The Hidden Ideological Debate

Republicans are being unfairly accused of conspiring to tank the economy to weaken the president further, Michael Gerson writes:
They must assert that the case for liberal policies is so self-evident that all opposition is malevolent. But given the recent record of liberal economics, policies that seem self-evident to them now seem questionable to many. Objective conditions call for alternatives. And Republicans are advocating the conservative alternatives - monetary restraint, lower spending, lower taxes - they have embraced for 30 years.
