  •  Obama needs better surrogates (4+ / 0-)

    Once again on Sunday morning talk shows, very little good representation of Obama's plans was evident.

    To push back against the MSM beltway press pressing that the stimulus sucks and Obama raises taxes, why can we not have forceful messaging that:

    a. The stimulus bill includes the largest middle class tax break EVER
    b. This is politically bold of Obama in the face of the worst global economic crisis EVER
    c. The DOW index represents RICH wall street investors, not the majority of average Americans

    •  Sad isn't it? (5+ / 0-)

      We have a Democratic President and a majority in Congress but based on the media you would think conservatives are still in control!  I have given up on the Sunday talk shows as useless.  Now I just enjoy reading these journals and jeering at these tone deaf show.  I mean come on ... do I really want to listen to Boehner, Cantor, George Will, Newt Gingrich and the pathological liar Donohue at the Chamber of Commerce.  Enough is enough!

      that the stock market doesn't affect people like me.  I may suffer because of the lack of credit-flow, but, I'll get over it, and I take solace in the knowledge that it won't be as shocking to me as to others.  I can eat beans and cornbread forever.  I can grow a garden.  I have people who care about me.  I'm not sure the same can be said about some of the richies that may be affected.  Frankly, I think a little suffering might be beneficial to them.  They obviously need to develop empathy and compassion for those less fortunate than them.  The stock market is pretend.  It is useless.  I'm pretty sure we'd be okay if it completely disappeared and we returned to simple trading for goods and services.

        During the crash of 1929, it's wasn't the average working man who committed suicide, it was the super wealthy who were killing because they were no longer super rich.  Pitiful.

        Finally, America is getting a good look at what the Republican Party is and what it's built on, nothing but hate.
