"Who Are You Going To Believe - David Brooks Or Your Lying Wallet"


Hacks like David Brooks invest a lot of energy spouting absolute nonsense designed to convince people that the economy is great for everybody. Another reality check for Brooks:
When it comes to the way Bush is handling the economy, 23% of registered voters approve of the way Bush is handling the economy and 72% disapprove.
Brooks, presumably, would attribute that to mass delusion... at least in public. I'll assume that, despite the content of his columns, he knows better.

  1. I just read that Brooks column a few minutes ago.

    I could see right away how he had manipulated the data on some of his long list of numbered points (hmm, comparisons to 1991 combines the Clinton and Bush eras), and some others were amazingly trivial in the scheme of things.

    Oh, and in his closing, it's the Democrats who have abandoned the center? Hilarious.

  2. I am genuinely curious as to why he has a column at all. George Will has the "but I won a Pulitzer!" excuse.
