Giving Democrats Credit -- And Taking It

The Kaplan Daily's David Ignatius has an op/ed on the lack of credit being given - and taken - over the TARP and auto company rescues of the past 2 years. We like his opening:
"Constant repetition of anti-government rhetoric in our political echo chamber has dulled Americans into overlooking an important and perhaps surprising fact: We have just lived through one of the more notable successes of government intervention in modern times - the auto and bank rescues that almost surely saved the country from another Great Depression."

He goes on to say that Obama and Democrats should stop apologizing and running away from this success story. That, however, would require more political savvy and larger sacs than many Democrats seem to possess around election time. Pity.
