Obama's Taxes Taxpayers for more Welfare Checks to Nontaxpayers

-In real numbers, 60.7 million people who have no tax burden at all will receive refunds from Obama, while only 33.8 million people, who pay approximately 40 percent of income taxes, will get any kind of refund. Twenty percent[20%] of taxpayers, who pay 87.5 percent of total income taxes, will actually see after-tax income decline under Obama by nearly two percent[2%], according to the Center. http://www.macpac08.com/2008/10/obamas-tax-lies.html Oct 16, 2008 Obama's Tax Lies Interesting article at the Wall Street Journal, outlining how Obama's tax policy is more about wealth redistribution than it is lowering taxes for, as he says "95% of all families." "For the Obama Democrats, a tax cut is no longer letting you keep more of what you earn. In their lexicon, a tax cut includes tens of billions of dollars in government handouts that are disguised by the phrase "tax credit." Mr. Obama is proposing to create or expand no fewer than seven such credits

“A Third of all the Obama Voters Live with a McCain Voter"

-Morris suggests a simple plan that could put McCain over the top in votes: “A third of all the Obama voters live with a McCain voter. It’s the McCain voters’ job to read . . . stock up on ammunition, and win the breakfast table conversation!” http://www.newsmax.com/insidecover/Morris_close_prez_race/2008/10/27/144599.html Dick Morris Says Presidential Race In 'Tremendous Flux,' with McCain Gaining Monday, October 27, 2008 3:56 PM By: Kenneth D. Williams Article Font Size Dick Morris says the presidential race is now in a state of “tremendous flux,” with McCain gaining anywhere from 3 to 7 percentage points in just the past few hours. Fox News host Neil Cavuto, interviewing Morris for his “Your World” program today, told Morris that, to him, Obama’s economic plan wasn’t adding up. “And no one knows it’s not adding up!” Cavuto said. Morris agreed, saying, “It’s ridiculous to think that you can pay for an elaborate spending plan like Obama’s by taxing 10 people

Obama Caught on Tape Calling for Redistributing Wealth

http://www.newsmax.com/headlines/obama_spread_wealth/2008/10/27/144493.html Obama Caught on Tape Calling for Redistributing Wealth Monday, October 27, 2008 12:22 PM By: David A. Patten Article Font Size One of the tragedies of the Civil Rights movement is that it failed to lead to income redistribution in the United States, Barack Obama appears to state in an audio excerpt of a Chicago public radio program recorded in 2001. Obama, who then was an Illinois state senator, also stated that people continue to “suffer” because there is no government program to take money from the rich and redistribute it to Americans who are less well off. The excerpt, posted on YouTube.com, has set the blogosphere abuzz. It also caught the attention of GOP presidential nominee John McCain, who is using it to help drive home the Joe the plumber theme. McCain states that Obama’s plan to “spread the wealth around” amounts to income redistribution.

Obama: Jekyll-Hyde

-Jekyll-Hyde case. I imagined the leftist Dr. Barack, having won the nomination, drinking a potion and turning into the centrist Mr. Obama for the final campaign. I had to discard this model because Obama manages to hold conflicting positions simultaneously, like one of those images under ridged plastic that changes back and forth as you tilt it. -There is something like that in C. S. Lewis' The Great Divorce, wherein one of the damned spirits, an ugly silent dwarf, leads around a large impressive puppet that speaks for him like a ventriloquist's dummy. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2096438/posts The Enigma of Obama American Thinker ^ | October 03, 2008 | Paul Shlichta Posted on Thursday, October 02, 2008 11:55:03 PM by neverdem A school of thought is emerging that Barack Obama has an advanced form of narcissistic personality disorder. I heartily agree with Robert Bowie Johnson and Dr. Sam Vaknin in their shared conclusion, but I reached it from a somewhat diffe

Powell and Obama's Gay Army

Then-Secretary of State Colin Powell explicitly noted the presence of and positively recognized Guest’s same-sex partner, Alex Nevarez, during the swearing-in ceremony.

Evidence Mounts:Ayers Co-Wrote Obama’s “Dreams”

http://www.cashill.com/natl_general/evidence_mounts.htm Evidence Mounts:Ayers Co-Wrote Obama’s “Dreams” © Jack Cashill AmericanThinker.com October 17, 2008 Evidence continues to mount that Barack Obama had substantial help from Bill Ayers in the creation of his 1995 book, Dreams From My Father, a book that Time Magazine has called “the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician.” The evidence falls into five general categories, here summarized: The discovery of new matching nautical metaphors from both Ayers and Obama that almost assuredly came from the same source: Ayers, a former merchant seaman. The discovery of a Bill Ayers’ essay on memoir writing, whose postmodern themes and phrases are echoed throughout Dreams. A newly discovered book chapter from 1990 that shows clearly and painfully the limits of Obama’s prose style the year he received a contract to write Dreams. The revelation by radical Islamicist Rashid Khalidi that Ayers made his “dining ro

Obama Bought off by the Most Vicious Predators on Wall Street

-But hasn't Senator Obama repeatedly told us in ads and speeches and debates that he wasn't taking money from registered lobbyists? Hasn't the press given him a free pass on this statement? -The Center for Responsive Politics website allows one to pull up the filings made by lobbyists, registering under the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995 with the clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives and secretary of the U.S. Senate. These top five contributors to the Obama campaign have filed as registered lobbyists: Sidley Austin LLP; Skadden, Arps, et al; Jenner & Block; Kirkland & Ellis; Wilmerhale, aka Wilmer Cutler Pickering. -Is it possible that Senator Obama does not know that corporate law firms are also frequently registered lobbyists? -Or is he making a distinction that because these funds are coming from the employees of these firms, he's not really taking money directly from registered lobbyists? -That thesis seems disingenuous when many of these individu

AP/Yahoo shows Obama leading McCain by two points, 44%-42%

Hey, This Race Might Be Winnable A lot of the state polls look pretty bad for McCain lately, but there's been an interesting shift in the tracking polls. * Rasmussen’s Presidential Tracking poll now shows Barack Obama leading John McCain by four points, 50 percent to 46 percent. At one point, Obama was up by 8. * Gallup’s national tracking poll of likely voters has Obama leading McCain by two points, 49 percent to 47 percent. * AP/Yahoo shows Obama leading McCain by two points, 44%-42% * The Reuters/C-Span/Zogby national tracking survey shows Obama leading McCain by five points, 49%-44%. * The GW/Battleground tracking poll has Obama leading McCain by four points, 49%-45%. The other thing is, in most of these, if there's been movement, Obama's been pretty consistent - right around, or just under, 50 percent. McCain's gains have come from undecideds. It has been argued that this election is a referendum on Obama, and I largely concur. The endless magazine covers, th

FactCheck.org Lying on Obama’s Second Amendment Record

Unmitigated Garbage from FactCheck.org on Obama’s Second Amendment Record Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:23 am Xrlq points us to this ridiculous FactCheck.org piece on Obama and gun rights. I am by now completely disenchanted with FactCheck.org and virtually every other “fact checking” site out there, and this piece does nothing to dispel my depression. The summary version: FactCheck ridicules the NRA in this piece. But the NRA is careful to say: look at Obama’s record and not his rhetoric. And at least two of the NRA claims are backed up by references to Obama’s record. Yet FactCheck.org goes on to minimize or completely ignore Obama’s record on these points, choosing instead to concentrate on citations to Obama’s later campaign rhetoric. 1) FactCheck.org declares “false” the NRA’s claim that Obama plans to ban the possession, manufacture, and sale of handguns. But it emerges that this claim is directly based on Obama’s “yes” answer to a the following question in a questionn
