  •  They are playing the 1995 landscape. (3+ / 0-)

    Really, everybody around the President was having their heyday or coming of age experience in the mid-90s.

    Once you recall that time, and then look at the strategies and tactics they actually use, it's obvious. They are intellectually and philosophically on the playing field where rancorous behavior was a big voter concern, triangulation was the magic key to getting laws passed, just threaten to use our awesome military and nations complied, just have the financiers have their way and GDP went up....

    It's not snark that they are stuck in 1995. It's actual analysis, and I think it's true.

    Sadly, all the expertise of that era has been proven to be a delusion.

    Until we break the corporate virtual monopoly on what we hear and see, we keep losing, don't matter what we do.

      Americans experienced both a huge political awakening in the past ten years and lost their wealth.  Totally different time, but they haven't noticed any of that.  It is that bad, imo.
