Norquist blasts Obama

(A team of Sun reporters is at the Republican National Convention this week in St. Paul.)

ST. PAUL — Grover Norquist, movement conservative extraordinaire, spoke to assembled Arizona delegates this morning at breakfast. Some Nevada delegates, not having their own breakfasts, have joined the Arizona folks.

Norquist blasted Obama for proposing to raise taxes, especially on dividens and capital gains, which would de-value equities, he said.

Interesting lines: Democrats (on taxes) are like teenage boys on a prom date. They keep asking the same question in different ways.

We want to change Washington. They want to change America.

Norquist once called Obama "John Kerry with a tan."
