In his typical campaign-promises-are-always-to-be-hedged-on fashion, Barack Obama is now saying that he may "keep" those nasty "GW" Bush tax cuts for the rich "if" the economy is tanking (See Full Story).
He now feels that taking away those tax cuts could hurt the economy even further. Golly...gee...let me see! Is this an admission that the tax cuts for the rich are actually beneficial to the economy? Is he now admitting that the 2000 Clinton recession and the disastrous economic effects of 9/11 were reversed by those tax cuts for the rich? Are we going to have four more years of the Bush; even if McCain isn't elected? Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings (Psalms 8:2)!
Apparently, the elimination of those tax cuts can only be done during a good economy. That way, hopefully, our economy could survive the consequences of doing so. Hopefully! Now batting, rookie "far left" hander, Barack Obama!
