Beinart's critique of Obama's State of the Union Address
Been traveling, and no time to post lately. Just wanted to note Peter Beinart's critique of Obama's state of the Union speech. Finally someone with a public presence is saying what I've been arguing here for over a year: the main point that Obama needs to argue, and that the media need to take heed of, is that strong government and strong capitalist economy are not opposites. On the contrary government investment in infrastructure, health, education, and research are the keys, along with regulation that keeps competition fair and the public safe. I hope more voices join in.
