Not One Dime But Many? President Obama Loses His Religion on the $250,000 Line of Demarcation

Remember this explicit statement that President Obama made almost a year ago?

if your family earns less than $250,000 a year, you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime.


– President Obama says he is now “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making under $250,000 a year to help cut budget deficits, signaling a possible retreat from a campaign pledge.
In an interview with Bloomberg BusinessWeek on newsstands tomorrow, Obama said a presidential budget commission needs to look at all options for deficit reduction – including tax increases and cuts in spending on such programs as Social Security and Medicare.
“The whole point of it is to make sure that all ideas are on the table,” Obama said. “So what I want to do is to be completely agnostic, in terms of solutions.”

(“Agnostic”? Is that a new euphemism for wavering on an iron clad promise?)
Let’s see, he wants to give us lots of stuff, like universal healthcare and stimulus money and bailouts and unemployment benefits. But then, he’s going to have to take more and more money from us to pay for all of this stuff. Wouldn’t it be more straight forward to just not give us stuff and then allow us to keep more of our money?
Howie Carr made a good point this afternoon: will the press pounce on President Obama the way they pounced on President George “Read my lips” Bush?
In the meantime, on the subject of dimes, one of Howie’s callers reminded him of this scene from “Blazing Saddles”. [Warning: language.] Indeed, it looks like some of us are going to have to “go back and get a s******d of dimes”.

Obama is such a disaster on so many levels. It’s actually mindboggling that this nation elected such a disingenuous teleprompting lightweight.

If he starts pushing to raise taxes on the middle class,he will think the town hall meetings anger was a walk in the park.
This man is so ignorant of what regular people think it is mind boggling.He got over with his flim flam act largely because of anger at Bush.
Go ahead Barry,try it-you will seal the doom of the leftists running things now.November will be even worse for them than it is looking to be now.
Watch Cicilline pull an act like getting re-elected and then try to do away with the homestead exemption or at least the auto tax exemption.He is such a lying little weasel with his breathy sibilant rapid fire bullcrap.He’s like a miniature Obama,except he doesn’t use a teleprompter ALL the time.
When will Obama learn to pronounce “corpsman”?It was bizarre.Kinda like when he says “Pockeestan”.

I agree Joe. Obama must be an idiot, no IQ to pronounce those words that way. Heck, when Bush pronounced “nucular”, the left had a field day with that. Even though it was simply an accent. It was the same exact way that LBJ (another Texan) pronounced the word. But the left can conveniently skip over that little fact.
