    You are talking over most peeps head.  The bottom line is the
    president should forget the debt right now because the average joe don't care how many trillions we owe.  They care how many hundreds or thousands they, personally owe.  They care about
    food on the table  and gas in the tank and the lights not being cut.  They don't give a ratt's but how much we borrowed from China.  They care how much they borrowed from Aunt Lilly.  She is riding them like stink on poop.  They don't care.

    The president should do a real gutsy thing and start a new deal of some sort or put people back to work under a new Federal program.  By executive order ....if necessary.   He needs to have an FDR moment.  He needs to take the pulse of the people who who care less about numbers they do not understand.  This is a nation spoon fed information.  The majority do not research unless it is about gays, guns, relgion and abortion.   Money comes first.  It trumps it all.  They don't care who made them poor.. Bush or Obama, they just want to live a life.

      are not Obama's constituency - they had no money to contribute to his election, and have none now to contribute to his reelection - follow the money! - that is the real constituency.

        We are pretty smart here at DK but we are not average
        and certainly not the average voter.  We are more informed.  Talking points and a few soundbytes are all they get and their own reality.  The voting public for the most part.  That is all.  A jingle in the pocket makes one vote and get out there to make sure it doesnt end.
