It's because the left talks to the left. The more contradictory or counterintuitive it sounds to us, the more sense it makes to them.
Sen. John Kerry and his wife are among the 400 richest Americans. He had “a plan to tax the rich.”

According to analysis by the Argus Group, a well respected tax law and economics firm, the Kerrys’ average tax rate would only increase to 15.2 percent while many small businesses' average rate would rise by 4.0 percentage points to as high as 35 to 40 percent.

Last year, Mr. Kerry and his wife paid only 13.4 percent of their declared $5.5 million income in federal taxes.

President and Mrs. Bush, whose income was only 15 percent of the Kerrys’, paid a tax rate more than twice as high, 27.7 percent.

Mr. Kerry was not proposing increased taxes on those who are already rich but increasing taxes on those who are trying to become rich making it more difficult for people to join his club of the very wealthy.

Sen. John Edwards, Kerry's running mate, shared this tax hypocrisy. Mr. and Mrs. Edwards paid an average tax rate of only 5.1 percent on their reported $434,000 of income.

Obviously, the public is not given the full story.

Not one reporter asked Kerry about the hypocrisy of his tax positions.

Single-payer national health insurance is a system in which a single public or quasi-public agency organizes health financing, but delivery of care remains largely private.
When the government sets the prices and pays the doctors and hospitals, the system is no longer private.

Wrong. Obama is an idealistic community organizer trying to correct the problems of government from the outside.

What really frustrates me is the left convienently ignores the massive wealth of the Kennedys and John Kerry, a former democrat president and two democrat presidential candidates, but claim the American people simply can't "relate" to the wealth of a republican candidate.
What the heck is up with that?
Of course they do Miss Carol, because they are for the poooor, with Other People's Money??'Ol Joe didn't make his money being nice to people he controlled, he used his position as Ambassador to wangle the Scotch concession in this country. Something the Kennedy's hold to this day. John F'n Kerry marries well, he sure as heck didn't make it on his own...

You mean you are calling up the Super Barney excuse that one Democrat Representative made all of this happen from a minority position in Congress.
"My"? I didn't know you & Barney were that close.
Dave is right. Greedy bankers intentionally made bad loans to destroy their own businesses. It was all part of a racist plot to suck black people into buying houses that they couldn't afford. Meanwhile, the fix was in to bail out the greedy bankers with taxpayer money. Got it.

No. The goal is an open society where nobody needs to work, everything is available in abundance, drugs are legal and free, and you can have sex with whoever you want.

Liberals hate America, America's great history and Americans.

See? Obama wants to kill American suspects in American soil. Conservatives are against that. Where are the Liberals who claim protection of civil rights? The ones who gave Bush hell for attempting that?

NOWHERE!

Why? Because this time is a Liberal president doing it!

See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites!

They only want to protect the rights of Non-Americans. Liberals like a low self-esteem teen, hate themselves!

Focused in you having a fit about Obama's admitted drug use in college when you idiots elected a President twice that was such a drunk & cokehead well into his adult life.
Obama still smokes drugs, albeit legal drugs.

Perhaps if we make all drugs legal, Obama can medicate himself better and be a more effective leader.

Worth a try.
