According to Jonathan Alter for Bloomberg News, yes:
President Barack Obama goes into the 2012 with a weak economy that may doom his reelection. But he has one asset that hasn’t received much attention: He’s honest.Yeah, when I think of "honest presidents", Barack Hussein Obama is the name that jumps to my mind right away....... or something.
But good old Jonnie knows he has feet of glass because he is quick to add:
Although it’s possible that the Solyndra LLC story will become a classic feeding frenzy, don’t bet on it. Providing $535 million in loan guarantees to a solar-panel maker that goes bankrupt was dumb, but so far not criminal or even unethical on the part of the administration.Yeah, nothing "scandalous" or unethical in an administration giving special treatment to a big Obama donor. According to cop killer-defender Van Jones, that was a "noble mistake".
Take a look at the list Prof William Jacobson provides in regard to Barack "Free of Scandal" Obama:
- Fast and Furious – guns missing, border patrol agent dead, Mexican gangs well-armed, and an Attorney General who is incompetent at best, misleading at worst.
- Nixonian control of press access to fundraisers.
- Obamacare – possibly the most deceptive law ever passed, so much so that one of its key cost-saving tools turns out to be too costly to implement.
- The disregard of judicial orders as to Gulf oil leases and the near shutdown of new production.
No, no liberal bias here. None whatsoever. No wonder they are going belly up.
