President Obama could be crippling his own reelection effort by making a deal with Republicans to extend all of the Bush-era tax cuts, Democratic strategists and liberal groups said Monday.
A two-year extension of tax rates ushered in by President George W. Bush nearly a decade ago, would ensure a resumption of todays fiery debate in 2012, when Obama is expected to reapply for his job, strategists in both parties said.

BS! The left has the most liberal President ever and they are unhappy? No way.
I'm all choked up, and need a kleenex for these tears...
...oh, wait, no tears...
So much for cutting debt spending and paygo and all that. The GOP has no intention of cutting spending it seems.
Do you really believe they ever did?
It’s not a done deal yet.
They will want to put Bloomberg in to usher in full global communism.
“Dumber than a box of rocks” is inadequate to describe Obama. I’m sure that his strategy for re-election is to be able to contrast himself with his Republican challenger by opposing “Tax Cuts for the Rich” as a re-election strategy. He has achieved this by having the Bush tax rates expire just after the election. He simply doesn’t understand that this positions him as an ineffective leader who will have accomplished nothing in four years of his presidency.
They don’t care he caved. The dems despise rich people doncha know and themselves I suppose and love the peter pan idea.
I’d have to wonder if Bloomberg could be any worse.
Next stop, Secretary-General of the United Nations.
And his ineligibility for that position is irrelevant, and anyone who says it is, is a racist.
When he campaigns for that position he'll be a Kenyan and therefore eligible.
I pray that the Secret Service keeps up their good work and protects B0 to maximum of their abilities and then some.
I want to see B0 go out upright, as the grossly incompetent perfect storm of Affirmative Action, quotas, the race-norming of scholastic grades etc...
...as opposed to not upright.
Those dirty Godless backstabber Stalinist lefties are capable of anything now that the rational thinking members of the electorate have B0 dialed in as a total goof.
NObama’s re-election ws toast when he jammed NObama HELLTH care down our throats.
He hates the work, and so does his wife. In 2 years he can embark on an Adore Me tour with an indefinite run. He can criticize other presidents, make trouble, run up a tab to the moon, and have personal security detail free of charge. Hollywood awaits.
Why should he run for a second term?
It also is angering the left wing of the Democratic Party, which already has a long list of complaints about Obama.
President Obama has shown a complete refusal to fight Republicans throughout his presidency even when the public is on his side and millions of his former supporters are now growing disappointed and infuriated by this refusal to fight, said Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee.
The PCCC on Monday afternoon circulated quotes from 2008 Obama campaign staffers who expressed disillusionment with the president for agreeing to extend tax cuts for the wealthy amid signs that the White House and Republicans were edging closer to a deal.
Obama is demobilizing the troops and demoralizing the public right before he seeks reelection, Green said.
They cannot ever be happy. That is what Liberalism is all about.
You have about as much of a chance finding a happy liberal as you would finding a Jewish Pope.
They wanted an appeaser who would bend over to Iran and North Korea so they should not be surprised to get a guy who will bend over to anyone.
