With all his talk about a “jobs bill” (a euphemism for a second “stimulus”?) and a spending “freeze,” last night the president almost sounded like a conservative. With his stubbornness on health care “reform” and “don’t ask don’t tell,” he sounded like a liberal. With his unseemly harranguing of the Supreme Court, he sounded like Hugo Chavez. The one thing he didn’t sound like was credible. Mr. Obama apparently doesn’t know that you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
