“Even the aghast and ostensibly economically literate The Wall Street Journal tells [Thomas Picketty] to read Animal FarmAnimal Farm, hmm. Isn’t that Orwell’s political parable of farm animals where a bunch of pigs hog up all the economic resources, tell the animals they need the food because they’re the makers and then scare up a prospect of a phony boogie man every time their greed is challenged? Sounds familiar. Hey conservatives, it’s time to stop the childish Cole War name-calling and deal with facts. Either that or be relegated to the kids and the crazy uncle table at holiday dinners.”

“One thing that I want to underscore here that I think is really important is this is the president. The executive himself reining in his own power. It’s not coming from Congress. It’s not coming from the judiciary. And that is remarkable and incredibly unusual.”
