Great incidental music by seasick steve, but the whole thread of the programme seemed to be the BBC's inexplicable shock that Obama hasnt fixed America for all the folk who elected him! Well pardon me if I can see the wood for the trees, socialism doesnt work especially in a free market economy like the US. It goes against the ggrain and even theose let down by faiiled banks etc only want to work and improve themselves. The only people making a fuss about poverty were the wealthy yanks in media who obviously arent going without anytime soon! I have met some dirt poor North Americans and Canadians. My family had 160 acres of praire in the depression and ran dogs on coyotes for a nickel a hide! What the bleeding heart liberals dont seem to realise is that most poor folk would rather the economy was fixed then the jobs will come and last longer rather than stupid welfare to work schemes. Yanks and the BBC eh!
