29. Really. Here's what I think the strategy is:
Edited on Thu Feb-04-10 02:23 AM by Marr
Year One: Hand money to Wall Street as fast as possible, continue corporatist policies. Sell insurance industry handout as "healthcare reform".

Year Two: Election year. Need to re-energize the base, which will be angry and disaffected after a year of repeated betrayal. Play liberal again, but nothing too substantive. Pretty words, a little kabuki theater, political WWF stuff. Maybe a social wedge issue or two.

Delay the really overt economic screwing until after November (Debt Commission).

Year Three: Repeat Year One.
