Barack Obama is still trying to recover from that conversation with Joe the Plumber in Ohio. Friday in Florida the Democratic presidential nominee talked about his plan to increase taxes on wealthier Americans to fund a tax cut for middle-class Americans. Obama said he’s got nothing against being rich or pursuing the American dream. He said he only wants to make sure everyone has a shot at the dream. He also took a shot at Republicans John McCain and Sarah Palin for calling his tax plan socialistic. “I don’t know when they decided they wanted to make a virtue out of selfishness,” Obama said. Selfish? Tough way to characterize Americans resistant to Washington taking an even larger portion of their hard-earned income.
