I was quite proud of my creative genius last night, thinking I had coined the phrase in this post's title. I repeated it around the house so many times, charmed by its lyricism, that dear dagny had to start pouring cold water on me with eye rolls and even a few pointed verbal cues. I was wrong of course - it even has an entry in the online Urban Dictionary, but my definition would be different from that passe version. When I summarized the President's re-election nomination acceptance speech with those words last night I was thinking much more along the lines of American Spectator's Aaron Goldstein:
President Obama says, "The path we offer may be harder, but it leads to a better place." But how much more debt will this country have to accumulate before we reach that better place?
