80% of Who, Again?

So, His Eminence, Barack Obama today stood before the White House press junkies and made this statement with respect to the current struggle in Congress over whether we should go further in debt to cover our spending, or cut the spending.

Obama made the statement that 80% of Americans were on his side with respect to the debate of what to include in the debt package. That means that 80% are alright with the aspect with raising taxes.

What 80% of Americans are we talking about here; the ones that live in the US or the ones who vote left wing? Obama hasn’t asked me – or anyone I know about whether they think we should have our federal taxes raised.  As a matter of fact, I’m willing to bet that 8 out of 10 people that I asked, "Hey, do you want to have your taxes raised?", they would reply with a hearty "no".

Americans do agree that something has to be done, but it’s pretty arrogant and presumptuous to say that 80% of Americans are behind him when 80% of Americans have never been behind Obama on anything.  I would argue that would also include putting a bullet in Osama Bin Laden’s brain pan.

After Obama’s whiny little spat with Eric Cantor yesterday and him stating that he was going back to the American people, rather than actually asking the American people.  Obama knows full well what Americans would actually say if he actually asked them.

Raising taxes on the rich, even if we took 100% of their earned revenue in taxes would not solve the problem at all; it’s like taking $1 to pay against a $10,000 debt.  But Obama and the Dems are playing the class warfare card, scaring the crap out of those who live on Social Security, and not bothering to look at the federal budget, line by line like he promised during the 2008 campaign, and cutting out the pork.  All the man wants to do is raise taxes, and continue to spend – tax and spend, tax and spend.

Obama absolutely refuses to back away from this point and it’s staggering that a man who purports to have an IQ around 140 can’t actually understand this point.  Obama lacks the cajones to actually go on record as cutting anything because that’s potential lost votes when 2012 starts rolling around.

And yet, Obama has the audacity to say that Congress is playing politics. If Obama was committed to this process, he would have fulfilled his campaign promises of cutting out unnecessary spending and not raising taxes.  He wants to renege on both.

The way out of this situation is what we down on Main Street live with every day: Cut the spending and live within our means.
