An Economy That Works For Everyone?

I recently received the following email from Michelle Obama:

"Garrett --

I'm always amazed by how Barack balances his responsibilities as president, a husband, and a dad.

But sometimes even he needs a little help. And this campaign is going to take all of us pitching in.

All of the things we've poured our hearts into -- from passing health care reform to fighting for an economy that works for everyone -- are on the line. 

I know I don't want to wake up on November 7th wondering if I could have done more. So I'm doing everything I can between now and Election Day to make sure we can keep moving this country forward for four more years. 

We've only got a few more hours before an important fundraising deadline. Please support this campaign by giving $3 or more today:

From all of us, thanks. 


Even HE needs a little help, huh?  Well, as nauseating as that statement is to me, it is the "fighting for an economy that works for everyone" comment that has me wondering.  What kind of an economy does work for EVERYONE?  Does that kind of economy exist?  Is it even conceivable, desirable or attainable?

I think not.  Is the President spending all his time chasing Nirvana?  Yep.  Is that going to actually help the Country?  Nope.  So much for the bring the great Pragmatist.
