Lou Dobbs On Obama's Tax Proposal: 'This Is A Desperate President That Finds Himself In A Dead Heat And Doesn't Know What To Do!'Topics: Political News and commentaries
Lou Dobbs says of Barack Obama's proposal to let the Bush tax rates expire for the top income-tax bracket, "The imperial Presidency will not make this determination because he has an election [where] he will stand accountable to the American people -- and the Republicans who control the House of Representative and his own party are in disagreement with him." In other words, Dobbs thinks that yesterday's statement is nothing more than cheap politics, and with an unhealthy serving of desperation (H/t - Hot Air):
Lou Dobbs weighed in on Obama's latest news on today's America Live, saying, "For this president to even stand up here, by himself, and say he's going to raise taxes, first of all ignores the fact that this is a Republican led Congress that is adamantly against raising taxes to their credit and secondly, it ignores the fact that his own party is not participating in this call for taxes."I await with bated breath for Barack Hussein's next attempt to change the subject (it's always a new diversion with a new subject ... amnesty for illegals, gay mariage, etc., etc.) following the very next dismal jobs report that's certain to follow the previous 41 months in a row.
He added, "This is a desperate president that finds himself locked up in a, basically, dead heat in battleground states all over the country'" he doesn't know what to do."
Dobbs said that if President Obama defines rich as $250K in this country, then he has a 'very sorry understanding of what wealth is in this country.' He doesn't think Obama will stand on this issue because he foresees the Democrats and Republicans resisting him.
Meanwhile, as Greg Campbell noted a couple days ago, the Obama jobs disaster rolls on ...
What would truly be hilarious, if it weren't so maddening, is that in May, 2004, when unemployment was at 5.6% and the Bush administration touted the success of having created 310,000, a young man running for the U.S. Senate named Barack Obama gave a radio address denouncing the statistics as not being good enough. Yet, we are told to "not read too much into the jobs report" when the Obama administration can, with all of its creative ways to inflate the statistics, squeeze out only 80,000 measly jobs. In fact, we're told not to "read too much into the jobs report" a lot ... I mean, a lot!And he wants us to give him four more years?
The unemployment rate has been above 8% for the past 41 months. This month, the Obama administration said,"Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report and it is informative to consider each report in the context of other data that are becoming available."Okay, sure. That makes sense. There can be economic abnormalities and outlying factors. One bad job report is not the end of the world. The previous month, the Obama administration said,"Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report and it is helpful to consider each report in the context of other data that are becoming available."The month before that, the Obama administration said the same thing verbatim. And the month before that, and the month before that, and so on, and so on for 30 months in a row.
