"War on the Economy"?
I wish people would stop using this disgusting "war" metaphor for any large undertaking. Why not an Apollo Program for the economy, or a Manhattan Project, or a Bicentennial Celebration? Or any of FDR's alphabet agencies, like the WPA or CCC?
What are we trying to do, build or destroy?
At least with regard to the shameful, wasteful, counterproductive War on Drug-Using Americans, we've picked the right metaphor, but I was HOPING that we'd find something a little more evocative of a constructive attitude for our response to the economic crisis.
