Obama's Most Dangerous Promise

In a lengthy piece comparing the Obama campaign of 2012 to his triumphant 2008 campaign, the Wall Street Journal reported that the president told aides that his most important first term mistake involved his efforts to work with Republicans and he promised he'd never repeat that mistake in the future.

Ironically, a simultaneous report indicated the president's plans to spend less time campaigning for Congressional Democrats, in view of fading prospects for his party to recapture the House. In other words, Obama insists he won't try to work with Republicans even while his own campaign acknowledges the GOP is likely to hold the House. This guarantees more gridlock if Obama wins-a good thing, perhaps, in preventing disastrous legislative initiatives, but a very dangerous situation with America speeding directly toward fiscal crisis with burgeoning debt and looming national bankruptcy.
