Re: The Week in Blog: Political Theater (Jamelle Bouie & Conn Carroll)
I was disappointed when Bouie was claiming that expanded globalization as pushed by Clinton and other Democratic politicians had not benefited the poorest in the United States; I would argue that the poor spend a disproportionate percentage of their income on goods that are markedly more affordable due in large part to trade with China. For someone who claims to strongly favor free trade, Carroll's silence at the statements from Bouie was deafening. I know that The Week in Blog isn't supposed to be a debate, but it would have only taken a second to weigh in. After seeing Conn in several diavlogs, I just don't think that he is a particularly good advocate for his political disposition.
