3. I'm liking what I'm hearing.

I like what he said about how he didn't need another tax cut when six seniors are going to have to make up the difference with cuts in their health coverage.

I LIKE that a LOT. I liked what I heard him SAY about how he wouldn't stand for more tax cuts for the wealthy. They can just start paying up a little more. Contribute to help their country which has been awfully good to them. I like how he even said most of the affluent would agree. And I think aside from the greedy on Wall Street, most do. How else do you explain 81% saying we should raise taxes on the wealthy in the latest polls I've seen this week?

But he quoted from the wrong part of the Bible - not "there but for fortune go I." It should have been straight from the Beatitudes - BLESSED ARE THE POOR (NOT the rich!!!!).
