    Progressives are so proud of ourselves with our pocketfuls of "facts" and doses of reality but it doesn't mean squat if we cannot communicate with the "Freds" out there.

    We cannot afford to complicate things. Just from a straight line APPLES to APPLES comparison of spending, Bush spent more than Obama. The end.

    That ignores the impact of tax cuts and multiplier effects and all that other stuff that WE know. It does little good if only Progressives are content with our knowledge about the "truth."

    The average American actually believes that their taxes went up under Obama! Even though their taxes went down!

    Yes, it makes no sense. That's why we need to remove ambiguity and cut to the chase.
