DISCUSSES TAX STRATEGIES WITH ‘INFLUENTIAL PROGRESSIVES’
Is it just me, or does it seem like every day brings another “SNL Update” moment for the Regime? Think about it. Imagine George Bush inviting Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter and Bill O’Reilly to the White House to discuss taxes rates and debt reduction strategies. Aside from the immediate histrionics and calls for impeachment from the liberal media sock puppets, “W” would’ve probably even been skewered by the RINOs. But, hey – this is Planet Obama – anything’s possible. For the Obamabots, that is.
I mean, here we are – the clock running down on massive tax increases and the fiscal cliff deadline – and what has O done over the last three weeks?
First, he met with union thugs at the White House. Next, he took a quick campaign trip to a Tinker Toy factory. And now, he convenes a high-level strategy session with noted economists – professional race-hustler Al Sharpton, self-proclaimed socialist Lawrence O’Donnell, closet-socialist Rachel Maddow and left-wing hate-monger Ed Scultz – in the White House – to discuss tax tial progressives.” Oh, and the brilliant political analyst Arianna Huffington was in attendance, as well.
From our pals at HuffPost:
President Barack Obama met with Rachel Maddow, Al Sharpton and other “influential progressives” on Tuesday as part of his campaign to sell the public on the need to extend the Bush middle-class tax cuts.
The Regime wouldn’t give details on who was in the meeting or how long it lasted, but HuffPost spotted several attendees on their way in, just after 3 p.m., including MSNBC’s Maddow, Sharpton and Lawrence O’Donnell. Ed Schultz, also from MSNBC, tweeted a photo just outside of the West Wing. Continue reading…
Here’s the hilarious statement from the Regime’s deputy press secretary, Josh Earnest:
“This afternoon at the White House, the President met with influential progressives to talk about the importance of preventing a tax increase on middle class families, strengthening our economy and adopting a balanced approach to deficit reduction.”
Let me get this straight. I’m sure these left-wing loons are experts on all things economic, but Barack Obama, President of the United States of America, feels the need to sit down with the likes of Al Sharpton, Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell and Ed Schultz to talk about “the importance of preventing a tax increase on middle class families”?
Uh-huh. That’s like Kim Kardashian sitting down with her entire dysfunctional family and discussing the importance of protecting dysfunction families.
By the way, what exactly is progressive about progressives?
A quick trip to Merriam-Webster finds this definition of progressive: a: of, relating to, or characterized by progress; b: making use of, or interested in new ideas, findings or opportunities.
Forgive me for raining on the socialist party, but how can a transformation to the old worn out ideas of Marxism be characterized as “progress”, “new” or “opportunity”? How can knowingly pitting one class of Americans against another – for political purposes – be described as “progressive”?
One of the traits of insecurity and self-doubt is the continual attempt to insulate oneself against all opposition and resistance by surrounding said self with sycophants and loyalists. The arrogance, intransigence and hollow bluster on full display at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is as good an example of this trait as is any in politics today.
Barack Obama may very well “win” this round; it’s America that will continue to lose.
