Great show Mr. Henwood. B. Bartlett segment was fun to hear an insider take down their own and first time I have ever heard a cogent argument about the failings of the democrats. He pulled no punches on either side and that is surprising and awesome to hear. Although the sniffing was abit distracting. Jared Bernstein was interesting, credible and seemed to be able to make the tax code accessible. Very nice.
Is it possible that Romney is counting on stealing the election, thus doesn't worry about what he says? Is he just rubbing our noses in 1% excrement only to walk into the White House uncontested? Is this possible in America today? They apparently murdered the Kennedys, Martin Luther King and did the 9/11 operation so it's not beyond their capabilities.
Henwood's Bartlett half-hour was excellent. Because I've assumed the money that will make a difference will back Obama and that "they" have already written off Romney as a light-weight, I was shocked to hear that the Wall Street moguls "hate Obama." Although reminiscent of the Clinton years, this presidency is different. My impression has been that Clinton was respected by his opponents despite their rhetoric. But this time around--aside from the very real racism on the Right--I wonder if the feeling among the Big Boys and the Republican party isn't more contempt than hatred for having got almost immediately much more than they expected, at a cost of no more than a public scolding. The lack of respect for the Democrats--and their apparent cowering before the Republican juggernaut--that Bartlett addressed needs to be addressed by the Democratic party. Many thanks to Doug Henwood--I try not to miss any of his programs. Best to KPFA!
