    The GOP is at war with Obama. They will do everything in their power to prevent him and the D's from getting credit for a booming economy, and that includes killing the economic recovery. Deficits didn't matter to Republicans when Bush and Reagan were in office, but now suddenly they do. Are you that brainwashed?
    No, just more than you

    You have no concept of leadership. The Democrats were at war with Reagan too but Reagan showed leadership skills, something neither you or Obama understand.

    Keep diverting and ignoring the Obama record as any good little Obamabot will do

The only people arguing otherwise are the RW partisan hacks at Fox, Talk Radio and the WSJ Op-Ed Page.

    Do you claim you know better than people who deal with the economy for a living?
    Only need to be better than you and I have proven that.

    Missing in your world is personal responsibility and the failure of liberalism as well as leadership. Looks like 60% of the people in this country disagree with you but then what would anyone else expect from an Obamabot

    You keep using the term ROBBING or ROB. That is ridiculous hyperbole.

    Okay, let's say "tax". I think it's wrong for the government to tax money from one person and give it to someone else. Do you disagree with this opinion?

    So you're OK with the income redistribution concept but prefer to call taxation, for that purpose, "taking by force of law"?

    That's not exactly what I said. Both are dependent on the government. But the rich are dependent on the government MORE. The richer you are the more dependent upon the government to help create wealth and protect it. I don't care what it is: interstate highway system, military industrial complex,FCC, Judiciary system, banking, etc. etc. etc. Where would Jeff Bezos be today if there were no internet?

    It's only fair they pay a higher proportion of earning on taxes. ie Progressive taxation.

    Wow, the govt. in your world creates wealth? The govt. creates the atmosphere for the private sector to create wealth not vice versa. How about those who earn money in this country but pay nothing in income taxes?

    You are a perfect example of why we have problems in this country today, your ideology is a failure everywhere in the world and you won't be happy until your ideology destroys this country as well. With Obama you are well on your way to achieving that goal

    Typical liberalism is all about implementing social justice and jealousy. You show it every day.
    You do realize your hero, President George W. Bush is responsible for much of those people who no longer pay taxes, don't you?

    Yup. GWB's "tax cuts for the rich" that Dems dishonestly demagogued in fact made our tax system more progressive.
