Mr. Oblivious to Evidence Obama should be the last man to talk about keeping others honest.
By Mona Charen
The final moments of President Obamas press conference last week have gotten the most attention, and some of the presidents supporters have wondered whether his big-footed interference in the Harvard professors melodrama has overshadowed his push for health-care reform.
But the presidents response to Gatesgate actually sheds a lot of light on his approach to health care and other issues, for this reason: Obama adopts his positions before knowing what he is talking about.
To be fair, Obama admitted as much, at least as far as Gates was concerned. I dont know all the facts, he acknowledged, before launching into a lecture (later retracted) about the stupidity of the Cambridge police (while misrepresenting what had happened).
How could he not have known all the facts? Press secretary Robert Gibbs mentioned on Fox News Sunday that the Gates matter was one of the issues the White House press operation had briefed the president on before the press conference.
This is worth bearing in mind as the country takes a good, hard look at the presidents plans for health-care reform. On the day he announced support for embryonic-stem-cell research, Mr. Obama also signed an executive memorandum declaring that in the Obama administration, We [will] make scientific decisions based on facts, not ideology. And yet, his health-care proposals or rather the congressional ideas he has endorsed seem to skirt facts and evidence at every turn.
