obama_childish_play“In the words of Scripture,” Barack Obama announced at his inauguration, “the time has come to set aside childish things.”
               
So why does the President of the United States embrace the most childish interpretation of political discourse ever put forward on a national stage?
               
Politics is about making choices. We either cut spending or we grow spending. We either have less regulation or more regulation. We either strengthen defense or we weaken it. Obama seemingly understands this. He has repeatedly referred to the “hard choices” we face as a nation.
               
Yet despite his “hard choices” rhetoric, Barack Obama’s favorite political tactic is to claim that no choices need be made at all; all political differences of opinion, he says, can be chalked up to misunderstanding rather than conflicting fundamental values. All choices are “false choices” if we just think deeply enough. Or rather, if Obama thinks deeply enough.
