So, apparently for being such a socialist in the eyes of the Republicans, the President’s jobs plan could well save the economy from sliding into the trough of another recession. That’s not coming from a lefty rag like the Times, or even the Nation. It’s coming from a survey of economists conducted by Bloomberg LP (not precisely a ‘pinko’ organization). Far from being a socialist, Obama the pragmatic capitalist that he is, has shifted the onus back onto the GOP, because they will, inevitably, oppose his plan. So, according to Bloomberg, Republicans, if they oppose the plan, are going to be opposing what’s essentially a booster shot to the economy.
So, GOP, have at it. Continue on your crazy fest. It’ll do you about as much good for your electoral prospects as it’s done for the economy.
