Today, it seems to me, many people in this country have given up on the long view and want things to happen today or maybe tomorrow at the latest. Contrary to this tendency, that is not the way to run a reasonable economy, the country or foreign policy.
I believe Nevada voters are changing and becoming more informed; they are realizing that President Barack Obama takes the long view and has put this year’s campaign on a slow but steady course toward his re-election in November, just as he put the hunt for Osama bin Laden on a slow but steady course to bin Laden’s demise, and he put the economy on a slow but steady course toward full recovery after the disaster near the end of 2008.
What is needed now is for informed voters to come out on Election Day and support the president and the Democratic candidates for Congress so that the president will have the congressional support necessary to enact laws to speed the recovery to full employment and to lower the debt and deficit in a reasonable and balanced way.
