Description

Only united action will defuse America’s financial time bomb. The challenges could make Obama truly great, or defeat him, writes Harold Evans America, the morning after the night before, is asking what the noise was all about. We’ve endured 18 months of character assassination, starting in the spring of 2011 with 11 Republican wannabes. Remember the Texan gunslinger Governor Rick “Oops” Perry, the Tea Party’s shrill heroine Michele Bachmann, the pizza king “nine, nine, nine” Herman Cain? They at least provided some comic moments. This year’s general election slugfest produced none. We’ve been assailed by some $500 billion of television advertising by the candidates, who told us they “approve this message” of evasions, half-truth and lies. For the first time maverick anonymous donors entered the defamation derby, authorised to torment us by the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling in Citizens United in 2010 that you can’t have free speech without money, and lots of it.
