Read My Lips: Take 2

In 1988 when George H. W. Bush was running for President he used that ever so famous line “Read My Lips: No New Taxes.” This line, written by the elegant Peggy Noonan, has become a buzzphrase connected to the word “Liar.” He raised taxes and lost re-election.

    My Republican Congressman says Cap and Trade will be good for America.

    And, he caught the Green River Killer.

    Did you catch the Green River Killer?

    No, no you didn’t.

    You can hear his interview here.

    Dave Reichert SPEAKS: says Cap and Trade will be good for America
    He argued that the expense would not be what the Heartland Institute, Heritage Foundation, and Wall Street Journal were predicting. He argued that it would cost around $.48 per day and that we would have better national security, more nuclear, coal and refining capabilities, and a cleaner environment with the bill. He argued that the conservative arguments against were mistaken, and that Washington specifically would be better off even though the bill was imperfect.

    And, he caught the Green River Killer.

    Yeah, it took him a couple of decades, but better late than never.
    I hear Fox was thinking about making the Series 24 about Reichert. But instead of showing 24 hours in a day they would have to make each episode a year.

  2. John,

    You are attempting to derail the topic of this post. The topic is promises to not raise taxes. Broken promises.

    But you seem to think that Obama’s broken promise to not raise taxes (in a multitude of ways), is somehow OK.

    In regards to Reichert, I recommend you read this.

    A small excerpt:

    With China and other developing countries staunchly opposed to accepting any binding emissions requirements, we should be asking a more fundamental question: What, exactly, are we doing this for? If the goal of cap-and-trade is to reduce global temperatures by reducing global greenhouse gas concentrations, and if China and other leading carbon emitters continue to emit at will, then how can this supposed “problem” be solved?
