Sad Reality

Robert Reich is right on today, even as he sounds a bit sad and subdued. He makes the case that Obama turning his attention to jobs now is nothing but rhetoric, as the debt deal has tied his hands to do anything about jobs. Sad and true. One wonders if Obama realizes it. His given away all his power and bargaining leverage. How long can he pretend he is trying to do something for the American people?

About JP

We're two guys who met in college, in 1980. We've stayed in touch, and like to talk politics, current events, music and religion. JP is nore liberal than Sid, but not in every way. We figure that dialogue stimulates ideas, moderates perspective, and is in general friendly. These are things we need badly in these dangerous times. The blog name is taken from a song by Bruce Cockburn.
