Tone-deaf, patronizing, and mendacious

Il Duce finds it amusing that American citizens were out in the streets protesting the absurd level of taxation to which they are subjected by our overbearing government.
President Barack Obama said Thursday he's amused by the anti-tax tea party protests that have been taking place around Tax Day.

Obama told a fundraiser in Miami that he's cut taxes, contrary to the claims of protesters.

"You would think they'd be saying thank you," he said.
There are a couple of problems with Il Duce's reaction and his assertion that he cut taxes.
  1. Tax cuts?  WTF?  Did I miss some major piece of legislation in the past year and a half that provided for a smaller tax burden for the American people?  And why does the media let him get away with dropping whoppers like this?

  2. By preventing the parts of the Bush tax cuts that expired in 2010 from being extended, he assured that the taxes of virtually every American will rise for this tax year.  Paint it as you will, but that is hardly a "tax cut".

  3. The first wave of Obamacare begins soon.  No one has identified just how much taxes will rise in the next few years to support that abortion, but rise they will.

  4. We ARE overtaxed...and, no, it's NOT funny.

  5. The fact that a sitting President of the United States would express amusement at the concept of Americans assembled in protest of government policies is mind boggling.  It's further proof that he doesn't give two shits about the wishes of the serfs and is only about acquiring and wielding power.
Did I miss anything?

Il Duce's mind-blowing disdain for ordinary Americans is beyond comprehension.  Were it not for a complacent lapdog media and a tuned-out populous, this guy would be rode out of Washington on a rail!

Will the sheeple EVER wake up?
