"I Lost My Home"

Here's a long essay from an ex-Obama speechwriter.

There are a couple of lines which are significant:

Perhaps this is why I found the initial mocking of Joe so offensive and I realized an old line applied: “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party; the Democratic Party left me.”

The party I believed in wouldn’t look down on working people under any circumstance. And Joe the Plumber is right. This is the absolutely worst time to raise taxes on anyone: the rich, the middle class, the poor, small businesses and corporations.

That's the clincher, although her take-away isn't bad, either:

When people say how excited they are about this election, I can now say, “Maybe for you. But I lost my home.”

According to Charlie, Obama has now told us that tax-increases will hit those earning $75K.

She won't be the ONLY one to lose her home.

Your first mistake was taking anything Sykes says seriously.

And your mistake is believing The One gives a crap about middle and lower-income folk.

His "tax breaks" are a lie, pure and simple.

So this is all Charlies fault?
