Link: The Origins of the Enthusiasm Gap

Robert Reich:

A stimulus too small to significantly reduce unemployment, a TARP that didn’t trickle down to Main Street, financial reform that doesn’t fundamentally restructure Wall Street, and health-care reforms that don’t promise to bring down health-care costs have all created an enthusiasm gap. They’ve fired up the right, demoralized the left, and generated unease among the general population.

This is precisely why I pretty much figure everything’s going to heck, sooner rather than later.
