Krauthammer knows Obama will impose a VAT (value added tax or a national sales tax) because, "he's an intelligent man."
As the French poet, Baudelaire, wrote: "The devil's best trick is to persuade you that he doesn't exist!" A comparable statement could be made for those who think Obama is an "idiot" (sound familiar), or is trying to "destroy our country." Like the devil's tricks, these are all distractions. Obama is a man with a deep leftist worldview set on fundamentally transforming our county for the betterment of everyone. It's up to us whether we continue to support his persona and policies or marinate in ignorance.
