Heaven's Galt

It has been a bad weekend for the nation's aspiring Dagny Taggarts and Howard Roarks.

First, their shellacked hero got his tender feelings hurt by the President from the front row.

Then, the book that forms the naive nature of their political philosophy had reviews that showed it to be on par with 'Freddy Got Fingered'.

And then, Sunday morning, there was this from one of their club:

“I think we need to let the so-called Bush tax cuts all to expire,” Greenpsan said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”

Greenspan, who led the Fed from 1986 to 2007, said the federal tax rates should go back to what they were under President Bill Clinton. In 2001 and 2003, Bush lowered the tax rates for almost all Americans.

Paul Ryan was last seen struggling to swallow his jujube between sobs.

and if I'm not mistaken, in 2001 Greenspan The Then-Infallible stepped over the traditional limits of his job to endorse those tax cuts. Not sure about '03

It's funny that Ryan and the Randpublicans think that the aristocracy will actually associate with them once their work is done. Silly Paul.

funny that greenspan thinks the mess he made now needs fixing and he was absent during the housing bubble he did not see

greenspan must be stung upside down over wall streets trading floor.

didn't Greenspan and Rand give each other hand jobs or blow jobs for several years? or both simultaneously?
