“I am sure Presidents Reagan, Bush, Clinton, and Bush flip-flopped and did things that they had said they would not, but there was always the clear sense that their hypocrisies were adjudicated by some sort of standard. With President Obama there is neither a reality nor a standard, just words that so often have no connection to the real world, past or present.”

“Another bad jobs report, so it’s time to demagogue Mitt Romney’s tax returns, or so President Barack Obama’s campaign and his supporters believe. Their hope is that Americans care more about how much taxes Romney paid than they do about their own economic well-being after nearly four years of his failed economic policies. Such is the contempt the Obama camp holds for the voters.”

“Contempt”
is the word I was looking for to characterize this administration’s attitude.  They seem so
confident in the stupidity of enough of the electorate to do or say anything they want to accomplish
their goals.   They wholly discount the risk of attention or intelligence seeing it as too insignificant
a factor to cause much trouble.
