Arianna Huffington must be getting some mileage out of her compulsive repetition of her same old rant on the economy. But she might take umbrage at being linked to the NYTimes. Maybe not. Who cares?
Ms. Huff and the Andy Rosenthal Show both wax critical about the recovery and when there are some positive indications, they repeat: Things may improve but only if the REFORMS that Treasury and White House have promised are enacted.
Do they not know that Obama is a man of his word? Maybe they do, but that assumption would rob them of reams of irrelevant and tendentious prose and a license to lazy perceotion, proved out in the NYT’s case by the ARS’s slavish deference to Maureen Dowd.. And in Huff’s case by a general willingness to suppress or minimize issues that have as much importance as the economy.
In a word, the reforms will come. No one in the WH believes the crisis is over. And both of these progressive bastions have beccome more predictable and boring as time passes. It is they that need a swift recovery.
