The President's Pathetic Policy: "Have you no sense of decency sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?"

It's pathetic if the mighty U.S. is really forced to beg corporations to produce here out of Warren-Buffetesque philanthropic urges.
But it'€™s especially pathetic for American liberalism, which has always been most appealing when it stood up against the condescension of "alms givers" but which now celebrates wealthy philanthropists with nauseating ease .... "Giving back" is the credo of Hollywood celebrities, not New Deal liberals.  Democrats are supposed to be the party of government -- government that establishes a foundation for the essential dignity of working people -- €“not the party that sucks up to the Google guys and the Gates Foundation. -- Obama'€™s Charity Capitalism | The Daily Caller
