In private pitches to Democrats, President Obama says he will persuade Congress to pass his health care overhaul even if it kills him and even if he has to ask deeply distrustful lawmakers to trust him on a promise the White House doesn't have the power to keep. . . .http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2010-03-07-health-care_N.htm
Some answers, however, rely more on faith than fact. Confronting party unrest on his left and right, Obama is calling for political courage, citing historic opportunities and essentially saying "trust me" in areas inherently murky, uncertain and out of his control.
This was supposed to be the reality based, science based, fact based administration.
But, now, their best argument is "trust me".
