Obama Tax Promise? Yea, Right.


Despite promising to roll back the Bush Tax Cuts Obama’s team has indicated they may hold off on this action.  Why?  Because it would be brutal to the economy.  Why couldn’t “the One” acknowledge this during the campaign?  Ohh….because his nut root base would have howled.  Wonder how they feel now as we see campaign promise after campaign promise broken. 

The rhetoric has met reality and reality is winning.  Now that “the one” actually has to govern he is being forced to dump his ridiculous campaign promises. 

President-elect Barack Obama may consider delaying an election promise – to roll back tax cuts on high-income Americans – as part of his economic recovery strategy, a senior aide and an adviser said on Sunday.

David Axelrod, one of Obama’s closest confidants chosen to be a senior White House adviser, was asked if the tax cut could be ended later than Obama called for during the campaign. “Considerations will be made,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.”
