In an effort to push back against the false statements made by Corporatists, Mr. Reich explains reality.

2. This is required viewing for our current President!!!
Reich breaks it down and lays it out in plain English and 140 seconds!

Barrack - make this the centerpiece of your entire campaign BUT....THIS TIME actually fight for these things in you are re-elected!

11. Fuck Ronald Reagan
Edited on Wed Oct-12-11 04:25 PM by thelordofhell
One of the proudest moments of my life is when I pissed on his worthless grave. He started this nightmare of a downward spiral for anyone not making a million a year. I hope Hitler's raping his ass in hell right now.

12. And it only took a little over 2 minutes to tell the truth.
Why can't elected officials do this? Because lying about it all isn't working anyhow. How about they try the truth for a CHANGE?

I would vote for him, he has integrity, a refreshing and rare commodity in DC.

16. Spoken like a true professor, easy to understand and
with visuals. Obama needs Mr. Reich out there stumping for him, or as a member of his economic team.

18. Succinctly put...
Great talking points that follow the KISS rule. Keep it simple.
Hard to argue with and puts the ball in the RW court.
