Logic? We Don't Need No Stink'n Logic!

President Obama interviewed by Steve Scully, Friday May 22nd, on C-SPAN (page 4), after the President expounded on his healthcare plan :
SCULLY: Yet, it all takes money. You know the numbers, $1.7 trillion debt, a national deficit of $11 trillion. At what point do we run out of money?

OBAMA: Well, we are out of money now. We are operating in deep deficits, not caused by any decisions we've made on health care so far. This is a consequence of the crisis that we've seen and in fact our failure to make some good decisions on health care over the last several decades.
As Instapundit translates:
"I’ve bankrupted the nation, so now your only hope is to pass my healthcare plan." That goes beyond chutzpah to the edge of pathological dishonesty. Except, I guess, that it’s not pathological if you get away with it. And so far, he has.
When you're the One, even cognitive dissonance supports collectivism.
