Get That Man A Teleprompter

I missed or, rather, didn’t see the president’s news conference today. But Rich Lowry did:

Only someone who desperately hates the position he’s in now, having to try to accommodate political realities in a center-right country and kiss his former messiahship goodbye, would show such peevishness. We got a good look behind the curtain for a moment this afternoon, and it wasn’t pretty.

I’m guessing we’re going to see a lot more of that in the next two years. And it won’t bode well for his reanointment.

“If this deal gave people the belief that Obama might grow in office, the press conference probably deep-sixed that.

Remember all that nonsense from the David Brookses and Chris Buckleys of the world in 2008 about his “first-class temperament”? It’s hard to take anything they tell us seriously, at this point.

    No tax utopia

    Straw. Even I don’t propose that.

    Most people don’t see taxes as “lifting my wallet,” AKA theft.

    Even assuming this made up statistic is true doesn’t make it any less theft. It’s supposed to be government by the consent of the people, isn’t it?

    What one word describes taking money from someone without their consent? Theft! Without consent you have theft. Taxation has always been theft. Taxed. Enough. Already.

    This is why municipalities have votes for bonds. It is a form of consent. The people voting for a bond are saying, yes you can tax us this much to repay the bond. Otherwise they vote against the bond, is essence saying don’t tax us for this.
