Unlocking Obama's Economic Vision (Spoiler: It's Blurry)

I would remind our President that if we always went by what a majority of Americans want his race would have remained in chains for an additional decade at least. The majority of Americans didn't support emmancipation. Having a tax policy based on majority will is akin to the old analogy of three wolves and a sheep voting what is for dinner.

Wednesday’s press conference marked the first occasion journalists have had to question the President directly – about anything – in eight months, and President Obama tipped his hat on his plans to confront the coming fiscal cliff with chastened House Republicans. In short, he will probably raise tax rates for the wealthy.

But thanks to an explosive and, as my colleague Donny Deutsch put it, testosterone-fueled defense of UN Ambassador Susan Rice, a lot of what the President also said about his plans to reduce the deficit went ignored. That’s a shame – they were quite illuminating.
