Yet again a politician ‘appeals’ to people he thinks call themselves “middle class”. Ugh.
It looks like Obama is aiming for an “I believe” Presidential campaign. In the speech he moves from a belief in the free market to belief in military might, in welfare, to a belief in considerable government intervention.
To get there, he needs an opponent, so he has created what he calls ‘social Darwinism’. He calls it the biggest challenge of this era. He says this ideology wants society to allow people to lie where they fall. He says he is against that.
