9. Well, dissent is fine, except when one goes to a Democratic site
and finds ONLY vitriolic dissent. The thing is that the decision has been made on the banking issue. People can say "I disagree" but when they make comparisons of Obama to Bush, I just think they have gone too far (we almost need a new Godwin's Law -- that when you compare Obama to Bush you are not really making an argument anymore, just attacking for attack's sake, and that goes for a certain NYT writer not named Krugman). Since I assume some of this is about Paul Krugman, you know sometimes I agree with him, and sometimes I don't. I didn't realize he had morphed into "God" (same with that Matt Taibi RS writer who everyone has now started to worship).

I think Obama should be criticized, and there should be a healthy debate. What I saw yesterday was not healthy. People were calling for class warfare and revolution. Count me out on that. Although .... interestingly, I equally deplore the mealy mouthed "Moderate Democrats" Bayh formed in the Senate. They are not really for anything either; they're just trying to throw spitballs at the President for pure political gain.
