Great article.My opinion is that it is right on target.
In "The March of Folly," Barbara Tuchman asked, "Why do holders of high office so often act contrary to the way reason points and enlightened self-interest suggests?" Her assessment of self-deception -- "acting according to wish while not allowing oneself to be deflected by the facts" -- captures the conditions that are gripping President Obama and the Democratic Party leadership as they renew their efforts to enact health-care reform.

I always wonder if the people who TRULY believe that the situation our country is in right now is fully and completely and ONLY George Bush's fault are highly functioning adults. I wonder if they are able to walk and chew gum or if that is just TOO taxing for their itty bitty brains to compute. As to the article... I think people (on both sides) get up there to Washington, believe their own hype and lose their minds! They seem to have no notion of what is going on in middle America and pander most to special interests (a squeaky wheel gets the most grease and all that) and to their party. Which is a shame! Looking out for only the HERE and NOW for the last 4 DECADES or so is what has us in this mess NOW. It had to happen and Obama is NOT fixing ANYTHING he just COMPOUNDING the problem.

This bill will be his greatest folly just as he is our greatest folly. I hope his folly fails to come to past just as we will eventually make him our past folly in 2012.
