(AP / WASHINGTON) Democrat Barack Obama says he would delay rescinding President Bush's tax cuts on wealthy Americans if he becomes the next president and the economy is in a recession, suggesting such an increase would further hurt the economy.
Nevertheless, Obama has no plans to extend the Bush tax cuts beyond their expiration date, as Republican John McCain advocates. Instead, Obama wants to push for his promised tax cuts for the middle class, he said in a broadcast interview aired Sunday.
"Even if we're still in a recession, I'm going to go through with my tax cuts," Obama said. "That's my priority."
What about increasing taxes on the wealthy?
"I think we've got to take a look and see where the economy is. I mean, the economy is weak right now," Obama said on "This Week" on ABC. "The news with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, I think, along with the unemployment numbers, indicates that we're fragile."

Aaaaaawwwwhhh...that’s a shame. /s
So, Obama the Magnificent lied to them. What a shock!
STFU 0bama and go back to community organizing.
Yah, delayed until... NEVER! HAH!
Here Obama is again talking out of both sides of his big mouth, flip-flopping all over the place.
Meanwhile, Freepers attack BOR’s interview of Obama. I think they’re fools.
Obama is so easily rolled that I think even BOR was able to roll him with his “you want 50% of my success” line during his interview that was shown tonight.
I nominate your video post of the day. Great job.
“Neighborly?” WTF? LOL.
It isn’t very neighborly to rob one neighbor and give to another now is it?
YEP Obama takes your money and dishes it out to fund legal counsel for the terrorists that would murder our children...
I just know America is not stupid enough to fall for this B.S..... Is this the CHANGE Obama keeps talking about... Taxpayer funding legal defense for Barrack the Bomb thrower?
he’s acknowledging that raising taxes does hurt the economy, so why is he for it in the first place and/or at all? Class warfare, punishment, jealousy?
no matter what, still ain’t voting for the inexperienced FOOL
Obama claims he’s courageously battling hemorhoids?
Photos of Obama field-dressing a botched abortion?
Obama: “I killed the bridge to God”?
That's exactly what I thought. I'm glad you watched that interview and found and isolated that clip, as there's no way I could stomach watching more than 30 seconds of that thing. :O)
Neighborly? WTF? LOL.
Listen closely - he says “neighborlyNESS”
I think that’s community organizerspeakness.
Obama is a socialist, was raised as a communist. What do people expect from him?
