While trolling the big blogs, I came across this gem in The Corner:
The president and his team are suffering from the same conceit which has afflicted many other activist governments in many other settings. They believe a central government can find a way to induce reluctant consumers to buy products they don’t want from inefficient suppliers without asking anyone, anywhere — save for corporate hot-shots — to make an economic sacrifice. Certainly, the unions aren’t to blame. Therefore, the problem must be poor “leadership.” And if the companies can’t manage themselves well, then by golly, the government will help them do it.
Read the whole thing (short) here.
Now that Bush is gone things just keep getting better and better.
