The Economists Tell Us

His Beatitude informs us, "There is no disagreement that we need action by our government, a recovery plan that will help to jumpstart the economy." (Well, no disagreement among liberals, anyway.)

Arlen Specter informs his constituents that he voted for the Senate because, "The economists tell us that if we do nothing" this crisis will become a catastrophe. Specter must be getting his information from Obama.

There you have it, something unusual, unanimity among "the economists" -- the new priesthood. "They" have spoken. We must believe them. We simply must trust them. They know. We don't.

Well, the fact is there isn't this unanimity.

Specter. Weren't those the bad guys in Dr. No? Why, yes. They were.
