Two very different views from Robert Reich and Charles Krauthammer.
I am more inclined to side with the Krauthammer view.
Regardless of which view one agrees with I do not recall a policy discussion where the within-group variation in views was so large for both the Rs and the Ds. I think fiscal responsibility is, like civil liberties, a cross-cutting issue on which the parties are not very strongly sorted.
Hat tip to Nat Wilcox on the Krauthammer piece; the Reich piece is via those portside.org emails that I am still getting despite not having signed up for them.
Who was my favorite student this term?
