David Axelrod all but advertised it. Of course, we all remember that during the campaign, Team Obama was promising everyone and their mother a middle-class tax cut. It appears that promise will go the way of Bill Clinton’s very same pledges in 1992 to offer Americans a middle-class tax cut.
“Slick Barack” does not have much of a ring to it. But seeing as how the Obama promise turned out to be as cynical as the Clinton one, I can understand if some people want to use it as a nickname for the President. To close out this post–and yes, I know this gets asked a lot–who raises taxes while there is a recession still going on?
