    Every so often, Reid, Pelosi, Obama hits it out of the park.

    They're right on the mark, they're speaking truth through the lies, they're taking a truly pragmatic approach (that is, putting the solutions and reality of the situation before the politics).

    Now - how can we get them all to do it at the same time?

    The inadequate is the enemy of the necessary.

      That's precisely the problem.

      You need to repeat your points relentlessly, at every opportunity, again and again, ad nauseam, and then some.

      That's what the Republicans do so well, and that is why their talking points get stuck in the public mind, while the Democratic message, to the extent there is one, gets lost.

      If we want to start winning, that needs to change. Perhaps this is the beginning of that?

        ... of talking points doesn't compromise.  They don't back down on their core beliefs.

        We do.

        That needs to change.  But that ball's in our leader's court; they don't seem to listen when we plea that they stay true to the party principles.

        The inadequate is the enemy of the necessary.
