In President Obama, you have a man who fetishes the power of his utterances themselves. If he says ‘immediate help’, then it has been granted. If he says ‘jobs’, then a million flowers of work bloom, unless mowed down by those pesky Republicans, of course.

If you want help help, well, that gets back to old-fashioned concepts of thrift and neighborliness. Up that: Forward!
