Alan Greenspan’s new memoir has come out swinging against Bush, the neocons, and their boneheaded economics. He takes them to task for their “reckless spending and politically driven economic agenda” and says they “deserved to lose control of Congress in 2006.”
He also dropped this little gem: “I’m saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: The Iraq war is largely about oil.”
His criticisms have landed him deep in the repressed subconscious of Bob Novak. Like he does with all his arch-enemies, Novak has apparently been inserting Greenspan into his Roman Mythology fetishist fantasies:
[Greenspan] suddenly emerges from the sea, naked like Venus, as a Democrat. He loves Bill Clinton, he loves tax increases, he’s dismissive of Ronald Reagan as an amiable putz, he detests the Bushes.
