Goolsbee talks up Simpson-Bowles. He gets credit for that (unlike Krugman who simply frothed at the mouth over it). Then, Goolsbee rightfully pans Romney over how un-Simpson-Bowles-like Romney’s plans are. Spot-on. But then he loses it when he pretends that somehow Obama’s plans aren’t just as distant from Simpson-Bowles. Of course, Goolsbee worked for Obama for a while and may not want to speak badly of his former boss. Both Dems and Reps should be ashamed of themselves, and Goolsbee should be a little more honest here and admit that.
