Drudge is linking to this story about Democrat Representative James Clyburn -- as an example of wild socialist ideology or something, because Drudge is a libertarian conservative.
But I actually appreciate Clyburn's candid suggestion. It's straight-up Keynesian economic theory, and I very much appreciate Clyburn's willingness to avoid mincing words. It's true that, in America, Keynesian economics is generally unpopular. But to avoid being anti-populist, the Obama administration should follow in Clyburn's lead: stop trying to spin it in favorable rhetoric. Just say that you think it's appropriate to "spend your way out" of a recession.
