  •  The left has dropped the ball for decades (0+ / 0-)

    Which is the single most important reason we are in the situation we are in today. The lack of organization and focus has been very disappointing. The right-wing agenda has been consistent and focused during that time and its techniques obvious. Yet the left intelligencia practically left the room and sniped from the outside rather than mixing it up with the corporate agenda--in fact, I would go further and say that much of the left joined the corporate agenda and abandoned their role  leaving the field free from someone like Obama to be a pretend center-left candidate then rule as a center-right President in that crucial first year where he could have taken powerful steps to reform our system and revive the economy. Instead bogus progressives on this site and elsewhere cheered on the administration.

    Chris Hedges covers much of this in his work and I leave it to you to read him.
