Don't Bring Me DownLess than 100 days until the election.
Ten days or so ago, I read this post by Digby about the speech Jimmy Carter gave in 1979 -- during the first major oil crisis -- trying to tell the country what we needed to do to save our country. But no, the American people had to elect a moron who made them feel good, rather than re-elect a president who had vision about our future. So now, 29 years later, we are in a major mess, in large part due to ignoring the energy crisis for all those years, but also due to Republican tactics that have just about destroyed the middle class and America's standing in the world. Thanks, assholes!
