Obama to Al Sharpton: ‘My Religious Faith’ Makes Me Believe Republicans Will Agree to Raise Taxes
The Blaze ^ | 11/21/2011 | Tiffany Gabbay

Posted on 11/21/2011 7:15:02 PM PST by Just4Him

According to President Obama, his “religious faith” is what helps him continue to believe that Republican lawmakers will eventually raise taxes on wealthy Americans, who, Obama was sure to point out again, need to “pay their fair share.”

Speaking to Reverend Al Sharpton following the Super Committee’s monumental failure Monday, the president stated his disappointment in Republicans for being “short-sighted” in not offering any serious revenues.

“So the position they’re taking is short-sighted, but it must be my religious fait, reverend, cause hope springs eternal…”

Would that be the same faith that he used when he stuck with “Rev” Wright cursing America and celebrating 9/11?

Thought so ....

Obama should take this to the people... Run on increasing taxes.

The GOP should not make it easy on him.

"...eventually raise taxes on wealthy Americans."

I wonder which "religious faith" the pig is talking about? His "religion" must not observe the "Thou shalt not covet" commandment.

The headline gives credit to my “Obama is President because he made a deal with the devil” theory.

Christianity doesn’t ‘make’ believers, it’s a Faith of will. Islam on the other hand...

It’s not his religious faith. Democrats believe in confiscating other people’s money so they can spend it to get re-elected.

Is this the same religious faith that causes Obama to endorse a woman’s right to have her unborn child sucked from her womb at any time for any reason? The same faith that believes a child, born alive from a botched abortion, should die without treatment?
Satan believes in God too... and he trembles.

Yes we know Obama:

c) Eradicating the concentration of wealth:

The third object of the distribution of wealth, which Islam considers to be very important, is that wealth, instead of becoming concentrated in a few hands, should be allowed to circulate in the society as widely as possible, so that the distinction between the rich and the poor should be narrowed down as far as is natural and practicable. The attitude of Islam in this respect is that it has not permitted any individual or group to have a monopoly over the primary sources of wealth, but has given every member of the society an equal right to derive benefit from them. Mines, forests, un-owned barren lands, hunting and fishing, wild grass, rivers, seas, spoils of war etc., all these are primary sources of wealth. With respect to them, every individual is entitled to make use of them according to his abilities and his labor without anyone being allowed to have any kind of monopoly over them.
“So that this wealth should not become confined only to the rich amongst you”. (59:7)
Beyond this, wherever human intervention is needed for the production of wealth and a man produces some kind of wealth by deploying his resources and labor, Islam gives due consideration to the resources and labor thus deployed, and recognizes man’s right of property in the wealth produced. Every one shall get his share according to the labor and resources invested by him. Says the Holy Quran:
“We have distributed their livelihood among them in worldly life, and have raised some above others in the matter of social degrees, so that some of them may utilize the services of others in their work”. (43:32)
But, in spite of this difference among social degrees or ranks certain injunctions have been laid down in order to keep this distinction within such limits as are necessary for the establishment of a practicable system of economy, so that wealth should not become concentrated in a few hands.

Of these three objects of the distribution of wealth, the first distinguishes Islamic economy from Socialism, the third from Capitalism, and the second from both at the same time.

“Obama should take this to the people... Run on increasing taxes. The GOP should not make it easy on him.”

Now I know why he didn’t answer any questions at his little presser late this afternoon on the super committee failure - Pat Toomey just talked about what happened today, on Greta earlier - he said the Dems absolutely refused to discuss ANY cuts without...(wait for it)...a $1 TRILLION TAX INCREASE.

The Repubs had BEST start running TV and radio ads telling the public the truth about this crap, to combat BHO’s campaign propaganda about the evil “do nothing” Congress (i.e. Repubs) who prevented him from doing wonderful things for our country.

Hey, media hacks. How about asking these question of Mr. Obama?

1. Mr. President: Why do you think a tax increase won’t hurt the economy now, when only about a year ago you agreed not to push for raising the rate as it would hurt the economy?

2. Mr. Obama, you had a supermajority in the Senate and a heavy majority in House for two years. Why didn’t you terminate the Bush tax cuts or pass new taxes when you had the votes to do so?

3. Mr. President, according the CBO, your proposed tax increase will raise $9 billion annually. Your proposed Jobs Bill will cost $447 billion. Can you please explain how the new revenue will “pay for the Jobs Bill” as you have stated numerous times?

Al may accidentally be right about this.

Republicans have sin natures just like anyone else. Ulterior motives. Some don’t care they’re screwing the country if they think they’ll stay in office. Some can totally act like the biggest liberals do, easily.

Afraid Al could be right.

“The attitude of Islam in this respect is that it has not permitted any individual or group to have a monopoly over the primary sources of wealth, but has given every member of the society an equal right to derive benefit from them.”

How hypocritical, like the rest of this “religion”. Then how is it that the Saudi princes and Sheiks have untold wealth (from the oil we originally drilled for them) while so many others live in abject poverty?
