Republicans Outraged Obama Is Liberal

Republicans are outraged over President Obama’s Second Quadrennial Inaugural Address because it’s liberal. Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS even made an ad making the case. The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur explains why this line of attack is comical.

Obama senior adviser David Plouffe predicted that the fiscal cliff negotiations are “going to get hairy” in the coming weeks, saying President Barack Obama is committed to achieving the elusive “big deal” on taxes and spending he and Speaker of the House John Boehner have tried to strike for more than 18 months.

In post-election remarks at the University of Delaware, Plouffe warned of “paralysis” if both parties remain beholden to their base, saying Obama is looking for a deal that sets the country on the right fiscal path for a 10- to 20-year period.

"The only way that gets done is for Republicans again to step back and get mercilessly criticized by Grover Norquist and the Right, and it means that Democrats are going to have to do some tough things on spending and entitlements that means that they’ll criticized on by their left," Plouffe said at his alma mater in conversation with former McCain campaign manager Steve Schmidt."*

Cenk Uygur breaks down Obama senior adviser David Plouffe’s words that seem to show the president aims to in fact lower what the wealthy pay, raise what the poor and middle class pay, and cut entitlement programs. Will Obama buckle on negotiations, and does he want to?

Watch the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mB7I0vpwT7M&feature=plcp

President Clinton explains Mitt Romney’s $5 trillion tax cut and how middle class families with children will get an average tax increase of $2,000 to pay for $250,000 in tax cuts for multi-millionaires.

As President Clinton shares:
"In the first debate, Governor Romney said that he wasn’t really going to cut taxes on upper income people—he only wanted to cut taxes for middle class people. That’s not true."
