Ross Douthat on Why Obama's Winning

As is typical of the Times's house Rightist Ross Douthat, he gives an incisive analysis of the glaringly obvious, but makes no credible case for his conservative "solutions." In fact, in this particular piece, he doesn't even bother to mention them.

He leaves unspoken the implication that it's just obvious that Republican policies would lead to more jobs and real growth, but, in fact, all evidence is precisely to the contrary: the reason growth and job growth have been subpar is due to the effects of continuing global slowdown, in part, and, probably in larger part, to post-2010 Republican obstructionism of every single one of President Obama's efforts to take action to improve both.
