President Obama's health care speech

If you listen to President Obama's speech on health care tonight, please remember the wisdom of Thomas Sowell (emphasis mine):

The most important thing about what anyone says are not the words themselves but the credibility of the person who says them.

The words of convicted swindler Bernie Madoff were apparently quite convincing to many people who were regarded as knowledgeable and sophisticated. If you go by words, you can be led into anything.

If Thomas Sowell doesn't do it for you, perhaps you'll listen to Jesus:
Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them" (Matthew 7:15-16).
