I'm so glad this election will be over in one week. I'm not sure how much more of this I can take. Imagine my surprise when I heard that Obama is a Marxist. Yesterday a Florida CBS affiliate anchorwoman asked Joe Biden about Obama's Marxist tendencies.
I don't think the Democrats have really answered it appropriately. You know, Teddy Roosevelt, a Republican, was very much an advocate of what's called progressive taxation, and that the rich pay more than the poor in terms of taxes. Now one of the most effective anti-poverty programs we've had in the last three decades, it's called the earned income tax credit. It's a program whereby, if you're a working person . . . and you're below the poverty line, the government will actually give you money. That's a redistributive program. It's a program which takes money from the upper classes and gives it . . . to the working poor.
Now who started the program? The earned income tax credit? Ronald Reagan . . . it was an achievement of the Regan administration that Bill Clinton built on. So I think that these arguments are--you know, some of them get so carried away that they don't recognize the realities of what we've been going through in public policy. . .
I will stop calling George Bush a jackass when he stops calling me a terrorist: 'Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists.'
I will stop calling John McCain an ass when he stops calling Barak Obama a socialist at every dog and pony show on the Straight Talk Express tour.
I will stop calling Sarah Palin a bitch when she stops calling Obama a terrorist sympathizer. And I will stop calling Sarah Palin a bitch when she stops calling the parts of the country where I don't live more Pro-American than the part of the country where I do live."
