The Obama Tax Cuts?

Who do you think of when lower taxes and tax cuts are mentioned?

I would bet the farm on George W. Bush, who unlike is father, decreased federal taxation on the populace and stimulated economic growth for years. While his general economic policies are still being debated today, everyone can agree that his tax policies were beneficial for all Americans, regardless of tax bracket.

However, our ideological counterparts in the Democratic Party are attempting to rephrase/hijack our current "Bush tax cuts" debate into the "Obama tax cuts" debate. I actually heard Speaker Nancy Pelosi refer to the phantom "Obama tax cuts" during a press conference this afternoon. Hypocrisy or what?

For years the Democrat Party has attempted to reject the actual impact of the Bush tax cuts on vital economic growth. But now with the mid-term elections upcoming (and a Congressional vote) they are hijacking the greatest domestic success of President Bush's entire Presidency to fit their own electoral needs.

Absolutely unbelievable!

Who the hell would ever put "Obama" and "tax cuts" into the same sentence when they cancel each other out?
