President Obama fired his most recent salvo in his ever-evolving class warfare operation today. This time, the president derided GOP lawmakers for offering tax breaks to the eeeeevil rich and their eeeeevil corporate jets. Pretty despicable of the Republicans, right?
Thank God we didn’t have people like these in power in 2009, right? I mean, the Democrats would never suggest such a thing, right?
During President Obama’s press conference today, he scolded Republicans for demanding tax cuts for corporate jets. From the Associated Press in 2009:
Just a few months after lawmakers scolded auto executives for flying to Washington in private jets, Congress approved a tax break in the stimulus package to help businesses buy their own planes. The incentive – first used to help plane makers recover from the 2001 terror attacks – sharply reduces the up front tax bill for companies who buy assets like business planes.
Revisionist history: the other white meat.
A couple of second-half goals gave the U.S. a 2-0 win over North Korea and a strong start to their Women’s World Cup run. The eighth-ranked North Koreans have the youngest team in the tournament with an average age of 20.
After the match, North Korea manager Kwang Min Kim shocked the congregated press by revealing that his side isn’t just the youngest team, but it is also the only team in the tournament that’s been struck by lightning.
North Korea claimed five of their players were struck by lightning. What are the odds?
