US economy

Why did the Obama campaign punt instead of fighting back?

I am confused. Hilary Rosen, who is described as a "political consultant who advises the DNC" is being criticized by Obama's campaign staff:

David Axelrod, Obama’s top strategist, tweeted: “Also Disappointed in Hilary Rosen’s comments about Ann Romney. They were inappropriate and offensive.”

And Stephanie Cutter, Obama’s deputy campaign manager, tweeted: “Families must be off limits on campaigns, and i personally believe stay at home moms work harder than most of us do.”

On the other hand, Greta Van Susteren of Fox News is defending Rosen and her remarks against both the Romney and the Obama folks.

I agree with Susteren. What Rosen said is only being attacked when taken out of context of the question and her complete (not truncated) reply on CNN interview.

Not Enough To Return Teachers Automatic Dues Payment.

Let's face it, the middle class is loosing the power struggle with conservatives. Republicans and conservative Democrats have long been enacting policies that hurt and diminish the influence of Americas strong post war middle. North Carolinian's are told our lack of unions protects us, yet tens of thousands of our jobs have been exported to even more low wage, low regulation territories. Now the NCAE has been punished for supporting "progressive" causes. It will not be enough to return the teachers automatic dues payment. I support restoring hope to all North Carolina families by eliminating our regressive Right to Work legislation. All workers deserve an opportunity for an improved future, our new economy will not satisfy the people until this is true. Unions have done this in the past and deserve a role in returning power to the middle class.

It is hardly surprising given the current economic and financial market news that the top national issue for the fall is how to deal with the US economy and the federal deficit.

Job Growth in april 2010 bikini chart

this bikini shaped chart of job losses and job growth is stunning.

I am a yellow dog Democrat, even before I see the charts. But I would think a few Republicans who are earnest and open minded, would have to scratch their heads. What is fiscally conservative and productive about the Republican regimes?
