The Goldilocks shenanigans are here again: no sooner does Obama picks a banker who has been urging him to “move to the center” that a pundit finds this new problem with it
But I think there’s another problem worth pointing out, though it’s probably not too high on Obama’s list of concerns. The Daley pick will inevitably reinforce a faulty interpretation of Obama’s first two years: That Obama governed from the far left.
and then proceeds to demolish this straw man.(apparently, the cat food commission and tax cuts to the rich were actually center left doncha know)
I remember the technique used during the first Junior: W would come with a nutty right wing idea, some nuttier guy will yell: “Not right wing enough” and the media would adjudicate: “See? It means it’s right down the center”
