Breaking Broken: Obama, For The Approximately 10 Millionth Time, To Call For Tax Hikes

Failed President Obama is about to give a speech (well, that's a new tactic for him) arguing for higher taxes on people.

A preview of the upcoming repeat.

President Barack Obama will call Monday for a one-year extension of the Bush-era tax cuts that chiefly benefit families making less than $250,000 annually, setting an election-year collision course with Republicans that seems designed to amplify his core campaign message. An Obama aide confirmed the news, which was first reported in The New York Times.

Obama's proposal will put him at odds with Republicans, including Mitt Romney, who have called for extending all the tax cuts—including those for the wealthiest Americans. The president hopes that what some of his advisers are calling the "tax fairness" argument will win over voters struggling in the fitful economy three and a half years after he took office vowing to fix it.

Why just a one year extension for middle class? It's almost as if he plans on raising them for everyone if Americans are dumb enough to reelect him.

Obama now speaking: "We tired it there way (Republicans) and it didn't work.". And 41 months of 8%+ unemployment is success?

Just a reminder, Obama complaining about Bush's job growth is a little...fanciful.

Shorter Obama: We can't afford to let people keep the money they earn.

Shorter me: It's the spending you socialist ass.
