Try to look past the very simple and very obvious fact that Mark Halperin is an Authoritarian Corporate Propagandist trying to pass himself off as a Political Journalist.
We didn't just get into this mess yesterday, so we're prob'ly not gonna be able to fix it all by tomorrow.
But more specifically - on the usual crap that "conservatives" are always tossing around about "Balanced Budget From Day One", here's your line, Bernie: "While you can definitely spend your way to oblivion, you can't save your way back to prosperity."
But while we're working on getting The System back up and running, we have to get a coupla things thru our thick skulls.
First and foremost - stop giving these guys the benefit of the doubt.
--It's not like Halperin doesn't know what makes the economy work.
--And it's not like Jeb isn't aware of the fact that Supply Side is bullshit.
--We have to stop thinking Ted Cruz is trying to practice some good old fashioned democratic self-governance, but he's just not very good at it; or that we simply disagree on the questions of how we should go about moving towards that more perfect union.
I look at what the GOP has been doing for 30+ years, and I get a very bad feeling very deep in my gut.
