T you make things up with the best of them.

Let's be clear on the fact that Bush II did a lot of ridiculously dumb things which hurt our country. The two big ones were Irag and the tax breaks he gave to the top couple %.

The president is reversing these disastrous decisions. EOS.

Clearly the Bush tax cuts favored the non rich. Giving a bone to the rich to balance the generous one given to everyone else was fair enough.

You don't seem to grip the numbers. According to the CBO, each year, 288 Billion goes to the non rich and 42 Billion goes to the rich. That is the estimated lost current revenue if all tax cuts were reversed. Which number do you think makes the most difference?

What number makes a dent in our fiscal problem while the other number is just political fodder. A tax to nowhere!

If you are doing the little one alone you are just gaming the voters and getting nothing done. Combine the two, cut spending and you start to get somewhere.

Obama is just a gamer.
