    If that doesn't work, what should Democrats be doing?

    I guess you'll have some answers in your next diary.

      I get that by being president Obama is the de-facto leader of the Democratic Party. So that's a problem. Post-partisan Obama has shown that he only confronts Republican extremism lightly in election years, and never at other times. For all of his reputation as the greatest communicator to be president he has made no effort to call out the Republican Party for its racist, anti-woman, anti-middle class, and in fact, anti-American goals and agenda.

      Couple this with the corruption that money has had on every elected official and most appointed ones, as well as a corporate media owned by the Republican Party and you will understand that the vast majority of this country has no voice for the things that made the American Dream what it used to be.

      If Democrats want to win they need to do what Obama won't: call out the Republicans for the unprincipled, lying mother f*ckers that they are.
