Obama’s “Read my lips…” moment?

By all indications, Obama picked the worst possible approach to avoid the Democratic tax increase.  The two year extension just handed the Republicans their first campaign issue of the 2012 season.  His “All your moneys are belong to us.” leftist base is enraged.  Like George H. W. before him (a vast improvement over always being compared to Carter) it’s a lesson in being careful what you promise.  Although, under the policy of giving credit where credit is due, a hat tip for his recognizing a basically untenable position against the conservative juggernaut.  It doesn’t have to be two years of gridlock and political warfare.

Update:  Richard Fernandez says Obama is Mr. Lonely.  But he can always hang out with George Sr.
