Duhbya lies about his taxes again

This is a lie:

Allowing the cuts to expire would add $1,900 to the tax bill of a family of four with an annual income of $60,000, Bush said.
There might be one family somewhere that matches these numbers, but the clear intent is, as usual, deceit.

This is the typical Bushist bullshit that lies with the word average:
All told, he added, 43 million families with kids would have to pay an average tax increase of $2,323.
It's really helpful that Bill Gates has kids, but Duhbya is probably also counting Paris Hilton and Warren Buffett's adult "kids".

Note also that CNN/Money reports these bogus numbers with complete abject credulity. After eating seven years of bullshit, you'd think they would have learned how stupid that is.

President's have the option to disclose anything they want.

"We don't believe in one set of rules for us and another set for everybody else," the former president said at a news conference in New York.

At Wednesday’s debate, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., called on all presidential libraries to disclose their donors. Obama has filed a bill in the Senate that would require disclosure of all contributions to presidential libraries -- including Clinton's.

"I think it's important not only that all this information is disclosed, but I also think that we need to have a situation in which we are disclosing the funneling of large donors," Obama said.

You Go Obama! Write that Bill!
