Mixed Messages

There is a relatively simple coherent message, that short term deficits are necessary and additional spending is rather small relative to the long term projected deficits, but the Obama administration really has been all over the place on the messaging. It's good that they're pushing for state aid more strongly - I guess maybe someone in there finally convinced the important people that the jobs situation still sucks - but their premature embrace of MUST CUT SPENDING rhetoric has been a problem.
