I had the displeasure of listening to Obama’s take on the debt crisis recently while on a business trip. His preferred rhetoric is to say, “We want to help kids, while Republicans want to keep tax breaks for corporate jets.” In other words, he’s not the least bit serious, and he prefers to win the debate without engaging his opponents, preferring instead various sophistries, half-truths, abusive definitions of terms, and other foolishness that would not get someone into the octofinals of a high school debate tournament.
Why is this? He has no life experience and, like so many on the left, assumes the conclusion and assumes also that his opponents are malevolent and evilly motivated. He’s a joke, in spite of his Great Uniter pretensions.
