How Dumb Does He Think We Are?

Barack Obama has a remarkable ability to utter howlers with a straight face, but this one from today’s radio address, talking about his proposed budget, stretched even his flexible standards of truth:

These steps won’t sit well with the special interests and lobbyists who are invested in the old way of doing business. I know they’re gearing up for a fight as we speak. My message to them is this: So am I.

As Obama well knows, lobbyists all over Washington are lighting cigars with $50 bills at the prospect of having $3.7 trillion worth of spoils to divvy up. Obama must think the American people–his supporters, anyway–are complete idiots.
