    Now, President Obama should give a press conference, invite Fox, take a question on this, and say, "You're right, my taxes are far too low.  Somebody in my position should have his income subject to significantly higher tax rates.  I've been saying that for years."

    Then give his pitch for a higher top income tax bracket.

    This is a golden opportunity.

      from paying more if he wants to...that is the standard conservative answer. They will say if he believes in higher taxes he should voluntarily pay more. Since he did not, he really doesn't believe in higher taxes. i've heard Michael Medved, a failed movie critic, now a right winger, say it many times.

    •  And bring release forms that these jerks could (0+ / 0-)

      sign to ask the govt to release their tax returns.  I'd be especially curious if any of them made anything close to the charitable gifts by the Obamas.
