"Obama's speech addressed progressive issues such as jobs, women's rights, and clean energy. But it left the need for a larger economic transformation untouched."

Fine words are nice but if there is no action behind them it's just one more day for them to applaud and have their moment in the limelight. For millions who are struggling in this Country not much will change in their lives today or tomorrow. I hear the middle class mentioned, but what bold initiatives will be done to help the desperate poor, who nightly sleep outside, who listen to the cries of their children who will not have a meal today, the Elders who are in need of heat and must sit in one room, the only one they can keep warm by the stove.

We could do bold programs that would put people to work, repair our infrastructure, build more affordable housing while using green construction, place teachers in the classroom, hire Social Workers to help the forgotten, the list is long but Washington is short on doing much excepting wasting time while allowing the Theives to continue, the poor to suffer, and the environment to be raped.
