The United States is. . . Leaderless

January 28, 2011

“Examine the president’s words, and you see nothing new or specific. It hardly constitutes bravery to call for a bipartisan Social Security fix that doesn’t slash benefits. At that level of generality, who would disagree?

The health care law — if implemented as planned — is merely a down payment on cost containment. But the president’s only specific was to repeat his offer to join with Republicans on medical malpractice reform. This is attacking a mountain with a teaspoon.

Corporate tax reform is a great idea but not a solution to the fiscal problem. The president’s opening bid was to fix the corporate tax code without adding to the deficit.”

And this is from Ruth Marcus, a strong supporter of Obama’s.
