Barack Obama was against raising the debt limit before he was for it, of course. In 2006, then-Sen. Obama said such a move shifted “the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” Giddyup, kiddies, the president has changed his mind and saddled you up. ... Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was a train wreck on Jon Stewart's Monday show. She steadfastly evaded Mr. Stewart's attempt to pin her down over the selective — and we would argue patently illegal — enforcement of ObamaCare. It's further proof of an administration that works overtime to evade the truth it refuses to tell. ... MSNBC's Chris Hayes says our constitutional form of government is flawed because it restricts the government's ability to act quickly enough in some cases. But as's Michael Schaus reminds, what Mr. Hayes appears to be pining for — giving the state carte blanche authority to fast-track its wants — is nothing more than fascism. No wonder so few watch MSNBC. ... The Washington Post says the results of the presidential election in Azerbaijan were announced a full day before balloting even took place. Anybody doubt that U.S. “progressives” are licking their lips, carefully taking notes and trying to figure out how to mimic the feat?
