“Obama in Rally Mode, Steps Up Jabs at GOP” (TIMES, 9/9/10)


          President Obama thinks Democrats are “fighters for the middle class” and Republicans are “protectors of millionaires, billionaires and special interests.” 

          Who then, speaks for the workingclass?

          Though there are some who are in denial about its existence, the USA has a large number of people who depend on a wage for their survival. Probably 17 percent of them are unemployed.

          If the unemployment rate is not reduced, there will be no real economic recovery. Therefore, Obama should act like a sitting president, not like a candidate for office. He should advocate the implementation of a massive federal jobs program. His re-election should not be his main concern.
