Iowa Liberal sucks.

Jan 25, 2011 in Politics

It’s the baby, I swear.

President dared mention oil subsidies tonight and took on the repeal monkeys. Wonder which will generate more outrage?

Of course, what should produce outrage is the symbolic earmark and discretionary spending fluff that won’t come close to paying for the “bipartisan” tax cut deal Obama just signed. It was nice of him to get in front of the Republicans in 2012 and signal that he’s against extending it beyond that year, but he only gets the credit if he doesn’t cave again. Maybe he doesn’t understand, but with Republicans it’s always time for more tax cuts. He won’t get a better deal.

Overall, though, he did well. The fact that the comments thread over at CSPT is babbling about teleprompters should tell you plenty.
