Dodge facts, skip details, govern Chicago-style | Washington Examiner

Michael Barone has a pretty good handle on Obama and can distill it to three rules:
  1. Obama likes to execute long range strategies but suffers from cognitive dissonce when new facts render them inappropriate.
  2. Obama doesn't seem to care much about the details of policy.
  3. Obama does business Chicago-style.
The latter is not all that surprising, but by ignoring half the country while he steamrolls on with his out of proportion scheme to expand government and the role of government in our lives.

Obama's administration has played the "anything in a crisis" type of mentality. But I am not sure that we are truly in a national crisis like say, World War II.
