Quote of the Day
If Democrats are going to accept Republican premises, they shouldn’t be surprised if a majority of people eventually conclude that Republicans ought to be in charge of government policy.
Economist Bruce Bartlett.
This is the problem with the triangulation strategy deployed by President Obama and his political team. Harry Truman made the point that voters will choice a Republican over a President that governed like a Republican any day. The 2010 elections sent the Blue Dogs irrelevancy. The only upside about a potential Obama loss is that it will kill triangulation and neoliberalism. To that I say good riddance.
