Anyhow, all I see you doing is cherry picking metrics and facts, but I guess everyone does that, including myself. I can just as easily make a list of stuff which indicates you are correct, but I guess that's pointless, and I am sure you are aware of the facts that I would post.
I saw the second half of the state of the union, and I watched the part about the wealth disparity. I do not recall him saying anything about raising taxes to the rich. All he was talking about was closing loopholes in the tax code, so that corporations and the wealthy have to pay their fair share of taxes. He wasn't raising taxes - rather he was changing the tax code.
I think that is a very distinct and important difference. And I think it makes sense. The tax code needs to be simplified, we all know this, we all want this, but the people in power keep it the way it is because as that one really successful investor said, he pays less taxes than his secretary.

obama is a pimp pandering to people who blame their failures on "the rich"
Buffett doesn't pay less than his secretary. He pays a higher tax on his earned income than she does
anyone who believes that idiocy is really gullible
It's entirely possible that he pays his secretary more than $100k/yr, so he might very well pay a lower effective tax rate, even if we don't include his unrealized capital gains.
But I may have this wrong.
