  •  The conflicting messages... (0+ / 0-)

    coming from the WH at least show there is some debate going in within it on how to proceed. Probably different advisors leaking different things and that's why you hear conflicting stories. Somebody needs to get a handle on that asap because it makes Obama Admin look weak and indecisive, with people floating trial balloons about caving on this issue.

    And does Obama think he's buying good media coverage if he extends all of the tax cuts? The first Fox News headline after the extension passes will be "Obama adds $700B to the Deficit."

    I would let all of the tax cuts expire. Then pass the Obama Middle Class Tax Cuts. Otherwise, Bush's name will still be attached to them and Obama will get no credit. Too many voters think he raised taxes last year as it is, when he actually cut them, so messaging and how you name things is important.
