I of course am for government spending to produce jobs. It's what all the hated Keynesians have been calling for for a long time (Krugman, Delong, Sitglitz...).
The thing is, if a government-hater like Rosenberg can blithely come out complaining that the government is not spending to produce jobs, maybe that's actually good.
The ridiculous tea-party-boosted candidates will get elected, and, like Rosenberg, not being too worried about maintaining consistency or sustained logic in their positioning, but only about Obama-bashing, they maybe can come into office and get some real government stimulus going, to get us out of our malaise.
Astounding - Democrats are the party of fiscal conservatism; Republicans become the party of government support of the country. I'll have to switch back to being a Republican.
