Today in PostOpinions

President Obama’s speech in Kansas dominates our debate today. The Post editorial board supports his focus on inequality, though it finds his policy prescriptions lacking. E.J. Dionne writes approvingly of Obama’s channeling the progressivism of Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt while “eviscerating” supply-side economics. Matt Miller initially found the speech “fantastic,” but on further reflection came close to The Post editorial board 's view, observing that the president failed to offer “bold, creative responses” to match his rhetoric. Post bloggers have also been dueling over the speech: On The InsidersCarter Eskew writes that Republicans will find it tough to beat Obama if he sticks to talking about inequality, but Ed Rogers argues that voters could very well tune Obama out, since they’ve heard it all from him before.
