Ezra Klein appears to be a smart fella, but he's quickly becoming a one dimensional character in a play that'll soon be a sad footnote in history. America is too important to future, global economic growth to continue our fling with European socialism. Obama discovered quickly that Hope and Change was a temporary affair to seek vengeance on a failed Big Goverment, establishment Republicanism. Now, Big Government Republicanism and Democrat progressivism have both been rejected, and those in the political class who wagered their futures on either are facing a big loss. Klein's short-term profitiable niche as the up and coming progressive wunderkind will soon be a box out of which he'll find it almost impossibile to escape. It's a shame that bright, young intellectuals like Klein have been influenced by Leftist mind-barf -- they are like programmed political robots set loose on the public to spread propaganda. If Klein had insight into how predictable he's become, he might do some deep intellect-searching, but he's obviously unaware.
