Is there a difference between speed and velocity?
El Presidente doesn't seem to think so:
But the one approach I will not accept is inaction.
Really. So any action is good, no matter what?
It doesn't matter where we go, as long as we get there as fast as we can?
That's the difference between speed and velocity: Velocity is direction-aware.
Of course, I think Obama is absolutely aware of the direction he's taking the country; and as with HCR, he's going to obfuscate and prevaricate and betray until we're all screwed. Again.
