I may not be the most disinterested observer out there, but let me say this anyway. Stephanie Cutter? It was fairly obvious, during this interview, that you were thinking to yourself Is this what I went to Georgetown for? Am I really letting myself look like an idiot on television by having to repeat this stupid 5 trillion thing when Piers Morgan – PIERS MORGAN – is calling me on my own contradictory rhetoric? Was it really worth it?
In order: Apparently; yes, you are; and if you wanted your opinion to matter then maybe you should have worked for a political campaign that doesn’t define you down to your genitalia.
PS: By the way, there is a third option, beyond just raising taxes/cutting services. You grow the economy. I know that doing that sort of thing is considered High Magick by the Obama administration – but it’s not, really.
