    OK, I'll go with his exact wording and it has to be rated completely false. Deal?

    Nope. If that statement is not 100% correct, you pay. I know your little tricks.

    Seriously, you and I both know that's not correct. Now, change the wording to what he said earlier in the speech, to (paraphrased) "Warren Buffett pays less of a % in taxes on his income than his secretary," is possibly correct. His second statement? A lie. And don't say it was a mistake -- since the text of his speech was released beforehand. It was written that way. And it was written that way on purpose.

    So. If not 100% correct, you pay. Deal?

    **It occurs to me they may not even rate it...since surely she hasn't released her income tax return.

    Good speech even though I'm fully aware absolutely nothing will get done again this year just like last year. Obama's absolutely right though about how American companies should bring jobs back here to America then they can get their tax cuts, if not then your not supporting America and should be taxed.

    I believe the standard tea party response is all those freedoms guaranteed in the Declaration of Independence.

    No. No one is perfect for me. No one could ever be perfect. I stated things that I liked, I'm not going to sit back and kiss his ring because he's not a righty. If he's wrong on something for me, I'll say it.
