    I read through a few of their position papers. They are fairly thoughtful and nuanced.

    In an ideal world, the voters would go for this stuff. Little things like an extra tax credit here and extra tax credit there. In fact, their positions pretty much parallel the Obama Admin's policies. No drama. Mild sensible reforms.

    But they are forgettting that this mild sh*t don't win elections here in the US. People are toooo damn stooopid here in the US. They don't want no mild milquetoast policies. They want redmeat-spitting face-kicking policies. The right wants to see illegal immigrants flogged at high noon. The left want to see Bush cronies frogged-marched, tarred and feathered.

    This is the central failing of the Obama admin. Too sensible. Note enough redmeat for the STUPID. The SUPID needs drama. redmeat. Reality TV. Soundbites. Not some arcane tax cuts they don't understand.
