    well well

    Fast-forward to today and we have Obama saying the only way he can raise $1.6 trillion is through tax hikes.

    Damn, he almost sounded like Romney there. If nothing else, he's consistently inconsistent.

    They've based the entire campaign on "class warfare."

    He can't back down down on raising taxes because his entire fan base wants to see the "symbolism" of punishing the rich.

    Even if there are different ways of generating more revenue, he has to somehow make the "rich pay their fair share." That's what this is all about.
