E.J. Dionne continues to indulge in spin and New Deal nostalgia
in his latest column. His analysis that the problem is that people are tired of the fighting in Washington (rather than persistently high unemployment, a gigantic debt, an unpopular health care bill, and a stimulus that does not seem to have stimulated) is about as sound as his solution that the President ought to focus blame on Republican obstructionism by listing Republicans whose last name begins with B. Is there anything in Dionne's column that could not have been written by an intern at any liberal-leaning message shop?
