Economic Patriots [team stats] arise! Youve got nothing to lose but your money!
The Obama campaign is printing up millions of copies of his new 20-page plan entitled Economic Patriotism. Its been a theme of the presidents campaign since Joe Biden said in 2008 that paying higher taxes is patriotic.
Now Barack Obama has adopted it as his closing argument in a close presidential race.
We should ask the wealthiest Americans to pay a little more, a modest amount, Obama said recently. There are a lot of well-to-do Americans, patriotic Americans, who understand this and are willing to do the right thing.
(Lets not quibble as to whether raising income tax rates by more than 10 percent not to mention capital gains taxes jumping from 15 percent to around 23 percent is a little.)
In Obamas America there are two groups: The patriotic folks who support higher taxes. And those who dont. Thats the unpatriotic group. They dont love their country as much as people who support tax hikes.
If that sounds uncomfortably divisive for a uniter like Obama, you havent been paying attention. Right now hes running ads in Ohio that conclude like this: Mitt Romney: Hes Not One Of Us. As the Washington Posts Karen Tumulty notes, the phrase echoes a slogan that has been used as a racial code over at least the past half-century.
Which is weird, because Obama supporters are simultaneously insisting that the real bigots are Americans voting against Barack.
On the right, its their hatred, hatred of Obama, Chris Matthews said on MSNBC after the second debate.
Why, what other possible...

LOL! from the pResident that's not a citizen.
And we’re just learning of this “plan” now?
Garbage in, garbage out.
Does Barry need more spending money for a big blowout vacation he's planning?
And they are free to do so voluntarily - however most spend as much on tax lawyers to ensure they pay as little as legally possible.
Boy you said it Hilary. I think we shouldn't have the Income Tax. So that means I must be the highest form of Patriot!
GOD he's got to go.
I was wondering if a major publication made a “13 yr old girl texting” mistake.
By that logic if you don’t pay any taxes, you are no patriot either.
The only thing missing is an “OMG!”.
The Serial Liar and Traitor says I’m not a patriot???? F’ him . . . he wouldn’t know what a patriot was if it bit him on the a$$.
What does Obama know about being a Patriot?
Did he serve in the military?
Does he love America?
Has he stood up to anyone who brought slight against America?
During his lifetime has he been surrounded by others who love America?

A Patriot? Obama doesn’t know the meaning of the word.
Pretty funny that 0bama’s support is hovering right at 47%...
I imagined Romney responding to 0bama in the debate:
“Paw kee stawn”? What is up with that? Where does that come from? No American says it that way, Mr President.
It wasn’t too long ago that Zero was claiming the deficits of GW Bush were un-patriotic.
To prevent duplication, please don’t alter the published headline. Thanks.
“A Patriot? Obama doesnt know the meaning of the word”.
To him it means “Marxist”.
