I just realized that I haven't actually quoted him, assuming that you already know exactly what he said. You probably do. But that's why they're going after Joe for asking a question about Obama's tax plan, to distract us from Obama's answer. So it can't hurt to repeat it:
"It's not that I want to punish your success. I want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success, too. My attitude is that if the economy's good for folks from the bottom up, it's gonna be good for everybody. I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."
Obama doesn't want to punish your success; he just wants to take the fruits of your labor and give them to people who haven't earned them. He wants to force you to give the amount of his choice to the charity of his choice. Don't worry about it, he'll take care of the whole thing.
Obama is a socialist. Pass it on.Posted by Jim Treacher at October 18, 2008 09:42 AM
