“Profiles in Courage and Taxes”

Former President George H.W. Bush was honored yesterday with the 2014 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award for his deeply unpopular decision to raise taxes in 1990 despite a well-known 1988 presidential campaign pledge of “read my lips, no new taxes.”

Here’s my suggestion: If a Democratic president — or member of the House or Senate — ever decides to cut taxes, then he (or she) should receive the same award.

Or better still, give the award to any Democrat who actually joins Republicans in trying to find out how the Obama IRS abused its power by targeting conservative Tea Party special interest groups.
