The money has to come from someplace.”  “Obama is now just as concerned with politics as he is with substance,” Democratic pollster and Fox News commentator Doug Schoen told Newsmax after the president’s speech today. “This is as much about the election next year as it is about balancing the budget and creating jobs this year.  “Class warfare and tax increases are all about setting up the Republicans for political attacks, not bipartisan cooperation — as the rhetoric in today's speech made clear,” Schoen said.  Schoen’s view that Obama’s speech, in which the president promised to shave $3 trillion over the next decade from the deficit, in part by raising $1.5 trillion in new tax revenue mostly on the backs of wealthier Americans, was a political exercise rather than a viable policy proposal was widely echoed across the political spectrum.  Read more......
