    What’s past is present: “This whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.”

    What’s past is present: “This whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.”

    Figures.

    I was on the bus this morning heading back to Ithaca from my Tea Party talk at the Cornell Club in NYC when I spotted on my PDA a post by Ed Morrissey about an AP Fact Check debunking Obama’s claim that secretaries pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires.

    The millionaires and billionaires line is not just a line.  It is the justification for Obama’s entire fiscal policy, including proposals for $2 trillion in taxes increases on “the rich” which have been announced by Obama in the past week.

    My first reaction?  Of course it’s false. How could we have a country where approximately 40-45% of people pay no federal income tax, yet millionaires and billionaires pay at a higher lower rate?  The whole line smelled, and now it has been exposed.

    My second reaction?  Damn, I can’t post about this because using the laptop on the bus gets me carsick.  So posting about the nauseating fiscal policy from the bus would have been a double dose of nausea.  It could have gotten ugly.

    When I finally landed, the story was pretty well covered all around.

    But … has anyone trotted out Bill Clinton’s Iraq war “fairy tale” line and used it as to Obama’s “secretaries versus millionaires” fiscal policy?

    “This whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.”

    U R GREAT!

    […] Obama wants the Hopium lobotomized dolts to believe he is waging class warfare on their side (even as he denies the class warfare charge). But he is not. Obama is dropping fast in the polls (now Marist has the boob at 39%) and new flim-flams must be initiated. It’s all a big fairy tale told by an idiot full of sound and fury signifying nothing. […]

    And, do you remember what happened to Bill “the first black president” after he made that speech? Of course you do…….. 😀 He was called a “racist” – and Hillary was labeled a “racist” – by those same fairy-tale-creating newsies, faux reporters/writers, the MSM. I am sure they were doing the Rahmbo-communique, JournOListing coordination of attacks back then, too.

    Sometimes I wonder, when I let my mind wander, what deal was cut by the Obama team with Bill and Hillary to keep them from taking down this narcissist Obama. I am sure Bill was more than hacked off when his fawning media worshipers turned on Hillary – and him. Hillary went into the convention with a bloc of voters and the potential to split the votes; but she didn’t. Was it more than just being offered the Sec. of St. and paying off her campaign debt? Or, were they just letting the failure unfold, as they were certain would come?

    Because, as the old adage goes (was it Sun Tsu who said it?), “Never intervene when your enemy is destroying himself.” This video clip alone shows how clearly Bill knew – KNEW! – that Obama was a failure, and that the MSM was creating a mythical image – but their messiah-emperor had no clothes.

    Expert Alinsky-ites and “third way” battle-scarred warriors like Billary would have been that shrewd, to let the man fail miserably. Although Bill has always been close by, he has been very critical in an almost bumbling, gee-whiz, I dunno kinda way. So it would not look intentional, of course; but it was, and he meant to expose the fraud.

    So, this time, will Bill bail him out? I doubt it. I don’t think Bill would even try.
