Summing Up Obama's "Recovery" Plot

Nicely phrased.

Mr Obama - who gives the impression of being considerably out of his depth in the economic maelstrom - talks of an "opportunity" to "reorganise our priorities". He gave a major speech last week in which he actually seemed to suggest that the present crisis had been caused by America's failure to develop a universal health care system and to attend to the impending environmental disaster of global warming ("we made the wrong choices"), and that by focusing on these matters a way can be found out of the country's economic problems.

Is he quite mad? Does he really believe that the banking crisis and the recession were some kind of divine retribution for the absence of universal health care, and excessive carbon emissions? ...

From Britain, where the same sort of thing is occurring.
