Fighting Spin With the Truth

"Is the President more interested in punishing "the rich" or in actually solving the problem?" Of course he is! That's what he said during the last debate with Hilary back in 2008.

And MG, to think that he constantly gets away with that BS rhetoric. I'd like obama to explain just WHY he considers it "fair" to increase the tax rate on RICH people (by the way, my daughter and son-in-law live in NYC and together they earn just around that $250,000 mark and THEY ARE NOT RICH BY ANY STRETCH especially when they are paying $3500 a month for a 900 sq ft apt).

Here's an idea.......why doesn't obama and his OBESE wife send to the IRS ALL of their income from salary and royalties and THAT WOULD ONLY BE FAIR!

Afterall, he made royalty monies and still is making that royalty from his BOGUS bio "dreams from my father" AND THAT IS WHAT IS CALLED CAPITALISM AND FREE ENTERPRISE.

To that end, here are...
