Another note on banana republics, George Will at his short best. Much of it is laughable, despite the looming tragedy.
Dr. Schramm, I find "Epic Journey: The 2008 Elections and American Politics" )by James W. Ceaser, Andrew E. Busch, John J., Jr. Pitney at Amazon.com at the end of your link. That is interesting, but not George Will.
Try this link.
Thank you. After making that fuss, I felt compelled to go read the article, which is depressing as hell. Today, I just cannot laugh about it, though I see what is meant it being laughable, as there is not much else we can do about our political and conomic situation in the circumstances.
Can China force the U.S. to come to its free-market senses and make their investments in our country hold value? I can't believe I ask that question. All of this is just dizzying.
When Obama was talking about rejecting the failed ideas of the past, why couldn't he have taken a broader perspective and included the failed ideas of the whole wide world into account. In relation to those, don't our old ideas of how to run an economy and a country, look pretty good?
A few people on here used to say that it would not be long before we who deplored much of what George Bush did would be missing him. They were right. I miss him, already, and I did not think I would say so this soon. Give me those "failed" ideas of the past, please. This new stuff gives me a headache.
I certainly don't mind that you included Epic Journey in the link! :-)
Mr. Pitney, I was happy to have that book called to my attention and look forward to reading it.
