Obama’s reverse course on the debt

By Jennifer Rubin

President Obama’s debt plan is a mix of phantom cuts and huge tax increases. Moreover, it represents a giant step backward from the debt-ceiling positions he took over the summer. In short, it’s designed to ameliorate the left, not make a deal or recapture independent voters. How this helps his electoral prospects is a mystery.

The president’s hoping his appeal to class warfare overcomes most people’s common sense. Unlike him, however, I question whether the American people have much common sense. They elected him, didn’t they?
