Lets see. Obamacare (passed 100% by their party). Tax increases, only championed by their party.
And yet, I can't recall ever hearing Romney, or his people, making that a big argument. I realize it would have been harder for Romney to make that case because of Romneycare, but the GOP was almost silent on taxes during the campaign.
Listening to bozos like Saxby Chambliss talk, I wonder how many GOP-e Repubs truly understand basic tax policy and economics.
Yep. In retrospect, the Romney campaign strategy was abhorrently bad. They played patty cake from July forward. They left so much on the table because they used a very simplistic message and repeated it over and over.
I think most of us felt it at time throughout. If it wasn’t for the 1st debate, we probably all would have been crying foul by mid October.
Our side needs to be naming each and every tax increase over the past four years every time the interview camera is on. There have been massive increases already, especially on the
rich’. Yet here we are with trillion plus dollar deficit. Tax increases solve nothing, other than sucking money out of the economy, slowing growth and causing money and jobs to find their ways overseas. Yet, our side is sitting here on the defensive and diddling around the edges.
Personally, I don’t give a rat’s a$$ about this fiscal cliff because nothing that comes from it will be much of an improvement, other than kicking our problems out a few months or a couple years. Our people and our government is not remotely serious about fixing the problems Washington has created.
