Et tu Brute

First he endorses Obama, now Robert Reich, the former labor secretary under President Clinton, smears HRC for her stupid gas tax idea, going so far as to compare her to Bush.
When asked this morning by ABC News' George Stephanopoulos if she could name a single economist who backs her call for a gas tax holiday this summer, HRC said "I'm not going to put my lot in with economists.”... In case you’ve missed it, we now have a president who doesn’t care what most economists think. George W. Bush doesn’t even care what scientists think. He rejects all experts who disagree with his politics. This has led to some extraordinarily stupid policies.
Reich has gone from being just another intellectual who writes popular books explaining why the world is fucked up to being my favorite intellectual writing popular books explaining why the world is fucked up.
