Obama hammers Romney tax plan in Ohio
By Olivier Knox, Yahoo! News
White House Correspondent
Stumping for votes in the pivotal battleground of Ohio, President Barack Obama hammered Mitt Romney's tax plan on Wednesday, highlighting a new study that said the Republican challenger's blueprint could leave poor and middle-class Americans paying more to the IRS to offset tax cuts for the wealthiest.
"If Gov. Romney wants to keep his word and pay for this plan, then he'd have to cut tax breaks that middle-class families depend on to pay for your home, the home mortgage deduction; to pay for your health care, the health care deduction; (or) to send your kids to college," the president said.
"And here's the thing: He's not asking you to contribute more to pay down the deficit, he's not asking you to pay more to invest in our children's education, or rebuild our roads or put more folks back to work," Obama said in Mansfield, Ohio. "He's asking you to pay more so that people like him can get a big tax cut."
The Romney campaign charged that "glaring gaps" in the study invalidated its analysis and accused Obama of trying to distract voters from the sputtering economy.
Both sides were sparring over a new independent study by the Brookings Institution think tank and the Tax Policy Center that found Romney's tax plan would leave millionaires paying less in taxes and the poor and middle class paying more. (Romney aides noted that one of the study's authors is a former member of Obama's Council of Economic Advisers. But another author, William Gale, served on President George H. W. Bush's Council of Economic Advisors.

Peter, Paul and Mary - If I Had A Hammer
Obama is dumber than donuts. He was holding a hammer by the head, running it back and forth over a two by four wondering why he couldn’t cut the wood.
“Joe! We need to sharpen this saw.”
It is not going to be easy to take the bone away from the dog.
It’s The Coffee Server vs. Hillary Romney all over again.
This ‘yahoo news’ is as biased as politico.
The poor don’t pay ANY taxes now. Businesses pay a ton. And yes we need busineeses to employ the poor.
The DemonRats’ tax plan is a “progressive” one. Successful and productive individuals are progressively punished. The better they do, the higher their tax rate (greater their punishment).
A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who breathes out lies will perish.
You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness breathes out lies.
Like the glaze covering an earthen vessel are fervent lips with an evil heart. Whoever hates disguises himself with his lips and harbors deceit in his heart; when he speaks graciously, believe him not, for there are seven abominations in his heart; though his hatred be covered with deception, his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly. Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, and a stone will come back on him who starts it rolling.
The righteous hates falsehood, but the wicked brings shame and disgrace.
Exodus 23:1 (This one is for james carville)
You shall not spread a false report. You shall not join hands with a wicked man to be a malicious witness.
Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.
But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth.
Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive. The venom of asps is under their lips.
Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and the sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood.
A man who bears false witness against his neighbor is like a war club, or a sword, or a sharp arrow.
Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples, The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat, so practice and observe whatever they tell youbut not what they do. For they preach, but do not practice. They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on people's shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to move them with their finger. They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long,
But nothing unclean will ever enter it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or false, but only those who are written in the Lamb's book of life
2 Thessalonians 2:9
The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders,
And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had done the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.
Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.
If I were with a group of like minded individuals, it might be fun to go to an Obamugabe speech, and just laugh at all his attack lines. Genuine laughter, as if he is joking...it would put the ridicule right in his face.
Not over the top laughter, let it be heard and seen, then let it die down and let him go on a bit...and then laugh again.
He gives the same stump speeches over and over, so picking good times to mock him would take a little bit of research, but it might be fun.
