There's scoring an own goal...

and then there's picking it up with your hands and tackling your own goaltender with a dive into the net.

Sure the President's plan to tax 529 College savings accounts was a bit of cynical political theater.  The measure itself was not expected to pass, but instead be a talking point about how mean the GOP is.

But instead...  529 savings accounts are a primary means of upper middle class, often Blue state living parents.  IE a core demo of the president's coalition.

But it gets worse.

See not only were other members of his party kept out of the loop, but the President himself uses these accounts for his own daughter's future education.

That's just amusing, and sadly typical.
