From The Thom Hartmann Show Feb. 9, 2010:

Thom Hartmann debates free trader, the Wall Street Journal's Stephen Moore about whether it is more important to have capitalism or democracy. Stephen Moore of course feels that free trade is going to help the economy while Hartmann reminds him that it's wrecked it. Moore claims that the last forty years have been some of the most prosperous for America and as Thom points out, it has been if you're rich. When Moore tries to claim that the average household's standard of living has improved, Hartmann reminds him that the reason for that is people living off of their mortgages and incurring more and more debt.

This sure as hell is not ClusterFox where Greta Van Susteren or I've lost count of how many of their other shows just let this clown rattle off talking points unchallenged.
