NY Times/AP:

Current Account Deficit Hit Record $665.9 Billion in 2004.  “... private economists are worried that the huge level of resources being transferred into the hands of foreigners will eventually result in lower U.S. living standards.”  The Republicans no longer represent the interests of fiscal conservatism.

NY Times:

Liberal Bloggers Reaching Out to Major Media.  Must we demand amplification for left-wing thrice-editorialized unsubstantiated rumor?  We get enough of the right-wing variety.  How about less sensationalism, more fact, all the way around?

What value are weblogs adding?  That’s the key.  Do we need more editorials?  More independent voices analyzing and chewing over news articles?  How do you judge quality?  To whom do you mortgage your common sense on which issues?

chooses to make Mr Greenspan’s latest assessments sensational. He’s been mentioning the ‘2008 deadline’ consistently for a while.  Nevertheless, tax cuts were a dumb idea that noone wanted, in the 2000 election.  It was the issue that galvanized noone.

The Economist:

Back in their pomp.  Weren’t folks arguing back a while ago, that ‘neocons’ didn’t exist?  “The limits of neo-conservative influence may well be shown by Iran. It is axiomatic in neo-con circles that Iran cannot be prevented from acquiring nuclear weapons by a combination of diplomacy and bribery.”

Diplomacy, bribery ... and a big stick.

Will Boomers cash in?  In a word, yes.  They’ve been panicked by the Bush Administration’s moves, and are going to grab what they can.  I’ve heard it over and over and over again in social situations.  There’s going to be a flood.

Downloading Democracy.  It is semantically ironic that Republicans are pushing democracy, and Democrats seem cut off from the philosophy at present.  On the other hand, “majority rule” is much of what we’re hearing from inside the Beltway these days.

Rescission Time in Congress.  “If Republicans really want to cut spending and reduce the deficit, they have more weapons than any political party has had in decades.”  They haven’t been putting their money where their mouth is.

now that the bankruptcy bill has passed, I expect a cut in interest and hidden charges on charge card bills.  Don’t you?  Will we see it?  Nope.

Fukuyama, US parties and their foreign policy masquerade.  If you remember, you will also wonder at the disappearance of Republicans’ shouts that “we’re not the world’s police force.”  I surmise they found a way to make it profitable.  Gulf War I was particularly far in the black.
