READ MY LIPS- NO NEW TAXES!
Truer words were never so aptly spoken when George Bush, Sr. said this over 20 years ago in his campaign for President of the United States.
The problem was, he had to raise taxes and it cost him as Bill Clinton became the 42nd President of the United States four short years later.
Will Barack Obama meet the same fate if he reneges on his promises of no higher taxes on the middle class while at the same time raising taxes on the wealthiest 2% of the nation as the George Bush, Jr. tax cuts expire?
We shall see because Obama is all for a tax on medical coverage benefits, something which then Republican candidate John McCain was all for in 2008 and which was part of the reason he lost the election in a landslide to Obama.
That's the problem with these politicians, right or left, Democratic or Republican, liberal, conservative ... it just doesn't matter because they eventually become boot lickers (I will keep the language clean this time around) of the corporations and their lobbyists and the hell with the rest of us.
MSNBC's Ed Schultz hit the nail right on the head earlier this evening on "The Ed Show" when he stated that President Obama must not listen to the advisers giving him this bad direction and he must not abandon his base.
Whether or not Obama heeds this straight talking advice from "big Ed" remains to be seen, but one thing for sure... Obama should do his history research and learn a lesson from the elder Bush when he was in the oval office.
