The 1970's Redux

Fiction (the Ryan Proposal) and Non-Fiction (Obama)

Paul Krugman writes to refute claims that he is not as critical of the Obama plan as he is of the Ryan plan. 

His argument is simple, the Obama plan is a realistic, reasonable and credible plan.  The Ryan plan is, well  . . .

All this is a reminder of what Mort Sahl supposedly said in the 1970’s about Kissinger and Nixon.  If you were drowning 20 feet away from a boat, Nixon would through you a lifeline of 10 feet and Kissinger would complain that you were unwilling to meet the President halfway.
