The qualified response of stating that big business shouldnt be in bed with big government isnt something novel to me either, let me guess its the lesser evil in contrast with labour interest collusion with government? Yup, guessed it, in theory big business in cahoots with big government is a bad thing but in practice any real attack on it is closet communism or class war.
Similarly I'm not that impressed with the partisan attack on Obama, its yet to achieve the sorts of government growth and expansionism that the Bush administration achieved with Homeland Securitas, war spending, HAARP, Project For A New American Century etc. etc.
In reality whatever the pundits say there is a consensus between neo-cons and their opposite numbers for a reason, the economy has adjusted to require the sorts of circulation in money that is only possible through big budgets and other measures incompatible with the vision of an agrarian decentralised republic that the founding fathers had.
I dislike the freemarket utopia only a little more than I do the red and fascist ones.
