Keith Olbermann will be back on the air this evening at 8:00 Eastern time — this time on CurrentTV. More than anyone, Olbermann is the voice of the Democratic, middle class, Baby Boomers in America.
The middle class made our country great, but it has been on the decline since 1981, with the exception of the mid to late 1990s. It’s never been tougher to move from the lower class into the middle class, thanks to conservative policies.
Most of the manufacturing jobs, that at one time paid decent wages, are now in Communist China. Years ago, the majority would have been outraged that another country was destroying our economy — especially a communist country. That outrage would have been shared by Republicans and Democrats alike. Now, right-wingers have been brainwashed to believe that it’s okay for our jobs to go overseas if it will help big business, so only the Democrats are left fighting for our country. And we’re not winning.
So it’s good to have Keith back. He’s on Current TV, which will make the show especially hated by right-wingers since it’s is owned by Al Gore.
