Dr. Hanson is trying to eat his cake and have it too. Here, he criticizes Greece for spending so profligately and refusing to apply fiscal discipline, but it was only a few days ago he wrote, criticizing Germany for - to paraphrase - intentionally lending Greece so much money that they would gain control over Greece...yet also implicitly suggested Germany was bad for not lending more. The author knows history, but seems to lack the ability to see current events squarely.
