    I hope you're not paying Ari Fleischer for his commentary. If all he heard last night was that Obama want's to spend other people's monies, either his ears are plugged or he's so partisan that he can't be honest. I'm always happy to hear people debate the facts and provide nuanced discussion based on experience, but Fleischer is simply someone's lap dog. Get rid of him.

    Obama wants to increase the minimum tax on millionaires to 30%. I just have to wonder about Obama's IQ. If a millionaire's income is due to capital gains, which is taxed at less than 30%, then he'll have to raise the captial gains tax, which is already on of the highest of advanced nations. Even Obama admits that LOWER corporate taxes will stimulate and help return jobs to the US. Yet he simultaneously wants to RAISE them?

    Is Obama playing politics, trying to confuse people for political gain, or is he just plain stupid? I'm honestly not sure, but it has to be one or the other.

    I am extremely offended at the statment one of your commentators made about The President's sole purpose is to spend other people's money. He is so deadlocked in his idealogy that he didn't even hear what the president said. He act as if when republicans are in office spending other peoples money immediately stops. Obama has been saying we need to spend money where it counts.
