Arianna Huffington's Third World America 4
I'm still reading Arianna Huffington's Third World America: How Our Politicians Are Abandoning the Middle Class and Betraying the American Dream. What impressed me in my latest reading was that Arianna was not chained to a particular ideology. Although she is believed to be on the Left, she said some things that would resonate with a number of conservatives: that the federal government botched up Katrina, and that the teachers' unions inhibit educational progress. But she also criticized President Barack Obama from a liberal perspective, contending that only a minority of the stimulus money goes to infrastructure, which can create jobs and is badly needed.
