Obama Calls It “Selfishness” That People Don’t Want Taxes Raised

October 31st, 2008 · 3 Comments

Political Punch. “John McCain and Sarah Palin they call this socialistic,” Obama continued. “You know I don’t know when, when they decided they wanted to make a virtue out of selfishness.” So we’ve have Biden call people who don’t want higher taxes “unpatriotic” and now Obama calls us “selfish”.  I think Biden should give more […]

October 24th, 2008 · 1 Comment

HT from National Review. McCain Gets My Vote by Charles Krauthammer on National Review Online. The case for McCain is straightforward.
