    going on here, too. People seem to be forgetting that the Republican right still controls the economic agenda to the point that the only question about SS inside the beltway is how much to cut it.
    It's bad politics and bad policy for Dems to believe that the dying off of traditional overt white racism, etc., alone will guarantee continued success. Eventually the Republicans will abandon overt appeals to racism, homophobia, and theocracy; and voters who now correctly understand Republicans to be hostile to them will consider whether Democrats offer an effective economic alternative. We have to make the case that "jobs" does not mean more tax cuts and deregulation for "job creators."
