In principle?

Ever under any circumstances?

I'm hard pressed to draw a different conclusion about what you think, since the only evidence you offered to support it was true in the case of the First Lady's favorite cause, was that she is the First Lady.

If I'm mistaken, by all means let me know what you really think.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

That and the control freakishness of the administration. It seems to me you are disputing that item.

Disclaimer: Not letting other control freaks off the hook, of course.

I'm more convinced by individual behavior and proposals than I am by association.

For example, if you said that the President was a control freak, I probably wouldn't argue much.

Indeed.

But it's not just a question of one man's personality defect.

He's part of the larger "enlightenment project" of ideologically driven control freakishness.

As it happens, the evidence someone can be considered in that group is just about the same evidence needed to establish an agenda of control. I'm not sure what renaming your claim has added to your evidence.
