    Consistent with his habit of Voting Present when he was a legislator, Obama has signed, from Hawaii, the biggest tax increase in ages with an autopen.

    How tacky, but I will give him 10 Points For Consistency.

    President Obama on Wednesday signed legislation that raises taxes on the wealthiest Americans and avoids the so-called “fiscal cliff,” which threatened to send the economy into decline.

    The White House said late Wednesday that Obama reviewed a copy of the bill in Hawaii, where he is vacationing with his family. The president instructed that the legislation — passed by the House and Senate earlier this week — be signed by autopen, a device that emulates Obama's signature.

    The law, dubbed the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, raises taxes on individuals making at least $400,000 and on married individuals filing together at $450,000 and higher. It also extends unemployment benefits for more than 2 million Americans while postponing the sequester for two months. ...

    Indeed. Just as the regulations for the Affordable Care Act say that family health insurance plans do not have to be affordable for families, the Taxpayer Relief Act contains no actual tax relief.

    OMG, an autopen!! Surely, after failing to remove Obama from office this past November, the President's critics have finally come to understand the things that are truly important for our country!

    All while sleeping 14 hours a day. You know, I finally see why the GOP keep referring to Obama as a Messiah. Only a god could twist the fabric of time to cram 40 hours into every day!!

    Obama is "Webster" from 80s TV fame, as an adult.

    Better yet, Obama is the Eddie Murphy character in the movie "Trading Places".
