Covering the Modern Campaign

Friday, October 12, 2012


The way campaigns are run is changing rapidly and it's up to reporters to catch up. OTM producers PJ Vogt and Chris Neary talk about what the modern campaign looks like from the inside with Sasha Issenberg, author of the book Victory Lab: The Secret Science of Winning Campaigns. You'll also hear from political consultant Hal Malchow and Columbia Professor Don Green - each of whom helped change the way campaigns are run.

In my opinion, the middle class has fallen victim to the CGI rope-a-dope. Since the inflation inspired by LBJ's failure to finance the Vietnam War properly, average earners have been hypnotized about 'keeping up with inflation'. The economy (as measured by our GDP) has grown at a point and one half OVER inflation over the same period. The result is average wage earners can no longer afford to pay for things that make them little more than wage slaves. Affordable college educations are one of the casualties - along with balanced budgets, personal savings accounts, and yearly vacations - as the country shifts income into upper tier pockets.

In short, we are being robbed.

I am a minority 62,live in westchester county, NY, retired, "own" a home have a 401k, pension and social security. I have five grandkids which two are in college. The oldest in community college(boy) and the second in hoftra (girl). I have worked and saved and able to do all the things I want to do in retirement.I will vote for President Obama because I think he is the best of two evils. All politicans are smoke and mirrors. Voters have to know read between the line and that is not true.

1. Why are the debates held in private colleges. Why not community colleges.

2. With two grandkids in college I am over weilmed to know the the cost of college. It is outragious. The book they have to buy and don't use, not to mention the books the professor write that they have to purchase form the college and don't use.

I am not a nieve person. I understand business. but at some point we have to stop and say what the hell is going on with education (4% of the budget). What the hell
