Unemployment is at 27% and climbing, working people are in a Depression, and the candidates are dithering around mumbling about gestures: they need to face questions from the people that are reasoned, thought-out and audible before a national audience! Tough to do given that 'the media' is the formal mouthpiece for these same corrupt pretenders all the way down the line. But 'creative people' might find a way, if it really matters to them!
Bush says he "refuses to be timid in the face of (this) significant problem." So if that's good enough for the lame-duck in the Oval Office, it ought to be good enough for more Americans!
