Yes, There Are a Few Things He Forgot To Mention. by The Elephant's Child

The campaign just completed was one of the most dishonest I can ever remember. Obama’s standard campaign speech was one big whopper after another — so of course he claimed a mandate from the public for his desire to tax “the rich.” (I won!)  Democrats are always sure that will work perfectly to bring in lots more revenue because rates were higher under Bill Clinton and he had a surplus. Right? The dot-com bubble has apparently slipped stealthily away down the memory hole.

Obama not only did not tell anyone what he intended to do in a second term, he tried valiantly to prevent anyone from finding out. • “Obama Administration Hid Record Food stamp Numbers Until After Election” but now that the election is over, things are either being announced or leaking out. •”Interior Department Blocks Access to 1.6 Million Acres of Oil in the West“•”FBI Agents were Outraged That Obama Decided to Delay Petraeus’ Resignation” • “Report: EPA Delaying Job-Killing Regulations to Aid Obama Re-Election“• “Hours After Obama Victory—Administration Backs UN Arms Treaty.” •”State Department grants senators 2-day access to Benghazi documents while they’re out of town.” •”Ten Little-Known Consequences of a Second Obama Term.”• “War Plans for Mali Leaked.“• “Russia Demands U.S. Flexibility on Missile Defense” •”Obama To Defense Contractors: Skip The Pink Slips.”

You heard all these policies and regulations being debated and explained by the Obama campaign, didn’t you? And you knew all about Valerie •”Jarrett’s Secret Talks Raise Questions About Obama’s Intentions,” and •”Obama Administration Hid Secret Meetings With Iran From Israel,“and •”Pentagon releases Benghazi timeline: took 19 hours to respond.” And to cap it all off, there’s •”Al Qaeda Weighs In on the Post-Election Landscape.”

So you see the campaign was all about whether or not we wanted Obama to tax the rich and not tax the rest of us, and about what a really horrible person Mitt Romney is.  So of course we gave Obama a “mandate” to raise taxes on the nasty rich people, and it’s just a surprise that  he sort of forgot to tell us about the rest of this stuff. I wonder what else he forgot to tell us about?
