    when the governments were already on the mat, gasping, struggling to get up, while Big Money knelt on their backs.

    What happened in Greece and Spain was abominable. (BTW if you pay attention, you'll notice that everyone likes to talk about Greece but nobody about Spain, because you can make a moralistic argument about how Greece deserves its misfortune, which you can't do with Spain.)

    I don't automatically trust anyone b/c of a political designation (like a party or philosophy) but you might be being a little tough on those socialists--when you begin the fight at such a disadvantage, it's difficult to make the right moves, don't you think?

    •  Exactly, that's how it works (2+ / 0-)

      The political parties in charge are all forced to cut because of the "realities" of the international system. It's terribly convenient for the banksters.
