Obama Chides "Captains of Industry"; Calls for Sacrifice for "tone deaf" Execs.
In any case, there is no longer any easy fix in the offing. The solution is gone: It passed us by in the night, singing songs. It is foolish to look for what we ourselves have allowed to die. Obama know this: He sees, he comprehends , the direness and urgency of our present situation, and what it spells: Enforced change, alteration of the cultural and economic landscape on a scale not seen since the days of the Great Depression. It needn't have come to this, but on some level, a secret fatality was at work: The blindness of the GOP was their own undoing.
