It's so hard to work out what he actually believes.

I doubt he would regard that as a criticism. In fact his abstention record in the Senate was so impressive that the people of Illinois would have been forgiven for wondering whether he actually knew he had been elected.

What's amusing is how keen people are to project their fantasies onto him, rather than (as irate says) read things at face value and realise he's full of crap. Reagan fans do the same for Reagan. Kennedy fans did the same for Kennedy. Bush and Nixon were entirely different kinds of president, who were useful as totems of abuse. Can you imagine the reaction if Bush had written this twaddle? Apart from sheer amazement at the accuracy of the grammar, obviously.
