When is a Tax Hike Not A Tax Hike? When You're An Obama Shill.
Leftists in the media are, more and more, intentional or not, exposing themselves for who they really are. Socialists. Leftists. Statists. Obama zombies. Because they are certainly not journalists.
Norah O'Donnell is, apparently, no exception. Weighing in on an economics discussion on the budget with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Charlie Rose, O'Donnell and Ryan have the following exchange:
O'Donnell (with a vacant grin): “Congressman, you’re calling them ‘tax policy’ and ‘tax code.’ You’re afraid to call them tax cuts now?”
Rep. Ryan: “They’re not tax cuts, Norah, because they’ve been –” (Laughter)
“Because they’ve been the tax policy for 10 years.”
O'Donnell: “Come on, Congressman!”
Rep. Ryan: “Honestly, Norah. Keeping taxes where they are is not cutting taxes. Preventing a tax increase is preventing a tax increase. It’s not actually cutting taxes,” Rep. Ryan said.
So Norah, how far back should we go back for comparisons? Because, apparently a decade is not far enough. Is the media going to now say that if Obama "adjusts" tax rates to, say 50%, that it is actually a 20% tax cut, because the top rate under Jimmy Carter was 70%?
To answer my own question: Yes! Norah O'Donnell is that stupid! She is that stupid because she thinks that the average person can't see through her complete arrogance, and that her premise doesn't even pass the common sense test.
If O'Donnell isn't careful, people will start to believe that she is there only for her looks, because she certainly isn't demonstrating her superior intellect in these types of exchanges, where her guest actually knows the subject they are being interview about. She comes off looking only foolish and vapid.
