    That past is prologue. We need to ask: Do such groups now have it in them to stop pretending that each of the Obama administration’s various awful policies is some kind of anomaly?
    I don't know why the President's second-term start was not obvious.  Obama embodies moderate conservatism and, in many regards, a continuation of policies of his two predecessors.  That certainly wasn't going to change if he was re-elected.

      but that doesn't mean they''re still not pissed as hell.

      And at this point, the second go-round, we're putting the centrists on notice earlier.

      They can either get on board with us today and win in 2014 or don't and lose.

      There'll be no more pretending they care about elections. They'll have to prove it.

      What's the point of letting neoliberals into the tent when neoliberalism is burning down the campground?
      Since elections will never change the ownership of government, why does our strategy rely entirely upon them?
