital gains.  Obama opposed this.  Fail.

The passed bill extended the current tax code for, and did not raise taxes on, estates (i.e. the death tax).  Obama opposed this.  Fail.

So naturally, a 25% success rate constitutes a win for Obama.  Man, that must be one helluva curve that liberals grade on, huh?

Look at the bigger picture, though.  Oba-Mao argued for all of 2008 (and before) that the Bush tax structure was bad for the economy.  It was so bad for the economy that…um…he had to keep it going, so as not to harm the economy.  Got it.  Thanks for the clarification.

The Economic Illiterate-in-Chief says he’ll be happy to fight on this issue again in two years.  That makes two of us.  He’ll have to argue, with a straight face, that he believes raising taxes on a group of people (business owners, the evil rich, people who die and have estates, and investors) will improve the economy.  I look forward to having that argument in an election year.

Additionally, by Obama signing off on Bush’s signature achievement (the tax code), he won’t be able to blame Bush (or, at least, he won’t be able to do so and have it stick) if the economy fails to improve…and it will be brought to America’s attention that Bush was right and Obama was wrong if the economy does improve after extending these current tax rates.

  1. Brought to the attention of who? The “main stream” media will do NO such thing; they have already re-named Bush’s tax cuts as “Obama’s Tax Cut Compromise” (wow…not raising taxes is a tax cut? Weird…).
    As is has been for a long time, the media will see to it that the average shmoe will NOT get even a remotely accurate rundown of the previous four years!
    Hope so, but good luck on it.

  4. I will watch Obama more closely. I do not trust him one bit. I definitely do not trust his bootlickers in the Leftist media.
