It's a campaign year and thus far each week or two has seen the Obama campaign harping on one thing or other.
It's been the War on Women, Racisim, and this week it's back to the Buffet Rule for solving the federal budget crisis. The Buffet Rule's main focus is that the rich should pay more in taxes. Funny how this works since Warren Buffet's company owes and has owed, over 1 billion dollars in back taxes. This is just not information coming from strictly conservative Buffet haters, even the Huffington Post took note.
But as I mentioned, this "make the rich pay more" is merely this week's DNC campaign meme. One CBS reporter wrote that by his count, the most recent Buffet Rule push is the 20th time Obama has used this in speeches since the State of the Union. Watch for all the spokemen heading for cable news shows pushing this once again. It's gotten so there are a handful of things in the regular rotation.
