  •  Gallup: 72% say Massive Federal Jobs Stimulus (7+ / 0-)

    The deficit be damned!

    If you want to corner the Republicans on being uncooperative, you do it on the basis of "We offer the Updated New Deal, they offer nothing. Elect Democrats: see Jobs created, the deficits fixed, the safety-net protected and even expanded."

    Victory. Recovery.

    Internalizing the Republicans Austerity and lipsticking it with the tag "Superlative" is objectively Economic Suicide.

    Politically, defenders of the offer say it's kabuki, but they've reached for the wrong Japanese phrase: what they mean is "seppuku."

    If Republicans said every 3rd person named "Smith" should hang, we'd bargain them to every 7th. Then we'll see apologia written praising this most pragmatic compromise. There's our losing formula.
