RE: “The Elevator Speech” by David Brooks (TIMES, 9/4/12)


How typical of David Brooks to be opposed to the best of the three options he thinks Obama could stress in an “elevator speech.”

Dealing with “broken capitalism” should definitely be Obama’s top priority.  Another New Deal should be the rallying cry of the Democratic Party.  That means the U.S. economy needs a massive federal jobs program.

Unfortunately, it being a presidential election year and the reactionary Republicans controlling the House of Representatives, nothing can be done now.

Does Brooks think Romney has a program of action, that he has  revealed himself better than Obama has?  Or, is he still betting on Paul Ryan?
