It's not surprising, there's no shortage of right-wing conspiracies out there currently.

and after my last smart-ass response, I saw an article titled Some fear GOP is being carried to the extreme.

It's sad to see someone of Greenspun's caliber defend Obama with the nonsequitor of blaming Bush.

Both Bush and Obama have politicized the economy and socialized the marketplace. I can't see how one can excuse the other.

I'm afraid that the toxic political discourse in the country will keep the right/left Democrat/Republican fight going on and nothing be done to get the government to back out of the economy. A politicized economy will fail the needs of the country, as history has made abundantly clear. I am hopeful because the Cowen piece in the NYT and the Ratigan piece in the Huffington Post seem to indicate that the left is recognizing the danger of the road we are travelling down as well.

Radix, if you look at Phil's other recent posts he's no friend of Obama either. The point of that article was simply to point out that singling out Obama for "socialism" while giving the Bush administration a pass is silly.
