Obama Teleprompter Malfunction

President Obama stepped in front of the cameras in the white House Rose Garden and gave an angry speech to promote his “plan for deficit reduction.”   But two, contradictory segments from his remarks are typical of the chaotic lack of focus and consistency usually associated with politics, not serious policy debate.

Most of the speech was about  his demand that Congress raise taxes on “millionaires and billionaires” which apparently includes anyone earning over $200,000.

In his most persuasive voice he pleaded:

This is not class warfare its math –  the money’s gong to have to come from some place.

Two minutes later he thundered:

It’s not about numbers on a ledger, not about figures on a spreadsheet…it’s about fairness.

He then finished up with his standard class warfare rhetoric, attacking “the wealthiest Americans.”
