One more unwise butting in on my part:

It seems to me that there are actually THREE views about this report, and I’m taking the unacknowledged “third view”.

Hmm. Viewing it’s history, it seems to me to be a piece of bubblethink, percolating in a Washingtonian / upper-crust urban milieu for many months while its base assumptions and biases went unchallenged. Then it got to the Obama administration and it was carelessly floated out there.

I don’t think it’s a deliberate hit piece. I think it’s a gaffe: a window on how Washington looks at American proles.
