I was listening to his minions yesterday and they sure made it sound like a tax hike was coming. Do you remember when it was just going to be the “rich” people that were going to get whacked? Well, I guess the rich can’t cover the bill on their own.
It sure is disappointing when a POTUS backs out of a commitment or, as it can also be described, lies. Bush with his “read my lips” and Clinton with his “I did not have sexual relations” speeches. I believed every word that came out of their collective mouths and it turns out I was duped.
Well, color me duped again. When Barry said he was not going to raise middle class taxes “one cent”, I took him at his word. I thought he knew what he was talking about and had a definitive plan to make things better. I guess not…
Don’t get me wrong. I still appreciate his efforts to get me a new car, low price mortgage, free TV box converter, and free healthcare. I just never imagined I would have to pay for this stuff. If I knew it wasn’t really “free”, then I might have looked at things differently.
We should be able to trust our politicians and take them at their word. When I was young, Richard Nixon did a great job of keeping things on the up and up. Where is that kind of honesty and integrity today? I bet Sarah Palin wouldn’t have lied. She compares herself to a cougar or muskrat or something. As we all know, animals don’t lie.
Fortunately, there are still virtuous institutions that I can blindly believe in. The stock market, Major League Baseball, professional wrestling, and I just came across this guy named Bernie Madoff who seems to have a pretty good thing going.
If you are going to raise my taxes, Barry, just let me know when you plan on doing it and how much it is going to cost me. It seems the easier play is to just cut out the middle man, the government, and give the money directly but what do I know.
Sarah, if you are out there (and I know you are), please swoop in to save us all. If it’s not too much to ask, could you wear those red pumps that you wore during the campaign? Oh, and wear you hair down. Because, if I am going to get screwed up the pooper, I want to enjoy it. (Glad to see you are at least going to wear a glove).
