Obama Campaigning: $3 In Cuts For Every $1 In Taxes
Obama at Debate: $2.5 in Cuts For Every $1 In Taxes
Obama's Actual Plan: $3 In Taxes For Every $1 In Cuts

He promised 3-to-1, cuts to tax increases.

His actual proposal is exactly the opposite: 3 (close to 4) to 1, taxes to cuts.

Oh, and he's doubled his previous $800 billion in new taxes -- a level he claimed was reasonable -- to $1.6 trillion.

If the last ask was reasonable, what's the new one? Twice as reasonable, I imagine.

And he'll just keep on lying, because the media supports his lies. The media wants a more Europe-like socialist state, and they know the public will not vote for that, if it is put to them straight; so Obama lies, and the media "fact-checks" him and calls his lies the truth.

Before the election, the media did in fact note that Obama's "plan" for $3 trillion in cuts didn't add up. Even Andrea Mitchell noted this. But note that no one interrogated him on this point at a debate, as Jim Lehrer and Candy Crowely interrogated Romney on his tax cut plan. That plan, they said, didn't add up, and wanted to expose Romney to the public on this point.

Obama's plan, they acknowledged sotto voce, also didn't add up, but they didn't feel it was necessary to make a big point about this in a debate which 60 or 70 million people were watching. Such points are better made on daytime cable shows with ratings of 400,000 people... once. Wouldn't want the word to get out.

That Taste In Your Mouth

Is something I like to call "a balanced approach."
