    What is it with you people? Articles have popped up like mushrooms on cowshit, sneering that Bill Clinton destroyed America by ramming the Glass-Steagall repeal down our unwilling throats. Is there like a conference call, where you all agree “OK, this is the dumb idea that we are going to shop around as if it made any sense” as if endless repetition of a lie might one day render it truthful? How very rovian.

    Did someone really say anything like he “destroyed America” or did they say his role in that was a terrible mistake? Because it was. People – reasonable and knowledgeable people, like Dean Baker for example – are pointing out that Clinton’s economics actions weren’t the wonderland they’ve generally been made to be by many of us on the left. Recognizing this is an important thing to do if we want to learn from history.
