Sometimes, you have to step into the ring, actually prepared to fight.
During this week’s presidential election debate, I expected the President to step into the ring – up to the podium, as it were – and fight.
I expected him to defend his opponent’s recent attack on the “47 percent.”
I expected him to defend hard-working Americans against elitist attitudes.
I expected him to defend me – and millions of people, who like me, are unemployed through no fault of our own.
Instead, he stammered.
He looked down.
