Brent Budowsky makes two

Talking to Nicole Sandler, a/k/a virtual Randi Rhodes, Brent Budowsky just admitted he made an error in his campaign-era estimation of Barack Obama. Obama wasn’t (in my words) the great reforming savior that Budowsky presented to his readers and listeners.

That makes exactly two people I can think of who admitted they made a mistake. The other is Mike Farrell, who was very humble about it.

Having admitted his error, Budowsky is finally speaking a lot of ‘truth’ again. I’d missed his wisdom while he was saying unwise things such as that Obama could come out and get us a better bill. For it was on the basis of things Budowsky told us that I could conclude this was begging for hell to freeze over.

What effect this knowledge, if applied, would have had on how to push, I don’t know. I’m not the pushing type, Brent is. At the least, I wouldn’t try to get Harry Reid to stick his neck out, thinking that Obama would go along. Obama is very cautious, more than I am; once he had a position he stood firm. He is tough as nails; I am a wet noodle.
