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.
