The following two quotes from John Hinderaker, one of our leading conservative thinkers. One is about George W. Bush, the other about Barack Obama. See if you can figure out which is which:
"So evidently we have to add astronomy to history and economics as subjects of which (the President) is remarkably ignorant. I'm beginning to fear that our President has below-average knowledge of the world. Not for a President, but for a middle-aged American."
"It must be very strange to be (the President). A man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius, he can't get anyone to notice. He is like a great painter or musician who is ahead of his time, and who unveils one masterpiece after another to a reception that, when not bored, is hostile."
Is this an example of monstrous delusion, or just unapologetic lying? They've gotten so good at this behavior that it's hard to tell any more.
