(VA Daily Press): Bush also said high taxes on the rich are a failed strategy because "the really rich people figure out how to dodge taxes anyway."
This has been ignored by the corporate media as well as the blogosphere. Is it because they write it off as a "Bushism" or gaffe? (No, it's not a gaffe. He said it five other times, as documented on www.whitehouse.gov. ) Do people think he's slow and therefore less tactful? If it were his father people would think it a big deal, revealing an attitude of wealthy entitlement.
