  •  what is needed (0+ / 0-)

    more than lockboxes is to stop fostering the "there's no difference" meme so that GOTV is off the hook for 2012.  because we, and obama, need a dem congress, the more liberal the better.  

    because, as has been said over and over, this is really not about obama at all. do you think we'd be having this ridiculous debate if pelosi were still speaker? it is absolutely imperative that we stop poisoning the well with defeatist memes just because obama has disappointed.  

    because you can bet your bippies the GOP will keep trying the ryan plan over and over and over.  speaking of the ryan plan, it is exhibit a for establishing that there really is a difference between the parties and why the standard line here is a gross overreaction to the vaguely proposed cuts coming from obama. the ryan plan is "gutting" and "destroying."  by the way, even dean says the programs need streamlining.

    oh, and it'd be grand if people quit presenting speculation and opinion as fact.

    that's what's needed, imHo.

      Repeating it over and over will not make it true.

      This is about Obama and his making this long term battle worse (as are many Dems) when they keep talking about things that are complete lies just to make up an argument they hope to win.
