Now I'm Screwed

A brief bit of snark over at the blogfather's is a neat encapsulation of some things I have thought for a while.  Unfortunately, Andrew Sullivan is the inspiration.

One of the prime defenses of the economic machinations of the Democrats in Congress and the Obama administration is that "the stimulus didn't work better because they didn't know how bad the economy really was."   This brings to mind a couple brief retorts.

  • So you want to reward their prior incompetence with more spending authority?  Alternatively, if they got it wrong before, what makes you think they are correct now?
  • So you now find it acceptable for a President to make a strong response based on faulty information that everyone accepted as true at the time?
Sadly, Mr. Sullivan's endorsement of Ron Paul just makes it that much harder to pick a candidate should next November witness a Paul vs. Obama race.  The hair splitting required may be beyond my acumen.
