Herbert Love

We’re reminded again why we love Bob Herbert. In today’s column, there’s this:

What I know is that the renegade clowns who ruined this economy, the Republican right in alliance with big business and a fair number of feckless Democrats — all working in opposition to the interests of working families — have no credible basis for waging war against serious efforts to get us out of their mess.

And this:

More than 4.4 million jobs have been lost since this monster recession officially got under way in December 2007, and we’ve got people wigging out over earmarks. Folks, get a grip. Some earmarks are good, some are not, but collectively they account for a tiny, tiny portion of the national budget — less than 1 percent.

Herbert is a voice of reason. He doesn’t forget recent history. He sees things in context. And he understands the needs of working class families…unlike most of the twittering class.Cabbage Rabbit
