Bush hatred and Obama euphoria

This is an excellent article about what is going on behind the hatred of Bush and the euphoria over Obama being elected. I do think that politics has turned into a search for redeemers and villains more so than looking for good managers. It’s an odd thing if you can get a perspective far enough …

Political entrepreneurs

A really nice piece from Cato… “I was asked by a radio host more than once this week what I thought of the fact that some big business leaders were standing by President Obama in his pursuit of the gargantuan “stimulus” package.
