The Clown Show Continues, as Republicans Criticize Obama for selling tax increase “campaign style” to the People.

How unfair of Obama to ask the American voters to send a message to their elected politicians about how they feel about a tax on the wealthy. Oh, the horror of it all.

Even funnier? The GOP is now planning their own campaign tour, but not to the American public. Instead, they’re going to listen to select business owners.  After all, they’re the ones running the country now anyway.
Frustrated Republican leaders took a swipe Tuesday at President Obama, reminding him “the election is over” as he opts for a campaign-style strategy to sell his tax-hike proposal to middle-class America and small business owners – rather than deal face-to-face with Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill. “The target of the president’s rallies should be the congressional Democrats who want to raise tax rates on small businesses rather than cut spending,” Boehner spokesman Mike Steel said Tuesday.
I don’t know, I think voters might have to send this message again; elections have consequences. That's what we're hearing here in Wisconsin all the time, as nearly half the state's voters who didn't like Scott Walker get steam rolled with his far right wing agenda. So...
Meanwhile, Republicans will make their own appeal to Americans … House Republicans will take their own message to small businesses across the country … to emphasize “the threat to jobs posed by congressional Democrats’ small business tax hike.”
It's not a small business tax. It's an income tax. Oh boy...
