Obama SOTU: Ties To Take Credit For Bush Tax Cuts Then Later Says We Won't Make Them Permanent

I'm reading Barack Hussein Obama's State of The Illusion address because it's about the only way I can stomach it. Here's an excerpt if you care to read.

First point:
That’s the project the American people want us to work on. Together.

We did that in December. Thanks to the tax cuts we passed, Americans’ paychecks are a little bigger today. Every business can write off the full cost of the new investments they make this year. These steps, taken by Democrats and Republicans, will grow the economy and add to the more than one million private sector jobs created last year.
Ummmm. Those weren't tax cuts you passed. They were simply extensions of the once evil Bush Tax Cuts.

But those tax cuts that Obama wants to take credit for he wants to take away.
And if we truly care about our deficit, we simply cannot afford a permanent extension of the tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% of Americans. Before we take money away from our schools, or scholarships away from our students, we should ask millionaires to give up their tax break.

It’s not a matter of punishing their success. It’s about promoting America’s success.
"That One" also calls for a cut in the corporate tax rate. But how can you be trusted to cut corporate taxes when liberals have raised those taxes so high in the first place? Especially when you intend to punish those who create wealth--those evil rich people!

There is no moderation or move to the center. It is all smoke and mirrors.
