Today, Barack Obama opened his assault on the newly-minted Romney/Ryan 2012 ticket with – you guessed it – a lie.
When it comes to general elections, Democrats understand that they must campaign as Republicans on fiscal issues in order to be taken seriously. So suddenly the greatest tax-hiker in American presidential history, Barack Obama, is posing as a tax-cutter, and trying to position tax-cutters Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as tax-hikers.
To what, exactly, is Obama referring when he says that Romney and Ryan want to raise taxes for 95% of the American public? He’s talking about run-downs of the Romney tax plan by outside sites, not the Romney tax plan itself. Romney and Ryan are not interested in raising taxes on anyone – they’re interested in cutting taxes. Eliminating giveaways to those who do not pay taxes does not count as raising taxes.
