    It is reporting that the President said something.

    This is just sad:

    Whether or not you believe in the effectiveness of the President's efforts to address the growing disparity of wealth in this country or the increasing impossibility of the middle class' achieving financial security in the face of increased health care costs, child care costs, education and food costs, and wage stagnation, the injection of income inequality into the national conversation is a remarkable development in and of itself.  If nothing else, it shows that the President recognizes the importance of the issue and the need to emphasize it to the American people.  
    Remarkable development? Seriously? Something that should be talked about constantly and finally is mentioned in a lone interview is remarkable?  I think it's remarkable that the diarist finds it remarkable.

    And the comment about whether you believe in the 'effectiveness' of the President's 'efforts' in addressing income inequality? What efforts is the diarist referring to?
