President Obama and the Tea Party Congress will most likely end up culling the absolute worst elements from the deficit reduction plans put forth so far, tie them together into a “package,” slap a “bipartisan” label on it (which inside the Beltway is close to godliness), and then ram it down our throats by triangulating against what remains of the progressives in Congress.
Politicians, pundits, commentators, and citizens must choose a side now. You’re either on the oligarchy’s side or on the people’s side. It’s D-Day in the class war.
We’ve been told lately, again from “bipartisan” sources, that American soldiers will be fighting and dying in Afghanistan well past Obama’s July 2011 “deadline,” and the war will continue until at least the end of 2014, (at which time they’ll just move the bar to 2018 or 2020 or 2030). Newly-minted “deficit hawks” should ask the question: Is it worth it to drop another $350 billion into Afghanistan? Michael O’Hanlon of the Brookings Institute, and others like him, think so, but they aren’t making an argument for staying in Afghanistan — they’re manufacturing consent. Now the Peter Petersons and the rest of them are manufacturing consent on the deficit too.
