Commentary of the Day

Ted Turner, on Jennifer Rubin:

The public will be fine with it now, because Obama has the bully pulpit and people want to trust and put confidence in their new president. But the plan won’t work, and Republicans should remember that bad policy is ultimately bad politics. Don’t be distracted when pundits wag their fingers and warn that the GOP’s opposition to Porkulus “will backfire.” The midterms are almost two years away, and if Obama’s plan isn’t working by then, he’ll pay the same price Reagan paid in the ‘82 midterms when his economic recovery plan didn’t appear to be working.
