Myths of 1996 22.1.2010 The Atlantic - Matthew Ygblesias
I don’t want to object too strenuously to anything Bruce Reed says in this column, but I do think that veterans of the Clinton White House have a tendency to overstate the role of tactical political shifts in their post-1994 success: Finally, Democrats should remember that a party willing to take voters’ lessons to heart has [...]

Drumbeat: January 21, 2010 21.1.2010 The Oil Drum
Gas could burst Peak Oil theorists’ bubble The perennial popularity of forecasts projecting crude prices rising indefinitely reflects the intuitive appeal of the “Peak Oil” theory, which predicts that global oil production will reach a maximum rate and then inexorably decline. Everyone can grasp the seductively simple hypothesis, which encapsulates deep-rooted insecurities over energy supply. Surely everyone must understand that oil is a geologically scarce resource that must one day run out. To many who see the writing on the wall, it appears that peak production must be fast approaching, if it has not already occurred. Nor does it take much economic training to surmise that the price of a commodity should normally increase if its supply ...

Citizens United campaign funds ruling leaves Democrats reeling 21.1.2010 The Guardian -- World Latest
Supreme court decides big companies can openly run political adverts in fresh blow to Obama after Massachusetts vote The US supreme court has delivered a fresh blow to the Democrats, already reeling from their stunning defeat in the Massachusetts Senate race, by opening the floodgates to huge corporate funding of campaigns for or against presidential and congressional candidates. In a decision that could have a profound impact on future elections, the court overturned a 20-year-old ruling that barred businesses from paying for campaign adverts. The decision in what is known as the Citizens United case will allow big businesses – such those selling arms, drugs or insurance companies – that already wield influence through lobby groups to ...

Obama takes on the bankers 21.1.2010 The Guardian -- World Latest
President Obama targets Wall Street with reforms that echo classic Depression-era legislation that prevented commercial banks from making risky trades Officially it was blandly named the Banking Act of 1933 but around the world it is better known as Glass-Steagall, the ground-breaking piece of legislation that prevented commercial banks which took deposits from embarking on risky trading activities. Carter Glass and Henry Steagall were the revolutionaries of the time. The years after the Great Depression sparked a debate in the US about how to prevent such devastation hitting the economy again, after nearly 5,000 banks collapsed. President Barack Obama, hurt by the historic loss of a Democratic seat in the Kennedy stalwart state of ...

DCCC Categorizes Pro-Free Market Cato Institute as a 'Right Wing Extremist Group' 21.1.2010 NewsBusters
Last night, after Scott Brown took one of the Massachusetts U.S. Senate seats, there was a call by some in the media and even among some prominent Democrats to modulate by shifting away from the so-called "far left." One might think a start would be to tone down some of the rhetoric, take a step back and consider retooling the strategy, instead of lobbing more bombs. But the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has employed the same protocol as some of the radical fringe elements on the left in attacking Richard Hanna, a candidate for New York's 24 th district (h/t Ben Smith of Politico ). [emphasis added] "While making today's announcement that he will once again run for Congress in New York's 24 th district, ...
