Default

After the Republicans threatened to let public finances collapse last year it should have become clear to everybody that polarization is not symmetric. If you can blame Obama for anything it is that he cared about finding compromises with such an extreme and irresponsible party instead of doing the right thing.
I am a social democrat and for moderated capitalism, I am for reform instead of revolution, I am a big fan of compromise and social stability. And precisely because I am a conservative social democrat who cares about social stability I am an opponent of the radicals who would risk a default on public payments in order to extort the administration and gain political ground.
