Read his lips

Remember how candidate B. Hussein Obama kept telling us that no one who makes under 250 grand would ever see his or her taxes go up "one dime"?

Well ... President B. Hussein Obama now says he's "agnostic" 'bout raising taxes on individuals making less than $250,000:

President Barack Obama said he is “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit.

Obama, in a Feb. 9 Oval Office interview, said that a presidential commission on the budget needs to consider all options for reducing the deficit, including tax increases.

I'm sure Obama's advisers have apprised him of the fact - if he didn't know it already - that there is no way he's going to be able to dole out nanny-state goodies and tackle the deficit without going where the real money is, i.e., in the pockets of folks making less than $250,000.

If Obama wants to break what was his most oft-repeated campaign promise, I say bring it on (apologies to George W. Bush). It will make the 2012 presidential campaign très intéressant, to say the least
