Doubling Down

President Obama, who accuses the Republicans and Paul Ryan, who actually bothered to put together a credible budget and a plan to save entitlements (Mr. Obama’s own budget received zero votes), of “doubling down” on the old, failed policies of “Social Darwinism,” has been doing some “doubling down” of his own: on class warfare; on high taxes; on scary deficit-spending; on trashing oil companies; on subsidies for “green energy”; on blaming others for his own failures; on attacks on religious freedom in the service of a radical sexual agenda; etc. Let’s hope voters aren’t so naive as to “double down” on him.
