Murdoch's Advice for Obama

News Corp Chairman Rupert Murdoch has some unsolicited advice for President Obama: According to The Australian, Murdoch is saying at Davos that Obama must “use some of his political capital now to drive through policy changes.” Come on, Rupert: You think David Axelrod dispenses platitudes like that? Murdoch also said he was “a bit of a skeptic” when it comes to Obama’s stimulus. "If we try to cure it overnight, I think we are going to build a bigger crisis for ourselves," he said, and went on to warn against protectionism.
