Jonah Goldberg writes in USA Today:
Obama's fraudulent claim that the Supreme Court agrees with him is not so unusual. The president has a well-known habit of insisting that not only is he right, but also that all smart people agree with him.
For instance, in a 2009 discussion of the economic stimulus, Obama toldTheWashington Post's Fred Hiatt, "Whatever arguments may be made by the critics at this point, there was no economist out there who thought we didn't need to do (it)." Or, in a speech about energy last March: "What I just said about energy, by the way, is not disputed by any energy expert. Everybody agrees with this."
Let the record show that there are, in fact, economists and energy experts who disagree with Barack Obama. Really.
Beyond what this tendency says about the president's own character, it certainly reveals the arrogance of liberalism itself.
