    I too have grown tired of these same things.

    As a matter of fact I sometimes rail at these Ed and Rachel shows even though they're closer to my editorial beliefs than their competition, and for the same reason - it just never gets to the next level. It's all coming from a place of helplessness. So I watch less now.

    Also there is hardly any media coverage of any positions on meaningful issues to the left of the administration so nothing gets traction.

      Even "moderate" dems ought to be willing to stand up and say something like "I support the President's goal of taking a balanced approach to deficit reduction. But Social Security and Medicare are not part of that deficit. Those programs are fully funded for decades. These programs work, the American people need them and support them, and cutting Medicare and Social Security will only hurt our fragile economy and do nothing to ease the deficit."

      Reforms come from below. No man with four aces howls for a new deal.

        Dems could point out that the two biggest drivers of the deficit have been the two unfunded wars in the middle east and the Bush tax cuts for the extremely rich. Republicans need to admit to that reality and be ready to address it before any deal on the deficit can be reached.
