Third Way takes credit for Obama reg review

Joe Cowan’s Third Way is taking credit for President Obama’s call earlier this week to review regulatory rules that can hurt business.   The Third Way, which calls itself “center-left,” is battling with progressives for the ear of the White House.

In a signed email to Third Way supporters, Cowan crowed that they were responsible for the President’s action.  The Tatler got a hold of the email.  Here are excerpts:

From: Jon.Cowan [mailto:[email protected]]

I wanted to send you a quick note on an announcement today by the President that has a direct relationship to Third Way’s pro-growth economic work….

This idea was contained in a memo that Third Way sent to the President on November 22nd, 2010 – and both the memo and the specific policy proposal flowed from our October Board meeting with Austan Goolsbee.

Best, Jon
