Thank You for providing the clips. I fail to see the lie. Taxes are scheduled to go up for everyone starting in Jan. 2011. That's not a lie. Hannity said obie wan will make sure that happens. Is that a lie? Congress has gone on break again without voting on the tax issue. So taxes will go up for everyone next year if the Bush tax cuts expire. So, I don't see the lie and I don't see destructiveness. Can you point out either?
You don't see how that's selective editing though? The way Hannity frames it makes it look like tax increases are all because of Obama and he conveniently leaves out the part about republican involvement. When you don't provide the entire context you can make your case look that much stronger, which in this instance is to derail Obama and make him look bad to Fox News viewers.
Yeah, because no one knows that Bush was the one who initiated the cuts and gave them an expiration date.
If Obama doesn't do anything to keep the tax cuts, he will be responsible for a tax increase.
Obama also spins the possibility of keeping Bush's tax break for those making under $250K as the "Obama Tax Cut for the Middle Class". Spin, spin, spin.
Sigh, people will see what they want to see. I tried.
Yes, you did try. And you failed to prove destructive.. See, most of us watching that clip know that Bush enacted tax cuts for everyone and when they expire taxes will go up on everyone. The role obie wan plays is in whether or not he signs a bill that lets the tax cuts expire for the wealthy or not. That's not destructive.
