We've uncovered the secret Republican Apology Machine.

Ever wonder how republicans are able to tuck their tail between their legs and apologize to Rush so quickly after they've offended their leader?

Oh Really? Looking back-O’Connor said she isn’t sure high court should have taken the "2000" case

Looking back, O’Connor said, she isn’t sure the high court should have taken the case.

“It took the case and decided it at a time when it was still a big election issue,” O’Connor said during a talk with the Chicago Tribune’s Editorial Board on Friday. “Maybe the court should have said, ‘We’re not going to take it, goodbye.’”

The case, she said, “stirred up the public” and “gave the court a less-than perfect reputation.”

“Obviously the court did reach a decision and thought it had to reach a decision,” she said. “It turned out the election authorities in Florida hadn’t done a real good job there and kind of messed it up. And probably the Supreme Court added to the problem at the end of the day.”

GREAT ?: How Much Unemployment Was Caused by Reinhart and Rogoff's Arithmetic Mistake?


How Much Unemployment Was Caused by Reinhart and Rogoff's Arithmetic Mistake?


.....................

This is a big deal because politicians around the world have used this finding from R&R to justify austerity measures that have slowed growth and raised unemployment. In the United States many politicians have pointed to R&R's work as justification for deficit reduction even though the economy is far below full employment by any reasonable measure. In Europe, R&R's work and its derivatives have been used to justify austerity policies that have pushed the unemployment rate over 10 percent for the euro zone as a whole and above 20 percent in Greece and Spain. In other words, this is a mistake that has had enormous consequences.

The trouble with Paul Krugman is that he’s too brilliant.

Tell me what I see when I look in your eyes
By DougJ April 26th, 2013

The trouble with Paul Krugman is that he’s too brilliant. So says this wise Galtian:

The thing about 1% like me there’s a limit. What’s the limit 100% of my income. Unless you say now he’s got no income let’s go after his assets. We may get there … The money either comes from taxes or other activities… or a willing and compliant Fed saying how many bars you got? $1 billion? Turn the presses on! This is simple stuff! My problem with the Krugmans of the world is that they’re brilliant … they just may be too brilliant … Losing weight is not a very scientific endeavor you consume less calories than you burn you lose weight … so let’s stop all this crap with all of these high fallutin’ thoughts and ideas. You know what happens to people their eyes glaze over, I don’t know what the hell he’s saying.

Sherrod Brown is taking a real run at the big banks … and the White House.

................

“It’s clear there’s too much Wall Street in this administration,” he told me during a Thursday interview in his Capitol Hill office.

Obama’s Treasury department is just as unfriendly to the idea of breaking up big banks, or limiting their destructive potential, under Jack Lew as it was under Timothy Geithner, Brown said.

He was particularly unhappy with a recent speech in which Treasury undersecretary for domestic finance Mary Miller argued that the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform bill already addressed the Too Big To Fail problem.

But Brown, and strange bedfellow Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), are pressing ahead anyhow with a new bill to impose much stricter capital requirements on megabanks, which they define as institutions with over $500 billion in assets.
