It seems the Democrat party just doesn’t have a whole lot to run on this year. Their convention this week has been either a big rally for the mythical “War on Women”/ a celebration of abortion and a “we hate rich people”* fest. After all, the only alternative to this farce is to actually talk about their record. But, that’s probably not a good idea for Team Obama given the high unemployment, a $16 trillion debt, high energy prices, an unpopular healthcare plan, etc. ad nauseum. The Obama-Biden record is one of failure across the board, therefore they have to rely on distractions like these.
One of the pretty faces chosen to deliver the class warfare message is Eva Longoria of Desperate Housewives fame.
Actress Eva Longoria doesn’t need to take a break — a tax break, that is.
“Mitt Romney would raise taxes on middle-class families to cut his own — and mine,” Longoria, best known for her role on the TV show “Desperate Housewives,” said Thursday in a speech at the Democratic National Convention. “And that’s not who we are as a nation, and let me tell you why: because the Eva Longoria who worked at Wendy’s flipping burgers — she needed a tax break. But the Eva Longoria who works on movie sets does not.”
First of all, the claim that Mitt Romney will raise taxes on the middle class to cut taxes for the rich is not true. Secondly, if Eva Longoria does not want her tax cut, she is more than welcome to give that money back to the Treasury. Third, who does Eva Longoria create jobs? A hint for her, it’s not the person at Wendy’s flipping burgers.
Who the hell does Eva Longoria think she is to tell any American whether or not they “need” a tax cut!? It’s our money in the first damn place.
*They only hate rich people who don’t donate to Obama-Biden or the Democrat Party. Some could call the process by which some rich people donate to Democrats as “paying their protection money”. It works just like a good old-fashioned mafia shakedown.
