If Obama does anything well, it's setting up straw men and knocking them down. Many of his key points are about things that no one is even talking about.
A good example is raising taxes on the middle class...that's absurd on its face. If any taxes are getting raised on the middle class it's his policies. Extending the tax rates from the Bush years, isnt raising tax rates, it's leaving the tax rate that have been in place for 12 years. Allowing that to expire and going back to the old rates, DOES increase the rates on the middle class, and Romney wants to leave them where they are. Why would anyone want to increase taxes during a recession...as Obama himself stated in 2010.
