In my column today
I deplore the GOP war against jobs. Watching Mitt Romney in Ohio today,
when he talked about American jobs, he was really advocating European
austerity. Mitt Romney could be Nicolas Sarkozy, recently defeated in
France, or David Cameron in Britain, or Angela Merkel in Germany. They
advocate the austerity that is driving Europe into recession. Romney
would do this here. Meanwhile, the global warming denial and birther
wings of Republicans are acting like the National Front parties in
Europe with a far right politics of anger and denial. When I heard
Romney talk about Europe today, it all became clear.
According to a recent Gallup poll, Americans feel that the policies of George W. Bush are far more responsible for our economic crisis than are the policies of Barack ObamaBarack ObamaPentagon head opposed Manning commutation: reports Trump transition on Africa: Asking the wrong questions Trump puts pressure on GOP Congress MORE. People should feel this. They do.
