Kaus on Obama

Mickey asks a question that seems to haunt Obama on so many different subjects.  This could be asked of his shovel-ready pledge for the stimulus:

Here’s a nagging question Obama chronicler Jonathan Alter may be able to answer: In his 2011 State of the Union address,  Obama laid out a plan to have “a million electric vehicles on the road by 2015,” a goal that now looks increasingly unrealistic insane. Did Obama know the million-EV goal was BS when he announced it? Was he misled by advisers? If the latter, have any suffered adverse consequences ?  Was he too inexperienced to know the extent to which bureaucracies tend to tell the boss what he wants to hear, even if it’s a fantasy? Or did he not care?
