Obama Is Now George H. W. Bush

By Wyatt Earp | June 30, 2009

Remember Barack Obama’s campaign promise to not raise taxes on anyone under making $250,000 a year? Yeah well, apparently the administration isn’t ruling it out.

The best part of that video? The press corps openly laughing at Gibbs’ bullsh*t. This from Hot Air:

It’s a laugh riot, isn’t it? Actually, they might be laughing more at Gibbs’s feeble way of ducking the question than The One’s looming broken promise, but in Gibbs’s defense, what’s he supposed to say? Obama pounded McCain for wanting to pay for health care by taxing benefits, rode into D.C. promising Change, and now he’s going to eat a crap sandwich by reversing himself because it turns out personal charisma doesn’t work on hard economic numbers. So Axelrod and company have to go out and face the firing squad and “explain” via stuttering half-answers why Barry O lied about this last year.

I’m just waiting for Obama to belt out his signature line: “Read my lips: No new taxes.”

    Gee I hope we’ll have enough left to go and buy our new green coolie hats and potato (or is it potatoe?) sack suits to get inline to be green. For our new green homes we should start stocking up on double ply cardboard and tin sheets and go get grandmas washboard out of the attic.
    Maybe go and get that RFID chip implant before its mandatory so I can prove my worth to exist to The One, and he’ll always know where I am. Maybe I’ll start my earthworm farm so I have a cheap source of protein..and its GREEN!!! Yahhhh thats the ticket! With all these savings I can then give even more money to Dear leader..oh he’ll be so proud. C’mon everybody join me..its patriotic!!!

    Wait, what?

    Don’t worry, Obama won’t have to break his promise. Once the hyperinflation kicks in from the over-monetization of our massive (and ever-growing) national debt, even the kid at the drive-through at Burger King will be making more than $250K.

    Hell he’s gonna raise taxes on everything! You are already paying more for fuel. Not in a direct tax but because he won’t produce our own. Then theres Cap and Trade another arround the horn tax on everybody.

    It behoves me to understand why we do not drill for our own energy sorces. Think of all the tax that would deliver to the Fed’s.

    During the primary, my students were debating Hillary versus Obama (my head wanted to explode) and one of my Obama-ites was gushing about how he was going to help the middle class and cut taxes and blah, blah, blah. I looked right at her and said, “Democrats don’t cut taxes.”

    She looked at me like I had a third eye. :)

    I want to know why people believed his BS. I can see wanting to believe that we can have change and all that, people need hope (why they look to a man rather than God is beyond me). However, he’s done nothing in his past record to show that he would even go the route he was spouting.

    I do love the part when the press laughs at Gibbs. :)

    Jon – And apparently, you cannot put your home up for sale until it complies with Obama’s draconian energy standards. Lord, I hope his successor repeals most of this crap.

    Robert – Yeah, it doesn’t seem that Gibbs is the brightest bulb.

    John D – Yeah, and it won’t mean w hole bunch by now.

    Rick007 – Plenty of reserves in ANWR. I wonder why we’re not drilling there? Oh yeah, the frakkin’ hippies.

    RT – People believed his B.S. because they despised George Bush and thought McCain was just like him – which is ludicrous. They also thought that Obama wasn’t the typical politician and wouldn’t resort back to his ultra-liberal views. They were wrong.

    Look on the bright side. By the time the community organizer is done wrecking everything, people will slit their own throats before they re-elect any incumbent Congress critter.

    Plus, Americans will refuse to allow any community organizer to even bring the potato salad to a picnic.

    AJ – Good move, it would probably be filled with weed and PCP.
