- Hulse, Russell Alan Born 1950. American physicist. He shared a 1993 Nobel Prize for the discovery of a new type of pulsar.
“With just two seconds left in Hulse's five-minute major,”
“At last we arrive in Belize we are staying at a rented apartment block known as the Hulse Apartments owned and manged by Dean Hulse.”
“Congress will likely pass another three-week funding extension, reports Carl Hulse: With little hope of a budget deal being reached before the end of next week, House Republicans are preparing another short-term spending measure to give the House and Senate a chance to come to agreement over a broader plan to keep the government operating through Sept. 30.”
“Leaving aside the bizarre opaqueness of the language here -- why doesn't Hulse just say that they categorically refused to accept any tax increases -- it's remarkable that Hulse does not consider it part of his job to provide any context or critique at all of the Tea Partiers' position on deficits.”
“How is it then that Hulse can write a straight-faced memo about the GOP's desire to bring fiscal sanity to the country without so much as hinting that there are reasons to doubt the party's integrity on these issues?”
“Hulse could, of course, have found a large number of economists -- including those who have worked for Republican administrations -- to note that steadfast insistence on deficit reduction, without any willingness to raise taxes, is arguably incoherent and plausibly indicative of dishonesty or detachment from reality?”
“Did Hulse really think he was serving his readers by failing to, at the least, suggest the possibility?”
“Hulse spends several paragraphs noting the desire of the freshmen Republican to "spoil for a fight" to reduce deficits, rather than to accept the half-hearted compromises that have been the norm on Capitol Hill.”
“Then, having made the case that the Tea Partiers are deficit stalwarts, Hulse pivots seamlessly to say: "The clout of the freshmen and other House conservatives was clearly seen in the decision by Speaker John A. Boehner to pull back from trying to reach a sweeping deficit deal that would have taken new revenue while tinkering with Bush-era tax cuts that many House Republicans hold sacrosanct.”
“And after quoting a spokesman for Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell pointing out Democrats have been criticizing oil company profits for decades, Hulse concluded by suggesting the Democrats had the superior strategy, including a rah-rah quote from a Democratic pol.”
