It's over - the Reagan Revolution is dead and about to be buried

Bye Bye Rove you evil fuck! Bye Bye Grover you treasonous scumbag! Bye fucking bye - thank you Obama - of course everyone wants more but as they admitted last week you destroyed 30 years of piss trickling down on poor people.

Yes we Can - only people can take them down.

I think that the death of the Reagan Revolution is premature. As long as the generation of politicians that came of age and into politics DURING this dark time in our history still holds power, the Reagan legacy is still going to be a BIG problem.

18. I'm with you!

Unless the Democratic party starts doing a better job of boldly standing up for and explaining the need to maintain traditional Democratic ideas like Social Security, Unions, Medicare, Education, Wall Street Regulation, and raising the minimum wage, the conservative ideas that began to make people vote against their own interests in the early 1980's are not going away anytime soon.

Don't forget that because of Fox News, a.k.a. Goebbelsvision, the mainstream media will still feel compelled to give radical right ideas legitimacy. All you have to do is listen to David Gregory, Wolf Blitzer, or Joe Scarborough to know this is true.

A self-fulfiling prophecy. Obama isn't playing that game, neither were the people at the DNC and the thousands who listened to a simple message from Obama about what WE could do.

Those who want to mock from the sidelines, how can we say they were with us?. That's the conclusion I finally reached.

Those with'skin in the game,' are going to keep on working. Those who don't, will do what they do best. Stand back and see if we get anything done then fly in like crows to steal when they see something worth getting.

I've worked with organizing and the naywayers show up like clockwork after anything is accomplished to come and feed. Too good to do the work, but glad to share in the results of the work.

it'll be okay, though.

34. While we have reason enough to be hopeful, I don't yet think it's dead.

If the next 4 years brings economic progress as it starts to undo some of Reagan's legacy, like movement towards more protectionism and Fair Trade over Unfettered Trade, a resurgence of unions, investment in our infrastructure, then I think Reagan's legacy will be completely dead in 10 years.

But today, I worry there is still too much trickle down trickling out of the mouths of too many Americans.

Drinking my last swig of Blue Moon, I toast to the death of the Reagan Revolution, eventually.

Obama is on TV bragging about how great the deal is - because it cut taxes.

I called him President Reagan as I left my sister's house to avoid listening to him. He has spent 4 year embracing Reaganomics.

The Reagan Revolution has completely taken over the Democratic Party.

Rather than being dead - it is dominant.

BTW - with the new Obama/Bush tax cuts, the richest 20% get 3 times as much in tax cuts as the poorest 60%.

Record low tax rates on 98% of the country were just locked in and made permanent.

Unions are being rapidly neutered and villified on a bipartisan basis.

Public schools are being villified on a bipartisan basis with pro-charter school folks being appointed in charge of education by Democrats.

And thats' just right off the tip of the tongue.

Hard to see how that's a dead and burried Reagan revolution. The only reason it's dead is because he has mostly gotten everything he wanted and even more than he himself put into place.

Two years later the GOP had one of the biggest House takeovers in history, darn near got the senate, took a majority of state legislatures and governorships, just in time, no coincidentally, to control redistricting that secured their districts for the next decade.

it was no coincidence about them taking over the state houses. It was completely intentional. They had a game plan and executed it very well. Many people here and elsewhere were pissed with Obama and were going to "teach the Democrats a lesson" in the worst year they could have done it in. The year that decided who would control the statehouses for redistricting.

And what completely amazes me is they wonder why.

73. Some folks missed this from last week

<snip>
Appearing on Fox News Thursday, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said President Barack Obama has successfully broken the will of Republicans in the House and has created an “internal civil war” amidst “fiscal cliff” negotiations.

“He’s been using this, and I must say with great skill — and ruthless skill and success — to fracture and basically shatter the Republican opposition,” Krauthammer said. “His objective from the very beginning was to break the will of the Republicans in the House, and to create an internal civil war. And he’s done that.”

He said Obama has been pressuring Republicans to consider increasing tax rates ever since he got reelected because he knew it could create tension within the GOP. Krauthammer added that Obama would rather score a political victory than actually deal with the out-of-control national debt.


And they did for the first time in 22 years

74. Not so fast. The Bush tax cuts were made permanent for 98% of Americans.

Reagan would be proud.
