    I notice the Obama attackers have already shown that they do not know the difference between 2 months and 4 years.

    Also, as far as I know, smoking cigarettes is still a choice. The types of taxes that, I believe, Obama was discussing during his campaign, are not, and are of a completely different type. This isn't even very convincing .

    Another example of a liberal politician lying to the people in order to get elected.

    Some "change".
    No surprise. The guy took a page right out of Clinton's handbook.
    And he's looking to spend even more.

    During the campaign he could not name one program he would cut beyond the military.

    After all the crap during the first 60-days, why would anybody be surprised with President Marx now?

    Clearly they think that 5.4% = 100%. I wonder if they'd apply their standards evenly to all things...

    Also, as far as I know, smoking cigarettes is still a choice. The types of taxes that, I believe, Obama was discussing during his campaign, are not, and are of a completely different type. This isn't even very convincing .
    Pretty much. Essentially they say Obama has broken promises on not raising taxes on a certain part of the population whenever a choice based consumption tax is raised because some people in that group choose to partake in that activity. Stupid really. Similarly, we could argue that Obama's policies which could be causing home values to keep falling is a tax break as property assessments fall bringing down property taxes! How many anti-Obamas do we see praising him for that tax cut? Double standards are like flies on the walls of this zoo.

    And for those who pretend to dislike the use of tax policy to shape social policy, they are lying through their teeth.

    Problem is a lot of your side don't "pay their fair share"... to quote a famous but disgraced leftist.

    John Edwards, Rangel, Daschle, Geithner, Jefferson, Sebelius, Killefer... to name a few tax cheats.

    As far as tax policy... it comes right out of the Commi Manifesto... you may like it, but others see it what it is for:
    A tool to divide and control people.
    Without a punitive tax code you wouldn't have the tax warfare claptrap the left keeps puking out every four years... nor the imbecilic behavior lathered up by Congress and the president about AIG.

    You really want to go there?

    You're calling me a leftist?

    You want to stick to that argument? You might want to ask Navy about what happened to him when he did that. You got one post to retract that.

    Good luck proving they intentionally tried to cheat the government. Given your utter lack of any understanding about the IRC, all you have is posturing.

    LOL. Have you even read anything Marx wrote? There is no tax policy in a Communist country. There are no wages. Everyone gets what everyone needs. Arguing that a Communist book promotes tax policy when a Communist country has no personal income to tax is hysterical.

    Without a punitive tax code you wouldn't have the tax warfare claptrap the left keeps puking out every four years... nor the imbecilic behavior lathered up by Congress and the president about AIG.

    .
    I'm glad you recognize that the Republican party is part of the left.

    Rush was joking about the cigarette tax yesterday, saying that we should honor the brave smokers because they're giving their lives for the child. As you know the cigarette tax is suppose to be used for the SCHIP program.

    Politicians lie. It's in the job description.

    Personally, I don't think this rises to the level of a lie. As was pointed out, smoking is a choice, and like every other choice, there are costs associated with it. If the costs become too high, then make a new choice.
