The challenge before us
We have a big challenge before us.
President Obama is in deep doo-doo.
Our task is to pull the President out of trouble. There are wars and more wars to be fought. There are more homes to be foreclosed on. There are still many workers waiting to be unemployed. Gas prices need to be raised. The price of food is still too low.
We supported President Obama. We have to help him complete the mission embarked on by the high-road capitalists who need to accumulate more wealth so they can overcome the extreme right-wing low-road capitalists. We need to get behind the President so the better capitalists win this struggle to defeat their right-wing rivals.
I have been hearing some grumblings that we in the leadership of the CPUSA say one thing at closed meetings and we say another thing publicly through our public speeches, the PW and PA. What is not understood is that this is the new normal of American politics. We want to fit in.
Tears come to my eyes every time I see President Obama standing in front of the Stars and Stripes.
We are in a new era.
This is a new day.
Forward, comrades, to another Obama victory.
