Creigh Deeds Explains His Position on Tax Hikes With Kerryesque Clarity

I can’t believe this guy might be my next governor. Creigh Deeds, explaining his position on taxes, says at one point, “I’m not going to raise taxes, but I’m going to sign a transportation plan that raises new revenue.” Then in the post-debate press conference, he says, within milliseconds of each other, “I have no plans to raise taxes” followed by “everything is on the table.”

Somewhere, John Kerry is watching this and saying, “See? It’s not just me!”
