“The American people are sold. The American people are sold, I just want to repeat that. You have 80% of the American people who support a balanced approach. 80% of the American people support an approach that includes revenues and includes cuts.Turns out, he said it.
I don't know what he was thinking when he said that, but his spin just turned into a damned lie. Eighty percent of Americans don't support increased taxes. If our President believes that, then he's a bigger fool than I ever suspected. 80% percent of Americans support higher taxes. Yeah, right, Mr. President. Not only are you a fool, but you're a damned liar.
I'm betting that the pollsters have a field day with this one. But, for the record, our President is a damned fool. He's probably a felon, too, but we're going to have to wait until Holder is indicted before we find out about that. Right now, fool is enough for me.
UPDATE** Neither Rasmussen nor Gallup back up his 80% claim. He's making it up as he goes along, but that's what fools do. You'd think in this age of instant fact-checking, he'd learn that, but again, our President is a fool. A damned fool.
