My brain REALLY hurts.

John Boehner, noted economic mind and my erstwhile Congressman, offers his thoughts on how to lower unemployment.

Actually, that's not accurate. He offers his thoughts on Obama's plans (job-killing, big government, etc) and offers no alternatives of his own. The WaPo Op-Ed page is really showing off the intellectual firepower of the GOP. How is a president supposed to govern when the "loyal opposition" is so single-mindedly... mindless? Add to that the undemocratic (small d democratic) nature of the Senate, and the structural problems in our electoral system... it's no wonder Obama's grand plans are drowning in mediocrity.

  1. I'd take issue with "drowning in mediocrity," unless, of course, by "mediocrity" you mean "Congress."
