    SNIP.

    an August 5, 2009, interview on NBC News, Obama said that:

    “The last thing you want to do is raise taxes in the middle of a recession, because that would just suck up, take more demand out of the economy and put businesses in a further hole.”

    Here’s Obama talking about how tax hikes would put the economy in a further hole.
    YouTube - ‪Obama: "The LAST THING We Want to Do Is Raise Taxes During a Recession"‬‏
    But, that was in 2009.
    In the current debt and deficit talks Obama is proposing a trillion in new taxes… during a very weak economy.

    The Weekly Standard reported:

    In a 75-minute meeting Sunday night, President Obama once again demanded that more than $1 trillion in tax increases be part of any deficit reduction package attached to a vote on the debt ceiling. In the session, Obama rejected a Republican proposal to seek $2.5 trillion in spending cuts and reforms, and insisted on higher taxes on businesses and wealthy individuals.

    It’s a curious position, given the anemic economic growth and rising unemployment. And it’s even more curious considering that Obama himself has warned about the deleterious effects of raising taxes in a struggling economy.

    Stimulus didn't work, so I guess this is the last thing.

    Out to make a fool of yourself this morning? LOL! This isn't 2009, and the circumstances are changed. Now go crawl back under your toad stool and pray for rain.

    He's the typical Democrat Flip Flopper, whatever agenda the communist puppet masters pick for the puppet on any given day is what he goes with. It's not like he doesn't know what's going on though, he is the smartest human being on earth after all.

    Closing loopholes are tax increases now? How are you going to sell that to the majority of the American public that doesn't benefit from them? The Republicans just aren't being serious about deficit reduction. They keep talking about jobs and taxes, but we didn't let the Bush tax cuts expire and they're not allowing any new "revenue enhancements", so where are the jobs they've been promising this scenario would provide?!?!

    The stimulus worked exactly as planned, it just didn't work for what they pitched it to us for. How do you think they will get billions in campaign funding for 2012? they will filter that money to those that support them and the money will come right back into their campaign funds. Obama WILL have a billion to campaign on in 2012, and we paid for it all. Now that's hope and change you can believe in.

    Like telling your boyfriend, " The last thing I want to do is hurt you, but it's still on the list."
