The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

How Obama can turn things around: Lie (again)
The Daily Beast has an interesting piece by Samuel Jacobs here. Famous speechwriters (the ones who helped load the president's most famous teleprompter shots) are suggesting that, for the State of the Union address, Obama needs to move toward the center (ya think?) and basically tell the American people what they appear now to want to hear. In other words, lie to them – again.
