    That is by far actually dumber then suggesting he's a muslim from Kenya because that statement is so off the charts idiotic as it is untrue.

    Class Warfare?

    Just because he wants to raise taxes on people that are already rich... and not even by a massively substancial amount...

    Yep Class Warfare at it's worse...

    There must be a great deal of buyer's remorse by those who actually voted for this guy.
    I absolutely think it's deliberate. Turn this country as far toward a socialistic state as possible before time runs out. Why do you think he pushed so hard for a healthcare bill that was so half-baked and incomplete?

    Create as many co-dependent Americans as possible, so they'll be afraid to vote for anyone who demands they work and take care of themselves.

    It is class warfare. One of the great ideas in this country is equal treatment under the law. A progressive income tax totally goes against this ideal.

    Those waiters working in high-end restaurants make a pretty good salary. I guess their work is very valuable.

    The US just needs to stick to whatever brings the greatest profit. Period.

    I realize the truth hurts.

    Of course, we should indeed have a flat tax across the board and do away with loopholes and shelters.

    We "fund our education" more than any country in the world. It doesn't do a damn bit of good if daddy's gone, and momma doesn't give a crap. There's more than enough money. Kids just aren't pushed to succeed in the vast majority of households in this country.

    With this I agree 100%, but money that is already available needs to be moved more into those areas. It does a child no good to have an active parent to help with their chemistry and biology homework if the parent went to business school and has no idea what endonucleases are.

    truer words were never spoken. As a former educator, I have seen this first hand

    how utterly silly and ignorant can a person be. your comment is ridiculous. lol.....obama doesn't want to turn the economy around. yeah, he loves that his popularity is declining, and he just hates america so much that he doesn't want to see us recover.
