Dems Licking Their Chops Over Romney
Some analysis from progressive Greg Sargent at PlumLine, also defining the different factions of a disastrous GOP civil war. It's sad to see so many liberal Democrats get this, while so many of the party I usually support are tone-deaf on such a critical issue, given the economic times we're in. This really is a big effin' deal, as Joe Biden might say.
Oh, sure, Romney has tried to muddy his image as a complete free marketeer, throwing a few bones to working class GOPers with tough talk about “crony capitalism” and cracking down on China. But the bottom line is that at a time of rising public anxiety about inequality and undue Wall Street influence, the GOP is on the verge of nominating someone who is to the extreme right of even some leading Republicans on the morality and practicality of unfettered profit-driven free market excess. That’s the big story here.
