The Business Man's Curse

Stashed in: Your argument is invalid., Republicans, Misattribution!

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

Hoover May Haunt Romney, but Not Ryan - Bloomberg

US considering electing the first business CEO since Hoover.

Wow, if Hoover is representative of business CEOs, then that's not a good omen.

I think the point was that stark austerity and pure laissez-faire policy he is accused of is actually false (she being a Hoover scholar). Hoover had contempt for laissez-faire and austerity as documented in his "American Individualism" book, and thus he abanonded those policies in the white house to the point he deemed private property a fetish.

The mis-attribution sins of the three below are the same ones that I hate in everything, not just politics.

"assumed knowledge, political expedience or intellectual laziness"

Assumed knowledge, political expedience, and intellectual laziness are the three tenets of my Your Argument Is Invalid stash.
