If you want to know why the Obama administration failed so spectacularly to defend Obamacare in the Supreme Court last week, look no further than a 2008 statement President Obama gave to author Richard Wolfe: "You know, I believe my own bulls--t."
This arrogance may have served Obama well when he had to take on the Clinton political machine, but it has also caused many of Obama's biggest failures in office. Going into oral arguments, the White House believed that the case for Obamacare was a "slam dunk" and that they would win 7-2, maybe even 9-0. It's just the latest example of Obama's arrogance crippling his effectiveness as president.
Hey, you've got to be arrogant to be a politician, right? I mean, you can't be some humble type of person who just sails through life as the wind blows.
You've got to be out there, in your face, bold, loud and flamboyant.
And then, you've got to be full of BS, right?
