42. I would add two more things to that. The creation of an entire astroturf movement AND the withering
Edited on Mon Apr-04-11 12:00 PM by stevenleser
opposition of an entire cable news network and media empire dedicated 24x7 to taking down the President and his agenda.

I'm sorry, no progressive agenda would have stood up to the Tea Party + Fox News/NewsCorp in 2008-2010. It's something we have never seen before and were not prepared to deal with.

Progressives COULD have responded to this by putting together a grass roots movement to rival the Tea Party in order to support progressive change, but that did not happen for whatever reason, at least not until Wisconsin.
