Obama was against the Bush tax cuts, before he was for them, before he was against them. Did you catch all that?
A tug-of-war has been going on within our president. He's always been a big supporter of taxing the achievers in this nation so as to spread their wealth around. Yet, in December, with much kicking and screaming, he caved in and extended the Bush tax cuts, which was a surprise to everyone. After all, he is facing an election. However, such a move was so foreign to Obama's nature that we knew it could not last, and it did not. The spread the wealth Robin Hood policy won in the end. What a surprise!
Read about the public's reaction to Obama's latest plan, via Gateway Pundit:
59% of Americans HATE Barack Obama’s Tax the Rich Plan
"It was a real snoozer.
Obama pushed his plan to cut the budget by raising taxes and ending the Bush tax cuts.
Americans hate the idea.
'Weighing in on the Washington budget debate, 59 percent of Americans prefer to cut existing programs while 30 percent would rather raise taxes to reduce deficit spending.
And they prefer to cut defense spending rather than programs that affect them more directly like Medicare and Social Security.'
65% of American voters don’t believe for a second that the government will cut spending until after 2012… when Obama retires."
Krauthammer critiques Obama's speech, via the Daily Caller:
Obama Budget Speech Called “Most Dishonest in Decades”
Poor Barry! Even the poor have become disillusioned with his "hope and change" nonsense. Let's go down memory lane. Surely, you will remember the foolish woman who believed the election of Obama would solve all her financial worries.

Gallup: Obama’s Approval Drops Below 50% Among Poorest Americans, No Longer Enjoys Majority Approval In Any Income Class…
"I guess Hope and Change didn’t pay for her gas and mortgage.
(CNS News) — 'President Barack Obama’s approval among the poorest Americans dropped to an all-time low of 48 percent last week, according to the Gallup poll, leaving the president with less-than-majority approval among all income brackets reported in Gallup’s presidential approval surveys.
Each week, Gallup publishes the president’s average approval rating for the previous week among four income brackets: those who earn $2,000 per month or less, those who earn between $2,000 and $4,999 per month, those who earn between $5,000 and $7,499 per month, and those who earn $7,500 per month or more.
For the week of April 4-10, Obama’s approval rating was 48 percent among those making $2,000 or less per month, and 46 percent among those in each of the three higher income brackets.
This was only the second time in his presidency that Obama’s average weekly approval rating among the poorest Americans had dropped below 50 percent. The first time was three weeks ago — in the week of March 21-27 — when his approval dropped to 49 percent among Americans who earn $2,000 per month or less. (Two weeks ago, the president’s approval among this income bracket rebounded to 52 percent before dropping to 48 percent last week.)'"
