Barack Obama hasn’t reached that point yet. But it wouldn’t take very much.
All he has to do is to go along with his National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform and the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, and he’ll drive us into a full-fledged depression with an increasingly shredded social safety net and a deeper hole to dig out of because the automatic stabilizers that both cause much of the “good deficits” we are now experiencing and contribute mightily to ending recessions will have gone the way of the safety net.

Not content with his cable gasbag farewell tour, Evan Bayh parked his entitled, whining ass in the NYTimes’ Op-Ed page on Sunday to bemoan the Senate he’s leaving. You would never know from his criticism of the place that he’s been there for twelve years, making it only the worse for his presence.

You will be shocked, shocked to hear that a Blue Dog Democrat who made a career out of undermining his own party is sucker-punching them on his way out. Sen. Evan Bayh of Indiana abruptly announced this week that he would not seek reelection in November. Bayh’s departure is ratcheting up insecurity in the Democratic caucus at the very moment they need to take decisive action to pass health care reform.
