Wish I’d Said That!

Below is a quote from the great Jonah Goldberg. It wraps up in a single, nice, neat package, the American left today, as it views the economy:

A rising economic tide is bad for people who live off of the poverty of others.

It’s here.

I wrote this piece both because I love Goldberg’s quote, and as partial penance for disagreeing with the Great Goldberg in my previous post, here.

  1. I wish that were true, X. Unfortunately those who live off of the poverty of others always, successfully, claim responsibility for that rising economic tide. The tide simply didn’t come in for Obama like it did Clinton.

  2. Yep. For a bunch of people who claim not to love Wall Street, the left are all about profiting from the misery of others.

    If things are going well, they claim credit for it (eg: Bill Clinton claiming credit for Reagan’s economy), and if things are going poorly, it’s because the nasty-wasty right-wingers are preventing them from implementing their agenda.
