President Obama's "You didn't build that" comment inspired much bluster from the talking heads. We almost had a substantive discussion, but the red meat was too delicious for the commentators to resist.

At first I didn't think we needed another person chiming in on Mitt Romney's remarkably clueless comments dissing 47% of the country he wants to lead speak for themselves. But when I thought more about this, I felt I needed to connect these offensive remarks to what I see in Minneapolis, and my own life.

Yes, I've worked hard, but if I am to be honest, my life was made possible by the labor and love and sacrifice of family and the hard work, brilliance and kindness of strangers.

Obama, far from shying away from supporting small business, has emerged as its true champion. Why, then, would small businesses be so hostile politically to the president when they're starting to have it so good?

When Facts Deceive

David Westin

Considering that facts are always true, it's surprising how often they can deceive us. That's why all the fighting between the presidential campaigns over the facts and whether they're being manipulated to mislead is much, much more than just petty politics. Thankfully, at least for the moment, we've come light-years from being trapped in a fiction that "fair and balanced" is the best way to cover all the serious issues of the day. Sometimes there is a right answer, and we need people in the media to have the courage to call some balls and strikes as our leaders and those around them are throwing fastballs and curves at us.

We saw the Republicans attacking Democrats hard on the business thing with their "we built this" message. This week, we Democrats have our turn, and how we both attack Republicans' weakness and address our own will be critically important to framing the fall debate.

Here in New Hampshire, a lot of the "free staters" say they don't need government and equate taxation with theft. A society like that exists already: Somalia.

Yes, We Built This -- We the People of the United States

Benjamin R. Barber | Posted 10.31.2012 | Politics
Benjamin R. Barber

Let's not argue with Paul Ryan about whether "we built it" or the government built it. Let's remind ourselves that what makes America exceptional and Americans free is that when we talk about "we," it is John Dewey's "great community," the greatness of "we the people" to which we all belong.
