Throughout the campaign and continuing into his presidency Obama has decried George W. Bush as an ideologue, a man blinded by preexisting conceptions and inured to evidence which contradicted his worldview. But it is the Obama team which in just seven months has perfected the art of denying or evading facts. It doesnt matter if the subject is small or large. It can be a domestic or foreign policy issue. The modus operandi is the same: dont give them the facts; theyve made up their minds.
We just witnessed Gates-gate the triumph of an ideologically driven narrative (America is as racist a country as its ever been) over facts. The president even told us he didnt know the facts and then proceeded to embroil us (and him) in a tale of racial profiling contrived out of thin air.
Thats the story of health care reform as well. For months we were told that Obamas health care reform would save money. Facts? None.

“Liberalism is nothing more than the ideological disguise of the will to power of some people who could not themselves be less Liberal.”
We have proof positive that the Fuhrer, Pelosi, Reid, Boxer, and their Elitist cohorts don’t give a damn about your health or your health care. It’s about power; their power over your lives. Mobilizing their Brown Shirts against the American people is proof positive!!! Vote Them Out
I agree. This is not something new. It is the status quo for Chicago and Cook County politicians and has been for nearly a century.
Even the vaunted Chicago Tribune fades in the face of a really top notch lie, plus dinner with the editor and a favor or two.
No, you have it backwards! The Obamassiah is not impervious to facts; rather, not all facts have completed bending to the Obamassiah’s will!
All lefties are impervious to empirical facts — it’s a Faith thing......
