  •  Dems need to use this strong (none)
    straightforward and HONEST language every day of the week, not just in response to SOTU.

    •  This goes for the Dem talking heads too. (none)
      Dem talking heads need to call out Rep talking heads when they use talking points full of truthiness (B.S. passed of as reality).

      Dem talking heads  need to stand up, look into the camera or right down at the Rep and call then a liar on camera. They need to stop trying to debate against lies, you can not win that way, the truth gets lost and the Reps win by giving the perception of being right. Call them a liar, explain what the lie is, and you defuse the talking point on the spot and put a cut in the Rep talking head's credibility and by extention the Reps.

      The same goes for Dem talking heads who hear a reporter repeat a Rep talking point that is based on false facts. The reporter needs to be called out and corrected on camera. If a reported is called out on a regular basis viewers will think the person is an idiot and he/she will clean up their act or lose ratings. This forces them to do their jobs.

      We can not take spin anymore. We need to not just fight spin with more spin, or debate it, but call it out first, then make them back it up, and when they can not, make them apologize.
