    And so part of what we’re going to have to do is to marry a genuine, passionate concern about middle-class families and everybody who is trying to get into the middle class to show them that we’re working just as hard for them as we are for our environmental agenda,
    I mean I'm just some dumfuck here making occasional comments on Dkos but even I can see the stupid framing in this statement.

    Why oh why is, supposedly one of the most astute politicians of our time, framing climate change concern and the concerns of the lower and middle classes as oppositional.

    The correct and accurate frame is of coarse that efforts for investment in climate change mitigation and all environmental issues are naturally allied with economic benefits for us 99%.

    To miss that framing is gross political malpractice.
