The Sliding Scale

McCain hits Obama on the creeping definition of rich:

I think the basic problem here is that Obama has absolutely no intention of cutting anyone’s taxes.  That makes it difficult to keep track of the what fictitious threshold of “rich” he’s using this week.

Update: Bill Richardson is down to $120k.  Do I hear 100?

If there was ever any indication that the “95%” number was bullshit, that’s it right there.  Obama must believe that the only thing that divides us is that we all aren’t living in the same Smurf village mushroom house.

Speaking of the upcoming Thief-in-Chief, he had this charming argument:

“The point is, though, that — and it’s not just charity, it’s not just that I want to help the middle class and working people who are trying to get in the middle class — it’s that when we actually make sure that everybody’s got a shot – when young people can all go to college, when everybody’s got decent health care, when everybody’s got a little more money at the end of the month – then guess what? Everybody starts spending that money, they decide maybe I can afford a new car, maybe I can afford a computer for my child. They can buy the products and services that businesses are selling and everybody is better off. All boats rise. That’s what happened in the 1990s, that’s what we need to restore.

Too bad P.J. O’Rourke already adressed this several years ago:

“There is no virtue in compulsory government charity, and there is no virtue in advocating it. A politician who portrays himself as caring and sensitive because he wants to expand the government’s charitable programs is merely saying that he is willing to do good with other people’s money. Well, who isn’t? And a voter who takes pride in supporting such programs is telling us that he will do good with his own money— if a gun is held to his head. ”

I don’t know a single person, even here in socialist Seattle, that believes they won’t be getting a big tax hike if Obama wins....
