Midterm Critique

Our President is one of the sweetest, most reasonable men ever to grace this office.

That's a pity because those who have our economy by the throat and who own most of our politicians won't give up their privilege without a very hard fight. This president seems to have no spine for a hard fight. Up to the present time, he has acted as an agent for the status quo (with minor adjustments aimed at preserving it more than reforming it) and he has made himself increasingly irrelevant.

While he smiles benevolently and offers surrender to the uncompromising GOP, the concentration of wealth continues, investments go overseas in search of profit, and the American middle class is being devoured. American entrepreneurship will inevitably also decline and most of what continues to be invented here will be manufactured elsewhere.

Among the sad failures of this administration is its weak response as its Speaker of the House and Majority Leader of the Senate were used as piƱatas by the opposition amidst a flood of anonymous corporate campaign ads.
