One of the comments that Barack Obama often makes on the campaign trail is that he will cut taxes for 95% of Americans.

Sounds great, but it’s not true. In reality, only 81% are included and many “tax cuts” are actually government checks for people who don’t pay income taxes, according to the New York Post.

The article also reveals some other Greatest Hits on the Obama campaign trail:

  • Obama claims he never voted to raise taxes on people making as little as $42,000.
    Truth: Obama voted on a nonbinding budget resolution to do so.

  • Obama claims all of his proposals are paid for.
    Truth: The Obama Plans would add $3.5 trillion to the national debt by 2018.

  • Obama claims he will reform the pork process.
    Truth: He has asked for just shy of $1 billion in pork for Illinois since entering the Senate.

I guess he lies with such ease, because the mainstream media doesn’t challenge him.

Empty promises, empty suit.

The Barack Obama Tax Plan

Barack Obama frequently mentions the taxes he will reduce, and the mainstream media doesn’t bother to examine what will happen in the areas where he plans to raise taxes.

There is an insightful video, “The Obama Tax Plan,” that examines the implications on the fragile economy if Obama were to have his way with tax increases.

The Barack Obama Drinking Game

If you watched the first Presidential debate, you may have noticed that Obama tends to say “uh” rather often.

Well, the folks over at have created a drinking game based on Obama’s responses during the debate.

Karl Ushanka tried to keep up, but was knocked down for the count with 7 “uh’s” in 19 seconds.
