Commentary of the Day

Lawrence Kramer, on Jennifer Rubin:

I absolutely cringe when I see BO ask for a show of hands: “Who here makes less than $250k? Looks like most of you!” I guess he doesn’t ask who makes more than $250k because he doesn’t want the poor jerks who fess up to be stoned to death before he leaves the podium. (After he leaves would be all right, except that he needs to “ask” them to “contribute” a bit more to his programs.)

The appeal to class warfare, to the mob voting itself largesse, is stomach-turning. I’ve heard some pretty respectable people say some pretty nice things about Obama, but I cannot for the life of me get past the idea that tax policy should be based on who is easiest to demonize. The man clearly does not want to be the President of people making more than $250k. And yet. like lemmings. a bunch of them will vote for him. Fools and their money…
