To the Editor:
David Brooks has provided an erudite analysis of Obama’s acceptance speech, highlighting the lack of any truly large-scale programs.
However, it should be noted that the Republicans would demonize any such programs to the point where they would severely endanger Obama’s election chances.
I believe Obama is counting on the fact that, if he wins the election, the Republicans will have lost their ability to “just say no”; they will have to act more in the best interest of the country if they are looking forward to the next elections.
