I'm watching MSNBC (getting my liberal sided education). I love the double speak from both parties. (
Note, the following is from the MSNBC point of view -- I bet I'd get the opposite from Fox:
I just found out Clinton was awesome because he raised taxes and the economy grew (no credit given to the dot com frenzy or the fact he left office in a recession). I also found out Bush was a moron for cutting taxes since it led us to the Great Recession (no mention of 9/11, just two unpaid wars -- also no mention that Obama has continued one of those two and ended the other the same time Bush would have ended it).
Now the part that has me confused. Seems the Democrats think it's a bad idea to raise taxes on anyone but the rich (I agree, but doesn't that contradict half of what they praised Clinton for doing and half of what they criticized Bush for doing?). Also seems the Republicans refuse to raise taxes on the rich, but would instead rely on cuts that would directly impact the middle and lower classes (again, I'm confused as I thought the point of tax cuts was to help the middle class by creating jobs, etc.). Dear God, even though I see the historical irony in all of this, it appears to me that in this case the Democrats might have my vote.
Now, the gun control debate is a different story....Bob Costas should be fired for his tirade last night.
