“Rising to the Occasion” by Bob Herbert (TIMES, 9/7/10)


          In commenting favorably on Obama’s $50 billion proposal for infrastructure improvements, Bob Herbert lamented that the “plan won’t help Democrats in November. It’s already too late for that.”

          I wonder. It seems to be enough of an effort to give hope that Obama is finally addressing the economic  downturn in a more vigorous way. It very well might breathe some life into the Democrats’ election campaign. 

          There are still 55 days until the voters go to the polls, plenty of time to make it clear that the administration is seriously  seeking a way to put people back to work.

          Moreover, if the Republicans oppose Obama’s proposal too vigorously, they could hurt themselves badly.
