Failed state: President ignores poverty, 11% of homes now vacant


by Larry Geller

Eleven percent of the houses in America are empty

[CNBC, Nearly 11 Percent of US Houses Empty, 1/31/2011]

Let’s not even get into the real unemployment figures.

And this:

President Obama made history on Tuesday.

It was only the second time since Harry S. Truman’s State of the Union address in 1948 that such a speech by a Democratic president did not include a single mention of poverty or the plight of the poor.

[New York Times, Hard-Knock (Hardly Acknowledged) Life, 1/28/2011]

But the stock market is flying high. Obama’s “mission accomplished?” It should eventually get through to ordinary citizens that we’ve lost the concept of representative government in this country.

This is the result of having investment bankers as your advisors. President Obama is out of touch with reality on this issue.
 


President Obama is incapable of assuming command. He does not have the fortitude to stand up against the ongoing threats and coercions of those steering him.
