The Fire This Time: America's Withdrawal From the Fight Against Racism Guarantees More Fergusons 25.8.2014 American Prospect
(AP Photo/St. Louis Post-Dispatch, J.B. Forbes) A protester shouts as she moves away from a line of riot police in Ferguson, Missouri, on Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2014. (AP Photo/St. Louis Post-Dispatch, J.B. Forbes) This article originally appeared on the  Policy Shop  website of Demos.   I remember the stunned reaction of so many Americans back in the summer of 2005 when legions of poor black people in desperate circumstances seemed to have suddenly and inexplicably materialized in New Orleans during the flooding that followed Hurricane Katrina. Expressions of disbelief poured in from around the nation: “How can this be happening?” “I had no idea conditions were that bad.” “My God, is this America?” People found themselves staring at the kind of poverty they thought had been largely wiped out decades earlier.

He made an eerie, oddly-lit, outdoor appearance in the city’s French Quarter on the evening of September 15 to announce that his administration ...

Wonkblog: The real reason Obama’s second term, like his predecessors’, has gone so badly 11.8.2014 Washington Post
You can’t really dispute Lawrence Summers’s suggestion  on Monday that second terms, including President Obama’s, often seem “ineffectual.” George W. Bush’s Katrina and the financial crisis, Bill Clinton’s impeachment, Ronald Reagan’s Iran-Contra, Richard Nixon’s resignation, Lyndon Johnson’s Vietnam War: The list goes on. Perhaps surprisingly for a renowned economist, Summers draws causality out of this correlation. He suggests that presidents should be limited to one term, perhaps six years ...
