Every once in a while a blunt truth is spoken by CNN political analysts. Such a moment occurred yesterday, as caught by the remarkable Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters:
On Monday's "Anderson Cooper 360," after CNN senior political analyst David Gergen said "what happened over the weekend with the economy and the bottom falling out of the financial markets...is the opportunity for Obama to seize the momentum back on his side," Crowley actually said, "[J]ust as foreclosures were showing up on B-17, or in the real estate section, along comes this horrific headline out of Wall Street...I mean, this is what they wanted."
Let Obama start raising taxes, and we'll have a Depression. That worked out rather well for the Democratic Party, if not for the American people.
