A new skirmish in his war of words with The One and a further reason why this debate is, in fact, all about the O: Obama’s track record on speedy trillion-dollar solutions to avert alleged looming catastrophes isn’t, after all, real solid so far. He bet $787 billion in house money on his advisors’ ability to read the economy and lost; no surprise that the public’s leery about giving him a new line of credit. In fact, as perverse as it sounds, if Lindsey Graham turns out to be right and ObamaCare dies on the House or Senate floor, we may have the stimulus to thank. If not for that lesson on how reckless and prodigal the Democrats can be, they might have gotten the benefit of the doubt on health care. As it is, the public’s taking a harder look this time. Bankrupt me once, shame on you; bankrupt me twice…
