Video: Stephanopolus Grills -- No, Really -- Obama

No questions about his pecs.

He grills Obama on raising taxes. Obama wants to call individual mandate fines "non-taxes." Because they're just fines. Fines which are paid to the government as part of its revenue collections. That kind of fines.

Obama won't stop arguing that that's not a raised tax. Just new, additional money you in the middle (or lower) class have to pay to the government, but not a tax. Because it's "fair" and "common sense."

He also asks Obama multiple times if he will sign into law the coming (hopefully) ACORN defunding ban.

Obama votes present, multiple times, refusing to answer.

Thanks to AHFF Geoff.

Obama: ACORN is Something I Haven't Followed Closely: You lie.


I Gotta Tell Ya... It never even occurred to me that the individual-mandate "fine" was really just a tax on the middle class, thus breaking Obama's much-repeated pledge.

Bad blogger, Ace. Bad blogger.

It's embarrassing to be reduced to learning something from the Leftwing Media.


Shorter Soundbite: DrewM. sends this vid for those who don't have time for 17 minutes of Captain Wonderful bloviating, but gets right to the dictionary definition of "tax."

Which Obama calls "stretching."
