I think this assessment on the U.S. political scene from two years ago is still relevant:http://www.smirkingchimp.com/thread/david-michael-green/3180...It's ironic, to begin with, that the ones who are bitching loudest today are precisely the people who created the mess we're in.We're actually in a whole heaping helping lot of messes, but I'm referring principally to the economic one. I suspect that the rabble ranks of the tea party movement are populated by people who have equally bad politics on social matters and foreign policy issues. But - for different reasons - they don't talk about those questions too much. Instead, they largely confine themselves to economic beefs, especially deficits.These are conservatives, however - more properly labeled as regressives - and the astonishing irony here is that they've had their way with economic policy in this country for thirty years running. And, excuse me, but now they're pissed off at the results?rj
