Obama goes after Rove group’s ad

Washington (CNN) - It’s not often President Obama calls out negative advertising from his political opponents, but it appears one in particular caught his eye Monday Night.

Obama told a crowd in Jamestown, North Carolina that he was watching Monday Night Football when he saw an ad that he thought suggested he was for raising taxes on the middle class.

    Uh, it isn't called campaigning for re-election when he is out *discussing legislation* that is *currently before* the Congress. It's called taking a leadership role in getting bills passed that are favored by most Americans.

    "Obama does not intend on raising middle class taxes until well into his second term"

    Cite your source. And no, you need to cite something reputable and credible, not Red State or World Net Daily and their demagoguery conspiracy theory nonsense.

    "It is amazing that the wealthiest 1% is willing to put almost one half of a billion dollars in the hands of the turd blossom."

    Better than putting it in the hands of their employees as far as they'er concerned.

    Agreed. He would not raise taxes on the middle class. But, the Republican Party is set to do just that when they vote down the payroll tax cut bill simply because it is going to have a tax increase attached to it. Ooooh, you're in trouble.

    Republicans are keeping fact checkers working 24-7. If lying was a criminal offense, there would be no republibagger party.

    "Obama does not intend on raising middle class taxes until well into his second term,"

    Wow, that's a lot like the NRA nonsense of how they know the President will go after gun rights because he hasn't yet. It's pretty clear that most of you brainwashed deathcult members do not understand logic, and instead specialize in mind-reading. How much do you get paid to post such drivel?

    capitalist making billions of dollar,s selling products made in communist china,then putting the profits in off shore banking to pay no taxes,investing billions of dollar,s building plants in communist china employing chinese then calling obama a communist for wanting to create jobs in america HELLO

    GG - your post is right on point. The reality is these political parties have the average person so emotional about little kindergarden issues that we don't see the rich banks, , corporate, and special interest walking out the back door with all the taxpayer money. We rather feel good about our abilty to argue Republican or Democrat, when in reality it a conversation for puppets. You can't say Hello loud enough for them to hear you –sooooo sad.
