Click here to find out what has me so amazed and disgusted.
For those that don't know George Stephanopoulos was an adviser to Bill Clinton, so would assume that he is at least on the same side of the political room as the President, if not quite so far to the left of it. I admire the fact that he doggedly pursued the issue of the tax here in this article, and I am especially amazed and disgusted by Obama telling the man that referencing the dictionary was an obvious indication that Stephanopoulos was somehow "stretching".
I don't know about you, but when I go to the dictionary, it's so I can look the person I am having a dispute with in the eye and say "Here it is in black and white, so in your face, you are unquestionably incorrect"....In a gentle and loving way of course....
"I don't think I'm making it up," Mr. Stephanopoulos said. He then had the temerity to challenge the Philologist in Chief, with an assist from Merriam-Webster. He cited that dictionary's definition of "tax"—"a charge, usually of money, imposed by authority on persons or property for public purposes."Mr. Obama: "George, the fact that you looked up Merriam's Dictionary, the definition of tax increase, indicates to me that you're stretching a little bit right now. . . ."
