Bush on taxes

"Most Americans feel overtaxed and I promise you the Democrat party is going to field a candidate who says I'm going to raise your tax.

"If they're going to say, oh, we're only going to tax the rich people, but most people in America understand that the rich people hire good accountants and figure out how not to necessarily pay all the taxes and the middle class gets stuck.

"We've had -- we've been through this drill before. We're only going to tax the rich and all you have to do is look at the history of that kind of language and see who gets stuck with the bill." - Bush

In the first place, it's rather frightening that a guy who holds the most powerful position in the world actually has a brain that produces this level of babbling drivel. You shouldn't raise taxes on the rich because they hire accountants? That's supposed to make sense?

In the second place, if Bush thinks that rich people use accountants to keep their taxes lower than they should be, why the hell did he cut them?
