Don’t remember who coined the phrase Peter Pan Politics but I love it. It refers to Peter Pan telling kids that if they believed strongly enough, they could fly too.
In this case, however, it refers to President Obama seeming to say that if we raise taxes so the government can grow everyone will become successful in life. Where have I heard this before?
Oh yes, I remember. 90 years ago, the Russian Communists took control and they too had their day in the sun with Peter Pan Politics. We all know, or should know, Communism failed entirely and the only rich folks that came out of it were the political rulers.
