    and with them the universities.  What would be far better is if our president got on national television six or seven times between now and Memorial Day and did some Ross Perot-style informercials explaining the dumbfuckery of the GOP economic model.

    Then if they have the guts, the GOP could reply with one of their village idiots and drive home the president's point.

    Obama's use of television has been just awful throughout.  He is in many ways our worst TV president.  I mean, the guy is a damn professor.  Profess, already.
