Enraptured by Verbal Hocus-Pocus

by Don Boudreaux on July 11, 2010

in Politics, Reality Is Not Optional, Science

Here’s a letter to the Los Angeles Times:

Scientists are disappointed that, contrary to candidate Obama’s promises, what the nation actually is getting from President Obama is “a culture of politics trumping science” (“Scientists expected Obama administration to be friendlier,” July 11).

No sensible person – much less any scientist – should be surprised by this reality.  Pres. Obama is a politician.  His promises to voters to pursue science rather than politics are as credible as a prostitute’s promises to a client to pursue love rather than profit.

Sincerely,
Donald J. Boudreaux
