    •  Pretty much everything he said. (14+ / 0-)

        If we talk in wonky terms, we're pussies who refuse to engage the aggressive people, and we totally lost the debate. After all, the American People don't want details, they want broad themes and a sense that you're on their side.

        If we talk in platitudes, we're spinning instead of giving facts and totally lost the debate. After all, the American People don't want broad themes, they want details, details, details.
