Obamawellian

This is just too good not to post about:

President Barack Obama’s Orwellian rhetoric has become absolutely pathological. And it’s become so blatant that you can almost guarantee that the truth is the exact opposite of what he says. To wit:

The president insisted he had no intention of taking over Chrysler and General Motors.

He did.

The president calls “cap-and-trade” environmental legislation a “market-based” approach, based on “sound science.”

It is not.

The president claims his health care reform plan is not “socialized medicine.”

It is.

He claims it won’t harm private insurance.

It will.

He claims service won’t be rationed.

But to control costs as he proposes, it must be. (Even top aides concede the point.)

Mr. Obama says he supports “democracy” in Latin America.

How can he? He also supports the Marxist ways of Manuel Zelaya, legally removed from Honduras’ presidency by the constitutional actions of the legislative and judicial branches.
