I'm wondering why we haven't seen more members of Obama's all-star economics team stepping up to defend items in the stimulus package. I'd love to see, say, Paul Volcker out there saying what we have to do. And if Larry Summers wants a big helping of feminist forgiveness, there's not much better he could do than step up and defend family planning and STD prevention funding.
I feel like I'm in August 2008 again, wondering why these guys don't care about winning news cycles and aren't putting up hard-hitting ads. And sure, it worked out well back then, but this time around there's no legitimate analog to spending your money on the field operation.
