Too bad Samuelson didn't explain why. Historical analogues he discussed misstated facts, misinterpreted others, and omitted what's most important.

Samuelson covers politics, business and economic issues. He makes economics look like pseudoscience. He's notoriously neoliberal. He moralizes over a nonexistent deficit crisis. 

He prioritizes austerity. He wants Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid cut more than already. He wants Obama to target them more than planned.

On December 31, he headlined "Obama's leadership failure."

He wants ordinary people, those most disadvantaged, and America's elderly to bear the burden of deficit cutting. Obama hasn't done enough, he said. He's "profoundly hostile to the national interest."

Samuelson deliberately misleads readers. He shames himself in the process. He's got plenty of company.

On January 19, Los Angeles Times columnist Doyle McManus headlined "Obama, Version 2.0," saying:

Obama "learned at least three important lessons from" term one. They shaped his thinking. 

"Confrontation sometimes works better than conciliation." He "hoped to be a bridge builder." More recently, "he's been more of a bridge burner."

He "told Republicans".he flatly refuses to negotiate over the debt ceiling, and warned that if a showdown over the issue damages the economy, it will be on their heads."

Fact check

Decades ago, both parties agreed to destroy America's social contract. Obama accelerated the process. Out of sight and mind, he, key Democrats, and Republicans pursue it.

Rhetoric belies official policy. Both parties are in lockstep. Not a dime's worth of difference separates them. They agree on issues mattering most.

They plan third-worldizing America. Police state laws target non-believers. The world's largest gulag bears testimony to current policy. Much worse ahead is planned. 

McManus claims otherwise. He'll use term one lessons learned going forward, he said. He'll "spend more time enlisting ordinary voters in his battles - over the debt ceiling, gun control and everything else."
