Plainly the people do not understand, so E.J.Dionne of the Post has explained to us: "a 'failure' by the supercommittee ... is actually a victory" for the Democrats: urlm.in/jzwp
The only source for objective information these days is Mr. Dionne's own column, he explains, because "the media are so desperate to avoid being attacked as 'liberal." I had not realized that, had you? But Dionne describes his journalistic isolation as "maddening", since he has patiently explained that "[s]ane fiscal policies are blocked because one party refuses to accept the need" for taxes to rise.
After this pesky two-party vexatiousness is swept aside, the incumbent administration can continue to implement the sane fiscal policies which have worked so well during the past three years.
