Beat the retreat

Old friend ED has a long post up at Forbes about what he aptly describes as Democrats’ long ideological retreat on economic matters. He writes:

 

The cheering of ‘historic cuts’ by Democrats in the depths of one of the worst economic downturns in the history of this nation should be viewed as a defeat in and of itself, the beginning of a long ideological retreat.

[.....]

At what point do we hold our elected officials accountable for their bad compromises? At what point do we ask a president who campaigned against the legacy of his predecessor why he has continued so many of the last administration’s worst practices, from war in the Middle East to education reform? And at what point do we ask Democrats to stop running from every fight, to stop meeting the GOP in the middle time and time again, while Republicans constantly work to shift the middle further and further to the right?


 

Except I don’t think it’s the beginning of a retreat, the retreat has been going on for 30 years. A Democratic House passed both rounds of Reagan tax cuts. Clinton signed welfare reform, made Bob Rubin the Secretary of Treasury, and declared the era of big government over.

I’m not saying that was all bad, by the way, the Clinton boom did great things for working people in this country, not just low unemployment but solid wage increases. Heeding the Siren call of Ryanomics would be all bad, though.

Democrats can’t retreat on economic issues forever. Maybe it’s smart to dodge the incoming fire until the demographic cavalry arrives, but I’m getting nervous.

The upcoming election will be tough as many Dem Senators are up for their 6 year cycle and lazy pokes like Jim Webb don't want to run again. Hey, if he is scheming long term and wants to hold onto the Senate and get the House back to at least nominal Republican control then he has my support.

I'm still supportive too, but I feel like one can be supportive and still criticize him.

 

I'm especially supportive of him given the alternative.

I'm still supportive, but Krugman does make excellent points.

Nearly six in ten Americans approve of the eleventh hour budget deal struck between Congress and the White House to avert a government shutdown, according to a CNN pollreleased on Monday. And what's more, a plurality give Democrats the most credit for making it happen.

In the poll of American adults, 58% said they approved of the budget deal, compared to 38% who disapproved.

Additionally, the poll found that a 48% plurality of respondents credited Obama and Congressional Democrats the most for preventing a government shutdown. Thirty-five percent of respondents gave more credit to Republicans, while 11% thought both sides were equally responsible.  http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/04/poll-americans-strongly-...

Obama  is speaking on Wednesday, give him a chance to put forth his new plan.   Obama is definitely not a Socialist but he has still been a good President.

The President Is Missing

Paul Krugman is not happy with Obama. It's hard to disagree with Krugman.

He could have been mentally ill, or he could of just been a really mean, awful person. Who knows. I still want to kick his effin' ass.

MAYBE I'LL PICKET THIS FOOL'S GAUDY BUILDING

Donald Trump, more stupid than racist or more racist than stupid? Here's his latest angle on why President Obama wasn't born in the USA.Watch it.

Weirdly, Trump doesn't seem to realize that for the purposes he's discussing, an American mother makes you an American citizen. Period. Full stop.

What makes this all comical and egregious is that I don't get the impression that Trump is any sort of conspiracy theorist or racist. But if that's what's necessary to pump up his latest 'campaign' stunt, bring it on.

You'll need 15 minutes? What will you use? a kiddie aluminum bat?

 

On a more somber note, don't you guys think the man has to be seriously mentally ill to do something like that? That person can never be allowed anywhere near his children. or any children for that matter.
