The Education of Mick Mulvaney—-He’s No David Stockman!

I am incredibly disappointed to see my hopes about budget director Mick Mulvaney go up in flames. See, I thought that as a budget director, he would be more like David Stockman than many of the successors we have have since he left his job after serving in the Reagan White House….What I am most disappointed by is what looks like a total abdication of what made him such an unusual Republican representative. As I wrote: Better yet, like Stockman, he isn’t afraid to go after the Republican sacred cow—defense spending.
