Barry Ritholtz On Today's Politics

When Barry Ritholtz was asked which party he affiliates with, the Democrats or Republicans, he responded:

Tom dances around my party affiliation, and I tell him I have none.

Here’s why:

I am not a Democrat, because I have no idea what their economic policies are; And I am not a Republican, because I know precisely what their economic policies are.

Indeed, the entire left/right debate is false, an artificial framework for analyzing policy. In my mind, the real debate is the corporatocracy versus the individual.

And right now, the individual is losing . . .

Meanwhile, Digby notes that Obama is upset that the progressive wing isn't cheering all their accomplishments. Perhaps someone in the White House should read Barry's blog. He isn't a progressive but he sure sees it the way I do.
