I saw it, and I don't think Emanuel did OPapaDoc any favors this morning.  He came off as abrasive, closed-minded and obstinate in the face of a problem that has millions of people concerned.  He was like a surgeon in panic  and denial before going into a delicate operation.  It's not exactly what the patient wants to see.

“If he will lie to or mislead his wife and daughter, those with whom he is most intimate, what will prevent him from doing the same to the American public? Private conduct does have public consequences.”

Yet another unelected academic that does not represent anyone other than himself, calling the shots about what will happen to the American people.  The very premise ought to send shivers down the spine, but far too many people have been asleep at the wheel or are directly complicit in carrying this madness out.

Re: "abrasive, closed-minded and obstinate" - one would be hard-pressed to find an Obama Administration official who was not all of those things. Being utterly convinced of one's intellectual and moral superiority, and in the equal stupidity and degeneracy of one's adversaries is a virtual prerequisite for admission.

In any organization, the underlings take on the personality characteristics of the boss.  That includes packs of wolves.

Wolves cannot help but act like wolves. People can choose whether to be producers, dependents, or predators.

Personally, I believe humans are, by nature, the most cunning animals on earth.  We become producers, dependents or predators based on our perception of self-interest.  This is why we should not be providing incentives for government-dependency.

Our perception of self-interest is preceded by, and dependent upon the volitional nature of human consciousness. Epistemologically speaking, humans alone can choose to perceive what exists and then act in accordance with such perceptions, according to the values they have learned. People who come to believe that they are not or ought not be responsible for their own lives tend to fall prey to those who promise to relieve them of such responsibility. In the process, they make servants of themselves, masters of others, and victims of strangers.
