Once again, Jim Pinkerton and I faced off on the most pressing issues of the cyber-moment for Bloggingheads.tv. Regarding Thursday’s health care summit, we agreed that it won’t be of much use—to either side. (I explain this further here.) But we bickered over Jim’s assertion that the stimulus—and economic recovery—has been stymied by environmentalists and their darn rules, especially when it comes to high-speed rail projects. I asked Jim repeatedly to cite a specific project that has not taken off because of those pesky environmental regulations. Astute watchers will note Jim couldn’t come up with one. Comity was restored, though, when we both explained why we enthusiastically support the Demand Question Time campaign. Finally, we mulled Rahm Emanuel’s past, present…and future.
