Obama Takes a Lesson from Elizabeth Warren

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011


At the risk of turning this space into an Elizabeth Warren admiration society, I need to post this one. This is one of the best defenses of liberalism that I have ever heard and it’s nice to see Obama taking the cue. Infrastructure, education, police protection, a dominant military to protect our economic interests abroad, all of these are part of the story of what has made America so successful over the years…and all of these things are brought to you by the government.

More on this later, but the lesson here is that Democrats need to learn how to defend their philosophy more effectively and aggressively. The things I listed above are centrist ideas that a large majority of Americans support, but they don’t come for free. They need to be paid for.
