The Presidency is Above Obama's Pay Grade!

To be honest, I have purposely not paid too much attention to what Obama has said in the past. Now, I am paying attention, and my blood pressure is going through the roof.

First, I lost it when I heard him call into Brit Hume's show on Thursday. He would never answer Brit's questions but would ramble on about nothing and blame the mess we are in on Republicans. I am losing my patience with the fact that the Democrats blocked Republican attempts to reform Fannie and Freddie for years and are now attempting to place the blame on Republicans. Just like the cartoon from my previous post, Obama is in this up to his eyeballs but he is attempting to divert attention from that fact.

Then, I had to listen to him pontificate during the debate. If I hear one more word about class warfare or tax cuts for the rich I'm going to have a meltdown. How hard is it to understand that if "rich people" don't get tax cuts, the businesses they run will either have to raise their prices, hire less people or hire people at lower wages. If everyone gets tax cuts it BENEFITS EVERYONE. It stimulates the economy, it enables companies to provide lower prices for goods, it enable them to hire more people and for better wages.

Yet, certain liberals don't seem to care what is best for this country. They would rather "punish rich people" for having the audacity to work hard and succeed. I will never understand this. During one of the Democrat debates Obama even admitted that he didn't care if it was better for the economy or for society in general to have tax cuts across the board, he wanted to "sock it to the rich". And unfortunately, there are many ignorant people who think the same way. I remember thinking that way myself when I had just gotten out of college. The rich should pay more taxes. They already do, but Obama wants to make them pay even more.

According to 2006 IRS data, guess who pays most of the taxes already? The rich!! Below is a summary of who pays what:
The top 1% of taxpayers pay about 40% of all income taxes, the top 10% pay 71%, and the top 50% pay 97% of all taxes. The bottom 50% pays less than 3% of all income taxes paid.

So when will the rich pay enough for Obama and the other elitist liberals?

The video at the top shows how dangerous it will be to let Obama take over the White House. He has no clue how to protect this country and has shown he doesn't know how to make difficult decisions. When asked about slaughtering innocent babies he said the question was above his pay grade. When he was given his first big decision to show how he would lead he picked the walking gaffe machine Biden.

He doesn't have the judgment or the wisdom needed to lead this country. For the sake of our national security and our pocket book, we cannot afford an Obama presidency. He has already shown that it is above his pay grade.
