For Obama not to bring up–publicly and often–what Joe Stiglitz points out here:

Unaffordable tax cuts and wars, a major recession, and soaring health care costs—fueled in part by the commitment of George W. Bush’s administration to giving drug companies free rein in setting prices, even with government money at stake—quickly transformed a huge surplus into record peacetime deficits.

But, instead, it sounds like the “cave man” is getting ready for a monumental new collapse:

“I’m prepared to take on significant heat from my party to get something done. I expect the other side to do the same.”

It’s amazing to see how completely the “opposing parties” have merged. Hopefully, this is the beginning of the end for this phony, plutocratic system, and the collapse will be the first step toward restoring meaningful democracy.

Meanwhile there are plenty of places to start to find real solutions, it’s just a matter of not digging ourselves into the same hole, over and over again.
