President Barack Obama has gone on the charm offensive, claiming Republicans are demonstrating a "lack of faith in the American people."
...To begin with, what mysterious brand of public policy has Obama employed that exemplifies this sacred trust between public officials and the common citizen?
...The same faith in Americans surely precipitates the administration's defense of censorship (even book banning) to ensure that the citizenry is protected from the despicable reach of political ads funded by corporations. People, you see, are too gullible and too uninformed to withstand the force of Fox News — much less Wal-Mart.
Similarly, that faith has led to the 20-year explosion of paternalistic regulations (often with the help of Republicans) that propose to regulate everything from the size of candy to tanning salons to fast-food restaurants to the pressure in your showerhead.
(Don't forget about the eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil, banned, incandescent lightbulb.)
The Twit-in-Chief places his faith in his god: Mo' Gummint--which resembles Baal.
Too bad for him.
