On his otherwise very thorough website, Obama has no subject heading on his issues page for TAXES, despite the fact that it is the oldest and easiest attack the Republicans make in every election.  Why don't they address it explicitly?  I'm sure it's discussed in the context of the economy, etc., but this seems pretty stupid to me.

Me too.
