Skip to comments.Obama: Cuts are GOP's 'holy grail'
Posted on 12/07/2010 12:29:57 PM PST by ColdOne
Giving tax cuts to the rich is Republicans holy grail, President Obama said Tuesday.
Let me say that on the Republican side, this is their holy grail, these tax cuts for the wealthy, Obama told reporters. It seems to be their central economic doctrine.

Hussein is a no class punk.
There are no tax cuts.....................
Wow - Pick a fight with the opposition who in about 1 month will own the House and increase numbers in the Senate to fillibuster proof margins.
Smart man that Zero.
The whole point when the GOP compromises is so the other side will say nice things about them.
How did that work out??
There. Fixed it.
He’s going to surely catch hell for this in DUmmie land...!
If only that were true... the Repubs went along on a stimulus package.. and increased the unemployment insurance for 2 million for over a year. And a bunch of goodies showered on the lower end of the economic spectrum. Are we Sweden yet?
Did he say that as he prepared to board Air Force One to Hawaii to spend 2 weeks at his $25K a week rental house?
Look at the bright side, Barry- you’ll save enough on taxes to buy Moochelle some new earrings. Or maybe a nose ring.
It’s not the government’s job to decide who has too much, and who has too little money. That said, if you live in a big American city, own a house or aspire to, have children and want to educate them, 250K a year does not make you rich.
what tax cuts is he talking about? no ones taxes are going down.
Ed Morrissy is making the “one termer” point. That the Left is apocolyptic over this deal, his base, and asks how many you know who regret voting for Obama? Plenty. How many voters have been won over by Obama? Zero. This equals one term.
Obama now has to work with Republicans, he needs to compromise, he needs to seek bipartisan solutions. And he plans to go about this, by childishly insulting the very people upon whom he is now dependent.
Idiot. Politics is not the right field for this bozo: he doesn't work and play well with others.
There are - the wrong ones. 2% decrease on the payroll tax... for the worker, the the employer. And other nonsense "tax cuts" for the lower classes.
Unfortunately, given what he has done with goosing the national debt and locking up our energy resources, I don't think we are going to see much visibility from tax cuts in the normal 18 months or so it usually takes. Plus, this really isn't a tax cut-- it is a deferral of a tax increase.
Smart man that Zero.
Already he's playing the Blame Game, assuming the media carries every pail of water up that loooong hill.
If they don't, he's even more burnt toast than he (and the Dem Party) already is. This is why the DC Dems are revolting.
What tax cuts? Did someone get a tax cut?
I thought I heard many employers won’t have to suffer a huge tax increase next month. But there are no tax cuts.
Obama-butt, you’re right.
Our grail is indeed holy.
Your grail is full of holes.
And it stinks, too.
Stinks of Bull Obama.
I think one of the only ways we can illustrate to the American public that there were not tax cuts is to have someone as hated as Sarah Palin (by the left) make a press release or FB or something, that gets Maddow/Olberman and Anderson and the rest of the looney left to come out to attack her. By attacking what she is saying, they will have to at least acknowledge what she has said. AKA. THERE WERE NO TAX CUTS BY OBAMA or DEM CONGRESS!
First two years, blame it on Bush. Last two years, blame it on Republicans. He’s a child who cries and points.
I don’t think we are going to see much visibility from tax cuts in the normal 18 months or so it usually takes. Plus, this really isn’t a tax cut— it is a deferral of a tax increase.___________________________________________________
You are absolutely right. Extending the tax cuts will guarantee the unemployment numbers will drag on at 9%+ which will help Obama in 2012 with the permanently underclass and unemployed wanting his government handouts, provided by US tax payers with their own money.
THAT’S how much HE knows!!
And our theory, unlike yours, is borne out by history.
2. Get clobbered for it in an election.
3. Act like a bigger asshat.
I just figured out his secret strategy.
The ‘doctrine’ is letting people keep what they earn, without artificial limitations. Remember when Obama said he’d decided that those working in financial institutions had made enough money? Has he decided How much is “enough”, and will his cap apply to himself, entertainers and athletes?
OOPS.. Extending the tax cuts will guarantee the unemployment .....
I goofed. I meant “extending the unemployment benefits will guarantee longer term unemployment, helpful to Obama in ‘12.
It’s not a tax cut for anyone. It’s a vote AGAINST a tax INCREASE. If the republicans aren’t screaming this to high Heaven for the next two years they’re dumber than I thought.
“On second thoughts, let us not go to Obamalot. ‘Tis a silly place.”
True. One-term. The Dem Party is going to take an ever LARGER hit during the next House/Senate election in 2006.
Hussein is obviously engaging in a political Scorched Earthed agenda and pushing ALL his chips into the pot now.
Question: Can we withstand the damage his loony fascist Executive Orders, Czars, and RAT judges will cause during the next two years?
Notice he lies and says “wealthy” instead of the more accurate “high income earners”.
The wealthy billionaires could have 100% of their INCOME taxed next year and still be billionaires.
I guess he can’t help but lie... it’s his and his “father’s” native language (John 8:44).
That press conference really was fun to watch. Obama was about so close to loosing it. He has to lie so blatently to get thru it. Great fun!
Calling this “tax cuts” is EVERYWHERE, and the republicans are failing to counter 24/7 media perpetuating this lie. It’s so prevelant that I have goofed up myself. I do wish we had a better war room countering this propaganda within minutes of it hitting the air.
Since the media is left wing the only war room we could have is facebook and twitter.
Democraps and repunklicans are one in the same! There really is no difference! Don’t let um fool ya!
Because Obama will not change. He will not learn from his mistakes. He will not grow and mature from on-the-job experience. In fact, over time, Obama will likely become a more ferocious version of who he is today.
Why? Because this is a damaged person. Obama’s fate was sealed years ago growing up in his strange and poisonous family. Later on, his empty vessel was filled with the hateful bile of men like Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers.
Obama will not evolve; he will not rise to the occasion; he will not become the man he was meant to be. This is for one reason and one reason alone:
He is not capable of it.
No kidding. see my tag line
His tongue starts wagging and his brain tries desperately to catch up to no avail.
I really don’t get this anymore. Paying X% of your income that gets taken and pieced out in tidbits for anything other than defense is merely arguing about who eats first...and best. If it were anything else, 100% of lottery takings WOULD actually go to education.
How right you are. Obama is a real sad ass loser. His delusions of grandeur are only surpassed by the falsehoods he believes he has sold to the American public. Obozo is most likely on more shrink pills then any real combat vet ever was. The clown looks and acts like no election ever happened, and; Pelosi and Reed must be on his drugs, too. They look like the prozac kids.
If they were smart (and there is very little evidence that they are) the pubbie leadership would take ownership of that quote and say "Yes! Keeping taxes low on the most productive part of our small business economy is extremely important to the prosperity of this entire nation."
And they'd keep saying it loudly over and over until after 2012.
My holy grail is a Flat Tax of under 10%

I might believe the Left if people like 0bama, Kerry, Schumer, Pelosi, Kennedy, Rockefeller, Winfrey, Gates, Buffet, Soros, Gore, Clinton(s), Bloomberg, McCain, Huffington and T Turner GAVE THEIR WEALTH AND EXTRA HOUSES AWAY.
For “the children.” Not their income. Their accumulated wealth.
He is already cathcing hell from the DUmmies. Just in case you don’t read the DUmmie FUnnies, check out the DU links on the FR thread below.
Please define wealthy. A real answer please... don't deflect.
