Over at Cafe Hayek, Don Boudreaux notes this snippet from our President:
Some of you may be cynical and fed up with politics. A lot of you may be disappointed and even angry with your leaders. You have every right to be. But despite all of this, I ask of you what has been asked of Americans throughout our history. I ask you to believe.That one could say this good faith assertion reflects a profound mysticism sharply at odds with the otherwise anti-religious nature of the left.
