Should Obama extend the Bush tax cuts? Bill Clinton says yes!

“They will probably have to put everything off until early next year,” he added. “That’s probably the best thing to do right now. But the Republicans don’t want to do that unless he agrees to extend the tax cuts permanently, including for upper income people, and I don’t think the president should do that.”



What-choo talkin about Willis?!

    If you look at the presidents who have left office and refused to comment on their successors, you find grace, and honor. If you look at the presidents who have left office and have commented on their successors, you find hubris and lack of manners. Go through the presidents since 1950 and put them in either category, and those lists are telling, very telling.

    Good Old Bubba is a living, walking, talking id (like from Freud, Psychology), he just loves to butt in, and it is usually pretty damn funny for a number of reasons. First, the Clintons do not pay for their misdeeds, someone else always does, whether that is an individual, or a whole political party. They are two of the most toxic individuals, to other people, that there are on earth today, and yet, all the Dems continue to go running back to them. Second, Bubba just does not give a crap, and it is breath taking. He is a textbook sociopath, and yet all these elite, "intelligent" people think he is Mr. Wonderful, but would not leave their daughter, wife, mother, or grandmother alone in a room with the man. Those are both knee slappers right there if you ask me.

    Oh, on keeping the Bush tax cuts for awhile, Clinton understands that a slow death to his targets, which are much the same as Obama's, by 1000 paper cuts ...

Clinton is a sneaky little sh*t, Obama is a guy with a sign, yelling at the top of his lungs. Big difference, but same objective.

    PRES. BILL CLINTON: Well, I think what it means is they will have extend-- they will probably have to put everything off until early next year. That's probably the best thing to do right now. But the Republicans don't want to do that unless he agrees to extend the tax cuts permanently, including for upper income people.

    And I don't think the president should do that. That's going to-- that's what they're fighting about. I don't have any problem with extending all of it now, including the current spending level. They're still pretty low, the government spending levels. But I think they look high because there's a recession. So the taxes look lower than they really would be if we had two and a half, 3% growth. And the spending is higher than it would be if we had two and a half, 3% growth because there are so many people getting food stamps, so many people getting unemployment, so many people are Medicaid.

    But-- the real issue is not whether they should be extended for another few months. The real issue is whether the price the Republican House will put on that extension is the permanent extension of the tax cuts, which I think is an e

    This parsing to attribute a president’s spending to past administrations is a relatively new game. I don’t recall, for example, anyone adjusting President Clinton’s fiscal numbers to reflect that the robust recovery he benefited from actually started under President George H.W. Bush. And President George W. Bush’s fiscal and economic record was undoubtedly affected by the performance of his predecessor: The dot-com boom that helped President Clinton run a surplus was ultimately exposed as a bubble — which burst on Bush’s watch. And if Clinton had had the nerve to take out Osama bin Laden when he had the chance, his successor might never have had to deal with the economic (and of course human) catastrophe of 9/11. Yet I never heard President Bush whine, as President Obama’s supporters constantly whine, that we must rearrange the fiscal record to reflect the mess he inherited from his predecessor.

    The canard that President Obama is not a big spender is now old news, but Ann Coulter’s observation endures: Some liberals tend to confuse their skewed partisan talking points with indisputable truth. It’s “science”! This is black and white, inarguable, and why do Republicans refuse to believe facts? The charts “proving” Obama is a responsible spender were typically disseminated on Fa...

It’s “science”! This is black and white, inarguable, and why do Republicans refuse to believe facts? The charts “proving” Obama is a responsible spender were typically disseminated on Facebook and Twitter with assertions that Mitt Romney is a “liar” for claiming otherwise. In fact, President Obama himself called Romney’s recent speech about our debt crisis — and the charge that President Obama is a big spender — a “cow pie of distortion.” Now it’s one thing to peddle bogus partisan analysis such as those now-infamous charts. That’s mere dishonesty, and as we all know, dishonesty is well within the bounds of normal political discourse. But to call people “liars” for refusing to accept your dishonest nonsense? That takes real chutzpah!

    The problem isn't just about tax rates. Sure higher tax rates increase non-productive efforts to avoid taxes legally and illegally. And there is a tax rate which will maximize revenues. I honestly don't know if that rate would be higher or lower than it is today, but it probably wouldn't be much different than today nor would the revenue generated at the new rate.

    The bigger and more insidious problem is the spending. It far outstrips revenue and diddling with tax rates or tax plans is not going to bring revenues up to current expenditures. And what is worse, politicians in congress have a nasty habit of increasing spending, especially if there is any perceived gain in tax revenues. STOP THE SPENDING!!!!

    FanO'Reilly, Obama could turn his situation around by simply endorsing the FairTax bill.

    After all, every other word out of his mouth is "Fairness"... so considering the serious ass kicking his Fleabag Democrats got today in Wisconsin... considering the writing is on the wall with Bill Clinton siding with lower taxes... Barry simply needs to some out in support of the Fairtax Bill and abolish all income taxes and every other federal tax in favor of the Fairtax!

    That would put his little skinny ass back on the map, and certainly stir the pot among both Dems and RINOs...

    The Bush Master was right on track with cutting taxes. Obama hates if it it not his idea and he needs to arm his war chest with everything he can till after the elections. He needs that carrot to hold over the American people's head till the election and hopes no one will notice his sneaky tactics.

    While I checked this option, I am afraid we may, by end of year be in a position where small increases in taxes will HAVE to be placed on everyone as well as some major cuts to government spending. I am not talking about cutting our defenses, or social security payments to retired folk, but REAL cuts in EVERY department with particular attention to EPA, Education, Commerce, Energy, Homeland Security and discretionary spending. Outlaw pork and cut our all loans from government agencies. The GSA needs to be trimmed way back as well. Sell ALL excess government property that is NOT being used or is bare ground. In other words, liquidation before we have to file bankruptcy.
