WASHINGTON--President Obama, on five Sunday shows:
*Is undecided on increasing troop levels in Afghanistan
*Insisted there are no tax boosts in his health care propsals though there is debate over this.
*Downplayed assertions, one from former President Jimmy Carter, that racism is at the core of criticism of him.
*Declined to say whether he would sign a bill stripping ACORN, the controversial community organizing group, of federal funding.
*Scolded television bookers for making stars out of people who engage in "rude" behavior rather than civil discourse. My story on this here.
