    you think there is no strategy at all, just anger and retaliation?

    •  That's their "strategy" at least for their base (4+ / 0-)

      Be angry and pissed off about as much as possible. This is the party who perfected the message of Fear! FEAR! FEAR!! GODDAMNIT I SAID FEAR

      Now the puppetmasters of this fear-o-rama are happily engaged in disaster capitalism. Buying up public assets at firesale prices, etc. so there is more to it than just the anger and lashing out but that's the plan for how to make it happen.

      There are lies, damn lies, and statistics but they all pale in comparison to conservative talking points.

      since Clinton "stole" H.W.'s second term. Filibuster reform just fortifies their current excuse.

      That's my take.

      The 3rd Way has squandered our Resistance for a pocket full of mumbles, Such are promises All lies and jests; still a kossack's about the horse race And disregards the effects...
