Breaking News: Bill Richardson lowers Obama's definition of rich down to $120,000
Rocky Mountain News ^ | 10-31-2008 | Ross Kaminsky

This morning, New Mexico governor Bill Richardson, and enthusiastic supporter of Barack Obama, continued the downward ratchet of the level of income at which Barack Obama intends to confiscate income.

Obama started at $250,000, then said $200,000.

Joe Biden then dropped the bar to $150,000 three days ago.

And now, Bill Richardson is telling us that anyone making over $120,000 will be penalized by an Obama administration.

I want everybody who makes 75,000 to raise their hands.

See, nobody here makes that much, that’s why we’re gonna tax their rich a$$es off.

We need an ad with the variations of this in it.

HOPE IT HAPPENS.

Which is it Obama?

If THAT ONE is elected, we’ll all find out that anything above $20,000.00 is considered “rich”.

If you wonder why the news networks isn’t reporting this, its ‘cause they’re breathlessly quoting Lawrence Eagleburger on Sarah Palin.

Unless you’re living in a hut making $12.00 per year you’re filthy stinking rich in THAT ONES eyes!

To be honest to Barry, this is kind of misleading. In the quote, Richardson is only saying those who earn up to $120,000 are considered “middle class”. And they will get a tax cut. He doesn’t say those earning over $120,000 won’t get one.

I want to win but I don’t like dishonesty. There are better paths to take between now and election day.

Maybe Richardson is trying to heal the rift with the Clintons?

LOL!

You know you have some Obama supporters out there all gung-ho about taking other people’s pie, let’s see how they respond when they realize they are part of the pie being stolen from.

They do like to move the goal posts, don't they?

If this keeps up, Obama's rich aunt Zeituna (the one living in public housing in Boston) will soon see her taxes go up.

If BO wins, we will be slaves of the State no matter how much we make.
