  •  Rendell's just a useful idiot (0+ / 0-)

    He doesn't know wtf he's talking about. They just feed him some talking points and he spouts them, which he's paid well to do. He's a shill, like Rivlin, Bowles, Simpson, Brooks, etc. Some of them know they're lying, some are just morons.

    In 1836 Andrew Jackson balanced the budget for only the second time in US history. In 1837 the US experienced the worst economic downturn in its history to that point. There was a direct and substantial correlation between the two.

    Only economic fools, the obsessive-compulsive, and self-interested liars fixate on balancing the budget, which is utterly unnecessary and quite dangerous.
