  •  Tea Party also derailed healthcare reform (4+ / 0-)

    In part because Democrats made the stupendously-stupid blunder of holding truly open townhall meetings on healthcare, which the Tea Party took advantage of by crashing and turning the headlines to their favor. It was a collossal blunder by Democratic leaders, that probably cost us the public-option and perhaps more. Wtf were Democratic leaders thinking? Did they learn nothing from 32 years of Republicans controlling the media? If you have a 'townhall' then you limit who can come, it's that simple. It's a marketing device, not a consensus-building mechanism, let alone a decision-making one.

    Fukuyama is wrong on many things, but he's not an idiot.
