Frank Rich doesn’t usually grab me much as a columnist, but in today’s column about Obama’s political opportunity around the Gulf oil spill, he really hits the nail on the head. Maybe’s he’s finally learning a thing or to from Krugman.
This all adds up to a Teddy Roosevelt pivot-point for Obama, who shares many of that president’s moral and intellectual convictions. But Obama can’t embrace his inner T.R. as long as he’s too in thrall to the supposed wisdom of the nation’s meritocracy, too willing to settle for incremental pragmatism as a goal, and too inhibited by the fine points of Washington policy debates to embrace bold words and bold action. If he is to wield the big stick of reform against BP and the other powerful interests that have ripped us off, he will have to tell the big story with no holds barred.
