My email to Barack Obama
While perusing the blogosphere this morning I came across a video posted at Bunkerville that I found to be quite interesting; it is a video of JFK espousing the need for tax cuts during a recession. Here is the video:
This is a position that Barack Obama agreed with when he broke his campaign promise and extended the Bush tax cuts declaring, “the last thing you want to do is raise taxes in the middle of a recession.”
A stunning reversal when you consider that while running for president he claimed that the Bush tax cuts were partially responsible for the recession:
Last night, during his speech, Barack Obama made it clear that he supports raising taxes while this recession is ongoing. It is clear that Barack Obama is a little confused; he simply doesn’t understand economics so he says whatever he feels his audience at that particular moment in time wants to hear. Because Barack Obama doesn’t understand economics I thought that it was quite possible that he has never heard JFK’s position on tax cuts, so I sent him a very short, but polite email this morning in the hopes of educating him.
Here is the contents of that email:
Last night during your speech on the debt ceiling you quoted President Reagan, while mentioning Presidents Clinton and George HW Bush, but for some strange reason you neglected to mention JFK. So I thought I would provide you with a video link to a speech JFK gave in 1963. You might find it interesting and informative.
I included the link to the JFK video posted above. As of yet I have not even received a confirmation that email was received and I am not expecting to receive a reply, but it I do you all will be the first to know.
