The Campaign Spot

‘Barack Obama would cut the taxes of the guy who cut you off in traffic this morning.’

Here in Denver, I just saw an Obama television ad, hitting McCain for proposing, “$4 billion in tax cuts for oil companies.” When you cut the corporate tax rate, then yes, oil companies get tax cuts, as does every other company – alternative energy companies, car companies, brewers, construction companies, restaurant chains, etc.
By this standard, Obama’s tax plan offers tax cuts for child molesters and serial killers.
This is what happens when a candidate makes a silly charge, and the press doesn’t make an issue of it. They keep repeating it and repeating it, because it’s clear that there’s no consequence.
