    Is Obama the Worst President Ever?
    It's WND, so I won't click on it.
    But it seems to be bleeding over into the Kossacks, like a flu.
    This is how Progressives lose elections even though we are the vast majority of Americans.
    "A Liberal is so open minded, he won't take his own side in a fight." Can't remember who that quote is from.

    •  Progressives are a small (7+ / 0-)

      minority of Americans. 50-70% of Americans support progressive positions on some issues but most of them won't vote for progressives.

      and IMO FG is right on the voting. But, defining labels have become pretty fluid lately. Despite what Michael Steel keeps repeating like a parrot America is a center/left country. It isn't center/right and it isn't conservative but it also isn't progressive in our sense.

      We keep having to push it to go further left but we have to remember that it does move slower in some things than we like. If we frame it correctly the people will follow, look at how dealing with LGBT rights as an "Equality Issue" has changed the polling.

      Competing with The Star, National Enquirer, and others for most outrageously stupid tabloid. Rupert Murdoch is charging hard for the annual award too. The "Worst Tabloid Award" should be handed out like The Razzies are.
