I heard Mitt Romney has been saying the country is headed in the wrong direction, so I ran a google search and found this. Assuming its accurate, what’s the message?
Well, Romney has both Hubbard and Mankiw as advisors, not to mention at least one National Review type. Neither Hubbard nor Mankiw resigned in protest, so they both thought GW was following the right policies. Neither, as far as I know, has since made noise about GW doing things the wrong way. Put another way… Romney thinks that the country is headed in the wrong direction, and he’s hired two of the architects of that wrong direction to give him advice.
Which means… he thinks that he can make things better by continuing the same policies with the same people just by replacing GW. Talk about Bush Derangement Syndrome.
