    With the tax-hiking proposal President Barack Obama sent to Congress on Thursday, it seems the president is finally heeding a lesson he learned in the first month of his first term. [...]
    Obama [...] sought GOP input from the beginning of the stimulus bill's creation. And he said the Republicans really liked all the nice tax cuts the White House had included in its initial framework.
    "I suppose what I could have done is started off with no tax cuts, knowing that I was going to want some, and then let them take credit for all of them," Obama said. "And maybe that's the lesson I learned."

    Notice the presidents proposal only calls for $400B in spending cuts while calling for $1.6T in tax increases?

    Take Back Our Country? We Built That? HaHaHa! Barack Obama: 332; Mitt Romney: 206. HaHaHa!

    •  I certainly have, (0+ / 0-)

      and I've got to say I think "only" $400 billion in entitlement cuts is way too high -- not just for my liberal tastes, but tactically.  He shouldn't offer these turkeys shit.
