Obama ♥ hypocrisy
Arguably the preeminent directive of modern lefty-politics is this: if your mother didn’t pre-abort you, you must receive your libotomy as scheduled. (American liberals are now prepaid under the Affordable Care Act.)
Post-libotomy, ordinary modern liberals will thus be transformed into true libutards, which is, paradoxically, a higher form of liberalism.
While libutards are not actually immune to hypocrisy, they do appear to lose all self-awareness of their hypocrisy, should it occur. Which it does.
With that as prologue, consider this from Dear Reader’s SOTU address regarding
class warfare tax increases deficit reduction:
To hit the rest of our deficit reduction target, we should do what leaders in both parties have already suggested and save hundreds of billions of dollars by getting rid of tax loopholes and deductions for the well-off and the well-connected. After all, why would we choose to make deeper cuts to education and Medicare just to protect special interest tax breaks? How is that fair?
Next, think of the above SOTU blurb in terms of what’s happening with Facebook (and as appearing in Business Week):
Even though Facebook (FB) reported $1.1 billion in pre-tax profits from U.S. operations in 2012, it will probably pay zero federal and state taxes—and even receive a federal tax refund of about $429 million—according to a Feb. 14 statement from Citizens for Tax Justice.
So what do we have here? A massive, lib-focused, one-hundredth of one-percenter, Obama slurping, crony capitalist “business” benefits from the very tax loopholes and insider breaks the most transparent administration ever complains bitterly about? I’m shocked, shocked!
Another of the preeminent directives of liberalism is this: do as I say and not as I do.
Liberals, your libotomies await you.
