Obama's Dissolving Credibility:
"Here's a tip: when Barack Obama says, 'So let me set the record straight,' he is about to lie to you about his past. Thus, in rebutting the claim that he wants a 'government takeover' of medicine, he assures us that 'My guiding principle is, and always has been, that consumers do better when there is choice and competition.' So how is it that he was recorded only six years ago describing himself as an advocate of a Canadian style 'single payer' system-the very opposite of 'choice and competition'?

Hasn't the overall theme of Obama's administration-from the auto bailouts to cap-and-trade-been the relentless expansion of government power at the expense of individual freedom?

During the Jeremiah Wright affair, the American people gave Obama the benefit of the doubt because they couldn't bring themselves to believe that such a respectable, well-spoken man could be such a brazen liar-and because they liked the inspirational, post-racial illusion he presented. They wanted to believe, and that's the kind of audience a sharp operator like him needs.

But now the spell is broken, his audiences are beginning to ask the tough questions-and Obama's credibility will continue to dissolve as his lies are exposed."
