Jeff Medcalf in a comment on a post by Rand Simberg:
It’s funny, but Adelman exactly fits a pattern I’ve been noticing. Excluding low-information voters, who largely vote on emotional or tribal bases, the people that I am seeing supporting Obama largely hope that he doesn’t mean what he says, while those that oppose him largely believe he means exactly what he says.
Hmm, where have we read similar ideas?
