Dan Riehl on the surreal machinations of the White House, and the Democrats, since seizing total national power just over a month ago:
It's impossible to watch Obama maneuver since taking the WH without characterizing his behavior as divisive and dishonest. Unfortunately, taking it all in, it's clear that one of two things must be true.
The Obama administration along with key Democrat players in Congress are either incompetent, or willing to risk a genuine Depression for political gain.
Sorry Dan, it's actually both. The leadership of the Democratic Party - Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Chris Dodd, Harry Reid - are ideologues, and ideologues never let reality get in the way of the implementation of their ideology, no matter how many people must suffer for them to reach that end.
And it wouldn't be so damn obvious if they were even a bit more competent, you know?
