"Could Romney turn out to be a modern-day FDR? Let’s hope so. This presidential campaign may not feature big-time ideas, but the next president had better be a big-time reformer. We have banks too big to fail and a welfare state too big to succeed. We have unsustainable public debt and unsustainable behavior by parts of the private sector. We have too much dependency on government and too much disparity in private wealth and power. We lack enforceable rules to constrain government spending and the government’s printing of money, and we have far too many regulations that limit freedom and hamper entrepreneurship in seemingly minor but cumulatively crippling ways. We have too much crony capitalism and too little democratic capitalism, too much legalism and too little rule of law."
— Never thought I’d see the day, but I agree with Bill Kristol on his analysis of our domestic malaise. (via jgreendc)
