Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

You Were Never Going To Win. Never.

I know that Mittens has gotten a bump from ousting political titan Rick Santorum.  This happens.  I'm curious to know what sort of likely voter screens pollsters use this election.  Will the electorate look like 2008 or 2010?

I read Matt Stoller point out that wealth inequality has grown under Obama.  I'm not sure what his point was, since Obama is trying - via the Buffett Rule - to address this.  Also, the nature of the recovery has benefited capital more than labor.  This is measurable.

But it might not have been so, if the GOP had not decided to obstruct just about everything Obama tried to do.

Chait runs it down nicely in that column above.
