Hang tough, Mr. President

A swelling chorus of advice is emerging in recent days amongst progressive thinkers and commentators about the ongoing fiscal policy negotiations in Washington. The message: “Hang tough Mr. President.”

James Protzman over at Blue NC has posted an example — a nice little video from former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich [1].

But other are saying the same thing:

Robert Kuttner says a lot of the same things in this column, entitled “About time: Obama finally gets tough.” [2]

Meanwhile, the experts at the Center on Economic and Policy Research have weighed in on the hysteria surrounding the so-called “fiscal cliff.” [3]

Finally, Paul Krugman exposes the true nature of the conservative con game in this NYT column [4].
