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.

The Obama Administration is delaying implementation of the employer mandate, either because they want to make sure there are as few bureaucratic hurdles as possible or because they may be trying to kill one of the worst aspects of the bill.  At least that's Chait's take, and it makes sense.

Needless to say, this means that the GOP now wants this part of the law implemented faster.

This highlights this blog's first rule: "The GOP is good at electoral politics but lousy at governing."

It also highlights "Cleek's Law": "Conservatives are against whatever liberals are for.  Updated daily."
