Obama Is the Greatest Force for Equality in 50 Years - The Atlantic


"But with the full panorama of his presidency coming into view, Obama’s economic legacy is impressive, even historic. To extend the medical metaphor, Obama has played the part of stoic surgeon in the E.R. His demeanor is rarely anything but placid. But with the operations drawing to a close, the body politic, once in critical condition, has dramatically improved thanks to several targeted interventions.



A new examination from the Council of Economic Advisers credits the Obama presidency for the most aggressive and successful attempt to reduce inequality in half a century. “President Obama has overseen the largest increase in federal investment to reduce inequality since the Great Society,” the economists write."

Why Donald Trump Should Not Be President - The New York Times

"When Donald Trump began his improbable run for president 15 months ago, he offered his wealth and television celebrity as credentials, then slyly added a twist of fearmongering about Mexican “rapists” flooding across the Southern border.

From that moment of combustion, it became clear that Mr. Trump’s views were matters of dangerous impulse and cynical pandering rather than thoughtful politics. Yet he has attracted throngs of Americans who ascribe higher purpose to him than he has demonstrated in a freewheeling campaign marked by bursts of false and outrageous allegations, personal insults, xenophobic nationalism, unapologetic sexism and positions that shift according to his audience and his whims.

Donald Trump Either Lied to the Republicans or Broke the Law (Exclusive)

"Donald Trump committed perjury. Or he looked into the faces of the Republican faithful and knowingly lied. There is no third option.



It has become an accepted reality of this presidential campaign that Trump spins a near-endless series of falsehoods. For months, the media has struggled with this unprecedented situation—a candidate who, unlike other politicians who stretch the truth, simply creates his own reality. Trumps regularly peddles “facts” that aren’t true, describes events that never happened or denies engaging in actions that everyone saw him do. He utters his falsehoods so fast that before reporters have the chance to correct one, he has tossed out five or six more."

Can Trump really win Pennsylvania? Stranger things have happened in 2016 | US news | The Guardian







"For decades, Republican presidential candidates have had the same relationship with the state of Pennsylvania that Charlie Brown had with a football.



With 20 electoral votes, the Keystone State has always been a tempting prize to aim for. But since 1988, in a geographically diverse state famously described by Clinton aide James Carville as “Philadelphia on one side, Pittsburgh on the other and Alabama in between”, the GOP has seen that prize swept away from its sights.



As John Brabender, a veteran Republican consultant in the state, told the Guardian, Pennsylvania is simply tough for any Republican to win. He or she would always need to build a “strange coalition”, he said, “of blue-collar conservative Democrats that are in the western side of the state with moderate college-educated professional women in the eastern side of the state”.

Obamacare Has Increased Insurance Coverage Everywhere | FiveThirtyEight

"When congressional candidates last hit the campaign trail in 2014, one word seemed to be at the top of the agenda for virtually every Republican: Obamacare. But that was before most of the law’s provisions took effect. Two years later, the health law seems to have faded as a campaign issue.



New data released this month might give a hint as to why: The uninsured rate — the share of the population without health insurance — dropped in every congressional district in the country between 2013 and 2015, according to the American Community Survey."

Clinton’s Leading In Exactly The States She Needs To Win | FiveThirtyEight





"Here at FiveThirtyEight, our favorite election-related chart is what we officially call the “winding path to 270 electoral votes” and unofficially call the snake. Designed by my colleague Aaron Bycoffe, it lines the states up from most favorable for Hillary Clinton (Hawaii, Maryland) to best for Donald Trump (Wyoming, Alabama) based on the projected margin of victory in each one. The snake is bisected by a line indicating 269 electoral votes: cross this line — meaning you get 270 electoral votes — and you win the election."

The Folly of the Protest Vote - The New York Times

"Last week, after I delivered a speech at the impressive campus of Morgan State University, a historically black college in northeast Baltimore, a woman approached the mike during the question-and-answer period to raise an issue that she and I both found frustrating: What to say to young people, particularly young African-Americans, who have decided either not to vote in the forthcoming presidential election or to cast a protest vote for a third-party candidate who will most assuredly lose?



This is a very real issue this cycle. Many of these young people feel that there is no good choice between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.



On Sept. 4, The New York Times published an article pointing out the devastating impact this lack of enthusiasm could have on Clinton’s prospects:



“Young African-Americans, like all voters their age, are typically far harder to drive to the polls than middle-aged and older Americans. Yet with just over two months until Election Day, many Democrats are expressing alarm at the lack of enthusiasm, and in some cases outright resistance, some black millennials feel toward Mrs. Clinton.”

Foreign Wars and Terrorism - The New York Times

"Dealing with extremism abroad and its spillover at home will present an enormously complex challenge for the next president. Over the last five years, conflicts in Syria and Iraq have continued to frustrate the United States diplomatically, sapped military resources and provided a breeding ground for Islamic State radicals, who have spread bloodshed and destruction in the region and the West.



The multidimensional nature of the problem was on full view this week: a cease-fire in the Syrian civil war seemed ready to collapse; American forces prepared to recapture Mosul from the Islamic State; and terrorist attacks occurred in New York, New Jersey and Minnesota. President Obama’s successor will have to confront these threats and understand what connects them.



As Mr. Obama has discovered, there is no easy solution to any of these problems, not least the sources and consequences of extremism, which may account for the lack of a sustained discussion in the presidential campaign about how America should deal with the issues.



Hillary Clinton responded in an even-tempered fashion after the latest attacks in the United States last weekend. And she has advanced prescriptions for the Middle East, which mostly make sense, apart from a questionable idea for a no-fly zone in Syria, which Mr. Obama has rejected in part because it risks a confrontation with Russia.



Donald Trump has offered virtually nothing except fearmongering and notions that could make matters worse, including a proposal for “extreme vetting” that could prevent most Muslims from immigrating to America. Apart from its vindictiveness, such an approach can only help the extremists by fueling anti-American sentiment among moderate Muslims everywhere. Meanwhile, Mr. Trump claims he has a plan somewhere in his possession to defeat the extremists but refuses to divulge it, perhaps because he hasn’t the foggiest idea of what to do."
