  •  And the diary about how OWS defeated Mitt (8+ / 0-)

    shows that these ideas took time to gain traction. I agree they need to get repeated some more.

    If you haven't read that diary (currently on rec list), the important observation was how the national discussion on the economy switched from "debt" and "deficit" to "greed" and "inequality."  The 1% vs the 99% discussion made Romney's 47% video that much more toxic. The beauty part is that the 53% to 47% language originated on the Right via Erick Erickson's tumblr responding to the We Are the 99 Percent one.  So Mitt grabbed onto that number since it was a Right Wing Talking Point.

    Yo can fill in the rest.
