  •  No it's not defeatist bullshit (0+ / 0-)

    What's defeatist bullshit is this vast implication that he and the Democrats are selling us out.   What the hell does that attitude get us but Republican rule?

    I'm hearing that voice you're calling for but it's not designed for you.  It can't be.  If you're responding to posts on DailyKos you are not the target audience.  I'm not that audience either.  It has to be the millions of Americans that never visit a site like this, that only trade pictures of their puppies on Facebook, that get their news from CNN, ABC, Fox - corporate-owed media conglomerates.  Talk to anyone that falls into that group and they're going to have zero idea what the hell you're ranting about.

    •  I wasn't talking about Obama. (0+ / 0-)

      Although I used that quote as an illustration of failed messaging and a failure to properly diagnose and treat the problem, it's not just him.

      NOBODY has called them saboteurs, and they've been systematically and ruthlessly sabotaging our country for years, the last 5 years it's been completely naked. There's a highly publicized paper trail. The problem is that the "serious people" in politics hide that paper trail because they are afraid of what Republicans and corporate sponsors will say, at least that's their excuse.

      People know that the Republicans 'took hostages' but they don't know why. They think it's to reduce taxes, something that the Democrats bend over backwards to reinforce. It's not to reduce taxes. It's to shrink and destroy government.

      30 years of failed conservative policies and nobody on the Democratic side of the aisle, nobody 'serious' will call them out on it.

      Failed conservative policies have broken America and that was a feature, not a bug.

      Democracy - 1 person 1 vote. Free Markets - More dollars more power.
