So You Want Change? Then Obama-Clinton Is Not the Ticket
So You Want Change?
Then this ought to scare the heck out of you.
Here’s a quick list put together by the Giuliani Campaign on how the leading democrats intend to “change” America. It’s nice to see this in writing since the media is not so hip with reporting this:
DEMOCRATS WANT TO RAISE TAXES

At 2007 DNC Winter Meeting Hillary Told Democrats “I Want To Take” Oil Company Profits. “The other day the oil companies reported the highest profits in the history of the world. I want to take those profits and I want to put them into a strategic energy fund that will begin to fund alternative, smart energy. Alternatives and technologies that will begin to actually move us toward the direction of independence.” (Sen.

** Barack Obama’s Pledge To Raise Taxes
Obama Said “People Didn’t Need” The Tax Relief And Called For The Lapse Of The 2001 And 2003 Tax Cuts. “There is no doubt that the tax system has been skewed, and the Bush tax cuts, people didn’t need them and they weren’t even asking for them.

Obama Voted In Favor A Budget That Included The Largest Tax Increase In U.S. History. (S.Con.Res.21, CQ Vote #172: Adopted 52-40: R 2 – 40; D 48 – 0; I 2 – 0, 5/17/07; Obama Voted Yea)
Sorry, Barack– You are no Ronald Reagan.
Contrast the two leading democrats to Rudy Giuliani or Mitt Romney who actually have proven track records of success:
Mitt and Rudy have both done more than just talk about “change”— they have records to back them up.
Rudy Giuliani released a new ad in Florida today HERE.
UPDATE: Wizbang also has video of Rudy honoring families of fallen soldiers at a Veteran’s Memorial in Jacksonville, Florida. Some disgusting Leftist protester tries to interfere at one point.
