Re: Values Added: The Vision Thing (Michael B. Dougherty & Daniel Strauss)
The reason President Obama can't coherently give a vision for saving or broading the middle class is because he doesn't have one nor have the previous 3 or 4 men who have occupied the presidency. It's been eroding for 30 years now and with the country in a quasi economic depression it can no longer be hid.
Michael's vision of middle class made up of government employees may be the direction we are headed in - albeit not a good one but probably the best both political parties have to offer, especially the democrats. The republican trickle down theory of "helping lift all boats" is a joke.
