Giving Credit Where It's Due
Excellent, excellent job by ABC's Charles Gibson in asking this question at Wednesday night's debate (you only need to watch the first 3 minutes or so of this clip to see what I mean). Unfortunately, Obama resorts to a drawn-out non-answer that proves he doesn't really understand or care about how the Laffer Curve works; instead, he just wants to "soak the rich," even if it lowers tax revenues, because it feels "fair."
But Gibson takes him to task and states the question a second time after he fails to answer it, which is quite shocking. As much as I hate the MSM's constant dumbed-down, class warfare portrayal of economic issues, ABC did an exceptional job Wednesday night.
