That's The Ticket

You've probably already heard about Jon Lovitz' tirade against the president:
The actor said he’s a Democrat and voted for Obama, but now he’s mad as hell at the president’s plan to raise taxes on the rich -- and his rant has the Web buzzing. The comic called Obama a “[bleep]ing a-hole... for saying the rich don't pay their taxes." Lovitz delivered his invective after assuring the audience “I voted for the guy” and even expressed admiration for Obama’s rise from “nothing.” “He had no father -- he is mixed-race, which is a burden… and the guy ends up going to Harvard, and he's the president of the United States.” Lovitz gave Obama no slack for turning against his fellow millionaires, however. “This whole thing with Obama saying the rich don't pay their taxes is f---ing bulls---,” he said. “First they say to you… ‘The United States of America, you can do anything you want -- go for it! So then you go for it and you make it and everyone's like, ‘[Bleep] you!'”
It's ok, Jon--I don't understand it, either.

I don't particularly like Obama, but he wasn't exactly coy about his desire to tax the "rich" more if he got elected.

See this:


as an example from June, 2008.

Did Jon Lovitz think that Obama was lying about this? If so, why? Raising taxes on the "rich" has been core to Democratic presidential platforms for quite some time.
