"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Obama Lied at his Press Conference saying 80% Americans wanting Tax Hikes

If the President lies about the percentage of Americans who want Tax Hikes, then how can we believe a word he says.  Must admit that this is a whopper of a lie.  It is Gallup poll to boot which is not exactly the best polling company but certainly is better the Fox News new polling company which leans significantly Democrat.

The nerve of Obama knows no bounds as he outright lied about what the American people want.  Cut the budget the amount you have to raise the debt ceiling and no less.  NO NEW TAXES!  He is salivating over putting taxes on oil and gas -- you can feel it.  Why not drive the economy of middle America oil producing states down and make Obama happy.

How did this man ever get elected with his temperament and arrogance?  He is thin skinned and does not handle stress well.  This is what happens when you elect someone as President with no Government executive experience who is not used to dealing with the legislature for a full term in office.  You cannot beat having that interaction with more than one legislature to get your feet wet.  Over the years we have noticed in the second term that Governors do even better in negotiations with the legislature.  That's a fact that some voters miss because they like the way someone speaks or what they believe.  Obama was not up to the job and it is getting more obvious by the day.  America cannot afford to make any more mistakes.

“80% want higher taxes,” he lied
July 15, 2011 by Don Surber 
 From thr president’s press conference: “The American people are sold. The American people are sold, I just want to repeat that. You have 80% of the American people who support a balanced approach. 80% of the American people support an approach that includes revenues and includes cuts. So the notion that somehow the American people aren’t sold is not the problem. The problem is members of Congress are dug in ideologically.” 
80% want their taxes raised? 
That is not what the ... 
From the above chart only 4% of Americans want to close the deficit with taxes only. 
Only 11% want to close the deficit mostly with taxes. 
And as far as I can tell, that Gallup did not find 80% want their taxes raised. 
And yet, that is what Barry Obama said at his press conference today: “80% want higher taxes.” 
President Obama is one of the 4%. 
He has not said that, but that is what he proposed. 
In his budget he called for increased spending by $100 billion — or in Washington terms by $1 trillion (they keep reporting everything over a 10-year period). 
He has not proposed a single spending cut. 
Not one. 
Not even by a penny! 
In fact, what Washington has — until this crisis — considered to be a spending cut is actually a slowdown in the rate of increase in spending. 
That must change and I think Republicans in the House are changing that. 
Today, President Obama told a press conference on raising their taxes: “The American people are sold. The problem is members of Congress are dug in ideologically.” 
No, the problem is the White House is in a bunker mentality on taxes. 
President Obama’s plan all along was to raise spending so high that Republicans would have to raise taxes. 
That is irresponsible and rash and the American people overwhelmingly rejected that — and him and his zany Obamacare plan — in last November’s election. 
This was his third press conference in two weeks as an increasingly desperate Barry Obama now glares at ever-shrinking re-election numbers. 
Ironically, in a format made for 30-second responses, President Obama said: “The American people do not want to see a bunch of posturing. They don’t to hear a bunch of sound bites. What they want is for us to solve problems. And we all have to remember that. That’s why we were sent here.” 
Yes, that is why the American people are looking for someone else. A Gallup poll showed only 39% of registered voters would vote fort him over any Republican. 
He had 53% of the vote 3 years ago. 
Linked by Glenn Reynolds, thanks, who said: “I’m happy to call your bluff, Mr. President: I challenge you to introduce legislation raising taxes on 80% of Americans.”
