A long piece providing talking points for the self-described "sane left".
Obama stinks at politics actually
stinks, the debt-ceiling, couldn’t let Bush tax cuts expire for high earners
but he is interested in his re-election campaign because by being
re-elected he makes his Obamacare and Dodd-Frank CFPB
communist fascist laws very unlikely repealed
Thus he will have “fundamentally tranformed America” just like he
said 5 days from 2008 election.
Just by being re-elected he will have done that.
That’s his long game.

(What you resist...PERSISTS!)
Overall government employment has declined 2.6 percent over the past 3 years. (That compares with a drop of 2.2 percent during the early years of the Reagan administration.) To listen to current Republican rhetoric about Obamas big-government socialist ways, you would imagine that the reverse was true. It isnt.
This is an interesting statistic. I wonder how much of the 2.6% was due to a drop in military personnel related to the drawdown in Iraq.

Anyone can outsmart the GOP these days.

Sullivan opened himself to critique by real economists.
The left thinks the “narrative” is all that counts. Not reality.

Andrew, “everybody’s crazy but Barry and me” is a particularly poor argument when the “me” in question is, well, you.
