"But frankly, [Obama] should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people."
- Former Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA), July 2014

Writing in today’s issue of his Morning Jolt newsletter (1), National Review reporter Jim Geraghty gave his impression of the deeper meaning of Vice President Biden’s task force on gun violence and its likely recommendations:
If I were truly cynical, I would think that the Obama White House would prefer to put forth a package of reforms that was rejected by House Republicans (and a few Democrats) so that every high-profile shooting between now and November 2014 can be blamed on John Boehner and those unreasonable, uncompromising House Republicans.
Nah, they wouldn’t be so callous as to exploit human deaths that way, would they?
Like the sun rises in the East.
