Obama Backs Himself Into Corner On Taxes

Geesh! He's really spinning his wheels now. Barack Obama admits that raising taxes during an economic downturn would only make things worse:

Democrat Barack Obama says he would delay rescinding President Bush's tax cuts on wealthy Americans if he becomes the next president and the economy is in a recession, suggesting such an increase would further hurt the economy.

Okay, so if a tax increase would hurt the economy why do it at all? This has a McCain campaign commercial written all over it.
