Quote of the Day

“You can say this for the former Massachusetts governor and Bain Capital executive:  He is opening up new frontiers in American politics.  Even conservative politicians used to find it necessary to pretend that they cared about the poor.  Remember ‘compassionate conservatism’?  Mr. Romney has, however, done away with that pretense.

“At this rate, we may soon have politicians who admit what has been obvious all along: that they don’t care about the middle class either, that they aren’t concerned about the lives of ordinary Americans, and never were.”

Paul Krugman, “Romney Isn’t Concerned, NYT
