    Boehner lacks credible answers for these Americans, who are viscerally and legitimately afraid that they'll never again make $28 an hour, afford health insurance or own a home after losing the one they're in. It's the absence of honest answers, more than racism, that's turned out people brandishing signs that liken Obama to Hitler and demanding, with stupefying illogic, that government keep its hands off their Medicare. Are liberals going to deliver the answers the other side does not -- or will they be sidetracked, yet again, by their constant preoccupation with identity politics?

    The big difference between now and any other time with all of this animosity is the economy. People are scared. It makes a world of difference. If people have money in their pockets and a job to go to, they don't get very agitated about stuff. Take that away, -and watch out.

    We play with fire by focusing on racism instead of the fear about the future people have.
