Is that a pony over there?

The problem of America’s undeveloped human potential is real, but Mr. Obama has set up a non-falsifiable evidentiary standard for government. The public schools fail the poor, but reforming them is hard and would upset the unions. So instead liberals propose Head Start to prepare poor kids for kindergarten. Head Start has little to show after 47 years, but rather than replacing it, the new liberal solution is to expand it to everyone.

Meanwhile, pundits who claim to be empiricists lecture Republicans to agree to all this so they don’t appear to be so hostile to government. Everyone pretends that spending more on programs that have demonstrably failed is a sign of compassion and “what works,” government expands without results, and the poor are offered only the false hope of liberal good intentions.
