PG+ appears to be free right this second. Go and read Dennis Roddy's journal entry entitled A Barrage of Nothing, inspired by President Obama's speech in Pittsburgh yesterday.
Now in my own view, Roddy expects a little much from our Presidents. I hope passionately for Presidents to not actively make very costly blunders, to refuse to sell out important government services and protections, and to try their earnest, intelligent, educated and creative best to massage and tinker around the edges of managing an impossible economy, culture and world as best they can.
However when Roddy concludes:
His speeches remain eloquent, but meaningless; so many empty box cars rolling past an audience waiting only for a chance to cross the tracks and resume such lives as fate has given them because the fates are all they have. Intervention, clearly, is not the forte of the man who has come to save them. (PG+)
I think two things: 1) It is a good thing for the administration that Dennis Roddy and PG+ live ordinarily behind a pay wall, where nobody will pass them about, where search engines do not tread and where nothing can ever go viral and 2) Obama needs to plug that hole, daddy, and within the month. That is if he desires to retain even the pretense of remaining Obama.
