Sounds good, but please follow through:

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said that allowing tax cuts for the wealthy to expire would be “the responsible thing to do.”

That it responsible goes without saying. After all, the deficit hawks who go on and on about the dangers of deficits … seem to ignore this:

And hey, how’s that war-thing worked out for everybody?

Of course for most of the deficit scolds, the fact that the filthy rich will have their taxes go up is what only a Commie-Fascist-Socialist-Maoist-Kenyan-America hater could want.

Tim Geithner and even Alan Greenspan with the bulk of the American people versus the really, really rich.

So, will you actually have the guts Mr. President?



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
