The People Are Revolting

Michael Barone on the coming landslide:
Bigger government, in this view, helps the ordinary citizen, who is otherwise at the mercy of the masters of the marketplace. And those citizens will be grateful, especially in times of economic distress, to the politicians who expand government ever further.

This theory has been getting some empirical testing over the past two years. And it doesn’t seem to be working any better than Keynes thought the theories of defunct economists were working in the 1930s.

The Obama Democrats have been giving Americans more government, with a vengeance. But the voters seem about to wreak vengeance in their turn.

Seriously? That's a blog post? Three paragraphs copied and pasted from NPR? No wonder the sheeple have been led around into this period of slaughter, their journalists are lazier than lambs.

Actually, Kevin, that link was to NRO, not NPR.

If Barone had written that for National for Public Radio, he'd have been fired for writing something so unhelpful to the cause of progressivism and told to consult a psychiatrist.

I see you've been a blogger since 2008. And in all that time, a grand total of 2 (two) blog posts and both about the fascinating subject of the "spring maintenance" of your boat.

I admit it, your blogging energy puts me to shame.
