DUBYA AND THE GRANNY STARVER: SEPARATED AT BIRTH?
George W. Bush this morning, at a speech to a conference at the New-York Historical Society:
"If you raise taxes on these so-called rich, you're really raising taxes on the job creators," he said at the conference, which was sponsored by the Bush Institute, which he opened after leaving office. "And if the goal is to create private sector growth, you have to recognize that the best way is to leave capital in the treasuries of the job creators."
Paul Ryan this morning, on MSNBC's Morning Joe:
"Let’s define rich," [Joe] Scarborough suggested. "So, what's the cutoff? Is it $500,000?"
"I don't even want to get into what the cutoff is because I don't think we should get into this definition," Ryan said. "But I'm not going to give you what I think is a rich person and what I think is not a rich person because you have to look at the fact that these are job creators."
And look where the granny starver is approaching the podium even as I type:
Romney/Ryan (which is the ticket no matter who's Romney's #2) = third Bush term -- at a minimum.
