Sunday Roundup

This week saw the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. It also saw Mitt Romney's reaction to the tragic events, which was to the 2012 campaign what John McCain's selection of Sarah Palin was to 2008 -- the kind of desperate act that makes even one's allies worry about their candidate's fitness to lead. It's a bell that cannot be unrung. The week also brought word that over 46 million Americans remained below the poverty line last year, while a new study found that poverty is "nearly invisible in U.S. media coverage of the 2012 election." When you have 46 million people living in poverty and neither the candidates nor the media want to talk about it, you know the American Dream is in serious trouble.
