I hadn't seen these diaried so wanted to link to two good posts on the coming fiscal curb. One is from Jonathan Cohn, the reasonable, and is a good pithy takedown of the (not just in the media) notion that both sides are equally to blame, using Starbucks' campaign as an example: "The Real Fiscal-Cliff Message Starbucks Should Put on It's Coffee Cups".
The other is from Kevin Drum, talks about the dynamics of last minute posturing as we approach the cliff, and brings a title worth repeating: "The Great Republican Recession of 2013 is Now Five Days Away".
Hope everyone enjoys these quick reads if they have time, and passes them around. I'm sharing them with my moderately conservative friends, who tend to be blaming both sides right now. I think the more the public realizes who owns this mess, the better the final outcome will be.
Have to get to work so won't have much time for commenting. Best, A4Q
