President Obama’s fuzzy math—code for lying—that federal spending has risen at the slowest pace of any president in almost 60 years, contains two deeply revealing truths:
1. Obama has such contempt for the press he assumes they will enable this lie.
2. The lie contains and highlights a deep contradiction: if federal spending is, as he claims, at such a slow pace, then we must conclude that this is a desirable goal. But if he’s lying, which he is, and federal spending is, under his watch, out of control, which it is, then we must conclude that his spending is not a desirable goal, In fact, it is an outright disaster, a danger to the republic.
Or perhaps Obama’s concept of truth is simply evolving.
