"He realized too late that “there’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects” when it comes to public works." - "The Education of President Obama", the New York Times Sunday Magazine.

Tactical error to admit that. Ugh.

Good article, but probably could be written about an president after two years. I think you had commented about this problem a long time ago.

Another reason not to go into politics, "Perhaps he should not have proposed tax breaks as part of his stimulus and instead “let the Republicans insist on the tax cuts” so it could be seen as a bipartisan compromise."

Republicans propose "Cap-and-trade" as a market-based way to regulate emissions...if democrats propose the same thing it become a job-killing cap-and-tax.

Everything is for appearance.
