Outrageously stupid quote of the week: Ann Coulter shows off her cultural/political knowledge.

 

When asked by George Stephanopoulos if immigrantscivil rights were being attacked, conservative columnist Ann Coulter showed her knowledge off on TV.

“No. I think civil rights are for blacks. What have we done to the immigrants? We owe black people something. We have a legacy of slavery. Immigrants haven’t even been in this country.”

Is it any wonder that Ms. Coulter has such a conservative following?

 

Gee… Elly and I are no longer “Middle Income”

 

Well, we have to thank the Mittster for making the economic level of middle income clear. He told George Stephanopoulos:

Romney Interview: $250K is middle income

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Is $100,000 middle income?

MITT ROMNEY: No, middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less.

Even with Elly’s full time teaching job and my Social Security plus pension money, which used to make us think we were middle income, puts us in the ranks of the lower economic folks.

Does this mean that the rich folk Romney cultivates are going to avoid tax increases allowing Romney to claim he had served the middle class? I guess so. What a clever ruse.

If we elect Obama we can move back into the middle class and not feel so depleted in our economic situation. Not that I don’t wish we made $250,000.00, but we are not likely to. And, of course, we don ‘t make $100,000.00 either. I guess we are now poor.

 

Obama Refuses To Say He’d Veto Extension Of Bush Tax Cuts For Wealthy

This HuffPo article on Obama’s interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC this morning:
clipped from www.huffingtonpost.com
President Obama on Thursday refused to commit himself to vetoing legislation that would temporarily extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, even as he and his administration have steadfastly argued that such an extension would waste hundreds of billions of dollars.
In an interview with ABC News‘s George Stephanopoulos, the president was asked on four occasions whether his commitment to letting the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy expire was strong enough to veto even a “short term extension.” On each occasion, Obama demurred.
The exchange, for what it’s worth, was flagged by a Republican congressional aide who noted how little Democrats would likely feel emboldened by the remarks. It does, indeed, seem increasingly likely that Congress punts on the issue, passing a temporary extension of all Bush tax cuts with the goal of revisiting their expiration in two years.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) has said he would be willing to discuss this compromise.
