RUSH: Yes, yes, I know Obama's got a dog and pony show going, and we're rolling on it. I wasn't gonna JIP this because I don't know what it is. He's addressing the fiscal cliff but I can tell you it's a campaign appearance, because there's a crowd of people on risers behind him, and they apparently represent every faction of America. Yeah, middle class wallpaper, you have a rabbi, you have a priest, you have a pregnant woman, a single woman, a married woman, you probably got a couple gay people in there, got some blacks. I mean, the whole beautiful, wonderful mosaic is represented there in 15 or 20 people, and they are standing behind Obama and he's talking about the deficit and how we gotta reduce the deficit in a balanced and responsible way, which we know what he means when he says that.
Did he say he wants to raise taxes on people over, what is it, 250? That's breaking news? That's not breaking news. That's been news. He's wanted to do that for four years. Okay. He wants to raise taxes on people who make over $250,000 a year. But everybodys taxes are going to go up if the Bush tax cuts expire, or the Bush tax rates expire.
RUSH: Okay. Here's all you need to know from what Obama said. He said, "I'm open to compromise. I'm open to new ideas, but I refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced." In other words, I'm all for compromising as long as we do it my way. This is a replay. This is exactly the kind of stuff he said after the 2010 elections and after he was elected in 2008. It's the exact stuff he said. (imitating Obama) "I'm open to new ideas. Anybody can come up here, I'll listen to anybody." So Paul Ryan showed up with all kinds of wonderful new ideas on health care, and Obama shut him down with a couple evil stares. He doesn't mean any of this.
gotta reduce the deficit?
He told Letterman that it wasn’t important, didn’t he?
Trillion dollar annual deficits he gave us.
Trillion dollar stimulus slush fund
Obama wants to tax “the rich” although the tax have tax havens. He really means the $100k - $400k group.
Reid wants to increase the debt limit by $2.4 trillion.
That is what people voted for!
He really thinks all Americans are as ignorant as those who reelected him
