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.”
