He's serious.

I believe George Bush did much compromising and across-the-aisle consensus building as governor of Texas. And I seem to remember a lot of information about that in his presidential campaign. If true, then what has changed if he hasn't?

Off topic but related: Interest rates are off recent lows but hardly screaming. Starts are up and home resales are posting records. 30 year money is 6.35%, T-bills are still under 2%, and the prime and eurodollar rates are below 5%. Given that the latest info is always 'in the market' where's the crowding out? Is the Market saying the half tril is no big deal?
