    Funny how conservative Obama tries to be during election year:

    Obama corporate taxes: He would slash 'dozens' of tax breaks - Feb. 22, 2012

    Obama is admitting that conservatives are right, lower taxes is better for the economy.

    You forgot the rest of the article, Obama would close the myriad loopholes corps take advantage of; net gain for taxpayers, a break for HONEST corporations.

    I say we call him on it and call for it to come down to 15%.

    That's just liberal lip service. He may speak in favor of lowering taxes but he'll sign all the tax hikes that reach his desk. He likes to play good guy/bad guy.

    He's not trying to be conservative. He's trying to walk a centrist path. Obama has repeatedly proposed centrist solutions to issues. But the partisans in Congress keep stomping their feet.

    Don't worry. Republicans will still find a way to excoriate him for it.

    Conservatives are centrist. Where are all these repeated proposed 'centrist' solutions he has put forth? He has only introduced progressive measures.
