Great line by Dr. Charles Krauthammer on the O'Reilly program -- Obama may be the first politician to experience death by punctuation.

As it turns out, he formulated that notion in his newpaper column:

"Instead of simply admitting he was wrong, he went Clintonian, explaining that the pledge only applied to certain specified plans — which he now says he meant all along. Alas, this is one case of death by punctuation.“Period” means without caveats, modifications, loopholes or escape hatches."
