One of the patterns we are seeing out of the Obama administration is a tendency to spin a policy one way while the actual policy contradicts the headlines. The we-won’t-torture except-when-we-feel-it executive order being a good example.
Now the headlines trumpet that Obama is going to withdraw from Iraq. But if you read the details a little more you’ll discover that he’s planning to leave up to 50,000 troops there.
Oh, okay. Right that makes sense.
But, of course, this is the same guy who is promising to spend trillions of dollars and has the gall to say in a speech to Congress that he doesn’t believe in big government. You start to get the feeling he thinks he can lie with impunity.
