The fiscal cliff deal, however sucky, still provides entertainment in the form of libs demanding the Bush tax rates save the economy.—

Since President George W. Bush implemented his tax cuts in 2001, Democrats have done nothing but hammer the cuts as a gift to wealthy Americans — until now, that is. As part of the fiscal cliff deal, the tax cuts will remain permanent for households making less than $450,000 annually. And suddenly, Dems are crawling all over themselves to take credit for the cuts. Last night, GOP Rep. Louis Gohmert zinged them for their about-face, thanking them for finally acknowledging that the tax cuts in fact benefit the middle class. Others are following suit, calling attention to Democrats’ hypocrisy:
Remember when Dems said Bush tax cuts only help the rich? Why then do EVERYONE'S taxes go up if they expire?—

Democrats voting for this deal are now admitting that 99% of the Bush tax cuts they previously opposed were a good thing.—

Wait — tax cuts are good? That can’t be right!
Ah, that explains it.
Democrats spent the last 10 years attacking the Bush tax cuts and yesterday voted to make them permanent for almost everyone.—

NOW the Bush tax cuts a must for Dems? Bush was called everything in the book when he rolled them out. Hypocritical Freaks or just bi-polar?—

Fiscal cliff bill makes permanent George W's tax cuts for 98% of filers. Does that mean Dems. believe Bush tax cuts were right after all?—

Sure is funny how that works.
Fasten your seatbelt, Mr. President.
