Graham concluded: "He's a small ball guy. He's afraid of his own party."


A Washington Post fact check on Monday determined that Graham's assertion that Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid would go "bankrupt" was overblown because "the facts do not justify such rhetoric."


"In this case we are going to bump Graham up to Three Pinocchios," the Post's Glenn Kessler wrote. "Not only did he repeat the error of treating all of Medicare as one entity, but he did the same with Social Security. Moreover, his reference to Medicaid makes little sense, even if one has very expansive definitions of the words 'bankruptcy' and 'imminent.'"


It's a reminder of something I learned when I first came to DC a couple of decades ago: the conventional wisdom in DC is almost always wrong.

I have to smile when I think back on all the times that practically the entire punditry have been dead wrong over the years, it really is comical. George HW Bush was a shoo-in for a second term after the first Gulf War; deficits were intractable and would dominate our policy landscape all through the '90s; Bill Clinton was done as President after the Republicans took over Congress in 1994; the Democrats would lose 30 seats in the '98 Lewinsky scandal-dominated cycle; Republicans would keep the House throughout the decade of the 2000s; Obama would never win re-election after the 2010 cycle. Every one of these big assumptions couldn't have been proven to be more wrong.

Obama is more than "small ball", he is small minded. He is petulant and arrogant and someone lacking in the experience needed to be the Boss of the biggest company in the world; the US Government.

Here is the only time Obama spoke the truth and was coherent:

So what changed in the minds of Obama, Clinton and Biden? Arrogance? Power? Winning at any cost regardless of the fact that Obama was the least experienced President in the history of the office?
