Just Make Stuff Up

by Victor Davis Hanson - June 12th, 2009 - National Review

In the first six months of the Obama administration, we have witnessed an assault on the truth of a magnitude not seen since the Nixon Watergate years. The prevarication is ironic given the Obama campaign’s accusations that the Bush years were not transparent and that Hillary Clinton, like her husband, was a chronic fabricator. Remember Obama’s own assertions that he was a “student of history” and that “words mean something. You can’t just make stuff up.”

Yet Obama’s war against veracity is multifaceted.

This is an article that needed to be written, and Victor Davis Hanson is the best man to write it. His own historical accuracy is well known. In addition he has analyzed Obama with a great appreciation of the similarities between his actions and the actions of former leaders. It is an excellent repudiation of the Obama creed.
