4. He's ahead of himself
He makes a good argument that rests largely upon one important extrapolation. The unemployment rate is nowhere near those other examples he sites. Germany, and even during FDR, the rate was easily 3 times what it is today. It ain't great, but it ain't that bad either.

None the less, the DNC and the administration seems to have missed the boat on accessing legitimate populist anger, which is far larger than the astroturf of the Tea Party crowd.
