After his election victory and early into his presidency, it was fashionable in some liberal intellectual circles to compare Barack Obama to Abraham Lincoln when it came to his rhetoric. Now Obama has been reduced to this: At a fundraiser Tuesday night in St. Louis, the president told an audience, “They call it Obamacare? I do care! You should care, too.”
“ObamaCare, I care, and you should care, too,” has faint echoes of “I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream.”
It isn’t exactly the Gettysburg Address, is it?
