Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
Obama lied, people died.
What's good for the goose...Did Obama's troops bomb any mosques in this attack?
How mature, to stoop to the level of those that you detest.
Fight fire with fire!
"Sorry, I'm going to be just an intellectually-dishonest, lying pain in the ass as the left was about George Bush for the past 8 years."Please, don't actually do this. Or at least do it jokingly, the way you did just now.Playing the game of "well it's only fair, since the other guys did it!" will not do anyone any good. It will appeal to some of those who are already firmly in the conservative/libertarian camp, but if you actually want to see free market ideas enjoy widespread popularity, you're going to have to also appeal to moderates and liberals. Bitterly taunting Obama at every opportunity will only alienate them.I foresee a lot of right-wing pundits blowing everything Obama does way out of proportion for at least the next six months, mainly out of spite for the way lefties have mocked Bush. But I think you'd be better off not jumping on that bandwagon.
By all means throw this back in their faces. It isn't about being childish or falling to their level. It's about returning like with like. George Bush didn't base his presidency on carefully managing his image or snuggling with the mass media. He did his job, a tough job, and had his character and intellect assaulted on a daily basis for it.By 2012, I want to see every stupid statement, every lie, every fault, every failure, and every hypocrisy of Obama in the light of day for everyone to see.Behold, the God that bleeds!
"It will appeal to some of those who are already firmly in the conservative/libertarian camp, but if you actually want to see free market ideas enjoy widespread popularity, you're going to have to also appeal to moderates and liberals"...Yeah, on what planet is this supposedly going to happen on?Those so called moderates and liberals already said they don't believe in capitalism...They voted for a pinko PARASITE who's never held a real job......
To the two conservatives who responded to my statement that the right-wing is going to blow every mistake Obama makes way out of proportion by indicating they intend to blow every mistake Obama makes way out of proportion: I suppose it's too late for me to bet money on my prediction, isn't it?To the Captain: after rereading my previous post, I think I came off as a little bossy. This is, of course, your blog, and you can write it however you wish. If you decide to go after Obama every chance you get, that's your call; and considering that you've had a lot more success at blogging than I'll likely ever have, I have to defer to your judgment on the matter. But I've been a fan of this blog for a long time, and I'd like to see it remain popular, so I just wanted to offer my advice in the hope that it would be useful to you.
