The "Doing Something" Theory Of Good Governance
David Ignatius:["]The best sign that the economic engine is really repaired would be a joint plan by the White House and congressional Republicans to trim the federal budget deficit over the next 10 years. [. . .]["]
Leaving aside the merits of such things, how the hell would some random policy decisions be a "sign that the economic engine is really repaired." [. . .I]n what possible sense would Congress doing some stuff prove that the economy is all better?
Of course Atrios is right, but you know who else plays the "a productive Congress means things are better" game? The Beltway Dem pundits and bloggers, led by Ezra Klein. How is their nonsense any less stupid than Ignatius'?
Speaking for me only
