Ed goes back to his Conservative beginnings and provides a neat timeline to the present. He refers to himself as a "Liberal", although I find him a Left of Center Independent.
"The Nation" paper has cited at least one powerful TV episode from 2010 from this Host.
Particularly moving is his condemnation of the use of a commercial cable station -Foxnews - as a political/idealogical battering ram. ES can be rough, too, but he convinces us his roughness is not borne of any agenda from the station "suits".
This book was written obviously before his 2010 tour (to promote the book) when he encountered the "99-ers", those he sees as victims of politics, Americans with a great work ethic but a shrinking arena to *work in*. Still, this tome, addresses the Bush II era shift upwards (in financial support) and away from the Middle Class and recommends sane remedies.
We need more voices like Ed's.
This is the progressive narrative/talking points that have been missing in our national discussion from our president and the democrats in Congress.
Ed lays out in a common sense way how we got to this point and how we get out of our current situation, the way a progressive would like to see it be done.
I agree with about 95% of what he has written (he's not strong enough on ramping down defense spending and nation building for my tastes), but
it's all common sense talk about how the middle class is being systematically destroyed by corporate and political interests intent on lining their own pockets,
and how that will bring America even further to its knees. You may not agree 100% on the solutions he proposes, but most would have to at least partially
agree as to the problems we face and how we got there. Were many Americans to read this, it would be a game-changer. There's much fodder in here for
letters to the editor across the country. My wife and I would vote for Ed for Prez in a heartbeat.
