Me The People

Me, the People: Clive Crook, Here We Go Again Edition

Henry Farrell Aug 11 '11

Live in “The Atlantic”:http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2011/08/how-obama-can-win/243433/, with a few minor amendments.

bq. Democrats don’t want to hear this, but I am doubtful about further stimulus spending and rightly demanding answers on the long-term fiscal problem. I don’t believe that higher taxes on “millionaires and billionaires” are enough to solve that problem. True, this is no longer Obama’s position–but I saw how he had to be forced off it. I give the GOP some credit for that.

For context, see “here”:http://tmc.local/blog/category/me-the-people/. In fairness to Crook though, the “Me, the People” stupid pundit trick is considerably less annoying than the “Me, the American Political System”:http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/10/opinion/the-day-our-leaders-got-unstuck.html?src=me&ref=opinion one.
