Guess Who?

October 21st, 2009

GuessWho Here’s a multiple guess quiz for you:

What well-known public figure said “Nobody, no individual nor country, can indefinitely spend more than she or he earns. Two plus two always adds up to four, never five.

  1. Senator Barry Goldwater
  2. President Ronald Reagan
  3. Columnist Cal Thomas
  4. President Barrack Obama
  5. Cuban President Raul Castro

Given their political proclivities, it could certainly have been a comment from any of the first three. That view is fundamental to conservative thought.

President Obama might have said it in a moment of lucidity, because he’s a bright fellow with a penchant for speaking publicly with more candor than we are sometimes comfortable with.

But, if you guessed any of these, you would have been wrong. It was Raul Castro, in a very public forum, who then went on to say, “Within the conditions of our imperfect socialism, due to our own shortcomings, two plus two often adds up to three.

That would seem to put House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, somewhere to the left of Mr. Castro, wouldn’t it?
