Obama’s Tax Return

The thin line between irony and hypocrisy was crossed with the release of President Obama’s 2011 tax return.

While the President bemoans low tax rates for millionaires and billionaires—such as himself—he does nothing to walk the talk, continuing to take advantage of a variety of loopholes and exemptions for those who can afford to do so. You’re shocked, shocked, right?

Obama 2012: Pay as I say, not as I pay.

As Shikha Dalmia writes at Reason,

The point is that if you won’t do voluntarily what you want to compel other people to do, your policy is unlikely to succeed. Call it the Gandhi Test. And the Buffett Rule flunked it—as will the coming liberal jihad against the Bush tax cuts.

My sincere hope is the President will claim unemployment—and pays the taxes—after the 2012 elections.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
