    Well Listen to his administration officials here. (warning the video is long but there are clips throughout showing his admin officials getting to the point of saying we will raise middle class taxes.

    Maybe Obama will take a cue from Reagan: raise taxes and call it a tax cut. People fell for it then...

    If Congress passes increases in income taxes that he said he'd oppose and he signs off on it, yep. He's toast.

    Considering he would have to sign off on it to make the bill law, yup your right.

    I held way back before the election that whoever won would only be a one-termer given the mess they were coming in to (aside from the tax issue). But both claimed they would only not raise taxes, but actually lower them.

    He wouldn't have to raise taxes if he didn't keep spending like crazy.

    Actually he would be Bill Clinton Jr. Bubba promised a Middle Class Tax Cut while in campaign mode then said he couldn't do it after he was elected.

    I think clinton got a pass on that since he eliminated deficit spending and the national debt during his 8 years.


    Obama will not get the same pass as unemployment and the deficit are both still climbing.

    IMO
