  •  I recce'd this because it is a worthy subject, (4+ / 0-)

    and it needs to be addressed... just not exactly in this way. It is important because this is how the GOP undermines us.

    Talking about "the debt/deficit" is a way to blow a lot of hot air about nothing and sound serious about serious issues (ie, "the economy"). And yes, you bring up an excellent point in that the Democratic Party is typically very bad about getting messages across.

    The economy is a big subject with a lot of confusing facts and nuances. The Democrats try to educate with each word uttered but it goes past a lot of the people. It sounds "political". People seek simple solutions, and the GOP are great at making good bumper-sticker "solutions" to big problems. (Most of their "solutions" are worthless).

    What we need to have is some of the folks in the spotlight retort with "Yes, the deficit is important-- and the best way to solve the deficit is with jobs. Jobs for Americans. Productivity for Americans. You're solution was to ship the jobs overseas and reward the corporations that did that with tax breaks. It hasn't worked."

    "The best way to solve the deficit is with jobs".

    And just go from that.

    The internet is ruled by cat people. Dog people are busy playing outside.
