Mr Buchanan has written volumes about how neocon GWB was a total disaster as president. On this I could not agree more. However, Pat remains in favor of keeping the Bush tax cuts, which were supposed to expire two years ago. Why are the Republicans continuing to support another extension of Bush's disastrous cuts when they never worked in the first pace? It would be wise for the R's to go along with Obama on this so that they can disassociate themselves more from the Bush name. Warren Buffett continues to say that higher taxes will not hurt investment.
