Obama must take a page from FDR, Harry Truman, and JFK-- that is he must shed his "cool", undramatic persona, and speak with passion about what the right wing has been trying to do to him, his administration, and the liberal ethos which has contributed so much to our country's history and success. A job is the heart and soul of a person. Lack of jobs is disabling people, wrecking them, destroying families, killing them. And our President has to feel anger and be passionate about this; he must thunder at the lack of jobs, not tell us the reasons for it. The reasons are immaterial. What is he going to do about it? What did Roosevelt do about economic injustice? Kennedy? Truman? Were they ever “non-dramatic” about it? Obama must shed coolness. Coolness may be fine for the Harvard campus or the Democratic political salons. The world is a brutal and nettlesome thing and you must be a fighter when you represent the unprivileged, the mass of our population. He must go to battle and he must be hot about it.
