Fiscal Cliff Clown Car

As for the Fiscal Cliff, the President’s latest position is tax hikes now spending cuts later. Krauthammer thinks Lee got a better offer than that at Appomattox.

Super Savers

Democrats on the Super Committee want to use savings from the Iraq War to fund new stimulus. This idea came from this Mark Steyn column.

It’s a Joke, Get it?

The president reminded us he was making a little Jeopardy joke the other day as he introduced Joe the Plumber Spy, Richard Cordray, as top consumer bureaucrat.

Another joke is the way Obama likes to remind us he’s one of the elite and we’re not – unless, of course, we really are keeping hundreds of thousands of dollars we don’t need. He recently did this by targeting bestselling authors, ahem, like himself, for higher taxes. (Here’s a rude bestseller who doesn’t want to join the club). Other times he likes to try a little upwardly mobile bonding with moneybags like Mark Zuckerberg .

Gregg Easterbrook says if Obama wants to pay more taxes, he should just do it.


The president’s press conference ran about an hour today. It seemed like each answer ran that long. The thrust was 1.) the Republicans better do their job and raise taxes and 2.) Malia and Sasha are more responsible than Congress. Number 2 I agree with.
