Ahhhh (yawn)...Obama On the Verge of Yet Another Broken Promise
Remember when Obama continually and very sternly vowed that those making less than $250,000 a year would not see their taxes increase? That was BEFORE he had your vote, SUCKERS!

Ahhh yes, there’s nothing I love more than when, right before an election, people think, “Yeah, I know we’ve been duped before, but this time it’s different. This time, I really think things will change. He looks so sincere and speaks so eloquently, how can he be lying?” Easy. He doesn’t have your vote secured yet. That’s how.
Remember the good old days  when Obama seemed immovable on the promise that he would lower taxes on those making less than $250,000? Well, it seems immovable Obama may just budge after all.
In a story by Rich Miller of Business Week, Obama is now ““agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit”. In an Oval Office interview for Business Week on February 9, Obama said that a presidential commission on the budget needs to consider all options for reducing the deficit. This includes putting “all ideas on the table” according to Obama.
Perfect timing for Obama. With his approval ratings teetering at the mid 40’s and millions of Americans finally waking up and realizing what a colossal mistake they made voting for yet another Bilderberg/Trilateral/CFR puppet, Obama is laying the groundwork for being a shoe-in for a one-term presidency and letting the floodgates wide open in 2012 for a Republican [or even Independent] predecessor.
Here are several clips showing Obama making it very very clear he will NOT raise taxes on those making less than $250,000 a year
Here’s a clip for the ages. In this clip [below, at 1:31 into it] Obama says this:
“If you make less than a quarter million dollars a year, let me sh---show of hands…how many people make less than a quarter million dollars a year? [nearly everyone raises their hands] All right. Well, I’m talking to you then. You will not see your taxes increase one single dime in an Obama administration.”
Well, not until now.
On FOX News’ Your World with Neil Cavuto on October 31, 2008, fill-in host Stewart Varney annihilated Obama spokesperson Malia Lazu when he kept pointing out that Obama, as well as several other Democrats [including Joe Biden and Bill Richardson], parroted different threshold figures of where Obama’s tax cut line would be drawn.
Obama changed the figure himself on more than one occasion. He said during one speech those who made under $250,000 would receive the tax cut. He said on another occasion it would be $200,000. Biden said the figure would be $150,000. Bill Richardson said the figure would be $120,000.
Here’s Obama spokesperson Malia Lazu defending the many different threshold figures
No one agreed on the figure. Maybe that is because it was a bullshit promise in which no one had any intention on delivering, so what was the importance of getting the figure right?
