Fiscally nuts. Socially insane.

I didn't have a chance to watch Obama's infomercial last night. I'm not the only one, though; it looks like all the big boys (and girls) had better things to do. The New York Times liked it, but Wyatt Andrews and Calvin Woodward are skeptical. They seem to have the same complaint:

His proposals — the tax cuts, the low-cost loans, the $15 billion a year he promises for alternative energy, and more — cost money, and the country could be facing a record $1 trillion deficit next year. Indeed, Obama recently acknowledged — although not in his commercial — that: "The next president will have to scale back his agenda and some of his proposals."

It's the same thing I was thinking during his acceptance speech.
