    Actually, I think you will give the same credit conservatives gave GHWB in 92 for compromising with the dems on tax hikes. GHWB was attacked just as much from the Right than he was from the Left in '92, and most of it was undeserved.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    The Bush tax cuts expired by the law Bush signed. They're over. Kaput. Done. Fork-time™.

    For the next couple of years, welcome to the Obama tax rates lowered by the law he will sign very soon now.

    Now, repeat after me, thank you, President Obama.

    There, that wasn't too hard.

    Now go spend your Obama-windfall™.

    hopefully, Obama will use the deficit commission proposal as the mechanism to revise tax deductions
    government can increase tax revenue by (a)increasing rates and/or (b) eliminating deductions
    looks like plan b is now in order

    I didn't vote for him because he caved on taxes and guns. And the dems called him weak for compromising. That's why W didn't compromise much with the dems. HE saw what happened to his dad. And I am sure we will claim Obama is weak in 2012. Its how the game is played.

    Want to know what surprised me about all this? That it was the Republicans compromising, and the liberal Democrats being ideological douche bags this time. LOL.

    Re: Liberals giving up tax fight

    So not raising taxes is now called a "tax cut". LOL

    Well, I guess for Democrats, it is.

    Thanks for "cutting" my taxes by asking me to pay EXACTLY the same rates I've been paying for years.

    I guess.

    Why should he get my thanks? He GAVE UP on taxes. HAd Obama kept his filibuster-proof majority, this never would have happened. Conservatives(at least on taxes because Lieberman is hardly a conservative) were the ones that pressured his ass to the ground.

    Yup, Chappy's right, he gets no "undeserved" credit from me.

    So, this thread is: Liberals jumping intellectual and ideogical hoops to excuse Obama's decision to support the Bush Tax cuts while trying to laugh at conservatives for winning.

    P.S. - sorry Chappy. Even so, conservatives won't give Obama any credit with regards to the tax cuts come re-election time.

    Tell a lie often enough and loud enough and it becomes truth.


    THIS IS NOT A TAX CUT! It simply is maintaining the current tax rates.
    The United States is entirely [354 U.S. 1, 6] a creature of the Constitution. 3 Its power and authority have no other source. It can only act in accordance with all the limitations imposed by the Constitution. -REID v. COVERT, 354 U.S. 1 (1957)

    Choosing between PUBS and DIMS is like choosing between warm crap and warmer crap; they both stink. Shooterman 1935-

    God made Texas almost perfect, but gave us 'skeeters, 'gators, rattlesnakes, and LIB DIMS and PUBS ( still rattlesnakes ) so we wouldn't think we were already in Heaven. Shooterman 1935-

    The economy is experiencing a crack up boom. That's like a woman flying upside down in a plane and attempting to land; big crack up, go boom.
