Oh, let’s not always see the same hands! Michael Ramirez of IBD Editorials notices a pattern in this administration. Whenever a question arises, what’s the best answer? Ramirez wonders today whether a young Barack Obama had trouble thinking of anything else other than his fallback position these days:

A famous bit of wisdom says that when all you have is a hammer, every problem starts looking like a nail. Thus far, every problem looks to Barack Obama as an opportunity for government intervention and nationalization. Which kind of tool does that make him?
Ramirez has a terrific collection of his works: Everyone Has the Right to My Opinion, which covers the entire breadth of Ramirez’ career, and it gives a fascinating look at political history.
