    Nothing is their doing.

    It's all still Bush's fault, or the Tea Party's fault, or talk radio's fault.

    Now Joe Biden is out on the trail making the case that his boss has faced bigger challenges than Roosevelt.

    Yeah, World War II and the Great Depression were no big thing. These people are shameless.

      As everyone should know by now, the promises of socialism aren't affordable.

      Robbing Peter to pay Paul is inefficient and kills Peter's incentives.

      The result is usually economic stagnation, depression, and eventually a crisis that frees people from the government's confiscatory repression.

      Because America was the only large economy standing after World War II, it took much longer than usual for the problems of socialism to appear in our economy.

      Also, the government scaled back many of FDR's policies during the post-war boom. In winning the war, we also won a generation of economic spoils.
