Who Counts

David Frum wrote an Op-Ed in the Times about how to stabilize the wobbly three-legged stool of the Republican Party. I actually thought he diagnosed the problem fairly well, but then he made his recommendation on how to fix the situation.

What the Republican Party desperately needs is a domestic program that responds to the values and needs of the tens of millions of American families making around $70,000 a year. That’s not an impossible order. But it will take some new thinking by our presidential candidates and other leaders to meet it.

Presumably, the interest in getting elected is to run the country. If you're serious about running a country, however, you might not want to set a target household income that is $20,000 greater than the national median. Then again, whoever said they were serious about running a country.
