Great article from Mona Charen of NRO at Real Clear Politics:

Obama’s Strange Habit of Denying What He’s Doing

Two wonderful paragraphs:

With the public suitably frightened and biddable, Obama now strides to the podium and begins prescribing particular government policies. (Have you noticed his troubling habit of denying what he is doing? For example, in his speech to Congress he said he asked for the stimulus bill “not because I believe in bigger government — I don’t.” And in recommending a bailout of mortgage holders, he denied that any relief would go to “speculators” or those who “bought more house than they could afford” but that is exactly what the package will do.)

And this:

Obama, like other liberals, wants to dispense with experimentation and debate (which he dismisses as the “the same old gridlock and partisan posturing”) and sluice an enormous liberal/socialist wish list, to include single-payer health care, universal college education, and so-called green energy into law.

Obama’s revisionist economic history is dishonest.  Combine this with his “trust me” attitude of anecdotal non-analysis  and the Democratic majority will ruin this great country.
