Since 2008 Obama has pursued a class warfare agenda, narrowing his focus over time from the Top 5% to the Top 2% to the Top 1%. This year Obama has narrowed his focus even further, singling out those millionaires and billionaires who pay a lower tax rate than their secretaries.
To the extent...
We keep hearing about how we should not nominate a candidate who is not disciplined and will create needless general election distractions .

The tease on the homepage of The Hill for an article about Obama’s Christmas vacation dilemma reads:

Of course, there always will be a top 1%, so those in the Occupy Wall Street movement who want to demonize the top 1% always will have a cause.
But the numbers of millionaires who could be taxed to feed the demands of the proletariat is down in New York State:
Gannett’s Albany Bureau reported...
The anti-1% street agitation is the fulfillment of a process we have seen unfold since Obama’s 2008 campaign, a process by which a group of various definitions of wealth is isolated and targeted for demagoguery.
It was the Top 5%, then the Top 2%, now it’s down to the Top 1%.
The silent majority.
The ones who pay the bills, and the taxes, and the tuitions, and the pensions, and the benefits, for the people who falsely claim to be the 99%.
The ones who did not graduate from the school of perpetual expectations and handouts.
The ones who falsely have been called terrorists and...
You may remember that Amazon.com stopped doing business through “affiliates” (websites and blogs) in California, after the state passed a law requiring companies like Amazon to collect state sales taxes on purchases made through California affiliates.
As Kathleen posted earlier, Warren Buffett is backing away from the so-called Buffett Rule, which apparently is not so much a Rule as a stream of consciousness sprinkled with thoughts and afterthoughts.

At a recent Obama campaign event masquerading as a town hall, an ex-Google executive begged Obama to raise his taxes, to which Obama responded with an Elizabeth Warren-like argument:
I was on the bus this morning heading back to Ithaca from my Tea Party talk at the Cornell Club in NYC when I spotted on my PDA a post by Ed Morrissey about an AP Fact Check debunking Obama’s claim that secretaries pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires.
The millionaires and billionaires...
Five days ago Obama unveiled a “jobs plan” which included tax hikes of $467 billion, $400 billion of which were on individuals making $200,000 (and couples making $250,000).
How sad. Our president has been reduced to chasing demons.
Obama’s recent phony jobs bill which raised $400 billion in taxes on everyone making over $200,000 (couples over $250,000) apparently did not whip the masses into a pitchfork and torch frenzy, because it targeted our doctors, local business owners, and others who are...
The Great Jobs Plan of 2011 is nothing more that The Great Tax Increase of 2011.
He’s completely incorrigible, the Rain Man of class warfare and tax increases on job creators:

… in order to pay for your grand spending plans is that sometimes you run out of rich:
… based on 2009 IRS figures, … the number of taxpayers reporting annual income over $1 million fell 39 percent between 2007 and 2009; the number of super-wealthy individuals making over $10 million annually plunged 55 percent.

Ya didn’t think this through, did ya, geniuses?
