And to think that just this morning, I was arguing with someone over whether or not Obama had a tendency to cave to the Right...
Well, the Right got their tax cuts extended. All of them. And this after two years of hammering Obama about the DEFICIT! Un-be-fucking-lievable.
And the best line out of the whole debate?
After having to jetison the Making Work Pay tax credit (for individuals making under $75K and couples making less than $150K) which was part of last year's (Obama's) stimulus bill, the biggest SOB in the Senate, Orin Hatch had the nerve to complain that the Make Work Pay tax credit in effect exempted too many middle-income Americans from having to pay income taxes.
Give that one to you RW friends to stick in their pipe and smoke the next time they tell you the Republicans aren't just out for "tax cuts for millionares," of for that matter that Obama doesn't cave to the Right:
The top 2% got their tax break, but the rest of us lost a big one of ours.
Why the fuck do we even need this guy? (Obama.) What has he done that the GUYS WHO LOST (when he came into office) wouldn't have done? Seriously. Fifty-nine votes in the Senate and they give the tax cut to the top 2% and screw over everyone else.
That's actually WORSE than Bush. At least Bush gave me SOMETHING.
The only cut I'm getting? My social security tax. AT A TIME WHEN WE'RE CONSTANTLY HEARING THAT SOCIAL SECURITY IS GOING BROKE! (And from the Republicans, no less! How does this shit even HAPPEN?!)
He's actually worse than Bush. Relative to what he was given and what he had to work with, politically? Obama is worse than Bush.
The only thing worse are these idiots who are STILL going around trying to call him a socialist.
This is not what I voted for. Not at all. Lemme know who the 2012 primary challenger is, ASAP. Because unless Sarah Palin is leading the other ticket, and it's someone who can't beat her?
They've already got my vote.
And BTW, I'm very sorry to hear about the passing of Elizabeth Edwards. It's been a rough week, first Ron Santo, and now Edwards. My thoughts are with both of their families. You have my sincerest condolences.
