Want to see a microcosm of everything thats been wrong with American economic policy over the last couple of years? Watch this exchange between Ezra Klein and Rick Santelli from earlier today on MSNBCs Morning Joe. Santelli, whose February 2009 on-air rant over fiscal and economic mismanagement inspired the start of the Tea Party, gets exasperated with Klein after the Washington Post columnist talks about money moving around unfairly:
The entire problem with this economy is the notion that some people have of unfairness in markets. In fact, thats how we got here in the first place. Government intervened to correct what was seen as unfairness in the housing market by guaranteeing risky loans, which set off a housing bubble that left the economic system in ruins. We got Obamanomics as the end result of that, which is all about fairness, and which has utterly failed to produce growth thanks to the arbitrary and punitive ways it treats investors.

That's why I watch Morning Joe sometimes...for moments like these.
Ezra is a child. And he is not some Ivy League prodigy. He is a poser.
Make Santelli the Treasury chief.
Looks to me like somebody who richly deserves a foot up his kiester...

“Were not seeing growth because of the hostile environment for investors, and a lack of consumer demand related to high unemployment. We could solve those tomorrow by reducing regulation (especially the arbitrary ObamaCare legislation that makes risk calculation nearly impossible), unfettering American energy exploration and extraction to create jobs and lower energy costs, and reform the tax system to put all investors on an even playing field and reduce the corporatism that drags down small-business creation and innovation. We dont need social engineers tinkering with the economic system to achieve their notion of fairness we need actual economic growth, which the social engineers have proven completely incompetent at delivering. “
Listen to how he talks. He has a “nose in the air” attitude, uses big words, name drops ... it is like he pretending to be Thurston Howell III. It is utterly sophomoric. Klein is like a college sophomore trying to impress a freshman. I don’t think he even comprehends what he saying.
We don’t need a fair system; we need a just system. In a “fair” system everybody gets a share. In a “ just” system everybody get to keep what he earns.
We should push Rick Santelli for President.
Ezra Klien is completly full of himself.
What a douche.
NEW RULE every time Ezra Kline, Journolist, is mentioned, the most douchy picture of Ezra Kline must be posted.
Ezra Kline just drones on and one saying nothing.
Ezra Kline, Captain Douchebag.
kline is fresh out of school.
kline is famous for creating the goebles style journ-0-list (since replaced with another)
kline is famous for towing the communist line being for homosexual marriage and talking without saying anything.
kline just strikes a pose and goes blah blah basking in his own wonderfulness.
Santelli will never be asked to do Klines show again.
Kline has a show?
what is it? romper room for douchebags?
(i see marx, obama, lennin, kruschev, bill ayers, the department of agriculture, and all the nice commies...)
Ezra Klein, JournoList founder and charter member of the Juicebox mafia, might be able to construct nice sentences and paragraphs, but the content of what he writes is utter nonsense.
