If we lived in a world where commentary could make policy…

I love this. I love Fareed. I love his grand plan. However, I literally laughed out loud when he proposes a stimulus coupled with the President saying he wants to bring down the deficit. I could see Mitch McConnell’s jowls flapping as he bloviated about Obama wanting to spend more money and profess to be concerned about the deficit. It would make for such great sound bites. The idea that anyone in congress can think beyond their own self interest let alone beyond the next election cycle is laughable. To see them fall all over each other as they tried to hammer out a long term policy that on the surface would require two mutually exclusive things… it would be great theater, but I am doubtful it could be good policy. If only pundit’s ideas could be debated and voted on in an intellectually honest manner and actually brought to fruition.
