  •  what if Obama was a leader who led the 99%? (8+ / 0-)

    then the elected officials would follow

    what if the 1% were shamed about what they have done - a president, like FDR and Teddy Roosevelt were able to do it

    what if the Democrats returned to the issue of poverty which they walked away from by 1980?

    what if Obama brought into his cabinet Krugman and Stiglitz who have argued for a larger stimulus to bring back jobs, rather than the austerity people? If people like this had the president behind them and made the case to the media, legislation would follow

    what if Obama was the source of the graphic on income inequality we say this week and pointed out that it was a national crime what has been done

    and knocked Americans out of their adolescent behavior?

    there are lots of things Obama could do

    for example, pardon Bradley manning and other whistle blowers to set an example
