Obama can't win with fear alone (Robert Reich)

By Robert B. Reich
October 17, 2012

... The biggest party in America is neither Democrats nor Republicans. It's the Party of Non-Voters. Its membership outnumbers registered Democrats and registered Republicans ...

The Party of Non-Voters is mostly lower-income. Its members are overwhelmingly poor whites, African-Americans, Hispanics and young people ...

There's clear reason for members of the Party of Non-Voters to fear Mr. Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan. Their reverse Robin Hood budgets would take from the poor and middle class and reward the rich. Their determination to turn Medicare into a voucher program and turn Medicaid over to cash-starved states would hurt some of the most vulnerable members of our society ...

Messrs. Obama and Biden must also reignite hopes about what they can do, if re-elected, to steadily improve the lives of most Americans.
