I must admit there are some indications that Obama may be in respects a truthful man.  (We live by lies.  We define ourselves by them.  We give our selves the “slack” that our peers must deserve if we do–but somehow we never manage to get around to giving it.  More and worse than that truth is a matter of language, of words–and that means that when I say something that results in you hearing truth, it’s exception not rule.)  Honesty is disastrous for politicians.  But then, I don’t believe in free will today.
