President Obama this week started testing his new campaign theme, replacing “hope and change” with the equally vacant promise of “fairness.” Apparently he hopes Americans can be fooled twice.

In a talk Tuesday at the site of Teddy Roosevelt’s “New Nationalism” speech, Obama repeatedly invoked the notion of fairness. “We are greater together,” he said, “when everyone engages in fair play, everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share.”

The problem is that fairness, just like hope and change, can mean anything anyone wants it to.

How convenient.
