Blaming Obama

AntiWar.Com
by Justin Raimondo

09/15/10

As long as Obama’s been in office, Obama’s progressive supporters ‘and even some sensible conservatives’ have been ’surprised and dismayed’ that his military and diplomatic posture seems nearly identical to that of his predecessor in the White House. Was he merely a good actor, or are there hidden factors chaining him to the ‘missteps’ of the Bush White House? Has he cracked, or is he ‘trapped?’ Walt believes the latter: ‘I don’t really blame Obama,’ he writes. The President ‘can’t simply wage a magic wand,’ after all, reverse course and ‘get the rest of the government to fall into line.’ Let’s stop right there and ask: why, exactly, not?

On more stimulus spending

Campaign For Liberty
by US Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX)

It’s not working as economic strategy or as politics. Take a deep breath and admit the Democratic Party failed to grasp the enormity of the economic upheaval facing the country — people will be grateful for some honest talk. Start over with a more aggressive and realistic economic agenda that measures success in the tangible results people can see, not rosy forecasts of macroeconomic models. Instead of holding back, start using the government’s vast, untapped powers in more ambitious ways that directly generate real changes in the economy, starting with jobs, jobs, jobs...

The curse of fiat money

Ludwig von Mises Institute
by Thorsten Polleit

09/14/10

It may come as a surprise to many, but the relative size of the US commercial-banking industry has not declined following the so-called credit-market crisis, which developed in the second half of 2007. On the contrary, it has increased since then. While nominal GDP rose 4.2% from the second quarter of 2007 to the second quarter of 2010, banks’ total assets rose 18.4%...

"President Obama is Involved in War Crimes Right Now"

The New Statesman Interviews: Noam Chomsky

It's imperial doctrine. Stability is when the UK and US invade a country and impose the regime of their choice. But if Iran tries to interfere, that's destabilising.
