The “Logic” Of The Leftby Brad Warbiany
Why is Obama having so much trouble getting cap’n'tax, health care reform, and his other policies through? Apparently, it’s because he’s just too good at solving problems (emphasis added):
Rahm Emanuel famously said that you never want a serious crisis to go to waste. But the Obama administration made the mistake of effectively managing the financial emergency when they entered office. They faced a serious threat, but they never let it become a serious crisis. As such, the normal laws of political gravity never lifted, and everything went on pretty much as normal, albeit with the Federal Reserve sitting atop a much-larger balance sheet. The political dynamic right now is a lot closer to the mid-90s than the mid-30s.
If this isn’t tortured logic, it’s certainly been subjected to enhanced interrogation.
