Executive Abuse

George Will is seething:

The Obama administration's agenda of maximizing dependency involves political favoritism cloaked in the raiment of "economic planning" and "social justice" that somehow produce results superior to what markets produce when freedom allows merit to manifest itself, and incompetence to fail. The administration's central activity -- the political allocation of wealth and opportunity -- is not merely susceptible to corruption, it is corruption.

Whole thing here. And to those on the left that (rightfully) complained of the Bush administration lawless policies of warrantless wiretaps and the like, the constitution and rule of law blindly apply to both civil and economic rights. Let's not play favorites.
