Mr Brooks Makes Sense
David Brooks is, as I’ve written before, a clear thinker in the way WF Buckley was: even when I don’t agree with him, I understand his reasoning, because he IS reasoning – not spewing focus-tested talking points. Like Brooks, I am afraid our President, brilliant as he is, has not been able to become a Leader. Brooks’s NYT article today is good, but it also leaves out one key point: There are many, too many buzzword-driven buffoons (most Norquist Disciples) for any reasonable deal to pass soon enough to avoid at least some impact to the “Full Faith & Credit” of the US Government, and consequently the economy.
Too much stupid – but then, you get the Government you ask for :-)
