    Obama makes morons look smart. From Redstate.com:

    Posted by Erick Erickson (Profile)

    Sunday, April 26th at 9:26PM EDT

    "Ladies and gentlemen, when Barack Obama succeeds, the country fails. Look no further than this interview with Charlie Gibson:

    GIBSON: All right. You have, however, said you would favor an increase in the capital gains tax. As a matter of fact, you said on CNBC, and I quote, “I certainly would not go above what existed under Bill Clinton,” which was 28 percent. It’s now 15 percent. That’s almost a doubling, if you went to 28 percent.

    But actually, Bill Clinton, in 1997, signed legislation that dropped the capital gains tax to 20 percent.

    OBAMA: Right.

    GIBSON: And George Bush has taken it down to 15 percent.

    OBAMA: Right.

    GIBSON: And in each instance, when the rate dropped, revenues from the tax increased; the government took in more money. And in the 1980s, when the tax was increased to 28 percent, the revenues went down.

    So why raise it at all, especially given the fact that 100 million people in this country own stock and would be affected?

    OBAMA: Well, Charlie, what I’ve said is that I would look at raising the capital gains tax for purposes of fairness.

    There you have it. Barack Obama is not interested in raising revenue to fund the government. He is interested in to keep people from making money — because it is fair.

    What’s worse is Obama goes on to prove how terrifically academic he is and has no grounding in real world economics. Gibson challenges him again:

    GIBSON: But history shows that when you drop the capital gains tax, the revenues go up.

    OBAMA: Well, that might happen, or it might not. It depends on what’s happening on Wall Street and how business is going.

    Put it to you this way Barry: business won’t be going on at all on Wall Street if you jack up the capital gains tax.

    The only refreshing thing in this whole exchange is Obama admitting he is not using tax policy to raise revenue, but rather to distribute fairness across socio-economically divergent pools of people.

    Other than that, though, it is scary that the guy just over half the nation thought was qualified to be President has zero sense when it comes to fostering a healthy economy."

    The half of the voters who elected this guy DO NOT THINK about these kinds of policy issues.

    They just know they didn't like Bush, and wanted to flip the "toggle switch" the opposite direction.

    It's the way American politics has always worked.

    Nip, Until you voted for the BO. Most of the folks who voted for BO didn't think at all. Too much mush and not enough common sense in those craniums. Yours too. You'll see, and pretty darned soon.

    Presidential idiot? We all know that to be a fact. But how about voter idiots?

    Nippy,,,Oh what a web we weave, when we practice to decieve!!!! Remember that..

    To choose ac Insane Osama to be your leader and Commander and Chief of the greatest military on this planet, over John McCain was a real idiot trip for all who voted for this Muslim Commie. The choice for president should have been a no brainer. Anyone who couldn't see through what the liberals were up to were complete dumbasses! He didn't even have a record to run on!

    I know the founding fathers didn't ever consider that the American people would ever be so ignorant that they would elect someone like Osama that would be so against freedom and liberty that the USA could go down the tubes!!

    I suppose people like Nippy would vote for Osama Bin Laden if he were running for president! After all, I don't see a nickels worth of difference between the two....

    Another couple of months there won't be anyone but Nippy that would say: (I VOTED FOR HIM!!!!) DUMBASSES!

    Grizzly Adams,,,,My opinion doesn't count for much,,,,but there it is!!

    8 years ago, if someone would have told me a majority of people will vote for a man named Barrack Hussien Obama for president, I would have told them they're crazy. A man who will not furnish an authentic original birth certificate. A man with muslim ties, attending an anti american church, hanging around known past terrorists, and proclaiming undoubted anti capitalistic views. We Americans have a short memory. Blame Bush nipper. Blame Bush despite the fact that the congress creates and passes laws, not the President. 6 of those years were under the Republicans and 2 under the Democrats. Remember Pelosi's promise to take action in the first 100 days after elected. What happened? Nothing.
    Now they view themselves as untouchable. Believe me, the worst is yet to come.

    We need a new web site "No Incumbants.com"

    I see the farrrrrrrrrrrr left media today is still saying that the majority of the country approves of what he's doing and he's making progress.

    Since when is 48% a majority?

    I did notice one small article, buried on page seven, that said that quite a few of his supporters were frustrated. Which is true...approve, frustrated?

    He's not an idiot.
    He may be a liar and a socialist but his approval ratings are up and he did win an election.

    Now he and I differ on about 99.9% of his ideas but to call him an idiot well that makes the name caller not realize what we are dealing with. He has the major media in his pocket and a majority of voters so we may not like it but hang on for the ride.

    basically: we are screwed as a country............

    Interesting that the only defense of Obama's policies are to immediately wave the Bush flag. Just once I would like some one to tell us what a great job Obama is doing.

    BTW, if Al Gore or John Kerry had been elected we would have two more Ginsbergs on the Supreme Court. If the only positive GWB EVER did was appoint those two justices he very well may have saved this Country until the white, working taxpayers that voted for Obama finally catch on to the fraud that he is.
