Obama’s political theory: An update

This past June I deduced that Barack Obama governed on the basis of an operative political theory that the American people are incredibly dumb. He continues to provide evidence that this is his theory every day that the health care debate continues, and he may yet be proved right.
In his weekly column, Rich Lowry develops the thesis that the administration is now relying on the sheer dimwitted gullibility of the American public to sell its putative health care plan. Rich asks: “How stupid do they think we are?” As Rich explains, they thinks we’re really, really stupid.
