How’s his post playing at TPM?
Obamiancs, whom I say will never learn, let alone digest, the old Latin phrase “caveat emptor,” are accusing Sleeper of navel-gazing or worse.
My response, posted there:
To all of you who denigrate Sleeper, I think he's got some great insights.
I don’t know that Obama is as much a neolib as the Slickster was, but, everybody who chants “change” like a Transcendental Meditation mantra will be surprised in a year or two, assuming Obama gets elected.
If George H.W. claimed to be a “kinder, gentler, conservative,” Obama will, whether he makes the claim or not, likely try to govern as a “kinder, gentler neoliberal.”
Or an updated neoliberal version of Jimmy Carter.
Caveat emptor indeed, but most buyers there probably will never check the label.
