As President Barack Obama finishes his fifth month in office, Ed Schultz talks about GOP’s
“obstruction plan” against Obama’s efforts to get the country out of the
economic crisis and unto a path of healthcare reform. The Nation‘s
editor and publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel
encourages Americans to “remind
legislators why we put them in office,” mobilize and improve their own
lives. It is time for Obama, too, to communicate better with the
nation, stresses vanden Heuvel: “I think Obama needs to get outside of
Washington and speak as he did during the campaign.”
