Robert Reich is absolutely correct in this commentary from public radio’s Marketplace broadcast today:
For the next two years, Republicans will try to paint Obama as a big-government liberal who’s responsible for the continuing bad economy. Obama’s best hope for reelection will be to reframe the debate, making the central issue the power of big business and Wall Street to gain economic advantage at the expense of the rest of us.
Reich makes a compelling case that Pres. Obama (and our country) will be much better served by taking a lesson from FDR’s 1936 approach which was epitomized by his quote:
“Never before have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today,” he thundered. “They are unanimous in their hate for me — and I welcome their hatred.”
Robert Reich has been making a lot of sense lately!
