Right now, the attention of the American People is not nearly as focused as it will be in the two months before the election on November 6th of this year. Starting in September, therefore, it would be highly advisable if President Obama engages in a fight to the finish with Congress to pass the rest of his American Jobs Act. He must also beg for the assistance of the American People to help him complete this goal-- through petitioning, if necessary. You see, even if he comes up short, it will benefit him and his fellow Democrats, as it will be now made clear for all to see, that they, admirably, are willing to fight for commonsense solutions to the problems with the Economy. The Republicans, however, will be firmly identified as the Saboteurs that they truly are. If he, on the other hand, is successful, the Economy will receive an instant and positive financial jolt, with a corresponding jump in consumer and electoral confidence in Obama and Co.
Then, he should spend his stored campaign finances on thoroughly and finally explaining the overwhelming advantages of Obamacare (The Affordable Care Act) over the status quo. When the Amerian People become convinced of its benefits, they will be very inclined to show their gratitude to the Democrats who voted to make it possible. By the same token, they should become very insistent about voting out the Republicans, including the Governors and legislators who had fooled us into believing their propaganda and have consistently fought against its implementation.
Finally, he should explain to the American People, that they are faced with two(2) STARKLY different choices in the type of Government that the two Parties seek to provide. They can either choose to give the opportunity to Obama and his fellow Democrats who seek to return us to the Clinton tax rates for the top 2%, under whose Administration occurred the largest job creation in American history, as well as giving America had the largest budget surplus ever; or, they can choose Mitt Romney and/or his fellow Republicans, who seek to not only keep in place the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy (wherein one can see the resultant very poor effects it had on the middle class, right on up to this very day), but also, if one can believe it, they insist that we must double down on the Bush prescription, by adding even more large tax cuts for that top 2% (the supposed “Job Creators” according to their firmly-held ideology), coupled with a concurrent increase in income taxes on the Middle Class and even the Poor, both of whom have been hurt the most by this Bush policy-created economic crisis! This has been dubbed as “Bush on steroids” by Bill Clinton himself. The ONLY reason the Middle Class did okay during Bush is because they were living off their credit cards and their increasing home equity in a bubbling market, despite the fact that their wages were stagnating badly. Later, they would find out that this was a House of Cards that Wall Street had gambled with and lost (which turned out to be only a minor setback for them, but a major gut check to the rest of us)!
Romney and Co. would also fight to re-deregulate the financial sector whose initial deregulation started, admittedly and ashamedly, under the Clinton administration, but was doubled down on under Bush. He and his fellow conservatives’ ideology states that, “a capitalist private sector can do no wrong, and is inherently self-policing”. But it was that same lack of policing that turned what was supposed to be a simple blip of a burst Housing Bubble into the Greatest Recession since the Great Depression, all because of this Wild, Wild West ideology. THIS is the Las Vegas-style financial sector that Mitt and his Cohorts want us to return to! THIS is one of the “real and distinctly different choices” that American Voters must be made to see that they face in November! To positively impress them, Obama & Co. need to make themselves seem to be naked acolytes at the feet of the Great Master, Bill Clinton (the 23 million-job-man!), especially as far as the most important issue in the campaign is concerned, the Economy.
By the end of October, Clinton’s economic policies must, from here on in, be understood by all and sundry, as the economic North Star for America, and even for the World itself, to follow. Richard Nixon himself said, “We’re all Keynesians now.” It should now be updated to say, “We’re all Clintonians now!”
