My2K and the Fiscal Cliff: Like We Need Another Gimmick

A politician needs to, in many ways, do the same thing. But what happened to the power of persuasion, or good old-fashioned rhetoric? I thought that's what Obama is supposed be a good at. He's the great rhetorician, the master orator of our time.

The best he and his team could come up with was #My2K?

This must be a bad dream.

If you find the time, get Thurston Clarke's book, The Last Campaign: Robert F. Kennedy And 82 Days That Inspired America.

That's what we need now. Somebody with the power to come on television, speak to the American people and have a genuine and authentic impact.

I will post a bit more RFK over at my Facebook page, because at this point we could all use a little inspiration.
