Re 'Obama's Forgotten Base'

Needed: a short-term program

Obama's programs are all aimed at the long-term recovery of the United States. Alongside there should have been a program conspicuously targetting the worst hit who constitute the majority of Obama's power base—much in the manner of handling disaster relief to give them a sense of their problems being addressed with urgency. The possibility of such programs should be explored for crisis management—if not before the midterm poll, at least before the 2012 polls.
