    They started talking about Obama's "radical agenda" before he took the oath of office.  Long ago they learned that they can dominate the discussion by seizing the framing early on and then repeating it over and over until it sticks. Even when what they say is manifestly a lie.

    We haven't figured out how to do that.  

    It's the Supreme Court, stupid!

      There's not a damned thing that's hard to figure out about that.  It's been allowed to happen for 40 years since the Powell Memorandum, continues to be allowed to happen.  That can only be the case if complicity in the agenda is at root.
