Outside Of What Would Have Been a Good Article

Admit It: The Surge Worked
By Peter Beinart

Nobody can even write a conciliatory piece saying that some things went right without that last little dig. And this one pisses me off more than any other:

Convinced that the Reagan years had forever vindicated deregulated capitalism and unfettered American might, the Bushies blithely dismissed liberals who warned about deregulation...

For Gods sake look at the records!! Bush actually pushed for regulation of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It was the Dems that stopped it. If those regs had been put in place, this collapse wouldn't have happened.
