President Scapegoat

May 1979
National Review;5/25/1979, Vol. 31 Issue 21, p663
The article features Senator Kennedy's views about President Carter's proposed windfall profits tax and the race for the 1980 elections. Senator Kennedy described the proposed windfall profits tax as a mere "transparent fig leaf over the vast new profits the oil industry will reap." The rhetorical skills of the candidates in the elections do not portend a rollicking campaign. The President has the job of making viable the traditional liberal Democratic formulae.
