Here is video from President Obama’s Press Conference today where he falsely claimed that Republicans had opposed extending tax cuts on the “middle-class.” Obama made the statement as he said he would oppose extending tax cuts for the wealthiest people in 2012, “just as I suspect the Republican Party may fight to end the middle-class tax cuts that I have championed, and that they’ve opposed.”
Republicans never opposed middle-class tax cuts in this battle. Instead, the GOP wanted to extend the Bush Tax Cuts for ALL Americans. Obama is already trying to frame the 2012 Campaign around this issue. He is shameless in saying whatever suits his purposes, whether there’s an ounce of truth in it or not.
