Currently reading "Taiwan's brain drain prompts worries," by Austin Ramzy from International New York Times (January 14, 2016), I came across the following sentence:
but I do not see the D.P.P. being able to, or promoting, a radical overhaul of the economy.
My instinct says it means, "but I do not see the D.P.P. being able to promote a radical overhaul of the economy nor actually promoting it."
However, since "or promoting" is inserted--and separated by a set of commas--shouldn't it be grammatically correct even after it's removed?
But then,"I do not see the D.P.P. being able to a radical overhaul of the economy" doesn't make grammatical sense to me. I've never seen a noun or noun phrase after "able to."
