Dwight Rousu
4.6
by Dwight Rousu - Dec. 28, 2010

Borosage effectively tears apart Gerson's foolish advice to Obama, as published in the right wing Washington Post.

this is a Republican conservative offering up this advice. Adopt a course that will not address our pressing problems, do nothing about growth and jobs, torpedo support among seniors and blue collar workers, alienate voters across the political spectrum, tear apart the Democratic Party, and fail to address either short, medium or long term deficits. Great advice from a former George Bush operative. Keep this poisoned chalice from thy lips, Mr. President.
