David Brooks on Progressives
David Brooks is a columnist for the New York Times. He's been on television and radio as the "conservative" voice opposite big government types such as E.J. Dionne. I always thought him a bit wishy- washy, at best, a statist at worst. I thought he hit the nail on the head with his column that was published in the Santa Rosa Press- Democrat today:
"Today, liberalism seems to have changed. Today, many progressives seem to believe that government is the horse, the source of growth, job creation and prosperity. Capitalism is just a feeding trough that government can use to fuel its expansion."
