Obama vs. The Left

with 3 comments

Everyone’s talking about it. For any possible upside you basically have to stick to the win-by-losing stimulus hypothesis—so don’t read Krugman telling you it won’t work.

I guess today about wraps up the progressive portion of the Obama administration. Back in November 2008 I’d hoped Democrats had elected our Reagan—but it turns out Obama was just our Joe Lieberman.

UPDATE: And all for nothing?

  1. What are the insiders’ accounts of the O administration looking like? From the outside, it looks like a big fuck-storm of reactionary bullshit. Do people close to the source have different opinions? Do they think it’s all the fault of the left? Do they think Obama has been stymied by Fox News & Co.?

  2. It seemed like up until a few weeks ago most commenters were content to say “It’s all Rahm’s fault.” I don’t know what the excuse is now.

  3. I was thinking about actual insiders, not liberals in the same position as us except liberal.
