Twisting

13Sep08

Barack the Contortionist twisted himself through New Hampshire yesterday, pretending to take an anti-tax pledge in a state that expects it’s politicians to make real anti-tax commitments.

At a town hall-style meeting in blue-collar Dover, he told about 325 supporters and independents, “I pledge to you that under my plan, no one making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not income tax, not capital gains taxes, not any kind of tax.”

McCain “can’t make that pledge,” he said, because the Republican McCain would tax health care benefits.

McCain’s campaign fired back that despite his pledge, Obama “has voted 94 times for higher taxes during his short tenure in the Senate. That includes tax increases on people making as little as $42,000 a year.”

It’s tough to have a campaign based on issues with a candidate who is on every side of every issue.
