What does it matter if Waxman-Markey shuts down every U.S. manufacturing plant if this is what’s happening across the Pacific? (Much, much more at ChinaHush.com, via Instapundit.)

Obama doesn’t lie. He merely elides, gliding from one dubious assertion to another. This has been the story throughout his whole health-care crusade. Its original premise was that our current financial crisis was rooted in neglect of three things — energy, education and health care. That transparent attempt to exploit Emanuel’s Law — a crisis is a terrible thing to waste — failed for health care because no one is stupid enough to believe that the 2008 financial collapse was caused by a lack of universal health care.

Nor has anybody adequately explained what the crash had to do with education or energy. OK, maybe the price of fuel? But why is the solution to make fuel and energy even more expensive as part of a climate bill that is nothing short of job-assasinating national self-flagellation?
