Washington Examiner ^ | 8/6/12 | Joel Gehrke

And the GOP should counter with cutting the spending, cut the waste, cut the fraud. No more new taxes. No higher taxes.

Actually, Robin Hood attacked the tax collectors and gave the money back to the taxpayers.

Not true, and certainly not as bad as Marxism full speed ahead.

Robin Hood took money from the Government and gave it back to the over-taxed people. He was a tax cutter.

I declare Obama to be King John II, the Liar. We all know that King John was so hated that the tax payers wrote up a document called the Magna Carta. Obama, aka King John II, the Liar is just as hated by the Tax Payers.

Be afraid King John the Liar. Be very afraid of November, fore the Tax Payers are coming.

BTW, that makes A$$elrod Sheriff of Nottingham.

“In order to afford just one $250,000 tax cut for somebody like Mr. Romney, 125 families like yours would have to pay another $2,000 in taxes each and every year,”

No, sir. It costs nothing to take less from someone.

President Obama keeps making this ridiculous argument that tax cuts are actually government spending. Thinking along these lines requires someone to believe that all income is the rightful property of the government. Every “tax cut” which leaves more income in the hands of citizens therefore “costs” the government money. It’s a really bizarre, government-centered worldview, honestly.

If the Poor have no money, how can you rob them?

Oh right, you rob them because you don’t let them steal your money. That’s why Democrats say Tax Rate Cuts “cost” the Government Money.

It’s stolen from them before they steal it in the first place.

I think his math is actually off by $250,000 since “cost” requires an corresponding asset to be depleted, but I give him credit for being able to multiply 2 times 125.

Nice to know that we as a people have been rewarded for the tens of thousands of dollars spent to educate the Choom Master.

Long live Pharaoh Obama, the Prince of multiplication.

Barry stole that from Jimmy carter. Reagan was Robinhood in reverse. How is this guy Obummer, getting away with telling people that Romney is raising the middle-class taxes by 2,000 a year when he takes his big tax cut. This is a LIE, but don’t expect the media to call him on it.

"Dennis Moore"

While without a doubt the funniest member of one of the funniest comedy troupes ever created, John Cleese (Dennis Moore) has always been a left-wing fanatic. Furthermore, I just read Michael Palin's diary from 1969-1979, and he's about as big a leftist as Cleese. I find it amusing that like the Moore sketch, which seems to satirize redistributionists (who do we know that resembles that?), they've had other sketches such as the medieval Marxists in the Holy Grail where socialism is satirized. I was disturbed by Palin's diary by the number of slams he directed at America. Cleese is a big fan of Keith Olbermann. I saw a clip on the internet of three of Python's appearing on Olbermann's program.
