    The Reaganauts - and that's who we're still dealing with - have demonized activist government effectively. Did we hear Obama starting to shift the Overton window in the speech? Shifting the debate on the ground enough to overcome the gerrymander is a job for the infantry. Candidates are naturally cautious - which I find cowardly but I've never run for anything - so the debate has to shift before or during the 2014 primary season.

    Krugman makes the case with his economic analysis. Who will make the case with shovel ready projects? And what are they? Federal solar infrastructure push? High speed rail? I don't have these answers or even enough ideas for a diary, much less a website, but time's a waste'n. Protecting SS, Medicare, Medicaid is all fine and needed but we need a forward looking movement. Hiring a bunch of teachers, cops, firefighters is standard and good but not big. If liberalism is coming back it's time to go big.

    If you didn't like the news today, go out and make some of your own.
