Is "agnostic" another way of saying, "I don't give a damn one way or the other"?

2. somebody denying something is knowable: somebody who doubts that a question has one correct answer or that something can be completely understood

Sounds kinda wishy-washy to me.  Doesn't sound like this does it?

Suddenly, after crowing on end about he would not increase taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 a year, Obama has decide that he is "agnostic" about raising taxes on the middle class.  The thing is, Obama isn't the least bit agnostic about his socialist policies.  He knows what he wants and now he needs to find some way to pay for everything.  He has already lost the middle class so what the Hell.  He has no reason to pretend anymore. 

Yeah, he signed the "pay-go" thing but not until after he raised the debt ceiling another 1.9 trillion dollars.  There seems, as usual, to be a disconnect between Obama's words and deeds. 

Truth is, Obama is running out of people he can snow.  The "centrist" thing isn't going to work for Obama because he can't sell something that nobody will buy.  In the mean time, the natives on the Left are getting restless.  This was supposed to be their golden moment but instead everything around them is turning to rust. 

Things are going to get interesting over the next few months.  Obama can't do squat without the Dems in Congress and so far he hasn't been able to do anything with the Dems in Congress. Every day we inch closer to Election Day 2010.  Desperation is in the air.  Do Dems appease the Left and lose in November.  Do they assume they've already lost and go for broke?  Do some Dems realize that their differences with the Right are far less than their differences with a far Left radical president on his cronies? 

Who knows?

Ebonics for "watch my lips".

Agnostic - : < Gk ágnōst(os), var. of ágnōtos - not known, incapable of being known

The term for "lacking knowledge" that comes from the Latin is...wait for it...IGNORANT.

I know, it's a reach (a caller to Rush put the idea in my head), but it seems so fitting to me, coming from the mouth of the Ignoramous in Chief.
