Let’s go to the audio sound bites. This is this morning on Good Morning America, Robin Roberts interviewing Sarah Palin. During a discussion about the tax rate compromise, Robin Roberts said, “How do you reach compromise if you don’t flip-flop?”
PALIN: It is a flip-flop in his position on taxes because he was so adamant about not allowing the tax cut extension to take place for job creators, and then all of a sudden one day he was fine with it. So again, I appreciate that he — you can term it compromise. I term it flip-flop. I’m thankful that he did, but it’s still not good enough. It still allows the uncertainty there in the free market that our businesses, that I certainly as a businesswoman, that I fear. What we need is to make sure that we know what tax rates are gonna be so that we know if we can afford to hire people. It’s a lousy deal, and we can do better for the American public.
RUSH: Sarah Palin weighing in on the tax deal, it’s a lousy deal, could have been better, and she’s right, it could have been better if we’d have waited, but certainly the way the Democrats are talking about it, they sound Bushian, they sound Reagan, where taxes are concerned.
