    Dumbass is not something that really applies to anyone who makes it to the oval office. Even the intellectually least gifted (like Biden for example) Presidents or VPs are well above the average American's intelligence. The real dumasses are those who voted for Obama thinking he was some sort of messiah or that he, by soaking the rich and the winners was going to actually improve the lot of the losers

    I believe tax increases are a reality regardless of Obama's policies. In the absence of any bailouts, the federal government would be responsible for trillions upon trillions of dollars due to FDIC liabilities and unemployment/state liabilities.

    As has been said by a few, entitlement reform is going to be a necessary aspect of any fiscal consolidation plan.[/QUOTE]

    Please show me $6 trillion in spending in 2009.
    Oops.... sorry that was a typo. I meant to say 4 trillion, as in this years budget.

    Are you saying the dumb asses that called Bush names for 8 years are 8 times worse than the dumb asses calling Barry names are now?

    How refreshing!

    Uh. That's not accounting. That's basic monetary policy.

    The real problem with a VAT tax is that there's little to stop Congress from raising the rates. And unlike income tax hikes, VAT hikes will hit every level.

    Agreed! If Onumbnuts and his Democrat scum pass this, there will be hell to pay come November! And BTW, I would not mince words if a Republican proposed this assinine idea!

    I would say the Shrub was definitely a dumbass. I think we all understand how he made it to the Presidency and it wasn't because of his intellect.

    Re: Obama suggests value-added tax may be an option

    ah, vat, value added tax

    now, vat is a concept DEAR to obama's ambitious, grasping heart

    vat is radical, unamerican

    obama reveals his frenchified dispositions

    that he proposes this fundamental ways and means via TRIAL BALLOON shows his core-level deceitfulness

    hardly the bold, visionary leadership anyone can believe in

    hardly the steady hand, staying the course, of, oh, say, a ronald reagan

    obama ducks and weaves his way to legislation, he deems and crams

    where's the public option?

    that his own PRESS SECTY on the very day blatantly contradicts this economic centerpiece, requisite to the obama regimen, shows, once more, as always, the "workings" of the most incompetent administration in modern american history

    RealClearPolitics - Video - White House: Obama Is Not Considering Value-Added Tax

    remember when he trotted out summers and geithner, top econ adviser and treas secty, on the sunday talks to suggest raising taxes specifically, namely, on the middle class?

    Geithner Won?t Rule Out New Taxes for Middle Class - George's Bottom Line

    only to have to take it all back the next day?

    CNSNews.com - Obama Still ?Committed? to No Tax Increase on Those Making Less Than $250,000, Says White House

    well, there ya go

    it is what it is

    extremist, underhanded, incompetent

    Says who? Oh, you just made that up. Got it.

    So why do so many cons want it? That's right, because it decreases the burden on the rich just like all the other consumption type taxes.

    He hasn't proposed it. Talk about deceitfulness.

    hardly the steady hand, staying the course, of, oh, say, a ronald reagan
    Yeah, like the way Reagan claimed big gubment is bad and then promptly expanded it or maybe the way he promised to lower taxes and then raised them.

    obama ducks and weaves his way to legislation, he deems and crams
    Presidents don't cram, Congress might, but you're not interested in any truth.
    where's the public option?
    dead on the roadside with a conservative knife in it's back.

    that his own PRESS SECTY on the very day blatantly contradicts this economic centerpiece, requisite to the obama regimen, shows, once more, as always, the "workings" of the most incompetent administration in modern american history
    You can keep saying it in the hopes people will forget the Shrubs admin, but we won't.

    well, there ya go

    it is what it is

    extremist, underhanded, incompetent
    Yup, your entire post sure is.
