    Well if he's not a threat, than, everyone's making a todo about nothing.

    Not only that, if the main stream media would point out how left and socialistic Obama's plans are and how much they are going to "steal" from us than maybe Rush wouldn't have to.

    Besides... if no one likes it, they can just change the channel.

    I find this all somewhat funny.

    If we can support the troops but not the war, why can't someone support the office of President, but not the policies coming from it?

    You guys really should start a comedy tour!:D I mean Bush, Caribou Barbie, Joe The Plumber and Druggie Limbaugh!:D

    The main stream media is smart enough to know IT WAS OBVIOUSLY YOU "EVERYTHING FOR THE RICH, DEREGULATORS & NATION BUILDER WAR MONGER TYPE REPUBLICANTS" (built on lies by the way) that drove America in the ditch!

    Now that someone wants to give 95% of the little less affluent hard working Americans a tax break (the under 250K crowd) you all squeal that it's a socialist revolution.:D

    INTERESTING LITTLE FACTOID: We've had a progressive income tax system for decades and decades and decades... on & on!

    At one point in time under Reagan the top tax bracket was 70%. And you want to cry about it going back up to the Clinton era (read that good economic times) rate of 29% after all the tax breaks passed around to the very well off under Bush!

    THANK GOD PRESIDENT OBAMA GOT ELECTED! I don't think the American people not in that anointed 250K & above crowd could have taken the damage that another 4 years of Republicant rule would have doled out!

    Well we should remember when talking about Federal tax rates, that those are not the only taxes people pay.

    You also have state income taxes, sales taxes, estate taxes, luxury taxes, etc..

    At a Federal rate of 30% (give or take) I think it is realistic to add another 10 plus percent to really cover all the taxes.

    How would ad hominem attacks be doing the right thing?

    It just shows the poverty of their ideas.

    I didn't say the right thing....I said the "Right"-thing, as in "conservative" ad hominem attacks.

    :rolleyes:

    You'll be broke in two years. You can't simultaneously crush wealth and tax it.

    Ahh, I misread that. You are correct. The dems are making ad hominem attacks and you did not claim that it was the right thing to do.

    They can't win if they argue the merits of their plans so they have to divert attention from it by attacking the right.

    Here is an article on that from a main steam newspaper and not from your favorite liberal blog:
