FLASHBACK: Obama Slams Bush Tax Cuts For 'Millionaires And Billionaires' (VIDEO)

Entertaining mash-up from the video team at Huff Po.


NEW YORK -- Over the past three months, Obama described the Bush-era program that he's now adopting as his own as "tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires" no fewer than 50 times, according to a review of his stump speeches, weekly addresses, and comments to campaign donors and members of the news media.

The rhetoric was deliberate: Obama was trying to cast Republicans as the party of the wealthy while his fellow Democrats represented the middle class.

He used that rhetoric at campaign events across the country, from Los Angeles and Las Vegas to Des Moines, Iowa, and Richmond, Virginia.

Taylor runs the world's largest currency hedge fund with assets under management of around $8.5 billion.

"I would argue that by the middle of next year, we will be in a recession and our fiscal hands will be tied," he said.

Obama has rolled over or compromised in their favor on almost every promise he made to get elected that involves special interests. When he slammed the tax cuts for the elite it was nothing but verbal camouflage. The rich were always going to keep their tax cuts and he knew it. .
