Bush Presidential Library: April 2012 Archives
First, representing tax cuts, the honest, insightful political zombie only now emerging from the crypt in which he was buried, paved over, and well-salted three years and change ago:
I don't care what anyone says, I like that Dubya is finally getting back into the national policy fray. Heaven knows he didn't get into the fight nearly enough during his presidency when the Dems were pounding him into the ground day in and day out for eight years, unopposed, which was a big factor in the GOP's complete collapses of '06 and '08 and the Obamunist national nightmare that resulted from it. I also appreciated his sage observation that it's no coincidence why it's the Dems who go out of their way to refer to the current individual income tax rates as "the BUSH tax cuts," as though that makes them ESPECIALLY evil. After all, a generation ago they didn't call the 1981 Economic Recovery Act the "Reagan tax cuts" after early 1983 when they sent economic growth through the stratosphere, they didn't dare.
Which brings us to Red Barry's graverobbing to find a predecessor behind which to hide his tax-raising mania, much like Mr. Incredible hiding behind the remains of Gazerbeam:
In his own perverse logic, it does make a modicum of sense. If the idea is to try and depict Mitt Romney as a plutocratic crypto-fascist, what better way to go about it than to desecrate the Gipper's memory by reinventing him as a "wild-eyed, socialist, tax-hiking class warrior" - just like Red Barry? Betcha didn't know that Double-R was in Bill Ayers' living room when False Messiah's political career was launched, didja? Must have been the Altzheimers.
To which Mitt only has to say four words: "There you go again..." I hope to God he does it. Given that this is the kind of campaign O is going to wage, he'll have oodles and oodles of opportunties.
