Obama Speech Preview

This is a family magazine, so I have to watch my language. Besides, my mother reads this blog. But John Cole pretty much does a mind meld with me over at his place today. He’s feeling — um, not so optimistic about Obama’s speech tonight.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
