[Guest post by DRJ]
The Instapundit links an odd statement by President Obama:
“We’ve got to make sure that our party understands that, like it or not, we have to have a financial system that is healthy and functioning, so we can’t be demonizing every bank out there.”
Prof. Reynolds takes note of the bolded portion and asks: “Who wouldn’t like a ‘healthy and functioning’ financial system?” It’s a good question, and he answers it at the link.
I think the answer is politicians who have other priorities:
Like politicians who believe “when you spread the wealth around it’s good for everyone.”
Politicians who think Tea Party protesters are fair game to mock and ridicule.
Politicians who support universal voter registration despite its susceptibility to fraud and abuse.
Politicians who, despite warnings that they and their Party will be “screwed” if they don’t do more about jobs and the economy, have another agenda.
And politicians who offer health care reform with promises we can keep our doctors if we want to, only to admit later that some of the reform provisions violated that pledge.
Feel free to add other priorities in the comments.
