Orwellian Language and History Abuse in Aisle 1

Pelosi hedges on tax cuts

Get this statement by Speaker Nancy Pelosi:

“What I believe the American people deserve is a tax cut for the middle class,” Pelosi said. “And without getting into procedure and timing and process, what we’re going to do is to say at the end of the day the extension of the Obama middle-income tax cuts will take place, and that’s what I have to say on the subject.”

the "extension of the Obama middle-income tax cuts"?

Really now, with a straight face she said the "extension of the Obama middle-income tax cuts"?

Madame Speaker don't you mean an extension of the BUSH tax cuts.

Really, go ahead Madam Speaker, you can say it without the nonsensical historical revisionism. Obama was not president in 2001 or 2003 and was only a US Senator in 2005 so no matter how you slice it they are not and cannot be "his" tax cuts.

Next thing you know the Democrats will be taking credit for success in the War in Iraq.

Oh, nevermind.
