Quotes of the day

“In any event, Obama inadvertently illustrated the argument for the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform: We can’t trust slippery politicians like him to tell us the truth about the nation’s finances, but we can trust his hand-picked advisers (because they’re former politicians). Assuming that’s true, their recommendations still have to be implemented by those mendacious spendthrifts in Congress and the White House. And since accepting the commission’s advice is completely optional, they cannot plausibly deflect responsibility by saying their hands were tied…

“As Americans for Tax Reform notes, this is Obama’s way of pre-emptively renouncing his pledge not to raise taxes on households earning less than $250,000 a year (a pledge he already has broken repeatedly, while refusing to admit it). The president apparently plans to pretend that he had to break his tax pledge because the panel of advisers he appointed suggested that he do so. Yet he insists he wants ‘an honest discussion about putting our country on a more secure fiscal footing.’ OK. You go first.”
