George Will takes a hard look at all the outrageous promises that Obama is making about what he will do when he becomes President, from requiring that 10% of our energy come from renewable sources within four years, to getting a million 150mpg vehicles on the roads within six years. Obama flings these promises about without a hint of how the government will intervene in the markets to make them happen, or how much it will cost. If the American people took the trouble to tally up the bill on all of Obama’s wild claims, they would laugh him off the stage. As Will notes,
In this year’s campaign, soggy with environmental messianism, deranged self-importance and delusional economics, the question is: Where is the derisive laughter?
