Quote:
Minneapolis attorney Andrew Brehm concisely captures the nature of Obama's performance:
He is simply intellectually dishonest. He is the master of the False Choice (pass the stimulus or do nothing & let the economy "tank"; socialize health care or "stand pat" -- he said that last night), the Straw Man (the approach of putting moral "dogma" above "science"), the Scapegoat (those at the "commanding heights of our economy" (preface to his Budget) and the sly Non Sequitur (the breathtaking argument that to revive our economy and control spending, the government must take over health care and energy and expand federal spending on education). He deploys them in every argument he makes.

And did you see his response to the stem cell question he got last night? It was rich. Somebody asked him if he personally "struggled" with the morality of the decision he made. He said, yes, indeed he did. Say what? You just got done lecturing us that it was just a matter of following "science" rather than being slaves to "dogma." He's confused about his own moral confusion!
So says an attorney from Minnesota. How far off-track is he, really? Obviously, he's not a run-of-the-mill pundit. Scary, huh?

Power Line - A word on Obama's presser (http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2009/03/023160.php - broken link)

And it appears someone else has more to say re subj, the link to that is at the end of the above link. In other words, you'll have to open to see. Doh.

Another gem from Powerline:

Quote:
It must be very strange to be President Bush. A man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius, he can’t get anyone to notice. He is like a great painter or musician who is ahead of his time, and who unveils one masterpiece after another to a reception that, when not bored, is hostile
Can't help but trust people with that kind of judgment.

Could I just post the thread starter's source "Powerline" one more time?

Again this is what they say about Bush

How could you start a thread using this source and not want to go crawl under a rock?
