President Hints At Job-Killing New Taxes If Re-Elected
Here’s the money–literally–quote, emphasis added:
“So, when you hear folks saying ‘Well, the president shouldn’t want massive job killing tax increases when the economy is this weak.’ Nobody’s looking to raise taxes right now. We’re talking about potentially 2013 and the out years.”
Sounds like he’s channeling Walter Mondale, who famously said:
Mr. Reagan will raise taxes, and so will I. He won’t tell you. I just did.
Admittedly, Obama stepped back from proclaiming that the GOP nominee–whoever he or she is–will raise taxes, but the rest of the statement rings pretty true.
How’d that tactic work for Mr. Mondale? Hmmm…
