A last open letter predicted policies would fail; Lincoln, arson attack on rich.

The actual expletive to be used is here that the arsonist really was saying, “Expletive the working man and woman” and their middle class families.
Is this kind of thing — house burnings of homes presumed to belong to “the rich” — directly connected to the President’s harsh language over two years? Time will tell.
But there can also be no doubt that, with his back to the political wall, his party routed in the last election, and millions of Americans set to endure a tax increase come January 1, President Obama is, however grudgingly, doing precisely what Jack Kemp told him two years ago he should be doing — at a minimum.
Kemp used one of his favorite quotes from Abraham Lincoln — “Mr. Lincoln” as he reverently referred to the nation’s first Republican and pro-growth president — in his appeal to Obama: “I can’t believe,” said Lincoln, “in a law to prevent a man from getting rich; it would do more harm than good. So while we do not propose any war upon capital, we do wish to allow the humblest man an equal chance to get rich with everybody else.”
Jack Kemp agreed.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
