nice spin. Not a single fact in there.
My favorite is the challenge to Obama saying your taxes won't go up if you make < 250k: "Taxes on tanning salons and cigarettes are already affecting the middle class"
Ha! This is the best this guy could come up with? At least lie and make up some doomsday loophole scenario where taxes may increase for some obscure slice of the population.

You're running out of ammunition, neocons, and it's really obvious...

I think he did an excellent job on the transparency part since Obama had made so many promises along that line that he has allowed to be smashed all over the place.

Speaking of transparency, it seems that the new Cap and Trade bill is being worked on "behind closed doors" and like the Obamacare bill he will sign it within hours of its passage, and pass it surely will. I imagine they want to pass it about November 1 so people won't see what it is doing to them before the election.

...and I suppose when 0bama signs a law that raises taxes on health care insurance, cigarettes, health care devices, etc... then it only applies to "some obscure slice of the population"??

I think you might qualify as the Most Naive Person on the Forum.

Either that, or you're 21 years old and have no historical or real-life context to apply to that airbag opinion of yours.
